Good option in the historical centre
Our first impression of the hotel wasn't great - we arrived late evenig and the lady who did our check in showed us our room and headed back downstairs. It wasn't a good intro, we had no idea where the toilet and kitchen were, and we didn't manage to ask anything about the local area. The other reception staff were all amazing and very informative about what to do in the area. The location is a particular advantage because it's on a pedestrian street in the historical centre and there's so much to do more or less on your doorstep. Overall we had a good stay, the bed was comfy and our room was way bigger than the photos. The only things I'd suggest are training all of the reception staff if it hasn't been done already, and leaving some basics such as salt in the kitchen (which only has a toaster and sink). The staff were also amazing in allowing us to store our bags use the bathroom after check out.

Great location, basic amenities
Great location, two blocks from the main zocalo. The place is very clean. The services are very basic. The beds are uncomfortable and the wooden doors can be loud with people coming and going. It’s a good option for a hostel.

This is a lovely friendly quiet hostel well placed in the historic quarter for sightseeing. Lovely courtyard and quiet comfortable room. The only downside of staying here in winter is that although blankets are provided the rooms are not heated and cold. Bring a sleeping bag.
