I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed everything while I was there. I was supposed to share a room with 8 more people but I had it all to myself - no one else stayed there, probably because it wasn't high season. If you want to go to la Condesa, you just have to walk a few blocks to... More

Housekeeping staff keeps rooms and bathrooms spotless. 4. Individual small reading light and an outlet at the head of each bed. 5. Individual wifi router for each room. Neutral: 1. It's a... More

This hostel is nice enough. Everything is very clean and well-kept but the ambiance just isn't there. I was there in mid-march and the hostel was an absolute ghost town. I went to another hostel 2 days later and it was much more active. No one was here aside from an Australian student I met who confirmed that before I... More

La Buena vida! This is a chill hostel located in Condesa. The Patriotismo subway stop is just a nice 5 minute walk away, and at night there are plenty of cool restaurants and bars nearby. This isn't a party hostel, but there are still opportunity's to make friends. I met some really great people there! Also the staff are extremely... More

I stayed at Hostal La Buena Vida for a couple of nights during easter 2013 at the end of my trip to Mexico. The hostel was nice in itself. The entire building is very artsy and fancy. Also, it is cleaned every day leaving it absolutely spotless. Adding to it, I felt very safe in the hostel. However, the hostel... More

I would recommend this one highly for the following reasons: First the location is the best, the neighbourhood of La Condesa is the place to be in terms of food, ambiance, nightlife and you have a very close access to the metro in order to move within the city. The hostel is sparkling clean, the cleaning service is at the... More

Highly recommended - very friendly people, clean, comfortable, safe, and price isn't bad (~ $USD 20-24/night). There are mixed and female-only dorms. It was nearly empty when I was there in June 2012, probably because it's still nearly new, a little more expensive than older hostels, and Condesa isn't where most tourists flock towards (but is my favorite Mexico City...

On top floor there are computers to use and where you fix your breakfast. Good location and within walking ditance of... More
