Good solid hostel, nice central courtyard where it's easy to meet people. Internet was pretty good, rooms were spacious enough, and the location was perfect, only a few blocks from the zocalo. The roof terrace is a bonus for anyone who wants to continue the party after 11pm, as it was far enough away from the rooms that noise was... More

Great hostel with a lovely courtyard and places to chill out. Staff were helpful & happy to offer advice / make reservations etc. Breakfast of coffee, fruit and toast included too. We had a large simple double room with a private bathroom with hot water.
