This hotel is literally located just across the street from the famous Zócalo. You will be perfectly fine walking to most sighseeing destinations. Premises are probably not the cleanest you will find, but should not bring any major issues. Note that people do smoke just outside the porch and it does filter into the common area (not sure if it...

This hostel is right next to the Cathedral (not even one block away), pretty much the best location you could expect in DF. Very clean and the breakfest is good and free. Just be mindful that there are some very spicy nachos every couple of days, but you are in Mexico after all, so there is no better way to...

I had a better experience at this hostel's across-the-street partner, Mexico City Hostel Suites, which still has dorms but is a bit newer. Mexico City Hostel was fine for a night, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer than that. Facilities are shabbier, not unkempt, but not super-well maintained. Dorms are big and a bit loud. Not a great...

Like the headline is saying the hostel is located perfectly. The room was absolutely clean and the bathrooms as well. The included breakfast was alright. Wifi was not working properly. One thing to mention is that this hostel is bad for meeting people. There's no real common areA except for 2 sofas at the TV floor.

As others have pointed out, the location steps from the Zócalo is perfect for anyone interested in Mexican history. It's also well served by two metro stations within a few minutes walk. The staff speak good English, and the place is as clean as a whistle top to bottom, something much appreciated in budget travel. My private room with its...

For the price, which is about US$19/night for the big dorm, I didn't think it was worth the money. Yes, it was clean, secure, and had Internet, but that is kind of standard for most youth hostels, especially in cities. The staff was helpful, and breakfast was included, but, it was mediocre at best. In the future I would definitely...

We stayed in a double room with ensuite. This hostel is centrally located with very clean & spacious rooms. The staff sepak excellent English & are helpful. The buffet breakfast is plentiful & nutritious with yoghurt, fresh fruit, eggs, toast, tea & coffee. We didn't encounter any street noise issues.

I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm for a few night. The hostel is located right near the historical centre and a short walk from the metro line, although I wouldn't feel safe walking around there at night and it was quite noisy with many shop fronts nearby. It is a lovely old historical building located upstairs behind security...
