We're a lively joint at Hostel Mundo Joven Catedral and the most visited in the city – want to know why? We're fun, friendly and there are tons of freebies! Every day there's a free breakfast and bargain-priced drinks in our Barpack bar. You can also grab a cocktail or a beer up on the rooftop terrace or get a bite to eat at our BBQ events. Join us on one of our off-the-tourist-path free walking tours (of markets and pulquerías) and get a taste of local culture on our renowned guacamole, tequila and salsa nights.

    A lovely little place right outside a beautiful church (you can also get great vistas of said church from the rooftop bar). Breakfasts were amazing as well, but it gets a little loud at night.

    I had a day long layover in Mexico City so i decided to check into this hostel. The roof top is by far the best aspect. You have views of the city. The bar is nice, the staff is friendly, the drinks are made well. I didn’t have the breakfast. What i didn’t like were how the showers operated. You have to constantly push a button for the water to run or it would stop

    Amazing view and location! Bedrooms are comfy and a good size! The kitchen is not worth cooking in as it takes so long to boil/cook anything! Overall good value for money :)

    Hostel is in a great location, awesome views from the terrace. It can be super loud at night but as long as you know that beforehand it’s all good. Ive seen cleaner hostels but overall not too bad.
