We've been there for 5 nights, in a double private room on the 5th floor. The bedroom is comfortable and has 2 large lockers. There's also a sink and TV on the room. The WiFi only works on the lobby and even there is quite weak. Also, the noise is bearly unsustainable on the weekends, but they offer you ear... More

This hostel has so much potential. Great location, great rooftop bar. However the dorm we were in was a little cluttered. The wifi was awful and i am sure they get a lot of bad reviews about it. This wouldn't change my decision to stay but does make it difficult when planning and contacting people as they only have 3... More

Hey! Thanks for your comment. It's nice to hear that the wifi wouldn't deter you :) But as you say, wifi is a problem but every building in the centre has the same problem. A new provider will come in a couple of months. Can't wait! Come back soon More

Great location! Just a few steps from major national landmarks and near to the metro if you want to explore other neighborhoods. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lively social environment for making new travel friends. The free rooftop breakfast is also such a lovely perk to staying here.

Lovely hostel to stay in. Very central to everything. Breakfast was good but the wifi was a bit slow. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. The rooftop bar is great at night time with a lovely view of the city. Would recommend to a friend.

Wow! What a breakfast! Scrambled eggs, pancakes, cereal yogurt, toast, fruit, view. It's got it all! Great location and vibe too at a reasonable price. Staff were helpful, rooms were clean probably only downside is the kitchen which is a little on the small side for a hostel of this size.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in May. It is situated on the Zocalo, so it has a great location for sightseeing. The staff at the reception is welcoming and nice. On the first floor there is a restaurant (never went there, though), and the hostel has a rooftop bar with a view over the Zocalo. We had... More

I stayed here for 5 nights. Overall I thought the hostel was great. I arrived at 6am in the morning, they unlocked the tv room for me to sleep in and also offered to take me to the kitchen to get some free coffee. Breakfast is really good. The roof top bar is awesome as well, great way to meet... More

This has to be one of the best hostels I've visited. Amazing roof terrace and bar with fun and friendly service from Angelo. Breakfast of eggs, pancakes, fruit, toast, tea and coffee included.

Stayed here for 6 nights before a flight. Great location and rooftop bar. Wifi was ridiculous. They can't say they have wifi if it doesn't work but simply exists. Staff seemed indifferent to issues such as wifi, dryer not working and that the swipe cards stop working pretty much once a day. No tv room to relax. Only social place... More
