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 issue was - it wasn't very social and at times we found the staff to be quite rude. We stayed in the in an 8 bed dorm for... More

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

I really enjoyed the overall central feeling location of this hostel. It was 2 blocks from public transit and a block from their government center. With in a 10 minute walk you could find all of the shopping that you wanted, stores, bars, etc. The hostel itself was clean, no complaints about safety or cleanness. There is a small community...

This hostel has been beautifully renovated. The art work, the colors, the architectural details are fantastic. So, don't let the inconspicuous entrance fool you: glass double doors at street level that bring you to an iron electric gate that's managed from the reception upstairs. You ring the door bell and someone buzzes you in after checking their security camera. My... More

Very nice rooms, somewhat of an interesting view if you have a balcony. Towels are not change often so you´ll have to ask for them at the lobby. Overall is a nice hostel, very clean with a nice staff and nice high ceilings.

I was in an 8 bed dorm and it was unbelievably hot all the time making it difficult to sleep. I understand Mexico is hot, but at night it cooled down but this room had no ventilation and one fan on the roof so didn't get any fresh air. It was more bearable leaving the door open at night, but... More

Breakfast is included that consisted of something hot (scrambled eggs one morning), yogurt, granola, toast and a fruit. Lights out at midnight.

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.
