5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

C'est très jolie et le garçon est très sympa !!! C'est un lieu pour tout la famille! Definitely it's very comfortable and nice... People it's very kind and in my personal opinion I made new friends there, u can use the kitchen and all the time it's very clean and the restrooms are very clean also the rooms... U can see a lot of people and from different places.
I spend a great time there I'm planning to come back! U have to go to the hostal ! What r u waiting for?...

OK, let me preface this by saying that this is only the 2nd hostel I have ever stayed in, so take this review with a grain of salt!

I stayed for a total of 4 nights while the damage to my motorcycle was being assessed by my Mexican Insurance Company from a wreck the day before.

Hostal Victoria is located in the Zona Rosa District of Mexico City, which is a perfect area for anyone traveling through the City. You're within a short walk from any of the following, great restaurants, bars, affluent shopping mall, Zoo, Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of National History, and the Angel of Independence, and if you can't get the Starbucks monkey off your back, there are 7 within striking distance, 3 are lass than a 5 minute walk from the hostel. Also, let me note that the Zoo and Museums are FREE.

Finding Hostal Victoria.....it was tricky, even for my seasoned taxi driver. It is one block south of Reforma, on Varsovious, tucked away in a dead end alley secured by a large green security gate!

At $400 pesos / night for a private room and a shared bath I thought it was fairly pricey, but hey, I had two porn channels, a variety of Mexican channels, and re-runs of CSI-Miami on the 13 inch TV. The room itself was spartan to say the least the beds were clad in stained, albeit washed sheets, and nasty carpet! Oh, did I mention the pillows...think of wet cardboard, mashed up, and thrown into a Dora the Explorer pillow case, but at least I had two to choose from!

There was no shared kitchen, only a small refrigerator off of the office, There was no dining area were everyone could congregate...that I found at least. The bathroom was alright but the agua caliente was more like agua luke-warm!

The overall vibe of the place....I didn't find any! No one went out of their way to say hello, but then again, neither did I. I was the only english speaker (only speak a little spanish) that I heard. Each of the each mornings I went out there seemed to be a group of people (not hostel guests), maybe a church group or similar that wold meet in the lobby for several hours, I'm not sure of the purpose of this, but it has no bearing on my review.

All in all, the location is wonderful, but if you're looking to interaction with others you may want to look elsewhere, and if quality sleep is of any importance, remember, bring your own pillow!

Room Tip: Ask to see it before you buy it!!!

My partner and I stayed here in a private room for one night - we were supposed to stay two nights but we cancelled the second one. The hostel is very dirty - our room didn't look like it had been properly cleaned after the last use, the kitchen wasn't very clean but the bathroom in particular was disgusting - and one of the two bathrooms was out of use, so from what I could gather all guests were using the same one. Other guests were noisy including late at night and the hostel staff did not seem to be particularly engaged with ensuring respectful behaviour. Also guests were smoking inside in the communal areas. For the same money there are many better places to stay in Mexico City including another hostel very nearby.

Room Tip: Apparently they have another building nearby to the main one, perhaps it is cleaner there!
