I visited this hostal a second time in 7 months after I was intrigued by CDMX as revisited it. I stayed in the 4 bed room. The room was spacious for 4 people, although I only had company for 2/5 nights of my stay and even on the 2 nights with people, I had a room to myself, as the... More

This hostel is situated in the old town in a very beautiful old building with nice features! The staff was great, very friendly and the guests calm and down to earth. I liked it a lot because it was not noisy at all and had great value for money. I stayed in a single room and it was fresh and... More

Excellent Hostal. Simple but clean spacious rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and only a couple of minutes from the zocalo. Great bread for breakfast (plus cereals, bananas - have as much as you want), and a nice little courtyard to relax in. Have returned while passing through Mexico City for the night.

This place is larger than you'd expect from the street view. There are several rooms of various sizes, some with bath, some shared bath, some dorm style. It all depends upon what you're looking for and the price-point you'd like to stay within. My wife and I got a room with bathroom included, and it was great. It was more... More

Stayed two nights in this hotel, overall good hotel, very tranquil location considering it’s only a few mins walk to the hussle and bussle of the surrounding area. Staff friendly and willing to help. Reviews said it was very clean and it certainly lived to this expectation. Rooms were bare but very adequate though the sound insulation meant that noise... More

Nice quiet place to meet great travellers. Located nearby Zocalo, it was a great place to start your Mexico City travel. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. One staff walked me to the taxi in the middle of the night, just to make sure. Breakfast was decent and room was spacious and comfortable. Wifi in the common room - which... More

From the arrival to the departure, we felt take care of. Great, nice hosts, good and clean rooms, though rustic rooms. Everything is there. So close and yet not too noisy! Only comment would be that we would have been happy for one more table outside and a second type of breakfast, bun. But -- seriously? Things were just right... More
