    They have a 24hr security type of situation so it's an extremely safe place to stay. It is located right next to the CDMX Cathedral and is very convenient to get to. I stayed in the 4 bed mixed room and it is a bit small, but I didn't really mind it. However, the bunk beds are positioned pretty much right next to each other. It's a great hostel to meet people as well. The only issue I had was that my check-in was delayed 30-40 minutes because the bed wasn't ready, but otherwise it was good!

    Great place for the price! I felt very safe, and the staff were welcoming and kind. The only complaint is the mosquitoes, there were many! But could also just be due to the timing and season.

    Kinda pricey compared to other places in Mexico, but apparently is in line with other places in that region in CDMX. It kinda has a cool atmosphere, but I missed a place where you could actually chill and meet other people - rather than the rooftop bar, which is cool, but it's kind of a place adjacent to the hostel rather than in the hostel, if you know what I mean.

    The Hostel is located next to the Cathedral and the Historical Center the Zocalo. If travelers are looking to learn about Mexican culture, go out to party and dance and meet people from around the world, Hostel Joven Mundo would be a great a choice! Travelers must be prepared to walk one to two blocks to the hostel from an Uber or Taxi. It is a great Hostel if travelers wants to meet people and go on tours.

    Not a place to meet people. Services look good on paper, but they are organized in a strange way. The kitchen and terrace are locked until 10am, so you can't make your own breakfast. Rooftop is closed until 2pm. There are cleaners everywhere around 9am, including exterminators in the rooms. I wish they cleaned later when everyone is out exploring. Dorms are spacious and have enough outlets and big lockers. Some showers have hot water. Breakfast and WiFi are good. Can't beat the location though.

    It was very loud and one bathroom of two im my floor was shutdown. The patio; both actually dont open until 2p and they should open for sitting even if the bar doesnt open until 2p.

    The only good thing about this hostel was the location. We were locked out of the hospital at 1am and the security guard was passed out at the front desk. There were 15 of us shouting outside and banging on the door, but he still didn’t wake up to open the doors. Our bathroom ceiling and walls were covered and stained with black mold. There was was no outlet in the bedroom as advertised (except for on the ceiling for a fan). We had to charge everything in the bathroom. Breakfast always ran out.

    Honestly not worth it. There’s not much of a community feel and they don’t even have towels for you to rent so I was having to use a bed sheet to dry off. A girl in my room was stealing my stuff and after I reported it they didn’t do anything about it. The top bunk doesn’t have a railing and i almost fell off a couple times. Stay somewhere cheaper

    Stayed at here for 5 nights expecting a really social and fun atmosphere, which is not what we got. The bar as advertised is open to everyone and is expensive for your average traveller. There is no common area, kitchen is tiny and not well equipt, and the balcony area has two tables. The other side was closed off to people staying in the hostel so I'm not sure what that was about. It was a great location, but the design of the rooms meant that any noise echoed up into the rooms. Disappointed.
