100MXN a night for a dormitory? I'll take it! Great value, friendly staff, and only a few blocks away from the main zocalo, rastaurants, churches, and pedestrian streets. Highly recommended!

The owners are nice and helpful if you can identify or find them. The place is full of live-in pretentious hippies who for the most part scour and judge. The atmosphere is therefore cliquey and unwelcoming. The rooms are freezing and have wholes in the roof. The kitchen is filthy. The bathrooms are okay and bleached daily. Stay somewhere else


Very nice place to stay for a small budget trip. A bit roots. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Not well isolated so might be noisy and also cold at night. But we received so many blankets that it was ok! We had double room with shower and toilet for the price of a dorm in other hostel. Bathroom in our room was clean. Common bathrooms -it depends.One of the best deals for us in Mexico.
