We highly recommend the Mexico City Hostel Suites (#11 Brasil). We had a room with an ensuite bathroom and two double beds. It was a very comfortable place to call home for six nights. The central location made it easy to access many of the historic sites by walking. The breakfast served each day had variety and was very good.... More

This hotel is literally located just across the street from the famous Zócalo. You will be perfectly fine walking to most sighseeing destinations. Premises are probably not the cleanest you will find, but should not bring any major issues. Note that people do smoke just outside the porch and it does filter into the common area (not sure if it... More

This hostel is right next to the Cathedral (not even one block away), pretty much the best location you could expect in DF. Very clean and the breakfest is good and free. Just be mindful that there are some very spicy nachos every couple of days, but you are in Mexico after all, so there is no better way to... More

I had a better experience at this hostel's across-the-street partner, Mexico City Hostel Suites, which still has dorms but is a bit newer. Mexico City Hostel was fine for a night, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer than that. Facilities are shabbier, not unkempt, but not super-well maintained. Dorms are big and a bit loud. Not a great... More

Like the headline is saying the hostel is located perfectly. The room was absolutely clean and the bathrooms as well. The included breakfast was alright. Wifi was not working properly. One thing to mention is that this hostel is bad for meeting people. There's no real common areA except for 2 sofas at the TV floor.

As others have pointed out, the location steps from the Zócalo is perfect for anyone interested in Mexican history. It's also well served by two metro stations within a few minutes walk. The staff speak good English, and the place is as clean as a whistle top to bottom, something much appreciated in budget travel. My private room with its... More

For the price, which is about US$19/night for the big dorm, I didn't think it was worth the money. Yes, it was clean, secure, and had Internet, but that is kind of standard for most youth hostels, especially in cities. The staff was helpful, and breakfast was included, but, it was mediocre at best. In the future I would definitely... More

The hostel is located minutes away from Zocalo. A very convenient location, surrounded by restaurants and shops. The hostel is secured with locked door and camera, which made us feel safe. The staff was friendly and gave us good suggestions on where to go and eat. The interior of hostel was trendy and clean. There were computer and a TV... More

We stayed in a double room with ensuite. This hostel is centrally located with very clean & spacious rooms. The staff sepak excellent English & are helpful. The buffet breakfast is plentiful & nutritious with yoghurt, fresh fruit, eggs, toast, tea & coffee. We didn't encounter any street noise issues.
