One of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. Dirty pillows with no pillow covers - we asked at the reception for the covers but they didn't have any. Men bathroom was completely gross - all the toilets blocked with fecales and toilet paper. Flushing the toilet made the water go out. Urinals in the same state full of urine and not flushing. The rooms have an aperture over the door and you can hear all your neighbours slamming the doors at night and early morning. "Free" breakfast with a tips box


bathroom could be cleaner, breakfast could be niceer, but amacing place. I definitely recomend this hostel for every bagpacker.

Good location. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. Toilets were very smelly! No wifi in my room. Overall a decent place.


Nice breakfast and location


Very good place, location amidst the historical downtown of Mexico City, with many bars and attractions nearby. Would be better though if the television wasnt generally in its highest volume and if there were more furniture in the place to eat breakfast. Also there werent any games available, and the refrigerator open for guests was very small and full Good breakfast, very clean, totally recommended!

In general, a good value for money including breakfast and dinner.


Kool hostel. Could do a better job at cleaning bathrooms.great breakfast.


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


Great hot showers, staff with pizzazz, no bar but 2 good communal areas. You can't go wrong and we had to come back just to have a little stopover at our home away from home when passing through Mexico City. Breakfast is still the best at any hostel if you love Mexican food - simple yet always flavoursome & a welcome break from toast! If we had to pick anything it was the wrestling tour was bit over priced/repetitive but the free tequila made it more interesting and it was a cool novelty anyway.


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
