Very very good hotel and cheap
It is a very good hotel for the money. Room is perfect size. Bathroom is good. Staff don't speak English but that's not a problem really. First I thought it was hard to get to, but the metrobus drives very near. The area is safe.. Some told me it was close to Tepito and therefore unsafe (probably the reason for the low price), but the hotel is not located there and because it's close you will see police guarding the area more often. I felt hundred percent safe.

Universal is chill
It’s a cool convenient spot. I like the set up of privacy in the way the building interior is setup.

If you can use taxi or bus, it would be fine. Price is the strongest point above all.

Great value for the price
Great hotel for the price! Room is clean, bed is comfortable, neighborhood is quiet. There's food stands around the corner, a restaurant and pharmacy across the street and bus stops a block away. We lost power with a tremor from the Oaxaca earthquake, and they had it back up a few hours later, even though it went out after 5pm. The shower set up is kind of odd, because the shower sits almost right over the toilet, so the toilet ends up needing to be dried off. The entire room only had 2 plugins to charge our electronics... And one of those was in the bathroom. Comes with being an old building, I suppose. Neighborhood felt safe. My teen and I walked home after dark a few times and didn't feel uncomfortable at all.
