    Beautiful oasis in a busy city. It was as if I was in Seville in Spain, with the courtyard of lime trees. Yet very Mexican with the artisan details throughout the kitchen and dining.

    Great, quiet hostel! The location is awesome- 5 minute walk to the main square (Zocalo). The 24/7 security guard makes you feel safe, and will escort you to your tour van or taxi so you know which one is yours (amazing if you have minimal Spanish). You receive a locker & key, towel, and soap with your stay as well as a pamphlet with suggestions and map. They will also book discounted tours for you (~500p). Breakfast is minimal (bread & fruit), but clean and appetizing.

    Beautiful garden and amazing staff! The rooms and bathroom though need renovation, they looked a bit old and thus not so clean (although the place was clean, and tidied every day). Free breakfast which is coffee banana cereal and bread. Great location, the place is very very secure, feels safe, although the street itself is not that nice at night.

    This is a very cute and different hostel. There are lots of common areas and it's a converted 19th century house which is really charming. It was a very quiet and dark walk back to the hostel at night just to be on your guard (but there are police at every corner in Mexico City)

    Very kind staff. Good location. Spacious. My only issue was that the bathroom was across the courtyard in another room so it was inconvenient to get to. Also, the place is a bit run down so it was scary at night. Otherwise, during the day the courtyard is beautiful and peaceful. It’s a quiet hostel so you won’t be able to meet many people here.

    Great location and nice hostel. But there is no social area and no exchange between travelers. We felt pretty isolated. The hostel itself is beautiful but we recommand you, create any kind of exchange, organised tour to pyrimdes, walking tour, gamenight, commun area, so that a social exchange can happen here.
