I was very pleased with the hostel ,especially the staff and the security.There was plenty of hot water for showers,which I am not used to. Everything was great.


This is an amazing facility for someone on a tight budget. There is little atmosphere, basic rooms, and only wifi on the ground floor, but there are clean bathrooms with hot water (and no locks on any of the doors), daily room cleaning on offer, and lovely helpful staff, most of whom have some English. They even arranged a taxi for me on departure! The location is good, (right by Metro Juarez) and fairly quiet for central DF. Really close to the best place to go looking for gifts, too.

Excellent value, friendly staff, very secure and clean. It's like a community/recreation centre that also has accommodation. Not a place to hang out with other travelers. Have stayed here before and will again.


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 was not at the hostel. I had to look for another place in the region. The room is really dirty. The environment was bad and the region is pretty ugly. Do not have internet in the room and the elevator is very old and apparently without maintenance. Much lower than the other YMCA in NY. One of the worst places I have ever stayed.


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
