This is a strange and poorly managed hostel, and overall, I would NOT recommend it. It is in a sketchy part of town, and while it's across from the Police Museum, the streets surrounding it did not feel safe. It is located in a mostly industrial/commercial district with lots of electric and plumbing supply stores, so it feels desolate and... More

I wasn't wowed by the hostel. The location was ok, the rooms were ok the service was ok. Everything was just ok. Things to note: The outdoor area upstairs is a really nice place to spend time. The bathrooms are pretty grotty, there aren't many of them and for 4/5 days of my trip there was no hand soap in... More

Cons: - a bit tricky to find, only a few blocks from the metro. Look high in the wall for a small sign of their logo. - we stayed in the private double (pink room). It's a small room, with a double bed, and a small bedside table - only one power point, which is hanging out of the wall... More

We met a lot of other travellers here - there are a few common areas including a rooftop terrace. The wifi was great as well, probably one of the fastest we have encountered so far. Alex was great as well, gave us lots of tips on what to see. Good location.

Overall we loved this hostel. The atmosphere was cool, the other guests were great, and the location was fantastic. And the roof top terrace was beautiful. It felt very safe, the wifi (mostly) worked great, and the staff was friendly. Having said that, there were a few negatives. As everyone else has said, the stairs were pretty daunting, especially at... More

We were so excited to stay here but were so disappointed. Firstly when we arrived there was no one to check us in so we just kind of did it ourselves. An hour later someone came and didn't really know what was going on. We wanted to extend for a few more nights so she told us we had to... More

It was definitely big enough for my needs. And nice to be upstairs. I Location: Just a few blocks from the Juraz... More

My boyfriend and I have been in this hostel at the beginning of October. We stayed about 6 nights and we had a great time here. The owner of the hostel, Alex, is very friendly, sociable, and made us feel very comfortable, and so were the other staff members. During our stay we spent a weekend in Guanajuato and we... More

I believe things have changed since then, We were there last month, breakfast is offered for everyone, free mineral water is also available. However, there's a lot of stairs still :p but the security guard told me that they are working on the new elevator Very helpful stuff! special thanks to Dolce

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
