    This is my third time staying at Hostal Central (previous times in 2017 and 2018) and the hostel remains a wonderful place to stay with fantastic staff, rooms, breakfasts, and group activities. I am sure I will find my way back yet again.

    Great hostel. Met plenty of social people, the hostel also runs Mezcal tastings, mole tastings and different tours. The staff were extremely nice and helpful, it was my birthday one of the days I was staying here and they even got me a cake which was a really nice sentiment.

    Had a really enjoyable 6 night stay. The staff and many volunteers really helped make this a great place. The hostel is smaller and more intimate than most while still full of of interesting travelers. Highlights included a mole night, a pizza night, excellent breakfasts every day, and smaller rooms. The 4 Bed Ensuite was a bit noisy with the street, but had fans for white noise and it was good enough for me. All of the other rooms were more sheltered.

    This is such a nice hostel!! Super clean, comfortable beds, good wifi, and daily activities. All of the staff are so kind and make you feel like part of their family. Also probably one of the best breakfasts I’ve had at a hostel. The atmosphere was a bit quieter at night than other hostels in the area but it’s perfect if you are looking to catch up on sleep and there are still plenty of opportunities to meet people at breakfast and activity of the day. I would definitely stay here again

    Staff were so friendly, breakfast was great, loved the tour offered and the pizza/taco nights. Room was comfortable and good facilities. Bathroom was not cleaned often and it was dirty the nights I was there.
