    I spent four nights at this hotel and had nothing more amazing that positive help by the employees, they were very knowledgeable about the area and shared a lot of incite on things to do around the city. My wife and I enjoyed the cleanliness of the rooms at this hotel and they were always so quick to help resolve any issues we might have had. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great local stay to be in and out of the high trafficked areas and markets.

    Thank You Selina! It’s been {a long overdue} 17 years since I’ve taken an international {from USA} solo trip, and the past 9 days that I’ve spent in this magical place— Selina— has imparted on me an immense renewed vision and hope for the future. The most outstanding offering for me was not the room or the masterfully fun and playful interior designs — it is simply the PEOPLE. 🧑🏾‍🍳

    This is my favorite hostal I have stayed at! I am super happy they had 24hr security at the entrance of the building. The staff was friendly and helpful. The building itself is beautiful and modern. I was impressed with the kitchen and shared areas. I stayed in one of the dorms and the value for the money is great. The only downsides were that the room got pretty hot at night even with the fan on, and the bathroom was not well kept. The metro is super close, which is great. I highly recommend

    Really conveniently located hostel. Great checkin process and staff was excellent. Only complaint is that the room got kind of hot at night, even with the fan.

    A good place to stay with predictable expectations. More social than some Selina's. The 4 bed rooms are a bit crowded. The area is near much and a metro line.

    Great location in the day time pretty central to all the main attractions, but not the best night life around the hostel unless you're at the hostel bar

    All the staff were so kind and friendly, they helped me to get around Mexico City and with bookings and laundry, the young lady and young man at the front desk were really pleasant. Even the security guards were so nice. I would 100% come back again :)

    The staff were not helpful at all. I wanted to change the dates of my stay and they wouldn't do it 'cause they said I should arrange that with hostelworld. Then, I wanted to cancel the rest of my stay and I still received a cancellation fee, even though I had stayed 2 nights there and told them from the very beginning I wanted to cancel the rest. Also, a guy checked out and his bed was full of weed and the hostel didn't clean up until the day after.
