    nice roof terrace with a view of Oaxaca city, good rooms, good facilities only negative point would be that our room was on the side of the road and the door did not close properly, so we heard a lot of noise during the night. and there was no fan so it was a bit warm in the room. but overall we really enjoyed our stay.

    Sweet family-run hostel (a mom and her two sons owning and operating Cielo Rojo) in the heart of Oaxaca. I enjoyed my stay, easily accessed group tours, the zocalo, bars and restaurants. The dorms and hostel facilities were quiet and clean- easy more than most other backpacker hostels I have stayed at. I was also working on this trip so using Cielo Rojo's strong wifi connection made a tremendous difference in providing another layer of security and comfort while in town.

    A simple, clean place to stay on a budget. Small kitchen would come in handy for the latter as well. The mixed dorm only had one wall plug (not next to my bed), which created a need to find a place to plug in things that need charging before going to sleep.

    I stayed at the 10 mixed dorm. It was super hot and uncomfortable to sleep at night. There’s no fan and no AC. Mattresses are ready for the dumpster. They rent a towel for $10 pesos. There were only 2 outlets in the whole rooms and WiFi is extremely weak, almost unusable. This place def needs more TLC. Great location, no curfew, and very inexpensive. I’d pay a little more and stay somewhere else.

    The owner of the place, a woman I found very impolite, directly came after me because I entered the kitchen in the night without wearing a mask, and there was no one with me in the kitchen. She said she does that to protect the others hahaha For me that```'s a red card. I left the next morning!

    You can’t fault the staff’s friendliness or willing to help you (answer any questions you have), however this hostel has FALSE ADVERTISING. When I stayed they didn’t offer breakfast despite saying they do on their page. Moreover, a second inconvenience though not falsely advertised is the lack of plugs (1 per room of 8 beds); and farcically slow Internet. If these things do not sway you then you will enjoy your stay.
