I stayed here for five nights and found it a lovely place to stay. Everyone, staff and guests alike, were very friendly and the location is amazing! Very close to the metro and you have breakfast with the beautiful cathedral each morning. In the dorms you have a light switch and two power points at your bed which is very... More

The location of the hostel is really great and you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Zocalo on the top floor during breakfast. Unfortunately, the comfort of the hostel is minimal: the rooms are small and very noisy since you can hear everyone in the hostel speak as well as the (repetitive) music in the hall. The rooms are...

Great location but verry noisy: you can listen to the conversations at the 1st floor even from the 4th, and the ones form the corridors and the ones from the roof... The pipes that run into the rooms let you know exactly when your neighbors use the toilet. The breakfast show some diversity but is , most of the time,... More

You can't beat the location and the friendly staff that this hostel provides. It is very secure and you never feel unsafe. Great rooftop bar where you can meet other travelers and great daily tours that always end with tequila shots and beer. Definitely go on one of the tours or check out one of the events happening at the... More

Negatives: (in our private room) very loud due to no actual windows just shutters that open into the central courtyard/bar which is generally full of people making it very noisy , The "cool industrial look" with all the pipes running through the place although looks funky they are working pipes so...

Clean, comfortable and great location right next to Zocalo Plaza. Friendly staff. Breakfast is pretty good (it's free. and includes eggs, toast, beans, etc.). The rooftop bar is a bit of a gong show (at least when I was there) and the place can be noisy (mostly unavoidable, as the room's window's are on the interior and look down on... More

There is no other choice for hostels in Mexico City, most others will leave you disappointed in one way or another, for example, Hostal Amigo had no windows so it was extremely hot and the staff are unsociable. Hostal 333 had spiders was filthy and had a racist manager, Hostal Regina was okay but lacked a breakfast deal, Hostal Mexico... More
