Centro Histórico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.

We stayed 2 nights at Hostel Mundo. It's located directly in the Historic Centre of Mexico City. The staff were very helpful and organised a really good tour for us to Teotihuacan with their partnered tour operator (Tekpan Tours - highly recommend). The hostel is withing walking distance to loads of cool sights within the city and the area felt safe at night. The hop-on/hop-off bus tour stand is located directly outside the hostel. We had a private room which was very small and clean - exactly what we paid for. We used a shared bathroom - the toilet was very clean but the shared shower definitely could have been better maintained throughout the day. There is a beautiful view of the Cathedral from the rooftop bar and from the kitchen and the cocktails were very good! Very good value - would highly recommend.

My sister and I stayed here for a total of 5 days and we loved every day we stayed. The staff were so kind and helpful and definitely friendly. The restaurant was great and Juan that works there was by far the nicest person we met during our whole time in Mexico. The bartender Daniel was also super kind to us and went out of his way to make drinks that we would like, without us even having to ask. The rooms were clean, showers had nice hot water and even with the noise of the roof top we were able to sleep, the front desk even gave us free ear plugs! Everyone went out of their way to point us in the direction of taxis and transportation that would not rip us off. All in all we had a great stay and will be coming back in the future. Gracias por todo!

Well this isn’t the worst hostel we have stayed, that honour belongs to one in Copacabana, but Mundo Joven came pretty close. We stayed in a private ‘cupboard’ which had only a fan and a window that opened up into an internal space which I shall call the ‘funnel’. The room was stinking hot and we had two noisy options, keep the fan or open the window to the funnel. Both resulted in no sleep due to the excessive noise in the funnel from the doof doof noise in the upstairs bar/niteclub which was really only open to paying visitors and was open every night over our six day stay. If the heat didn’t stop you from sleeping, then the noise did. There were only two toilets on the floor which were emptied (bins) every day except for one, but given the heat and being in a country where you can’t flush your s*%tty paper, completely unacceptable. They advertise wifi and free internet but the wifi was patchy in the rooms and staff stated that it only worked in the foyer... where it was only slightly more reliable.... but the hostel did offer internet on desktop dialup.... surprise, the 90s rang and asked for their modem back... COMPLETE JOKE! Breakfast was disappointing with long waits due to the amount of people. We attempted to leave the hotel but staff refused to refund stating it was their managers policy who we attempted to contact via WhatsApp for several days before giving up. The only thing this s*%t hole has going for it is the location... but so do several other hostels which we would recommend first. I’d rather punch myself in the nuts than stay here again.

Stayed for four nights last week. Location was great,right behind of the Metropolitan cathedral,and lots of cheap places to eat.Historical ruins of Templo Mayor is just a minute walk. Staffs were nice.beds are old,especially the pillows.we were staying in a four beds dorm on second floor.we had to share the bathroom with another four beds dorm next door.they got warm water there in the shower,but at night time, to get the warm water,you need to run the water so many times to get it warm.cuz the shower is funny,every one minute it stops,and you need to push the shower button again between the valves.you do that when the water stop running when showering.towel is upon request,and there is a 50 pesos deposit.which is okay.sheets are very old and thin.they give them to you when check in.they don’t clean the bathroom,only removed the garbage.and there’s no bath mat in the bathroom stall,so it gets wet every time someone finishes with the shower.There’s a rooftop bar,so be ready with earplugs.and they have a kitchen on 5th floor,with a nice balcony overlooking the cathedral.

Hostel Mundo Joven Catedral is the perfect place to stay in an extremely central part of Mexico City. Near many cultural attractions. It has a train stop within walking distance. There is food and drink all around. The turn of every corner has something new. If you just want to chill Mundo Joven is excellent for that too. Lots of places inside to relax. There is actually a restaurant inside. The food is affordable and delicious. Upstairs on the roof; the bar opens at night. From there you can sample mescal and see the city light up and gorgeous.
