Wonderful Mexican family owned and operated hostel. Bilingual, friendly and vey helpful staff. Met lots of exceptionally cool people of ALL ages and diverse nationalities. Good A/C, Internet and TV in room. Great pool, comfortable and pleasant dining/handout/lounge area.
We stayed 6 nights and would have moved after the first night if the Holiday Inn Express (a half block away) had not been fully booked. They never changed our sheet and/or towels. There is a refrigerator in the room. We have stayed in many hostels around the world, and have never before encountered a hostel that did not serve breakfast, and it's at breakfast that we meet and interact with other travelers. Internet connectionn is very sporadic. None of staff speaks English. Big disappointment!
The location is deep in the medina on a very narrow alley and very difficult to find if you come in at night. There is no heat, which makes both the common area and area for breakfast very, very cold. Staff was helpful when around. We stayed a previous night in a Riad about 7 minutes outside the medina that was less expensive and had a much nicer dining area. The bed was large and comfortable. Owing to the filth of the alley ways and motor scooter exhaust, I would not recommend a medina Riad.
Aaron is one of the very best travel advisors that I have ever known and used for very informative travel tips. He was extremely helpful on travel in and around Mexico City. Dennis James El Segundo (Los Angeles area), CA
