The staff are friendly and helpful. Bilingual and insightful. They put out a good breakfast every day. It's near the zocalo and good coffee shops like cafe emir and cafe jekemir. It is a youth hostel so it has a hip vibe. And it is in the heart of the city so it is active all the time. Staff mentions...

Really liked the dorms, the location and the fantastic service. The best place to stay in the city if you are looking for a good location and cheap price. Recommend on going on tour to the pyramids through the hostel.

The beds are thin but comfortable, but the frames, and doors, are very noisy at night and in the morning. The breakfast was very plain compared to other hostels. The kitchen and fridge are usable by guests. There is a lounge on the first floor, with TV and comfortable chairs, and more like a dining room on the second floor...

When checking in the service was terrible, the worker was drunk and he just didn't care about anything. Breakfast was average and random. The rooms are hot with no windows and small, smells really bad! The lady the next day at the desk was lovely and helpful and actually answered our questions! I asked one of the male workers at...

A girl of our group got her luggage lost by the flight company: after our group (and so the owner of the luggage) left the hostel, hostel amigo retired her luggage without telling her anything, with a false signature. After that, they denied this fact with the owner, saying that they did not retire anything. I guess they could be...

The food provided is tasty and make this a great value option, and the location is great as well. We stayed in a private double room which was comfortable enough, especially for the price.

Clean, located a few blocks from the zocalo and right by food. The hostel offers a ground level bar and pretty fast wifi. Not the world's cleanest bathrooms but satisfactory none the less. Over the weekend it had more of a party atmosphere so be prepared. All in all very good.
