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!

Didnt spend very long in the hostel at all but it was quiet and more importantly for me the recpetion sold the cheapest beer i found in any hostel in the city! Amazing location right next to... More

There are two locations, Brasil No 8 and Brasil No 11. They are both located on the same street, just opposite each other. Both are behind the cathedral/zocalo. It is an Excellent location as literally right around the corner you will face the cathedral. If you want location, location, location, there is no better place to stay than zocalo. Lots... More

I had booked a bed in a 8-bed-dormitory but since it was during the week, we were only two people in there. The whole hostel was really really clean. The breakfast was ok, the staff most of the time really nice.

Lovely old building, which does mean it has old building acoustics, and was a bit loud at night with people coming in from nights out. still, we... More
