“Cheap, clean, fun and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Great location in Centro Mexico City about 5 minutes walk away from Zocalo. A few blocks away from upmarket shops and restaurants in Centro, or a few blocks in the other direction for street eats which I frequent every night. The little bar is awesome for a few beers and night and there are also computers free for guests to use the internet.

The rooms are clean, as are the huge bathrooms. The staff are awesome and really helpful as I don't speak a word of Spanish. There is also a mini travel agency within the hostel where they can arrange tours to nearby attractions like Xochimilco and Teotihuacan, or book bus tickets to your next destination for the same price as buying it yourself at the bus terminal (very handy for me as once again I can't speak Spanish).

I stayed at Hostel Amigo for a week and it was awesome. Cheap, clean and right in the centre of the historical district. I was buying a car while in Mex city and they helped me non stop. Making translations, writing flyers and numerous phone calls were no problem for the staff.
Its a very safe hostel which a lot of ppl like considering mex city is supossed to be quite dangerous.
The Bar guy is a legend and definitly knows how to get the party started with his tequila shots and his group tours. I have been travelling for over a year and this was one of the best hostels so far.
I highly reccomend it ! especially considering the prices of the other hostels.

Room Tip: Private rooms are great and mine had a couch and a bean bag.

A friend and I stayed in an 8 people dorm for 5 nights. We booked it because it was the cheapest place we could find on the Net, but when we arrived, we were astonished and loved the place since the very first moment: the super-central location is fantastic, the staff are nice and helpful, always trying to make you feel at home. The decoration is really lovely (each dorm and private room have their own names and Mexican details related to it), even in the corridors.

There are plenty common places to meet people and the toilets are big and always clean.
There is something to do around the bar all day long: they show a film every afternoon, organise tours, play music until ten at night... The bartender is very friendly and talkative too.

Inside the dorms and in the corridors you have lockers you can use with your own lock. If you have any valuables that are too big for them or you don't own a lock, people at the reception can keep your belongings too.
The breakfast is wonderful, with lots of fruit, many varieties of tea, coffee, milk, different types if cereal and even home made pancakes!

We booked room through booking. com, and through this system it is We have stayed not in a shared room. we had our own separate double bed in a amazing and huge room. it was colored in a beautiful orange color, all the furniture was modern and new. It had sealing fan, which was working perfectly. It also had sofa and a comfortable bean bag chair. everything adapted to young people!

There was breakfest for free every morning from 8 to 10 am, it was milk, cereal, tea, coffee, papaya, watermelon, bananas, pancakes, jam. you can eat as much as you want.

Also there was a kitchen with all the supplies where you can prepare your own food.

The public areas in the hostel are very nice, colorful, with games like biliard. You can use computers, there are big projector for movie nights, hostel is organizing tours.

The bathroom is shared, but very nice, and modern, with separate covered shower cabins (Although there was seen one cockroach).

The lights in the room could be brighter.

Room Tip: Separate rooms are amazing.

I have to say thatI stayed here only one night but that thing that make me angry is that on the website of hostelworld one price for the room was shown, and we came there the price was 200 peso, what was something like a 100 more than we read. The toilet was dirty when we came and it stayed like that till the late morning. Staff was helpful and friendly, but I didn't felt the vibe all the people around the web pages are saying. Average indeed.

This place has that perfect combination.. a great place to stay in an excellent central location.

The young crew working here are very efficient and friendly and lend the place a relaxed and homely atmosphere. The double rooms w/bathroom are huge and very comfortable.

The breakfast is basic but filling, and the wifi reached our room fine (a lot of places advertise wifi but it often works only in the lobby area).

Make sure you book online (we used booking.com) as it works out a lot cheaper.. we extended our stay twice and saved a lot by booking that way instead of just talking to reception, as strange as it seems.

All in all a spacious and very friendly place to stay!

Spent 3 nights here, and we loved it. The location is great, close to a lot of the touristy things. They do free walking tours x3 a week to different places and also paid tours too. They have a travel expert on hand to book buses etc. Bathrooms and our 6 bed dorm were clean. The staff are awesome, especially Herado, he really kept us entertained all day. Met some great people there and would recommend it!!
