It's centrally located about 100m from the Juárez metro stop and about a block from the major tourist strip Avenida Juárez. Clean, well attended PRIVATE rooms and a very friendly staff, for 10 dollars a night? How is this possible? Oh, it's because it's a nonprofit supporting an excellent cause. Find a completely immersive spanish env.


I stayed here for two nights. It's a pretty cheap option about a 2 or 3 minute walk from the Juarez metro station. Got a private single room which was clean with a decently comfy bed which worked out to be about $160 MXN per night which is a pretty good deal in my opinion. The bed was warm and there was some closet space to hang some things. The security is pretty tight here and you have to leave your key whenever leaving. The wifi downstairs was pretty fast, I was downloading at 1MB/sec.


no wifi except in the lobby, no atmosphere, no common area


I lived in the fifth floor and there was no wifi. If I needed to use Internet I had to go to the first floor...It is quiet so it is good for relaxing, but no a good chose if you want to make some friends. But anyway it is super close to metro station so it is really convenient.


The section of Centro Historico where the hosttal is location has obviously been allowed to deteriorate over time, but noticeable efforts to bring back the area are everywhere in the refurbushing and new costruction. Many amenities are available from great security to close proximity to the metro. It is definitely more affordable in the section of YWCA than the up-scale Avenida Juarez a few blocks away which has a beautiful park with lots of trees and open space.
