Cool hostel in downtown
The location is good for transit, but is not to good to walk at night. The hostel is really stylish, cool, staff very friendly. There are good common areas. The main problem is the bathroom cleaning. It is often without toilet papet or toilet clogged up. The room are good and has room service everyday. They put us in a room without window, but after I complain about it they changed me to another room. The room pictures showed window on the website.

It's a nice hotel cum hostel with a very nice decor. I have a free upgrade from a room of 16 beds to a room of 12 beds with no extra charge. The beds are comfortable and the frame of the bunk bed are pretty solid so it's not rickety like the other hostels. It's a good place to stay for a budget and there is a cinema to enjoy whenever you can. The area is near Salto Del Agua metro station and the entrance is just beside the hotel on Eje Central 1 on Line 8. Overall is a good place to stay whatever your budget is.
