Couldn't have imagined a better hostel to stay in Mexico City! Princes are absolutely okay, it includes an all you can eat breakfast buffet (mostly pancakes and eggs) and free coffee all day. It has a very nice terrace from where you can look on the cathedral and the zocalo. It could not be more centrally located! Moreover, it offers... More

I had just flown in from London at the beginning of a 4 month trip. Was really looking forward to meeting people, having a beer and hearing about Mexico. Got exactly that from this place. Great bar upstairs, incredibly friendly staff. Awesome breakfast.

Came here for a few nights and stayed for a few weeks.Great Hostel situated in the middle of the heart of Mexico City. Perfect location to walk around the Zocolo or to get the metro which is a few hundred meters away. Unbelieveable rooftop bar with breathtaking views of the Cathedral and Zocolo, and cheap beer. Love the BBQ nights... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Mundo Joven for 4 nights in November. It is in a great central location, the staff were friendly, and the breakfast was one of the best I've had at a hostel - scrambled eggs, pancakes plus fruit, cereal etc. The view from the top terrace overlooking the city is also great. However, having arrived... More

We stayed 2 nights in a private room with it's own bathroom and shower. The private room is extraordinary tiny and there was always a heat inside. The bathroom was ok and the pressure of the shower overwhelming! The room is located to the inside, that's why we hadn't any problems with the noise from the outside. Only the noise... More

I've joined TripAdvisor especially to thank one of the staff members for his kindness to me last week. Whilst in Mexico DF I fell ill with respiratory problems due to altitude and pollution. One of the security staff at this hostel, Salvador, went out of his way to help me in any way he possibly could. He gladly carried my... More

Great hostel with a super friendly atmosphere and full breakfast. The rooftop bar is fantastic and always a party. It's a great place to make friends and they offer free torus as well as wifi. Mauro and Robbie slayed it as bartenders, definitely ask for Robbie as a tour guide.

We booked through booking.com. When we arrived we had to pay 650 instead of 540 pesos. They said it were extra taxes.. At the end it seemed we just got the queen room instead of the double room. I dont like it when they push you in extra costs.. Luckely they had a good breakfast!

We stayed at this hostel in a private room for 5 nights. First of all, this place has an excellent free breakfast! Loads of choice and a Buffett style so you can have as much as you like. Our room was fine, a little small but great extra amenities including TV, hairdryer, good hot shower, soap, shampoo ect. Would be... More

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
