    Staff were multi lingual and very helpful. The location could not be better. Walking distance to the Metro, museums, etc.

    I found my stay at Hostal Mundo Joven to be very good, though I am not young. The staff was friendly, outgoing, and helpful. Their breakfasts are very good and well organized, and it has a social atmosphere, which I appreciated. One couldn't ask for a more perfect location. The only not great thing about the hostel was that the showers were only tepid- but that may be fixed pronto. Since the bathroom and shower were private and attached to the dorm room- it was another plus.

    This place has a GREAT location. Behind the big church at the Zocalo. Staff are nice and it’s safe. Small rooftop view by kitchen. I believe they also have a rooftop bar which I didn’t have a chance to check out. I stayed on the fifth floor, right below the rooftop bar and near the kitchen area. It was a bit loud after 10pm, it’s a younger crowd so it’s not surprising. The place has lots of rooms/beds, it feels a bit like a hotel. A near by toilet must have been busted, the fan helped a lot.

    Nice hostel, with a great location. Dorms are okay, bunk beds a little flimsy (like many places), breakfast isn't great, but the rooftop bar and balcony areas are excellent, with the views making it all worthwhile. The area is very safe, and well patrolled at night around the area. I would recommend for your budget backpacker.

    Not a hostel vibe in the slightest. More like a hotel. But not in a good way. Staff were not overly friendly. Didn’t really give me much info. The roof top bar is open to public so there’s a weird vibe going on. It’s like a normal bar in the street with all the locals. Not good for a solo travellers. Didn’t meet anyone. Nice clean beds tho. And slept great. Breakfast is decent too. I just wouldn’t rush back.

    In overall the hostel was not clean, bathrooms had a bad smell, poor showers, and is also under construction, the only good thing about the hostel is the location near the zócalo. It has a very nice rooftop thought, not a hostel vibe.

    No social atmosphere due to lack of spaces. The front was under construction and the rooftop catered to a more upscale, local clientele.

    My experience in this hostel was awful— there was a remodel going on that was very noisy and left a toxic smell in the air throughout the night. The hallways were very loud and echoed the party music upstairs and hallway conversations all night. Although the staff is punctual about closing the bar at a reasonable time, they seem hesitant to remove noisy groups in the late hours of the night. I expected more given the rating and price.

    I don’t understand why this hostel is rated so highly. It’s just a weird club with some rooms beneath there is no atmosphere. have to share an entrance with the club which is annoying. the music is so so loud and i like to party but it’s not what you want when you’re in bed! The facilities aren’t good, the shower was freezing cold with loads of exposed electrics. The only good thing was the lovely man on reception who really helped me out when I was having trouble with a taxi, thank u so much!
