Great hostel, few minutes walk to the Metro and malls. Hot clean showers. Fast wifi and big breakfasts!!! Need more plugs in the rooms however, we had to share a multiboard between the entire room

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Happy to hear you enjoyed the big breakfast, we think it is so important to start the day right. I hope you can stay with us again soon! Enjoy your travels. Cheers, Cassandra Moore - Assistant Manager

Overall a nice hostel to stay at. Great location. strong wifi but best of all 24/7 air-conditioning!! Free pancake breakfast. Stayed in a dorm and felt very comfortable. However the one downside is the 3-4 cats who appear stray but allow to walk all over everything, jump on tables while your eating. Running into rooms when doors are opened. No where did we see this advertised about cats and both myself and partner had allergic reactions. If it wasn't for the cats we would happily stay again.

Sorry about the cats, unfortunately they will be cats! What has happened is that backpackers have found abandoned kittens and left them with us, what we have are the ones we are unable to find homes. To be fair, we do state on our website that we have a constant supply of kittens,and we have photos of cats there as well. Some people do come because of that. I do understand the problem though, and I dont like them on the tables either, but other people feed them.....

Would have to say this is probably the best hostel I've stayed in. Felt more like a home then a hostel. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Always had the answers for any questions regarding the area. Beds are comfortable, wifi is good, great common area facilities and kitchen was best I've seen. And great hot showers! Would stay here again in a heart beat

Things this hostel have going for it, Location, Comfortable beds ad clean rooms. Favourite part of the whole place was the upstairs hammock area. The hostel has a basic kitchen area to use however their pet cats would often walk over the benches and cookware. The hostel does not offer free drinking water like most of the central American hostels due the fact you cant drink the water there. and only supply it for staff. No power due to outta hostel didnt tell us about and no internet for 2 days.

While there is nothing wrong with the place, there is still so much that needs to be fixed. Fast wifi, Good cooked breakfast, Great locatiom and staff are friendly. However we had no hot water our entire stay. our bathroom leaked so our floor was flooded for 4 days in our private. NO tolietpaper had to go and ask for it, secruity was a chain around the door that one of the 2 staff would unlock and on occasions you would have to wait cause noone was around or just come back later

Great place to stay. Very clean and quiet, not a party hostel. Rooms are large and cleaned daily Hard beds Fantastic breakfast, helpful staff. The hostel lacks a decent common area so socialising was hard. And if they ran more hostel based tours would be a plus aswel. Had early morning check out and the guy at reception tried to charge me for another night even after I had show him the receipt and hostelworld invoice. The main day Security guard is a fantastic guy. Super friendly and helpful.

Booked a twin private for me and a mate, hostel is in a great location and short walk to subway or Times Square. One thing they could work on is extending there wifi to the bedrooms and not just the common areas. As they close at 11pm Besides that everything was clean and the free breakfast was good. Staff were helpful with any inquiries about the city

The hostel closed down without informing anyone that had a booking. Leaving me and a friend unaware and stranded. Forcing us to look elsewhere paying for for such short notice. After contacting them numerous times and not getting any response. HostelWorld stepped in and they were mostly unresponsive to them. However I have been credited via HostelWorld customer service so I'm satisfied. I would however never recommend this hostel due to its poor communication skills and how they have handled it

I stayed 10 days at the Mexican city hostel. The hostel was in prime location in centro historico. All forms of transport were nearby. Staff where all very happy to help and give advice. And spoke English and Spanish perfectly. Rooms where very clean and spacious compared to others I have stayed in. Bathroom and showers where kept clean an tidy at all times. Only down side I found with the showers is that some take a little long to warm up. Nothing drastic at all. Great free breakfast.10/10

This was my first Hostel Stay ever, so i was worried at first. But once i was there i found the Place to be very Clean and Staff were great. never had any hassles. Downstairs bar had a decent night life and also meet some interesting people. great free breakfast. Only Downfalls i have are the rooms get way to hot, but that could also be from staying in a 12 bed room. major downfall are the showers, they need to make them last longer then 20 seconds.
