  • 8.0.Very good

    After previously staying at Amigo Suites, just around the corner (which I gave a good review for). This one was also a pleasure to stay at. The showers/toilet facilities were perfect. The room, the beds and overall cleanliness of the place aswell as the staff I give 5/5... If I decide to return to these hostels again, I would definately return to Amigo Suites around the corner because of the rooftop. Although failing that, I would be happy staying in this one too!

  • 8.0.Very good

    It was close to main city attractions. The room and bathrooms were cleaned everyday. Staff was very friendly. The only negative aspect was that WIFI was only available up to the second floor. I was on the third floor and the signal was very weak.

    Good for the value but dodgy guests

    My stay was good overall. The breakfast was great for the price but some of the guests at the hostel seemed a bit dodgy. The cleanliness isn't perfect but location is pretty good. Service was good as well

    Budget friendly

    I stayed here for a week and a half. I would do so again if I were traveling on a strict budget, or only for a night or two. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Their English was good, but not fluent. The hostel is very bare-bones. The beds are hard mat cots on bunk beds. I had to walk up two floors to my room, no elevator. The breakfast is very simple but good. The cook (who doesn't speak English) makes a hot Mexican dish to go with the cold cereal, yogurt, jello, etc. every morning. I couldn't get the wifi from my room, but I did have the foresight to take the bed beside the only power outlet in the room. They don't allow outside alcohol into the hotel, but you can buy bottles of beer from them at more or less the going price (35$.) They also have water and soda at reasonable prices. It's in the Centro Historico, the area isn't exactly glamorous, but it felt reasonably safe. Like I said, I would go again if back in Mexico City, which is an absolute must-visit at least once in your life!

    Staff was very nice, place was clean. I booked a shuttle with Amigo tours from the airport to the hostel as I arrived in the middle of the night. Late check-in has been fast and easy!

    This hotel has great location! Walking distance to Zocalo and museums, restaurants, pubs, shops. Friendly staff, good price, breakfast included although could be better. Rooms are clean and nice, no windows but ceiling fan. Lockers in the room. Beds comfortable. There’s Amigo tours on site when you can book your day trips around!

    Es un lugar cerca del centro de la ciudad, se presta para acceder a otros destinos, en general hay "buena" vibra! Estar en este lugar siempre es un privilegio!

  • 2.0.Poor

    Yo llegue a la 1pm, y me comentaron que no podrian darme litera porque era a partir de las 3 pm, les dije que no habia problema, que solo me permitieran dejar mi maleta que yo saldria y regresaria en la noche, cuando regreso me dicen que no hay lugar para mi (yo reserve litera en dormitorio femenino), y que me ofrecerian una en dormitorio mixto, cosa que no acepte. despues de esperar casi una hora me dieron una habitacion para mi sola, pero que la desocupara al dia siguiente para darme la reservacion que yo habia hecho. desocupe temprano y al regresar por la noche fue la misma situacion, no habia litera para mi en dormitorio femenino, solo me darian en dormitorio mixto, segui sin aceptar pero ya no habia habitaciones privadas, quitaron a una chica (la mandaron al dormitorio mixto) y a mi me dieron la litera. todo esto alegan los empleados a que fue un error de sistema, pero otros me dicen que porque no hice mi check in , (cosa que si hice y muy temprano 1pm),

  • 4.0.Fair

    Las sábanas, almohadas e instalaciones están descuidadas y sin mantenimiento. La habitación tenía el techo con agujeros y las sábanas manchadas. Las fotos hacen tener expectativas muy altas para lo que en realidad es.
