Top location walking 1 minute to centro historico. The hostel is very clean and cheap, compared to its location. Had a small private Room with shared bathroom in the main building. Basic breakfast and wifi is included. Front desk was nice and helpfull. Easy to get in contact with other People from the hostel. Give it a try.

We stayed at the hostel suites across the road and were very happy with our choice. Exceptionally clean, bed comfy, and most important - QUIET at night. I dislike loud music when trying to sleep. The included breakfast was a bit lame but there was always something edible. Friendly staff.

Stayed here twice. Very close to Cinco de Mayo street and so much food nearby. Clean hostel and friendly service. I like the living room area! I got the room facing the street which was quite noisy and smelly.

The facility was attractive and very well located in Centro near the Zocalo. Tours were easily arranged, with pickup at the hostel. The staff was fabulous and very helpful. One problem: the quoted cab fare of 187p from the airport was actually 340p. It was very easy to take the Metrobus back to the airport when I left...only 30p and... More

I stayed in the dorm section between Christmas and New Years, and this was the best of the four hostels that I experienced in Mexico. The staff were nice and helpful. The hot breakfast was hearty and tasty. Clientele was friendly. I have only 3 suggested improvements: It would be very helpful if they had some of the free maps... More

I stayed for six nights there. First, the location is great. It's very close from Zocalo Metro Station and walking street. The hostel is very easy to find and it's a nice place to walk around the centro. It's quiet at night too. Second, bed and bathroom are wonderful. Matress is clean and comfortable. The hostel gives new sheets when... More

I stayed here 5days in a private room across the road at number 11 (the suites hostel). It was great value for money with spotless lovely renovated rooms, hard mattresses, nice towels and sheets and hot powerful showers. The inclusive breakfast was good and different everyday however the food wasn't warm but there is a microwave to heat it up.... More

I would recommend staying here. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hostel is spotlessly clean. We stayed in the suites (which I think is number 11, almost directly across the road from the other part of the hostel) and had a private room with shared bathroom facilities. Basically, everything was great other than the hallway lights stayed... More

Of course, a hostel is not meant to be perfect. I stayed for 2 days in late December. The desk staff was efficient. My private room was clean and comfortable. Although it had a window, it was stuffy due to poor air flow. There was a fan on a floor stand so when I wanted to keep my door open... 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.
