I stayed two times: the first one alone in a shared room, the second one with my family (5 people) in a GREAT room. Let's make it clear: If you're looking for a youngsters-party-all-night hostel this is not the place (Gratefully) It´s a beautiful restored old house, clean (a lot), quiet, peaceful... and with really nice common areas carefully decorated....

The hostal is walking distance from Zocalo and reasonably priced, which are it's main selling points. The rooms were clean but small, but I didn't spend much time there. It had a locker too, the only downside was - no fan, but it was raining the whole night and I was really tired going to bed, when I was there,... More

To be honest, I didn't know what to expect of Mexico City, or Casa San Ildefonso. After spending four days in Mexico City doing a lot of walking and discovering the city I'd say that this is a great city, and I'm pretty sure you can't get better value for your money than staying at Ildefonso. The rooms are airy... More

Great location for the city, metro and airport. The hostel is so clean and well looked after by friendly and attentive staff. My spanish is embarrassingly limited but staff were so helpful with planning my days, taxis, excursions etc. I stayed in both the private room and the dorm - both were spacious, immaculately clean and safe. I loved staying... More

We booked a 3-person room for a 5-night stay and were very happy with our choice. We briefly considered in staying in one of the more upscale areas of the city with high-end restaurants and bars, but in the end decided that this was a much better choice for our needs and interests...we prefer a local feel to the area...

The hostel was well-located, cheap, and convenient. The hotel staff were very friendly. The only one issue I can find with the hostel is that there were absolutely no electrical outlets near my bed in the room. This is simply unacceptable in today's times where you are likely to want to charge your electrical devices and don't want to leave... More

The hostel is very well located in the historical center of Mexico D.F. There are many rooms and a courtyard for the guests with a nice atmosphere. The Staff ist very helpful and the hostel offers a lot of tours and information about things to do.

Hostal Casa San Ildefonso is a great place to stay. Aside from it being a charming building with several small courtyard gardens, it is centrally located for Mexico City area exploration, which means it is very easy to walk and/or catch the metro subway, or a bus. Also, it is very clean and the staff is extremely helpful. Our one... More

We loved Casa San Ildefonso in Mexico City. We only planned to stay 3 nights and ended up staying 7! The location was great - very close to Zocalo and with a Cantina on the next corner - plus it's on a quiet street yet still in the Historic Quarter. Clean spacious rooms, friendly helpful staff and a fab breakfast.... More

Had a very enjoyable stay at the hostel. The place is very relaxed and just gives a very comfortable feeling. Spacious rooms and super clean (also the bathrooms!!). Close to everything, staff is great!
