    Staff were friendly, but nothing to really rave about. Many gap year types here, and the first floor gets a little loud at night (they gave us earbuds, which was nice), but its all good to mingle I suppose. We got a private room but could still hear the people chatting in the next dorm type room. No wi-fi in room, but computers for use, and also wifi in the common areas.

    There was clean towels but no water, and the hot water needed a while to set in. So these were definitely minus points. It is definitely in a good location not far from the Zocalo and the metro station. And nice selection in of tours to go on too!

    But, would be nice if it were slightly less pricey. Its not expensive, but i thought it was not a terrific value for money.

    pros: the room was very big, clean and nicely decorated. the staff was friendly. the location is excellent.
    cons: lots of early 20s partying in the hostel, no drinking water (have to buy it), noisy, unclean bathrooms.
    we changed to a different hotel and it was a 1000 times better for a fraction more pesos.

    Hostel Amigo was brilliant for us.

    We arrived in Mexico City with absolutely no idea of where to stay or what to do other than a determination to go to see Frida Kahlo’s home and studio. Being and artist myself I have for years been totally fascinated by Frida’s life story and paintings. I love her courage!!

    We stumbled upon Hostel Amigo on the internet and thank goodness we did.

    They were welcoming, friendly, helpful and great fun. They even sent a car to collect us, from the hotel we had landed up in because we didn’t get out of the airport until 2am on arrival!! The prices were very reasonable, the place was clean, and most of all through their great tours we got to experience a wonderful array of what Mexico City, and it’s surrounds has to offer. Not being ones for taking tours, we were more than pleasantly surprised to find that their tours were much more like heading out for a great day with a few friends. And talking of friends we met some wonderful people from all over the world, while we were there.

    Our experience of visiting Frida’s home and studio was incredible, definitely worth the visit to Mexico for me, and our day trip to the pyramids was brilliant, including the great tequila tasting experience we were given as part of the tour. Even though it was a rainy day that did not spoil the sense of awe at the size, history, age and culture of this extraordinary city.

    Do take the opportunity to hang out at Hostel Amigo. It is in the centre of so much and so you can walk most places or take their ridiculously cheap metro to outlying areas. We really enjoyed yourselves there with them, and noticed that many of the others staying there at that time extended their stays just because they were so enjoying hanging out with these fun people.

    Room Tip: Head higher if noise bothers you as bar can have people having a great time celebrating at night sometimes. Easy solution

    The location is great, easy to access the metro and walking distance to the consititution plaza, independence palace, etc. Staffs are very nice and helpful. Especially the day tour, most of the them are free(only tips for the guide). They have a free wifi, but only accessible on the 1st and 2nd floor. Free airport pick up if you stay 3 consecutive nite.

    I and my two friends stayed at the Hostel Amigo for quick two day trip to Mexico City. The location was incredible. Having such a short amount of time, it was imperative that we be near as many attractions as possible. Being a short walk from multiple markets, the Bellas Artes Museum, the Palacio Nacional, some famous cathedrals and many many other attractions; this hostel fit the bill. It is larger than some we have stayed at, but the staff is helpful and friendly. Only the private rooms have windows which is one downside, but as long as you aren't hanging out in your room all day (why would you) the jail-cell feel can be overlooked. Location is definitely the best asset.
