Stayed here twice and it's wonderful! Quiet, great location, feels more like a guest house than hostel. Has lovely common areas, lots of plants and is bright and cheerful.


Lovely hostel, very quiet so if you're looking for a party hostel probably better to look elsewhere. Clean, helpful staff, luxurious sized rooms, and the internal part of the hostel is beautiful. Lots of comfortable communal spaces. Only a 5 min walk to the Zocalo.


Perfect stay and wonderful atmosphere, the only problem was the bathroom / shower was quite dirty on the third day.

Beautiful hostel set around open air courtyard. Security was very good for an inner city location; front desk staff was outstanding. 5-bed male dorm was huge, they could easily get 12 beds in there (bunks) but choose not to. Otherwise, hostel seemed relatively quiet, not sure on an offseason weekday how many people would be staying there. Beds comfortable, showers hot. The only downside is it is a longer walk to the Metro than you would think, and once you get there you are shoving threw crowds.


Wonderful place to stay. Everything about it can be recommended. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, clean rooms and good mattresses and great location. You could not really ask for more. I hope my next hostels in Mexico will be just as pleasant as this one!


Large and spacious hostel, I enjoyed the surroundings (lots of plants, even some birds in a sizeable cage). Friendly staff etc too. Very quiet (not many other guests), which may or may not be an advantage!


Great place! The staff were super helpful and it was a great location. It was hard to meet the other guests, though, despite the open courtyards… everyone seemed shy and kept to themselves. There was no lock on the room's windows, they swung freely, so, luckily there was a locker in the room. It's a very pretty hostel complete with a bird sanctuary! I would love to stay here again.


The staff here are all super nice, good location, place is one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in. Probably a little bit on the quiet side is only drawback, but definitely recommend this as a place to stay.


Very happy with our stay, the staff were very patient with a group of non spanishnspekers from Australia.
