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

Positives: good location, cool roof top bar, clean, secure........... 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

Me and two girl friends stayed here for 4 nights. It is a great location right on the zocalo. It is close to the metro and many restaurants. We especially enjoyed the view from the rooftop bar during our stay. The 4 person dorm we stayed in was very very small and the wifi was terrible. Apart from this we... 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

This hostel is set out like a prison - all rooms are overlooking each other above the downstairs bar so zero privacy here. There are no windows just shutters and dull lighting which makes this place so depressing. It is EXTREMELY noisy from early morning til well into the small hours - a combination of the bar downstairs and the... More
