This is a classic youth hostel - huge & not much atmosphere but lots of tourist information and does the job. Breakfast was fine, nothing super special. Wifi was good but didn't quite reach our room. Hangout areas cool but mostly for watching movies, reading, wifi etc rather than partying. Kitchen fine, big fridge, bathrooms super clean and cleaning ladies... More

Private room, shared bathroom. Basil 8 (apparently there are two) Spacious room with two double beds, for only 2 people. Clean. Breakfasts included. Friendly staff, perfect location in the historic center, nights were a bit chilly. We stayed on the 2nd floor, for the women bathrooms were on the same floor, men's showers and bathrooms were one floor down. Good... More

Located very close to the Zocalo, yet priced very competitively. Also within walking distance of the metro. The rooms were basic and clean. Beds were comfy and the room was cleaned daily. I occupied a shared room & we had our own en-suite bathroom which was also clean. The breakfast was good value for money in that it is included... More

Sure this is a beautiful building with clean facilities but the lack of common areas and the arranging of the common areas that exist makes this a difficult hostel to meet people and find new friends. Breakfast is pretty gross - coffee - couldn't drink it and eggs- couldn't eat them I would choose a different hostel as the location... More

The hostel was nicely decorated and the staff were very helpful. The beds were very comfy. Located in the centro historico, several sights were within walking distance, ( muséo des belles artes, the cathedral, el sécretario de l'éducation where there are several fresques of Diego Rivera).

In light of the fact that I had not stayed in a hostel for 40 years this was a pleasant surprise for me. There was a wide range of ages during my stay. Excellent location near the Zocolo in a neighborhood where I felt relatively safe. The cathedral and metro are only a 5 minute walk. The rooms were clean... More

I stayed at Mexico City Hostel Suites for nine nights in January. (Note that the Hostel is on one side of Brasil Street, and Hostel Suites is on the other side.) The location is excellent: one block from the Cathedral and two blocks from the Metro/subway (Zocalo station). This is where you want to be as a tourist, but it... More

The hostel is situated less than a 5-minute walk from the Zocalo and the metro station; nevertheless it's pretty quiet. The rooms are simple but clean. We had a private room with no private bathroom. It was equipped with a full-size bett, a shelf, a chair, a little desk and a fan. There is a shared kitchen you can use,... More
