One night in Mexico City
A little hard to find and directions from airport to hostel by metro could have been clearer but all in all a quaint place. Pretty comfy. They let us check in early which was SO appreciated after a red-eye flight!!

Good location and price. Bed was hard for our tastes while I'm sure others would appreciate the firmness.

Happy we stayed here
The hotel is basic but comfortable Old which is part of its charm but warn in some ways The central garden is cared for and we were even lucky enough to spot a hummingbird visit at breakfast The location is perfect for accessing the historic centre of town and cheap for its location The security is good and it feels like a haven

I really liked they are not bunk bed so there is no climbing up and down. The rooms have high ceiling and feels roomy.

Fair 4.0
- One morning maintenance started repairing something on the property at ***8:15 AM***, with extremely loud hammering that lasted for an hour. No warning was given by management about this maintenance work. - There's a water filtering machine but the property only wheels it out around breakfast time and then takes it away. Very annoying (but FYI, fill up your water bottles during this time). - As someone else pointed out, the doors to the rooms, even the private rooms, have large windows in them that are covered by see-through drapes. So you can literally see in everyone's [private] room, which doesn't feel very uhhh private. - The breakfast was: bread, jam, orange juice, coffee, and bananas. Nothing more. - Wasn't a particularly social hostel, at least when I was there. More of a homebase for seeing tourist sights around the area. - Overall, decent affordable spot in good area, especially if they fix the see-through window situation with the private rooms. Not a party hostel by any means.

Cozy home near the center of DF!
This is a great place to stay if you're on a budget and we were lucky enough to get an upgraded room with two beds instead of one. Lots of space for two people and beautiful courtyard + common room.
