  • 10,0.Exceptional

    The mattress I had and pillow, were very good. the individual light over my bed didn't work. Breakfast started at 8 except when it didn't start until 8:30. the staff at the front desk were excellent. You can ask for a lock for the locker assigned to your bed. Breakfast consisted of oatmeal, toast, fruit, juice, coffee. They give you an extra top sheet that you can use as a screen between beds. each bed has its own electrical outlet. I've stayed here 2x, with college students and with people in their 70s and will stay again.

  • 4,0.Fair

    My advice: Choose a different location.

    They advertise wifi but it doesn't work in the rooms which is not advertised. The breakfast is bread and a piece of fruit if you stay here you will need to purchase additional food. The beds are terribly uncomfortable and there's no air conditioning. If you leave the window open for air the mosquitoes will get you. The door slams shut and there's no way to prevent it. Everytime someone goes in or out the room wakes up. They advertise they have an airport shuttle and they don't. They will offer to call a car for 400 pesos. You can get an Uber for 100. All of this could have been dealt with one issue at a time but the staff doesn't seem to know what customer service is. The only good thing about this hostel is the location.

  • 2,0.Poor

    Noisy. For a week they didn't clean the room. There was not any privacy between the beds. No curtains, no proper baggage places. No lift for 3rd floor. The staff was disorganized. They gave our key to someone else... I will never use this hostel again. For a few dollars more our friend stayed in a proper hotel two blocks from this hostel. Stay away from this place.

    Great location, beautiful surroundings

    Overall, we give it a 4 out of 5. A good stay but areas for improvement. First, the area is absolutely fantastic. It’s part of the Downtown Mexico complex which is beautiful. We had cocktails at the roof which was proper mixology and a fancy dinner at Azul which the food was to die for! Location for historic downtown is perfect, nightlife is better in other areas but you’re right by Zocalo and shopping areas. The shower is clean and big with changing space. Areas for improvement is you need two of your own locks to lock up your stuff. One for your main locker, which isn’t nailed down to anything and can be moved, and a second for a small lockbox that you can charge your phone or leave smaller valuables. I didn’t like how there isn’t individual lights in each bed, and there isn’t a charging station near your own bed (only the little locker that I mentioned). They provide wool blankets, which I’m not a fan cause wool is itchy. The complex is beautiful, but the dorm room can be improved logistically. Also it’s a bit unorganized for assigning beds, they give you a room and a key that’s assigned to a bed but then you just pick an available bed when you walk in the room. This made it confusing and I was concerned if someone would claim my bed or id claim a used bed. We changed rooms when we couldn’t find a clean bed for a room assigned. I’d recommend for a quick trip, but I did expect more for the price.
