Wonderful Place to stay right in the Heart

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 26, 2013

I was not disappointed in staying at this 3 story Hostel right in the heart of the "Old" city. Wonderful staff to attend to my every need. The 12-bed dorm was nice and spacious with very large lockers to store your luggage and other items. A nice lounge with free computers and wi-fi. What I like is the breakfast which is free. Pretty basic with scrambled eggs (sometimes with green beans) in them. Fruit, yougurt, bread for toast, coffee, tea and juice. If you have laundry they will do it for you for about 50 Pesos per Kilo and have it back to you all nicely folded and everything.On the second level is the large TV lounge with couches to take a nap on if you don't want to go to your room or to watch TV or any of the movies you can get fro the front desk or to kick back and meet people. This was a really nice place because you could see people working (housekeeping) all day long. It was nice too because it was only two blocks from the "Square" about a 3 minute walk. ATM around the corner, 7-11 on the corner across the street and one block away is a little store that you can buy fruits and vegatables and other goodies cheaper than 7-11. This is a 3 story building and the bedrooms are on the 3rd floor so you have to walk up to your room. You learn very quickly like I did that I brought everything I thought that I would need during the day and then left it in my little bag for them to hold at the front desk. Restrooms on the main level so you don't have to climb those stairs. After you ring yourself in, you enter the main lobby that is long and narrow with a really nice fountain. Tastefully decorated with views to the top floor above you. Security comes on around 7pm and stays all night, which if comforting. Always someone at the front desk to answer questions. A large selection of "Travel Books" though most of them are in Spanish. Large selection of brochures if you think that you want to see or do something else. There are 6 colorful banners in the entrance that are "Tours" that you may want to invulve yourself in. The front dest can help you arrange them.

Unique Quality: Less than 2 minutes from the main Square. Lots of places to eat. Vendors everywhere and the prices are nice.

Directions: In the Heart of the Old City

Decent hostel with helpful staff

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 13, 2007

I stayed 4 nights at this hostel in November 2006. I asked for a private room, and I got a rooom with 4 beds on the 1st floor with lockers and a small balcony. Room was clean but not cleaned during my stay there. Hotel provides towels, decent breakfast, has internet, and of course gives you a chance to meet other travellers. Does not really have a common room, but it has a small TV area where people hang out.

Unique Quality: Staff is the hostel's quality number 1. Those girls were amazingly friendly and very helpful. All of them spoke english and made effort to answer all my questions.

Other than that, location is pretty good, close to Zocalo, but not the best. If I go to Mexico City again, I would stay closer to Alameda as this area is more lively at night.

Rate includes breakfast which is ok. Hotel provides internet at the price of US$1 per hour which is kind of an average for Mexico. Hostel is generally very clean but my room was not cleaned once while I was there.

Bad - exchange rate is only 10 pesos for a US$1 so money should be changes elsewhere.

I paid US$18 for a private room including breakfast and shared bath.

Directions: Close to Zocalo
