Great staff, beautiful hostel, no bunk beds which is great, and central location so nice for someone new to the city!

The location was great, close to Zocalo and it was a very good price fo he room that we got. The staff was really friendly and the breakfast was quite good. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to go to Mexico city.


A very clean place to stay. The staff is always smiling to you and very helpful. It's close to Zocalo so the location is good as well. The only trouble is the Internet is not working well sometimes. But still an excellent hostel I've ever stayed.


We (Couple) stayed double bedroom with private bathroom 5 nights. Good location for sleep, sightseeing and MTR . Nice and friendly staff.


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!
