  • It is NOT POSSIBLE TO SLEEP at this hostel in any room. They have 2 types of rooms: one that faces the Cathedral, and one that has window to the skylight, which doesn't have access to fresh air. So, facing the Cathedral, you are awakened every hour by the bells, and you don't sleep until midnight anyway, because there is always some noisy event at the Zocalo square. The other rooms don't have any fresh air, so you can't breath. Terrible, when room is full. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL!!!

  • The location can't be beat. Raul, the general manager, and the rest of the staff were all great guys. I met good people and had fun so I couldn't have asked for more.

  • The place is awesome, right in the middle of the most important landmarks. It is very safe to go around the place, and the hostel is very good. The hostel bar is quite expensive, but really worth to spend some time there. There were few things that didn't work: wifi, the card keys, and the staff is not very friendly. Specially at reception. if you can ignore that then it is the best place to stay in Mexico City.

  • Great location very close to the main square transportation hub, awesome view of the National Palace and several skylines of this sprawling city from the rooftop bar/patio area. Social atmosphere makes planned and impromptu parties on the rooftop something to remember. Rooms and facilities are adequate. My only complaint which is a common one in these reviews is the spotty wifi which toggles between nonexistent to frustratingly slow. They need to improve this ASAP.

  • It was unfortunate that the bar while a good benefit is rowdy every night. My room was right below the bar so you could hear everything, so the 4 nights I spent there were just terrible sleep. Due to the bar, people always come down stairs drunk, and therefore disturb everyone there. On one night, one guest was screaming at the top of his lungs and staff were not exactly quick to shut him up. It is unlikely i will return to this hostel even though i felt it was decent.

  • TOO LOUD! Dont stay on the 5th floor even if you want a suite... bar is right above you and people are wayyyy too loud... elevator was broken the 4 days we were there, so since we were on the 5th floor gues what? We went up the stairs... multiple times a day, up 5 flights of stairs

  • I finally have working wifi!!! So I'm able to write this review!, it was frustrating trying to book my future travels with no wifi after this hostel stating they had good working internet before I booked. Please fix your wifi!
