We have stayed in the hostel few weeks ago. We were traveling around Mexico and stayed in few hotels along the way. This one was definitely one of the best. Fantastic staff, great atmosphere, great people, yummy breakfast included in the rate, colorful and quirky, clean and simply amazing. Thank you for looking after the strange Polish group. You are ace! x

It's a real shame about the beds in this place, it would be a great hostel if the mattresses were not rock hard and quite small (1,20m / 47 inch for a matrimonial) and if all rooms would face the garden.

The staff is really nice and helpful, they offer affordable and good tours, the garden is cute, and the breakfast is tasty, but we slept so poorly that we would not return here. The single beds in the dormitories might be better but we tried 2 privates with matrimonial beds and both had the insanely hard mattresses.

Also, the first room (# 3) faced the street and was reeeeally noisy, so avoid #2-4. The one facing the garden was quiet though and very nice in context of the price.

So, Azul Cielo, pleeeeease change your mattresses and we will gladly come back!

I recently spent a week in Oaxaca during the Guelaguetza. Azul Cielo was just right. Near the center of town, simple, clean, affordable. Staff was terrific and helpful beyond the call of duty and the fellow travelers a mix of young and older, foreigners and Mexicans. The interior garden and kitchen/lounge areas were comfortable and inviting and having use of the kitchen to make some simple meals with the delicious local produce was a welcome option to restaurant meals.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Recommend an interior room.
