Good hostel within easy walking distance of the main Zocalo, very easy to get to from the TAPO on the metro. The "bar" (a fridge) was out of beer when I was there, but that was better because we could just walk to the nearby Oxxo. Good common areas, easy to socialise. Wifi worked everywhere & was fast. Few strange long-termers in my dorm, but other than that this hostel was great.


Kitchen facilities poor and not very clean.. One tiny fridge which was already filled with hostel breakfast items. Two large fridges locked and out of use. 8 bed dorms were in fact 10 beds crammed small room. No windows in entire hostel which meant no ventilation anywhere. Worst smelling hostel ive ever stayed in. Bedding had a terrible stench, indicating beds were clearly remade without being washed and changed!


Nice hostel with great location. The only problem is that you have to book online, because if you go straight to the hostel without a reservation, the price they tell you is much higher (around 60 pesos more). It is crazy that we had to book for more nights through the Internet instead of going one floor down to the reception!

Not too bad, just no windows in the dorms, the air get a bit smelly. Breakfast can be from avg to good depending on the day. Prices are not too bad, but better for better deals book thru HW


This was my 2nd stay at Hostel Amigo. It is a wonderful location BUT not this time. Construction across the street/window over the road, busy street, difficult to sleep. Breakfast usually wonderful but this time large group ate breakfast & rudely held their meeting making it difficult for other guests to eat or go take a shower without embarrasment. Staff did nothing about this. Staff did our laundry & the cost was minimal.


There were hot showers which was amazing. The staff were all so cool and it felt like home away from home. We even stayed there twice. Very affordable dorm rooms but the beds were kind of made of plastic so a bit uncomfortable. It doesn't matter though, the hostel is amazing


One incident when food was rotten

Incredible value for money for a capital city hostel in a nice area. Free breakfast and dinner - both hot. Only negative is the bar never looked stocked and the urinals were always full of urine


I had a room without window, poor ventilation. Room was smelly. Beds were shaky and you will wake up when your bunkbed buddy turns over. Staff is nice and easy going.
