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.
Gorgeous spanish style two story hacienda with 24 hour security and huge rooms overlooking a beautiful courtyard - even the dorm rooms are incredibly spacious. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, breakfast is free and very good. It's centrally located near all the sights and close to the subway. We stayed 4 nights and didn't want to leave - it was lovely and chilled. Highly recommended!
Very happy in all aspects except breakfast was a bit limited.great staff and atmosphere
The hostel is located in central historical area, the staff were all extremely nice and helpful. The security was excellent with 24h concierge at the door. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The hostel has a very large open yard for meals and leisure, with many plants and even raised birds. Sitting there was very enjoyable. They have a very nice breakfast too.
Affordable, in the heart of the historic center, on a quiet pedestrian street, moments from ancient churches, bench filled plazas, inexpensive, typical restaurants, a large Mercado selling fresh fruits and tasty meals at family-run stands. Comfortable single bed without any upper bunk wobbling. A large kitchen with all utensils and dishes leading outdoors to tables in a pleasant courtyard. The rooms are spacious with individual lockers. Christina in the office is kind and helpful.

Lovely place and great value for money. Located right in the historical center. I found the area to be much too busy during the day, but the Casa San Ildefonso was a nice oasis from that.. Ample facilities, quite clean and well taken care of. I stayed over a week and enjoyed it. They even offer massages on the premises one day a week (females only, though)! Try to get a room near the courtyard to have WiFi working in your room (although you might get woken up early by breakfast noise.
Beautifully renovated, so peaceful with the open air courtyard and enormous cage of finches, fountains. Good wifi, gracious family who has restored this building, immaculately clean.
We stayed in February at this lovely hostel and the staff couldn't has been more helpful. The hostel is very quaint, the rooms spacious and tidy and the breakfast is simple (cereal, juice, coffee and toast) but nice. The only downside I found was that it was quite chilly in the room at night. And the bathroom door was really squeaky! But would definitely recommend.
If you are looking for a laid back, secure, clean place in an amazing house close to all major attractions you found it! Staff is very helpful and friendly and it is more of a boutique hotel rather the hostel. Beds are so great! House is well equiped and lots of common areas to chill. Very good taste for decoration...Absolute yes to this place!
