The beds are thin but comfortable, but the frames, and doors, are very noisy at night and in the morning. The breakfast was very plain compared to other hostels. The kitchen and fridge are usable by guests. There is a lounge on the first floor, with TV and comfortable chairs, and more like a dining room on the second floor... More

When checking in the service was terrible, the worker was drunk and he just didn't care about anything. Breakfast was average and random. The rooms are hot with no windows and small, smells really bad! The lady the next day at the desk was lovely and helpful and actually answered our questions! I asked one of the male workers at...

The staff were friendly and spoke very good English. Our private double room was very spacious. The hostel was in a great location, shared bathroom was clean and the breakfast was ok. HOWEVER... We had 500 PESO AND COSMETIC ITEMS STOLEN by the cleaning staff from our "private room". Under the impression we wouldn't have room service, we nipped out... More

A girl of our group got her luggage lost by the flight company: after our group (and so the owner of the luggage) left the hostel, hostel amigo retired her luggage without telling her anything, with a false signature. After that, they denied this fact with the owner, saying that they did not retire anything. I guess they could be... More

If you are on a budget it is totally worth it. It is located a few blocks away of Zócalo and near to most atractions. Staff is friendly and helpful. The building is a bit old and there is no much ambient but is ok for a couple of nights. Basic breakfast and dinner included and totally worth it for... More

The food provided is tasty and make this a great value option, and the location is great as well. We stayed in a private double room which was comfortable enough, especially for the price. We enjoyed our stay until the last night, when the hostel decided to host a drum circle in the downstairs lobby until 11pm. The noise carried... More

Clean, located a few blocks from the zocalo and right by food. The hostel offers a ground level bar and pretty fast wifi. Not the world's cleanest bathrooms but satisfactory none the less. Over the weekend it had more of a party atmosphere so be prepared. All in all very good.

It has a really nice and big rooftop, a great and big breakfast and a nice, standard dinner, both included in the price - 170 MXN per night.

As a cheap hostel that provides free wifi, breakfast and dinner included with your payment is very good. For 190 pesos per night you can't expect a five stars service, food and wifi signal/speed. There are a few details like The wifi didn't work a whole day and the first night there were this guys making a lot of noise... More

Loved the breakfast provided by Victor and his team every morning!! Miss your morning Cumbia, salsa music.... The location is perfect- 2 minutes walk from the main square and close to the railway stations.

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
