Disliked: Wifi could do with some improvements- couldn't get it to work in the forms (level 2) and it broke completely during my stay but that's life!

Liked: Central location, standard hostel, nothing lacking.

Disliked: When I arrived I was given a key to a 4 bed dorm room and told it was on the second floor. When I found the room (in a sea of rooms), all the beds were occupied. I specifically requested the 4 bed dorm and paid a higher price to avoid the 8 and 10 bed dorms. The gentleman at the front desk said he would put me in an 8 bed dorm with only 2 other people and he would not put more people in the room. There were in fact 5 other people in the dorm. I paid a higher price and was not reimbursed, nor did the gentleman seem to care much about customer service or the disorganization of the hostel.

Liked: The bar and bar staff are second-to-none. Such a fun place! I even extended my stay while here. The lock to the room was a bit dodgy and the door to my dorm was always left open. Just make sure you have a padlock for the lockers. Someone needed to fill up the toilet paper dispensers a bit more, as there was nine on a few occasions! Other than that, couldn't really fault the place!

Disliked: See above!

Liked: The cleanliness was awesome. Everytime I went to the bathroom the woman was cleaning it. The breakfast ist really great and the rooms are so big. The walls are all printed so nice and the bar is so cheap. The staff is very friendly and they offer some great tours.

Disliked: It was incredible loud every night. Especially one night some people went out to a party and when they come back they scream and knock on other doors and even throw some glasses at other doors. It kept be so loud for almost one hour without anybody from the hostel was doing something.

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff, lots of character throughout the hostel, good location in the historical district, can book bus tickets at the little travel office in the hostel, large rooms, good cleanliness, day tours available in english and spanish (the pyramid tour was great!)

Disliked: the rooms have small open slots above the doors which allows a lot of noise to enter the room - not only from neighboring rooms and the hallway, but also form the floors below. could be difficult to sleep if you go to bed early. breakfast is very average, but free!

Liked: Central location, close to bus routes and metro stations. Hot water and good showers. Decent breakfast.

Disliked: No free maps, not even photocopies. Staff not overly friendly. Most of the lockers in the dorm were broken and the itself had a horrible musty smell, despite being clean.

Liked: location is very good, reasonable clean, staff friendly. Good value for money, although somehow the whole place seems to be a bit old/ maybe almost a little bit unattended. But maybe that's only the first impression just arriving from Germany! ;) The breakfast buffet was changing every day so you didn't eat the same every day which was good. All you can eat breakfast with one warm dish (1. day: scrambled eggs, 2. day: mexican bean dish, 3. day: ham & cheese quesadilla), bread (very dry!) and jam, cereals and milk, tea, coffee and fresh friuts and kind of a dessert (jelly). I booked a ofrfered tour to Teotihuacán which I liked a lot!

Disliked: nothing really.

Liked: Nice place, clean, staff was helpful (except for one of the girls at the reception who refused to provide recommendations for nearby restaurants to a starving guest). Breafast was THE best! Plentiful, lovely fruit, nice pancakes, and you have to do your own dishes which means you do your bit of shared labour :) Muchas gracias. Muy buen hostal. Muy muy recomendado!

Liked: The staff are really friendly and helpfull and the breakfast isnt the same every morning which is cool. Hostel amigo is close to everything and the metro which is really easy to use. I have met really cool people here that have made my stay in mexico city! some in the hostel and some from outside that have joined on one of the hostel tours. I have been shown some really awsome places here to eat to drink to dance. fun times.

Disliked: I dont like the bunk beds they arent sturdy enough, every time you or the person on the other bed moves the whole bed moves with you. The acoustics arent great you can hear lots of echos of people talking and when the door shuts from another room you can hear it down the hall. It would also be nice if the kitchen was catered more for people to cook their own food aswell.
