    Their kitchen and patio is a great place to make friends. I never fail to learn new things in Hostal Mundo Joven, and y stay there is very pleasant, The staff is friendly, and the breakfasts are good. If you don't have a laptop or phone, you'll find it hard to do internet, becvause it lacks a public machine. There is no tv room either- but that is probably why the social atmosphere is so good- one is forced to be social without staring at a screen! The beds are firm, the rooms clean!

    The location is amazing! Directly off of the zocalo, in the historic district. Walking distance from a bunch of sights, great metro access. Lovely ground-level cafe and a private terrace with a very nice view of the city. However, does feel kind of like a hostel for a younger crowd. I got lucky and shared a room with some really awesome folks, but there were a bunch young kids running around and the building has a public rooftop bar that plays loud music on weekends.

    The place was nice to stay. There is a rooftop bar and on weekends it’s pretty busy and noisy but during the week it’s not too much of a problem as the bar closes at midnight. The breakfast was pretty good as well. Not a bad place to stay.

    Shared dorms were grubby. Decent enough security. Showers were useable but not great. Nice rooftop bar but very noisy when trying to sleep. Provided breakfast is ok but don't expect to enjoy it. Good location.

    I'll start with the upsides of this place... The location is unbeatable, the breakfast is OK and most of the staff people working there (especially the volunteers) were extremely nice. Now to the downsides: definitely not the cleanest place I've stayed in, overall rather expensive for what it has to offer and the worst one for me was indeed how loud it was, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. There's a rooftop bar and they show no consideration what so ever to the people staying in the hostel.

    No natural light in the rooms was pretty annoying. Hot water only worked in 1/3 showers on our floor. Breakfast was ok but pretty basic. Location is ok but far from the more lively areas such as coyoacan, la Roma and la condensa.

    I booked a private suite and it was by far the WORST derelict room I had ever inhabited in my life. The shower water was cold and you have to press a button constantly to keep the water running. Same issue with the basin tap. The windows are wooden and so you never receive natural light. The lobby is always noisy which makes it difficult to catch sleep. Overall, the worst hostel experience and I would not recommend staying in this place.

    Wir haben auf Reisen selten so ein schlechtes Hostel erlebt. Das Personal ist unflexibel und unfreundlich. Obwohl bei uns im Zimmer in der gesamten Zeit noch ein Platz frei war, musste unsere dritte Person in einem anderen Zimmer schlafen. Auf unsere Beschwerde wurde kaum reagiert. Es ist sehr sehr dreckig (Abfluss in der Dusche verstopft, überall Haare) und laut. Das Frühstück ist sehr simpel aber in Ordnung. Das einzig Gute ist die Lage in der Nähe des Zocalo. Nie wieder dieses Hostel!
