We only stayed for one night in a double room shared bathroom. The building is quite interesting inside, high ceilings and wooden beams etc. It's clean, the bathrooms have hot showers, and the reception staff are very friendly and can speak English if you need it. Breakfast is fairly limited but free! It's a great location close to the metro...

I was here in late July with my friends. The first negative thing was not to be in the same room, even though we had booked all of the beds in a single solution. We asked to be in the same room for the next two days and, although we were told that there were no problems of any kind,...

I stayed in the 6bed mix room. It felt very crowded. other hostels I have stayed at, provide more space within the room. Each person gets their own locker, just no lock. (always travel with at least two mini locks) They provide free, and delicious, breakfast. Templo Mayor is literally around the block. Great place to stay in

On our first stay to Mexico City hostel - we were initially disappointed. It's a beautiful hostel, offers all the facilities you would need and has such a fantastic central location. The issue was - it wasn't very social and at times we found the staff to be quite rude. We stayed in the in an 8 bed dorm for...

The hostel was definitely not filled to capacity when I stayed here. I was in a private double room so I cannot speak to the dorms but the room had lots of extra space for us and giant beds (two twins pushed together for each person). The bathrooms additionally had 6 showers and 4 toilets so there were no waits...

I really enjoyed the overall central feeling location of this hostel. It was 2 blocks from public transit and a block from their government center. With in a 10 minute walk you could find all of the shopping that you wanted, stores, bars, etc. The hostel itself was clean, no complaints about safety or cleanness. There is a small community...

This hostel has been beautifully renovated. The art work, the colors, the architectural details are fantastic. So, don't let the inconspicuous entrance fool you: glass double doors at street level that bring you to an iron electric gate that's managed from the reception upstairs. You ring the door bell and someone buzzes you in after checking their security camera. My...

Very nice rooms, somewhat of an interesting view if you have a balcony. Towels are not change often so you´ll have to ask for them at the lobby. Overall is a nice hostel, very clean with a nice staff and nice high ceilings.
