  • A very commerically run Hostel. Rooftop terrace is nice but other common areas and not great, kitchen was pretty limited and abused. Breakfast was great though.

  • I have stayed at this hostel 3 times now and keeps getting better. The location is at the perfect spot in Zocalo (main square downtown) and it is safe at any time. The 3 times I have been in a 6 persons mix dorm; rooms are nice and clean with a bathroom inside. Now they serve good breakfast that consists of eggs, beans, fruit, coffee and tea (included) at the roof terrace with an amazing view of the cathedral. During the night, the terrace turns into a bar where you can meet other guests.

  • Great hostel in great location! Close to everything and staff was really great in being helpful about everything you need. Breakfast was really good and balcony has a great view. Great to meet other travelers and have a couple drinks too. Everything was clean and maintained. Beds were pretty comfortable. I've stayed here on 3 different occasions and would stay again.

  • PROS: amazing location, amazing terrace, good price for the location, comfortable bed (was in a private 2 single room), nice sandwich at the downstairs restaurant. CONS: had to be moved to other room due to terrible smoke smell, very loud due to room facing the interior patio (though the noise definitely goes way down at 11, it picks up early again), not very clean, pretty beat up breakfast (went to 4 other hostels and all were WAY better). Note: i am a mom traveling with her 9-year old daughter

  • Hostel's rooms are arranged around an inner courtyard/atrium: there is an echo effect when someone was talking in the hall way on the first floor you could hear it loud and clear all the way up on the 4th floor. That makes a quiet night of restulness almost impossible. It's always noisy. Bathroom is not the cleanest either buyt tolerable.

  • Nice with a simple breakfast and access to the amazing bar on the terrace with view over zócalo! The Wi-fi was not reliable at all.

  • Pros: Excellent location (close to sights and metro), friendly & helpful staff, in-hostel restaurant and plenty of planned activities Cons: Mens washroom consistently smelled terrible, wi-fi was very inconsistent and the lockers don't well with regular sized locks (you can buy a new smaller lock at the hostel).

  • Fantastic and central location with a great rooftop bar that's conducive to making new friends. Had an amazing time there and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I felt very safe in the hostel and the staff is helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast is a little lackluster, especially around half an hour before it ends. Lockers, reading lights, and outlets for every bed in dorms which is convenient. All in all, a great place to stay and to make many new friends.
