    We only stayed here for one night but would definitely want to stay again! The staff were really great, giving us a map and showing us the main sites in the city centre. They were also really helpful in showing us how to get to Hierve el Agua without a tour. The facilities were all really good, although the kitchen was lacking a few things. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the free breakfast was excellent and vegetarian!

    First, the staff is AMAZING. Friendly, open, helpful, this is a major advantage. The location is in the zocalo, but like 15min from the main center - it’s a little bit far away. Good Mexican breakfast everyday, super clean, great common areas. There is 3 bathrooms (real good bathrooms) for the whole hostel though - you will wait to take your shower and/or the toilet! I really appreciated my time here, definitely recommend it.

    Great place to stay. Very safe and secure other than not having a lock on the bedroom door itself (you can put your belongings in a locker). We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay! Only downside was there wasn’t much of a social vibe. People sat and chatted in the outside area occasionally but definitely not a drinking type hostel.
