I had booked for a private room since the pricing was reasonable. I must say the hostel is very clean and so are the rooms. My room was very spacious and the bed was super comfortable. The hostel location is right at the centre of all attractions. The hostel also provides sightseeing tours for a reasonable price. Totally recommended hostel,... More

It's well located very clean and security also seems fine. Take note there is no elevator and the stairs take some climbing especially at the higher altitude. The toilets are separate male / female on alternate floors. Try to get a room on the right floor. Downside was the noise. 03.00 in the morning shouting and laughing. 09.00 in the... More

We only stayed for one night in a double room shared bathroom. The building is quite interesting inside, high ceilings and wooden beams etc. It's clean, the bathrooms have hot showers, and the reception staff are very friendly and can speak English if you need it. Breakfast is fairly limited but free! It's a great location close to the metro... More

I was here in late July with my friends. The first negative thing was not to be in the same room, even though we had booked all of the beds in a single solution. We asked to be in the same room for the next two days and, although we were told that there were no problems of any kind,... More

I stayed in the 6bed mix room. It felt very crowded. other hostels I have stayed at, provide more space within the room. Each person gets their own locker, just no lock. (always travel with at least two mini locks) They provide free, and delicious, breakfast. Templo Mayor is literally around the block. Great place to stay in

On our first stay to Mexico City hostel - we were initially disappointed. It's a beautiful hostel, offers all the facilities you would need and has such a fantastic central location.

The hostel was definitely not filled to capacity when I stayed here. I was in a private double room so I cannot speak to the dorms but the room had lots of extra space for us and giant beds (two twins pushed together for each person). The bathrooms additionally had 6 showers and 4 toilets so there were no waits... More

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
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.
