Zacatecas is a beautiful city built on hills in the high areas of Mexico.
This hostel is a high building, in a high city with a high roof with high views.
I stayed in January when the road in front of the hostel was being replaced together with pipes, so it should soon, have a nice new road. The hostel is very well presented with water filters (providing free drinking water) in the two kitchens and set on many floors to tone your buttocks. Showers have boiling hot water, but taps seem limited to cold water.
I stayed in a room on the top floor which had an amazing view, although it was a little cold in January but warm enough in bed (the hostel - as most buildings in the area - has no heating as most of the year its warm). The rooms are dated and my sheets required replacing as they had holes in them, towels could have been cleaner too - but don't let this detract from the cheap place with amazing views.
Overall I had an excellent, central, stay in this hostel and would recommend it, I would only recommend bringing a sleeping bag, especially if you are staying in the winter months and a towel.
