Liked: The terrace and the dorm lockers are nice. And that's it, the rest of it is really disappointing.

Disliked: It is a loud, belligerent party hostel with bare minimum cleaning service. The kitchen is beyond disgusting. The beds are the cheapest, flimsiest bunks they could find - they creak and sway if you so much as blink. Very narrow, and no top rail for safety, either. Windows do not block out sound from staff radio nor staff/customer's constant screaming. You must wear a paper ID bracelet to enter- and wear it your entire stay. Incredible rude staff - one Aussie making fun of an elderly customer behind her back and in front of myself and 3 other guests, and another staff member was incredibly rude to me upon check out. The terrace is nice - too bad the rest is horrible.

Liked: great hostel to meet people. Breakfast is good and location is perfect.

Disliked: Wifi is dodgy but not a big issue as much to see around townStaff could be more knowledgable about what's happening in the zocalo and the general areaRooms facing the zocalo can be noisy if something is on for the weekend

Liked: It's near the zocalo

Disliked: The area is dangerous I was robbed outside the property, within one block of the hostel the area turns dangerous. There's so much security for a reason.

Liked: Great hostel, especially if you are a solo traveller. The roof terrace is gorgeous and a great place to meet people.

Disliked: The bathrooms are a little dated and the one in our room lacked ventilation so the celing was a little mouldy and smelky

The property's response is

Hey!

Thanks for your comment. We are sorry about the problem with the room. We just changed reservation system and these sort of things shouldn't happen anymore.
About the internet, yes.. that's a cronic problem we and all other buildings around the area have. It has to do with the provider but we are saving up for fiber optic so we hope that helps.
We are always trying to improve. Thanks

Liked: Rooftop terrace is lovely. Breakfast was great. Good location.

Disliked: Probably the noisiest hostel I have ever stayed at. Due to the design, you will likely not be able to sleep before 12 or after 8am. Slamming doors, voices, footsteps. Even when there isn't a party on...
