“Trippy, cozy and cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

Hearing that there was a hotel with rooms inside construction tubes meant I had to find some way to experience this -- what a cool concept! Happily, the concept delivers on what the idea promises; a step up from a hostel, but not quite a hotel, the Tubohotel offers a degree of privacy in the extremely cozy beds (I slept like a baby) inside retrofitted construction tubes. The view of the hills, location and cleanliness make this a great recommendation for the adventure traveler as well budget groups. With the strong locks on the doors and the 24 hr guards at the gate, I felt safe and secure in my tube and on the property. Bonus: The high-speed wifi was fantastic and the staff suggested I grab a breakfast of freshly squeezed OJ and queso quesadillas around the corner -- mmmm!

Room Tip: Try to choose a tube off the ground -- great views!

Upon reading other tripadvisor reviews I decided to stay at the Tubohotel this past weekend. I was able to make a reservation online with a quick and friendly response. All rooms are 500 pesos, all year round. The hotel is about a mile from the center of the city, close to the highway off ramp. Their website has detailed instructions on how to get there and it is across the highway from the gas station which serves as the local bus terminal. The staff was very friendly and provided answers to questions about how to get around town.

While a bit removed from the centro, it provides a quiet, tranquil location. The tubo-rooms are small, but comfortable. It stayed warm during the cold evening, and it felt as though the world and all the troubles in it remained outside. Unfortunately, the bathrooms also remain outside...separate male and female bathrooms and showers are just a short walk away from the tubes. They provide towels, but bring your own shampoo and soap because none were available. The bathrooms were very clean and they have hot water.

Overall, the tubohotel was a great place for a weekend escape from the crazy city that is DF.

It is a great option for an adventure weekend. My wife and I spent two nights and got the chance to walk around this magical town. The hotel is very clean; basic but comfortable. The concept is very innovative and can be considered one of the most original "hostels" I´ve ever been. Great prices, good location, friendly personnel.
