As a middle aged woman of some means traveling with 2 very young adults, I selected this hostel as our accommodation for my son's 21st birthday trip because from the reviews, I thought my companions would enjoy the international clientele, chill atmosphere, rooftop bar, and location near Metro and bus stops. I was actually prepared to move on to "grander"... More

I was in the hostel twice: the first time in a shared dorm and the second one in a private double room. Both the rooms were clean, but honestly I preferred the shared one, because the private room was really small and two people can barely move in there at the same time. In both the showers there was a... More

Lets start with what is good. The security and breakfast are above average. The location is exellent. I felt very safe here and the breakfast had a wide variety for a free breakfast. Everything else was mediocre at best. Ive stayed at over 50 hostels and never written a negative review. This hostel was not bad, but by far the... More

Stayed here with my sister who had never stayed in a hostel before while I stay in them often. She was very nervous so I knew the hostel had to be fun, clean and cheap. This place was all that and more. My aunt who is from the city dropped us off and came in so she too could check... More

On arrival, the staff were very friendly, helpful and informative about the different attractions to see during our stay with them. The rooms were very reasonably priced and clean. All the staff are so welcoming and always greet you with a smile. In particular the "hostel guy" George made our stay one to remember. Taking time out of his evening... More

Clean,central,good terrace bar for meeting other travellers,friendly staff and close to public transport.good value for money. The wifi isn't great but there are computers that have a fast connection and there is so much to do in Mexico City that if you're spending time in the Internet you're doing it wrong!
