Location is excelent, few blocks from a metro station, few blocks from Zocalo square and Bellas Artes and Templo Mayor, retaurants and everything nearby. Good breakfast and Wifi. I´ve read some reviews complainig about noise, but as I noticed all the noise cames from the guests, it´s up to the guests to behave properly, they make noise in all hostels.... More

Nice hostel! The staff was very friendly, breakfast was more than I expected and you can't have a better location. Only the shower wasn't that clean. Before 11.30 p.m there was a lot of noise, but then they turned the music off.

The hostel is very well situated in the heart of Mexico city, but always full of noisy young Israeli, they came here after finishing their conspiration and stay for months. The only person will feel comfortable in this hostal are the nightwolves . The rooms are very dark, there's no wifi in the second floor. A bad experience overall

The place is very central . 4 blocks from the Zocale, you can't beat that for this price. I stayed in a private room witch was priced at 320 MXN. I think the price is not bad, but for the same price you stay next door in a real hotel in a single room. The place is safe, clean, ceilings... More

We loved our stay at Hostel Amigo - our room and a huge high ceiling so it was cool at night, and felt very spacious, Breakfast was amazing - pancakes! Unheard of at a hostel! Delicious. Very helpful staff, free computers to use and great location. Highly recommended!

Great location in Centro Mexico City about 5 minutes walk away from Zocalo. A few blocks away from upmarket shops and restaurants in Centro, or a few blocks in the other direction for street eats which I frequent every night. The little bar is awesome for a few beers and night and there are also computers free for guests to... More

Making translations, writing flyers and numerous phone calls were no problem for the staff. Its a very safe hostel which a lot... More

A friend and I stayed in an 8 people dorm for 5 nights. We booked it because it was the cheapest place we could find on the Net, but when we arrived, we were astonished and loved the place since the very first moment: the super-central location is fantastic, the staff are nice and helpful, always trying to make you...
