I don't understand all the extremely high marks. Yes, they are very close to Zocalo so it makes walking around to view the sites really nice, but for that convenience you give up other things. I stayed on the top floor (4th floor walk up) and from there the wifi would not work. I also would have to go down... More

Really nice accommodations in the centre of Mexico City, virtually in the zocalo. The upside of being close to the action, the downside of being loud at night. Our room had two double beds, huge room, balcony, and very clean. Bathrooms spotless. Service friendly- great English speaking reception help with anything. Included breakfast was outstanding. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in... More

Negative aspects: - unfriendly staff! (except nightguard and some day reception guys) tattooed night reception lady was the highlight concerning unfriendliness - no social vibes, no community/hangout area, no hostel activities - Only 2 computers, bad WiFi in the upper floor - Depending on where the room is you may have a longer way to the bathroom, including changing floors...

Pros - Great location! Less than 5-minute walk to the Zocalo, 5-10 minute walk to either the Zocalo or Allende metro station. Cops were everywhere in the area, which made me feel very safe. - Friendly and helpful staff: arranged for my daytrip to Teotihuacan and a taxi to the airport very early in the morning. Seamless! - Room, showers,... More

This review is for the location at 11 Brasil - across the street from the first hostel. The hostel was very clean and very centrally located. I felt safe there and everyone was very relaxed. The breakfast was one of the better hostel breakfasts I've had. The wifi is spotty and the lounge generally carters to people watching tv in... More

Firstly- This review is for the location at 11 Brasil, across the street from the first spot. Boy was I surprised when I got here. I didn't hope for much in such a central location, especially for this price. But this place is nice! Walking the hallways is like stepping through a very high class hotel. They've kept the character... More

We stayed in an 8 bed dorm. No issues whatsoever. Free breakfast in the morning is great. It's a brilliant location, just 2 minutes from the main square. We did the day trip to the pyramids through the hostel and loved it. Stay here!

Stayed in a mixed dorm here- although we booked female only dorms they happened to be mixed dorms! No dramas but this happened on two separate occasions we stayed here. Staff were professional but not that friendly or compassionate so didn't really bother to ask. The common room is ok but did not really seem to attract ppl to hang... More

Nice and clean, 24h hot water, nice common room (although everyone is mostly checking their email/FB instead of talking to the other people in the room). Breakfast is included, usually a variation on scrambled eggs (with or without sauce or meat); with yoghurt, granola, coffee and juice available. The dorm rooms are really noisy: it's impossible to close the door... More

(This is a review about the hostel on the west side of the street - a couple of doors up from a Chinese buffet) The good bits - great location, lovely looking building on the inside, friendly helpful staff most of whom are fluent in English. The Lucha Libre wrestling trip that I booked was apparently cheaper than at the... More
