This might be the most expensive hostel where I've stayed. It might also be the best -- everything was wonderful... except their wifi connection which is very weak throughout the building and logged me off continuously -- my phone and computer as well as other users' equipment. Nobody seemed to take the problem seriously. I will forgive that.
The shower in my dorm room was "permanently" not working --it was dismantled. I believe another dorm room had a similar situation. So we all shared the downstairs shower intended for use when the others are busy. The AC in my dorm room did not work and it became hot. Staff did not take that situation seriously. It seemed that people are LIVING in this place -- staying long-term? Other clientele did not seem to be international travelers. Staff was very friendly and mostly helpful.
3-4 blocks from the bus station, this place is good enough for a night while in transit to someplace else. There's little to do nearby -- the beach is several kilometers away. The staff was not particularly friendly, helpful, or professional. The facility is not particularly clean -- everything is sort-of sticky, and/or smelly. My 1-sink bathroom was shared with 15 other males and cleaned only once per day. The shared refrigerator is crammed with unmarked, unknown "stuff".
Good location. Excellent staff, friendly, helpful, engaged. Excellent common spaces for meeting new friends. I'm staying longer.
This place is a stone's throw from the cathedral and zocalo. The staff is friendly, helpful and engaged. Rooms that open to the front atrium are very noisy, day and night. People come into the hostel at all times of the night and talk loudly, especially (but certainly not only) the staff of the bar/restaurant on the first floor. Noisy! There's supposed to be a bar on the roof, but it's rarely open. Even not at at 5 and 7 pm on a Friday night.??? Hard to understand that.
Awesome. (isn't that word overused? if i could think of a word more superlative i would use it.) Everything about this place is professional and first rate.
Noisy in the early morning, late evening, and all day. The owner or manager's family actively use all the spaces and seemed to be having a party while I was there.
Great location. Nice breakfast on the rooftop. Nice people stay there. Choice of dorm or private room. But I'm not sure they ever clean my shared bathroom -- the same black hairs covered the shower drain when I arrived and when I left, full trash can, out of toilet paper. But still, I would stay again.
Extremely crowded when full. Somewhat "under construction". Hot water only on request if you can find somebody to request!

I liked this place, but it's unfortunate that there is only the most minimal and uninviting common room. There is a TV and tiny couch (for 2 people) and a bunch of high stools (no backs) around the perimeter of a tiny room. They claim there is a kitchen, but apparently it is off-premises and also inconvenient to use. I stayed for 4 nights but had no shared conversation with any other visitors.
