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.

The accomodations are basic, but the staff is very friendly and able to help. I've read some reviews about the bad wifi, but I can tell that it was working perfectly the days I stayed there. My favourite spot was the terrace, the guests gathered there everyday to chat and drink in a very relaxed mood. I totally recommend this hostal either for short or long staying.

I went there for 3 night before changing hostel. Good points are : the location right in thé historical center, very friendly staff, you can buy beer at the front desk. Bad points are : the wifi is complet trash, it's really noisy in the street in front of the hostel, bathroom not that clean. It's an ok place for a short stay but if you plan to stay a long time you can find better.

Easy hostel for transit. The reception lady was amazingly helpful!! I would only stay there for a short stay, in and out.... not for a long period of time. A bit basic with not much charm. But for the price really no complaints! Gracias!

I initially wanted to stay for four nights in the dorm room but immediately checked out after a single night. I checked in the afternoon and went out and came in the night by the time I came there was no water in the toilets to take a shower. When asked about the same to the hostel staff they said since two days they have water problem. (Why would they want to check me in if they had no water they could have told this before I checked in), and the wifi just just would not work anywhere in the hostel and when asked about this the hostel staff simply said "ya wifi is down" I understand sometimes wifi may be down but the way they answered was rude and were not willing to do anything about it. There are many good options right next door to this hostel for the same price.
