    It's in the middle of the city. My bunk bed was in the middle and that was pretty tight there but i made it work. Overall it's a nice Hostel with an amazing location.

    Hostel is inside a Gourmet Market where bars are till late from thursday to saturday. Beds have not enough space to sit and no lockers (actually just the laundry room which is open mostly at cleaning time) . Rooms are extremelly small for nine people. I have been lucky to be only 3 in the room.

    the market is nice and staf were realy friendly. great location, with a slight trouble to find the place at the beginning th- no one in the neighbourhood, seemed to know it when i asked for directions, so have the map at hand. the biggest problem tho- size of the bed... u cant seat up straight and it takes a skill to climb up to your bunk, as the leaders are placed in d most useles places... im rather shor but spet d night banging my elbows over the walls everytime i moved any of my limbs

    The market was really nice and the staff were very helpful. The roof terrace was also really good way of being social and meeting people. However the beds were just too small and cramped, not an ideal place to spend a few nights which is unfortunate because everything else makes this hostel great.

    Beds are comfy but very shallow you can’t sit up in them. They also aren’t good for tall people I’m 5ft8 and barely fit length ways. The toilet is through the cafe bar area, not ideal when in PJs and it’s late at night. Great location and only a short subway to the centre. Also easily walkable if you want a 30 minute stretch.

    Loved the location (tacos pocho, el morro churros, les bellas artess, zocolo, the central/north/south bus all close) but it's SO loud. I heard everything going on in the room next door all night long. Saturday night there was music blasting until 1 am, but on Sunday it was completely quiet. So if you're a light sleeper bring ear plugs and be ready. Also the beds are quite tight (can't sit up in them at all) they're more like pod beds. Showers were gross, rest was clean and beds were made daily.

    The rooms were way too small to fit 9 people. It was probably less than a metre squared per person. With the bags in the room there's barely any space to walk though, to get in the beds you literally have to jump in already laying down cause you don't fit sitting down. There's only 3 showers per sex and the toilets are far and to get to them you have to pass by the common areas. The only upside about this hostel is the central position.

    Ridiculously sized beds and rooms, no atmosphere, staff is mostly nice but not very helpful. Not the best area in town. It’s situated in a food court with junk food, which opens lte and closes early. It’s pretty.

    Location was great and free filtered water, however the rooms didn’t have locks and were just tiny boxes with loud swing doors to them, wifi only worked in the early morning hours, walls are made of paper and could hear loud and clear the reception girl singing let it be for half an hour, somebody playing duolingo or the reception guy talking about how he speaks 5 languages at 5am. Not really any atmosphere even though it was booked out since the hostel is kinda missing a chilling out space

    Cramped shoebox style rooms, insanely hot and stuffy. If you are over 6ft you will have to sleep slightly bent as the Walls on each end of the bed are no bigger than 6ft apart. Wifi is atrocious, struggled to organise the rest of my trip. There isn’t anywhere in the room to store your bags so I slept with my bag on my small bed for a few nights. Not a hostel to meet other people, no social scene. For what you pay it’s not worth it, chuck another dollar on and stay somewhere more comfortable.
