    10/10, these guys were great. Extremely kind, knowledgable, able to lock our stuff away after checkout so we could explore until time to leave. Good breakfast, wonderful open air atmosphere, plants growing everywhere, workers doing improvement (investment in your business is always a good sign). Felt very safe w/ person to man the door at all times to locked gate. The only thing lacking was the availability of potable water during the day. It was available to fill at breakfast.

    Absolutely AMAZING hostel. Beautiful courtyard that made for a perfect spot to chill in the mornings and afternoons. I loved the daily breakfast of bread, jam, bananas, granola, and coffee, and made several friends from other countries while we ate in the mornings. The staff were all extremely kind and accessible, and I felt very safe due to the 24 hour security (the hostel door is locked at night and you ring a bell to be let in). I could not recommend this place more!

    Great place to start your time in Mexico City. Close to the Zocalo but quiet tranquil courtyard to chill in after a day in the crowds!

    Excellent location on a quiet street in the Centro Historic. It is very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The peaceful courtyard is a great place to start your day or relax away from the bustle of the city.

    I have mixed feeling about this hostel. The positives are it’s in a great location, very clean and a nice calm atmosphere. The staff are nice too. What needs to be improved is the cold showers and water pressure. The wifi is dismal. It was non existent in my room and in the shared areas it barely worked.

    I liked it here but it’s definitely lacking a few “luxuries” like wifi in the room, hot water, and heat. It was quite cool and drafty at night, and the doors are super noisy (like old tin barn doors that are hard to open and close - there’s no way to leave the room without waking everyone inside and your neighbours). For the money it was a great location and very secure - the security guard even walked us to our Uber at 5am in the dark. We felt very safe here and the grounds are beautiful.
