I really loved the place, it's an historical big house very well located. And the staff: it's the best ever =) Guillermo

We spend 2 nights at this hostel and we payed 290 pesos/1 night for private room with shared bathroom, breakfast included. It is very good deal, it has excellent location and the building is beautiful. We got room at very bottom floor, with fan. There are two bathrooms at the floor and also little common area with table and chairs.... More

Was a really good spot to be and a beautiful building, but otherwise, was un-impressive...our private room was on the bottom floor without really any windows, but it was clean. we couldn't get hot water and the staff, while very nice, weren't too ready with helpful info when we arrived (i.e. a map, bus info, etc). the wifi worked, the...

This hostel is located on the main square, we stayed in a basic double which was only 290 pasos a night, small room with a fan and comfy bed. Breakfasts are good! Women's showers and toilets are ok, men's not as good (no door on the toilet) worth the money!

Good location but when we got there they tried to charge us for breakfast even though it says it's included, so it doesn't work out good value. Showers were cold, people smoke inside.

Nice hostel in a fantastic location with helpful & pleasant staff. The rooms overlooking the Zocalo have awesome balconies, and a great place to sit in the evenings.

Easily the best breakfast I have had included at a hostel, with loads of fruit, cereals, bread and pancakes on offer!! The staff are friendly, if a little disorganised (missing bookings are not unusual) and the building itself is beautiful (an old colonial mansion on the square), also the location is perfect. Rooms are fine, some smaller than others, those... More

Beautiful old colonial house on the main plaza. If you get a room at the front you have a balcony that overlooks the main square, which is really pretty, and the price is really cheap. Jonathan, one of the managers, and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Like others say, the reason we chose Zocalo was because the breakfast... More

This hostel is within the square of Zocalo itself. It's a beautiful old house that's just magnificent! Spacious loungy areas, good wifi, friendly managers, phone & travel agent service downstairs. The best thing about this place has got to be the huge breakfast that comes with the price! Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

....I arrived 5 AM in this hostel and the lovely man ( I forgot his name I'm afraid, he was also the cook) who received me was very helpful and considerate. I booked for two nights in a dorm room but decided to upgrade to a private room so as not to disturb the other occupants in the room and... More
