“Great Decor, Great Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2013

We loved this place because of the cheerful mexican colorful decor. We also liked the nice sitting areas for hanging out with other travelers. The breakfasts were delicious and regional. We were concerned that it would not be close enough to the center, but it was only 5 minutes walking because the colonial streets are so tiny. Plus lots of interesting things to see when you walk in Oaxaca. You can tell the owners go out of their way to make guest feel at home. Since we were a couple we had a private room with our own shower. They even had candles in the room and they even made our bed in the morning!

I had such a great time at this hostel that I couldn't leave! The staff were very friendly, even showed me some great places in town. The breakfast was SO good! Everything works well, water, wi-fi, great location in a beautiful town. The atmosphere of the space is relaxed, peaceful and beautiful. Aesthetically stunning. Truly the best hostel I have stayed in. I stayed for almost three weeks, it was so good.

It was a pleasure staying at the azul cielo. great staff that was very helpful and good room. the breakfast was pretty great too. so no complaints at all. the only drawback is that since i was there for the film festival it tended to be a slight walk from the santa domingo.

We stayed here for four nights during the Día de los Muertos and enjoyed very much.
The staffs are all kind and very helpful. They have cozy garden, clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, good wi-fi connection, hot water. It's only 10-15 minutes to center. There are big supermarket and local active market close to the hostel where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, excellent oaxaca cheese!

This place is lovely, great service and great price. They offer a couple of tours that makes your visit much richer and easier. It's not as close as others to the Zocalo, but those few extra blocks are worth it.

Esa posada es realmente una parada para las personas que quieran compartir con otras. Un lugar de paz y de colores. La familia que la tiene es muy simpatica, te aconsejaran de la mejor manera de las cosas que hay a hacer a Oaxaca / This place is really amazing, quiet, colorful, friendly and cosy. Just few streets (about 10 minuts) from the center, it's just charming and the hosts are taking care of their guests in the mexican tradition, which means just with the smile and taking time :) Definitively to recommend
