    Customer service is absolutely helpful, kind, and resourceful. Mr. Volunteer patiently guides me as how to navigate around city, what to visit and also arranges taxi and Uber for me as I only speak English while the whole country seems to be only Spanish. The excellent customer service certainly made my stay very pleasant.

    I had an excellent stay. The staff was amazing and always available to give tips, make conversation, and ask you how your days are. The location is also perfect close to the center and near a metro station. I had a great time and would definitely return.

    The hostel was great, convenient location and clean. Be aware that you have to pay in pesos even if you're a foreigner and so you have to pay 19% more than the advertised price.

    It was a very nice hostel! We stayed in a room with a double bed and everything was great. The only issue is that our room had a window facing the street so it could get noisy at times. Other than that, I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Great and safe place to stay in good location close to shops and attractions. Breakfast was pretty basic but otherwise would highly recommend. Felt more like a hotel than a hostel.

    We had a slow week at this hostel. Not a lot of people there and there were some renovations going on. Our first encounters with the staff weren't great, as we felt as if we were not really welcome there. This got better over the week. The hostel is very well located, near restaurants, cafés and the red metro line. Fair price. No breakfast or food in the hostel.

    The toilet at private bedroom stinked, and the hostel has a rule that at 12 o 'clock as late at night you must return or you stay out all night because theres no more reception or someone to open the door. Overall it seemes that in the past it was a busy hostel, nowadays it's pretty desert and with no great development to keep nice the place. Beds are very confortable and clean, location is fine.

    Staff was nice but other than that would avoid. No outlets for top bunks, no ladders to access top bunks, rooms are dirty and have little storage space, and most importantly no AC so the rooms are 30 degrees at night

    We arrive Christmas Day, no Christmas dinner, no events, no person on reception to help us as where to go or what was open, the first night we had a couple of drinks in the common area by which we were told to go to bed at 12.30, the second night we decided to stay out and came back at 1am on hostel world it says no curfew when we got back we were greeted by the most rudest staff member we have ever encountered!! Our stay wasn’t great, the showers were broken but we had a bed! Not worth money!!!

    The hostel it’s old and needs of renovations immediately. The bathrooms there aren’t privacy to take shower (just with some curtains to separate each space). The rooms are small, during the night it was hot and there wasn’t air. There aren’t lockers, but there was a TV in the dorm (I was thankful that nobody turned on it).
