Stayed here in August 2014 for 3 nights. Didn't have a reservation and asked if I could see a room before committing but was told that would be possible due to security reasons. Asked if someone could accompany me and was told no as they were all busy, with three people behind the counter, one of which was answering my... More

The location of this hostel couldn't be better. It's right in the city centre and very near a lot of the major sights. It's also close to the Zócalo metro stop. Positives: -The whole place is absolutely spotless and the rooms are a good size (we stayed here twice in the space of two weeks so were in two different... More

In a great area, nestled amongst the old Cathedrals and bustling shops Mexico City Hostel boasts an array of tours available, at a reasonable price through their own reliable sister companies. The staff spoke both English and Spanish and were very helpful. Facilities were in great order, bathrooms and dorms had a oasis feel about them and were clean throughout.... More

This hostel is well located in the downtown of Mexico City, next to the subway station (Zocalo), to the Metropolitan Cathedral, Templo Mayor Museum and also to the Mundo Joven Hostel, where you can meet new travalers. If you want you can also watch a Lucha libre show, the biggest arena is only 5min walking from the hostel. The rooms... More

Staff were friendly, breakfast was nice, rooms were amazing, clean and had terraces and very comfy beds. It gets a little loud next to the road, but nothing too bad. The location is brilliant, very safe and very close to everything a tourist would want to see. There are cleaners constantly making sure everything is spotless and the showers are... More

Good: Location Workers are really nice Hot and clean showers Clean sheets and towels Comfortable bed in dorms (although you can't sit in the lower bed, and I banged my head more then once ) Not so good: If you want to meet people it's not recommended. The hostel is not designed for that. There is no common place where... More

Both locations were convenient (#8 is older and #11 is more modern). The staff at #8 was outstanding! They offer so much information about the city, schedules, transportation...etc. Breakfast was delicious and offered a great variety of things. The internet service worked all the time, but sometimes I had to get closer to the router/modem. We were completely full, but... More

Breakfast is good - usually eggs, toast, coffee, juice, yogurt, and fruit. Negative: 1. Eight person dorm can get a bit smelly due to lack of an... More

The first thing I noticed about this hostel, which was a very welcome change after some less-than-hygienic places I had stayed at recently, was how clean this hostel was. It does its job well: beds are comfortable, breakfast is decent, it's in a nice old building which has been done up well, and it's good value for money, especially for... More

A very good hostel! The location couldn`t be better, only a few meters away from the Zocalo. Staff, including the watchman, are very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and toilets are very clean. Good breakfasts and good coffee!
