    Gael Condesa is an absolute gem of a hostel. Located in the heart of the Condesa/Hipódromo neighborhood, Gael Condesa is a 15 minute walk away from Parque Chapultepec, the Museo Nacional de Antropología, and the neighboring barrios of Polanco and Roma. The hostel staff were very friendly and instantly made me feel at home. They went out of their way to organize hostel events where I met travelers from all around the world. The rooftop terrace is a great place to relax after a long day.

    The hostel is in a great location for exploring Condesa and the rest of the city. The bunks are really nice - privacy pod style. The rooftop terrace is fantastic. All the staff were awesome.

    Great location which means a lot in CDMX. It's design owes a bow to Japanese. Very clever and very compact. Lots of electric outlets and lights in bunk. Good restaurants abound and wonderful walks getting to them.

    Gael is clean and in a decent location for seeing the sights of La Condesa, but is unfortunately devoid of almost any atmosphere and featured some pretty unfriendly staff during my stay

    I'm really not sure where all the positive reviews of this place come from--maybe friends of the "staff"? The hostel is dark, dark and cold feeling, partly from the extreme minimalism and partly from the unwelcoming staff. At check-in, there was no "welcome" and certainly no tour of the rooms/facilities. They couldn't even put in the effort to pretend they were excited we were there. Also, only one toilet for 14 beds? Yikes. Definitely wouldn't recommend.
