Great location. At night it is a fairly dodgy area. In terms of facilities, there is practically no WIFI, no laundry and very basic toilets and showers. The hostel is absolutely massive as well so expect long times waiting for breakfast and use of the other facilities. If you enjoy no sleep, you'll enjoy the terrace roof top bar, which...

I have backpacked through a lot of Asia and Europe, and few places in Latin America. This is the loudest place ever. the rooftop bar is great, but it is the only busy bar in the area (along with Pata Negra). So expect the party to go to 2:30am (esp on the weekends). Fortunately, we were prepared with earplugs. Other...

First off - the noise was not as bad as I was expecting after reading all these reviews. We stayed on the 5th floor for four nights, and I slept like a baby. The staff are really unhelpful. They literally could not care less about you. I was robbed at the metro and came to the reception looking for advice....

After reading numerous reviews stating how good this hostel was we decided to stay, only to realise the only good thing is the location. It's huge, there is no friendliness with the staff eg turning up for the 8am breakfast at 7:58 and being told To go away. Then proceeding to laugh, when the breakfast was ready to go. Pathetic....

This was my first visit to Mexico city, and overall I enjoyed my stay in this hostel. I stayed in a private room with a private bathroom in the 5th floor. I had my own private balcony which had a nice view. The only problem I had with this place was how loud it was. The music was playing until...

The location is great! 10/10 But the noise from the bar is shocking! the staff lie to you about when it will be turned off and you cant sleep with it. the walls shake from...

This hostel is full party all the time, if you are planning on resting or need some quiet time, this is not the place. There is a rooftop bar which plays very loud music from 10 up to 2AM, after that guests will shout and be loud as they exit the building or drunkenly head to their rooms. Stayed here...

Very efficiently run hostel. Facilities, except the nice rooftop bar, showed signs of needing an upgrade but were clean. Breakfast was fantastic with options of hot and cold foods and fresh fruit. Staff was very helpful. Travel agency on premises if you didn't want to explore on your own. Daily activities offered. Great vibe of people. Kitchen available for cooking....

Only good thing I could say about this hostel is purely location. Bar upstairs could be good but it's cold the now and they have no heaters. Beds are rock solid and if anyone in the room rolls over you hear it. Pillows are about 100 years old. Staff have zero intention of helping you. Laundry was done asked where...
