I would leave the worst rating for this hostel if I could. I have been there in May 2018. It was amazing place with friendly staff. I decided for myself to book again this hostel on my next trip to Mexico City. I booked in advance (a month prior) two beds in a room starting Oct. 26th for a few days to visit parade of Dia de Muertos. When we arrived to the hostel about at 11 pm receptionist told us that hostel is closed and they don’t accommodate anymore. Our reservation was not cancelled by owner in advance and we didn’t receive any notices about that. We had to search a new accommodation close to midnight! Thanks people that helped us to spend the night. So next day we found new place.
This hostel is awful place as of today. If it will open again I never book there anything. Owner is unprofessional and selfish.
Very very bad hostel. Not clean, falling apart and rude staff. My bedroom was falling apart, and because of that my friend fell from the bunk bed and got hit badly. The kitchen and bathroom were disgusting. The toilet got clogged almost every day. The showers run out of hot water a lot. While sitting in the toilets, when it rains outside, water were dripping on me from the ceiling. The staff used to watch loud movies at night, when we asked to lower the volume at 00:30 they didn’t agree to do it. In the morning we woke up and not once found drunk people sleeping in the lounge from last night.
If you want to enjoy your time - don’t go there.
The good: location to nightlife, curtains and charging points on dorms, terrace
The bad: bathrooms and kitchen often filthy, the ladders to the bunk beds were so flimsy and weren't bolted down so I nearly fell off many times. Beds uncomfortable, not enough toilets. Poor breakfast. Room 6 has a bifold door which doesnt close properly so it is really loud late at night and early morning.
There are definitely better options in the area!
The hostel has everything you need to be comfortable but that’s not the only reason I loved it. Mostly the people were so welcoming and cool. There’s a funky roof terrace where everyone socialises and it’s an easy place to meet people. I instantly felt welcome. Free breakfast goes on until 12pm... something I wish more hostels did. There was always more than enough food. Eggs, bread rolls, jam, bananas and coffee or tea.
I stayed in a 14 person person dorm which was the cheapest option. Despite having so many people in the room it was easy to get privacy and sleep as each of the bunk beds has its own curtains so you can section yourself off. There are lockers to keep your belongings secure. The bathrooms are separate for boys and girls and were kept clean and tidy. There was always hot water in the showers and a towel is provided. The location is great and I will definitely stay again next time I’m in DF.
A friend and I checked in for 4 nights. The girl checking us in was rude and gave us no information. The first night I came back to my room twice to find someone else sleeping in my bed (two different people). All the staff are constantly getting high/drunk on the terrace and if you ask who is working they will all just shrug and aren’t willing to help. There was no apology for me having to move beds two times because they don’t write down who is in a room and in what bed. My first night I woke up at 3am to find a random guy going through my stuff. Breakfast is average, bread and jam. Staff are incredibly rude and simply don’t care, and seem surprised if you inquire as to why there’s no toilet paper. Men use the women’s bathrooms which made me feel really uncomfortable. We were promised a refund for the first night but this never happened. We have also gotten strange insect bites from the beds. There hasn’t been any soap or paper towels in the bathroom the entire weekend I’ve been here. Literally the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed in and I’ve stayed in plenty!
