Stayed here for three nights. Very safe, the location is across from a police station. No cars in front of the building. There's a security officer in front at all times with many video cameras. I was able to book a tour at the front desk and when I called for a taxi the security guard went outside to stand... More

One of the very few places that the internet pictures don't lie about. Safe, clean, affordable place. Friendly staff. It's in a quiet alley couple blocks away from Zocalo hustle-bustle. Need to walk a block or two to get a cab or other public transportation. Super close to lot of restaurants, ATM, and oh, a police station. Loved this neat... More

The Casa Ildefonso offers a variety of fairly priced rooms and is located in a pedestrian street near the Zocalo area in the historical centre of Mexico city. To have a stressful arrival from the airport, you can book a taxi directly with the hostal -- although this is twice the price of ordering one from the airport when you... More

Simple yet very clean and spacious rooms around lovely, quiet patios. Feels very safe, basic breakfast included, nice staff, good location. Good spot to meet fellow travellers without a noisy party atmosphere. Nothing to complain about, highly recommended.

Staff were fantastic, always willing to help out, and the location is a massive plus. 5 minutes stroll and you're in the Zocalo. The rooms were just pretty tired and needed a decent scrub. Wouldn't really bother with the breakfast as there are plenty of cafes and street-eats in the area.

We stayed 4 nights in Casa San Ildefonso and loved the place. Perfect location close to Zocalo, really clean and spacious rooms and quiet. Breakfast is ok, you can eat outside. Friendly staff, you get a lot of information and a good map.

The place is very beautiful and is kept clean.The staff are bilingual, extremely helpful and care deeply that your stay is a good one. There are a few places to hang out which is a nice change from normal hostels with one common room. There is a dining room, a tv room, a little room with sofas and a central... More

I was a little anxious about visiting Mexico City on my own but Casa San Ildefenso made me feel safe and comfortable as soon as I arrived. All the staff are welcoming and friendly, the rooms and public spaces are beautifully designed and spotless, and it's close to everything in the heart of Mexico City. I spent 5 days in... More

Casa San Ildefonso and its staff ensured that I had an absolutely wonderful time in Mexico City. It was the perfect home away from home for a solo traveller. I was sharing with four others but since the rooms are extremely spacious and clean, plus have their own bathrooms it was a very pleasant experience. I particularly appreciated the excellent...

This August, my girlfriend and I started our journey in Mexico with a 2-night stay in this hostel in a private room. For a couple, this hostel is a suitable option. This place is actually a traditional Mexican house with a beautiful architecture. Rooms are old, but clean and spacious. The staff are super helpful in guiding you around the... More
