At first it was quiet but gradually filled up, I enjoyed my stay there. Only thing was the water, the shower wasn't brilliant. Roof top was cool to relax and socialise, view is really nice. I would stay again.


Not very clean, good help with tours.

Thanks Jaime for an awesome couple of days here, so friendly on arrival and throughout our stay. Great location close to the Zocalo and the staff always help out if you have any questions. The roof terrace is great. We loved it here!


Showers could be a lot better. They could also inform their guest about not throwing toilet paper in the toilet to avoid clogging it.


Very friendly, smaller hostel which felt like a home. I kept extending my stay because it was so comfortable!


Jaime and the rest of the staff were exceptionally helpful, understanding and friendly. My friend and I kept making changes to our plans and we received a lot of support and good vibes from everybody! And thats why I love this hostel for - understanding the life of a backpacker! Thank you guys!!


Truly enjoyed my stay at Cielo Rojo - Susana and her staff were wonderful, always helpful and even took us out into the Oaxaca nightlife. Will visit again.


The staff make this place, super friendly and helpful. Great place to stay


I definitely enjoyed the people the most, it was the rainy season. The Mitla double tour was pretty good


I had a really good time in Cielo Rojo, the staff are incredible, nice and they made me feel like part of their family. Equipo!!!

My first idea was to stay one night but I ended up staying more because I liked the hostel. Susana and the staff helped me with information about tours and things to do in the city. I love the roof top terrace, such a cool place to chill. If you like to party, they know when and where.

Great hostal. Good value for money. The staff are fun to hang out with and I met some cool people while staying there. The location is good too, easy to walk anywhere in the city. It felt safe as well.


Cielo Rojo is a great place to stay!! The staff is really helpful and suuper flexible, always willing to help! Its location is just what you can ask for, pretty near from hotspots and key sightseeing + the bus terminal. Since my friend and I arrived everyone welcomed us and it felt like family. You can chill out everywhere! I will definetely come back next time, for sure it is THE place to stay in Oaxaca! THANKS SO MUCH for everything!
