Set in an arty colonial-style casa, Mexico City Hostel is rooted in our city's heritage, but with a contemporary twist. We've got a patio for you to catch some sunny rays and a free breakfast – including coffee and eggs – to kickstart your day. You'll find everything you expect from a great hostel, from free Wi-Fi and a kitchen to comfy common areas and a 24-hour reception. And while we do all we can to help you enjoy staying in, we'll get you out and about too, arranging tours in and out of the city and sorting you out with free maps.


We're a six-minute walk from Zócalo square in Mexico City's historical centre, so you'll be close to markets, museums and monuments. There are also clubs and pubs nearby, or you could check out the nightlife in the Roma neighbourhood, a half-hour journey away (hop on the metro at Allende, a five-minute walk from our door). If you're coming to our hostel by plane, you can reach us from Mexico City International Airport on our shuttle – it takes about 30 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

Whether you're booking a dorm or private room, you'll have towels and linen included, plus ceiling fans to keep you cool. Bunks in mixed or female-only dorms have a locker for your backpack and shared bathrooms, while some of our private rooms have en-suites if you fancy an upgrade. There's 24-hour security and safe deposit boxes to help keep your things safe.

Extras and activities

If you're after relaxation, grab a novel from the book exchange or settle down in front of the satellite TV. We've got DVDs if you're up for a movie marathon with the friends you've met in your dorm. Leaving Mexico City but want a lie-in? Make the most of our late checkout. We've also got luggage storage if you've booked a trip on your last day with us but don't want to carry your backpack.

    I was one of 3 people there. Hard to judge during these times (covid). Clean, quiet, and a good location.

    Amazing Hostel really central to everything in CDMX. I would definately go again, Breakfast was good and really clean place, good showers. I couldn't ask for much more, a little abandoned since there is no real 'common' area but since I did not travel alone, I didn't care too much about this.

    This is indeed fantastic place except there's no soap in the restrooms. Location is 2-3 mins on foot to Zocalo and Metro, very clean and secure....the staff are friendly and willing to help in all they could do. Highly recommended!

    The Pros: Location Location Location. Not sure you could find a better spot for a hostel. Active. This is an active hostile. Plenty of people to talk to and hang out with and tours arranged through the staff. This hostel has it together. Price. Even for a private room, this was really affordable. Cons: Facilities. the internet was frustrating, it would just cut out without warning. There is no AC in the hostel. The hostel is over several floors and no elevator.

    Good hostel in the historic centre. Close to subway station at Zocalo Square. Nice staff and facilities pretty decent. Lacking in atmosphere - not the place to go If you want to meet other travellers but as a couple just passing through Mexico City we liked it.

    Very Good

    29 Feb 2020
    The room was nice, really small but had lockers inside which was good. Bathrooms were clean but unfortunately smelled rather bad which made our whole floor smell. Breakfast was great, there’s something warm served every day. If you’re a vegetarian however there are days when there’s only a meat option which is a shame. The WiFi was terrible, there’s about 5 different options and none of them ever worked properly for us, not in the rooms and not in the common areas either.

    Very Good

    The staff is very friendly and the reception is up for 24h, Location is great. Yet the wifi didn't work in the rooms and the hostel was absolutely freezing cold (stayed in january 2020). Laundry service was good and the place was silent. If youre looking something else besides sleep dont stay there, theres no atmosphere and social area is far from cozy.
