Website for Hostel Lit seems very gay suggestive
http://hostellitgdl.com/inicio.htm

But from staying there it is nothing that special. Close to gay areas.
Hostel is part of HI and so accepts all guests.
An average hostel, space good but in someways a bit cramped.
One or two of the staff are gay, but its not the Babylon (Bangkok) of Mexico that the website might lead you to think.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2010

I had reserved a semi-private at Hostel LIt as I had an early flight and wanted a good night's sleep. I was very surprised when shown the room to see it was basically a large sleeping alcove that overlooked a dorm room. You get to it by a small spiral staircase. When I expressed surprise they very quickly told me that since they weren't expecting too many others they wouldn't book put anyone else in the dorm downstairs ( I was paying extra for the semi). This was great as since I was travelling a long distance the next morning I also had more luggage than just a backpack..and couldn't have got it up the staircase.
The staff at Hostel LIt was great and the open seating/eating area is nice and bright and modern. Complimentary breakfast, but unless you have WiFI you have to pay for internet usage. Great location, but it's on a busy transportation corner...it does get quiet though between 11-pm and 6 am. By the way, there are only shared bathrooms...one for men, one for women. This also was not clear on their website.
