Liked: Free internet includes actual PCs, not just WiFi. Super-central, cheap.

Disliked: Well, the male toilets could do with some fixing... yellow "liquid" standing pretty full and impossible to flush properly.

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.

Liked: We booked the double bedroom with the ensuite as we were travelling on our honeymoon. It was a nice room with a good bed and good clean bathrooms. The front desk were very helpful and the day tours we did we prey reasonably priced. There is also a small travel agent on site which was good for getting advise on trips and where else to travel. We really enjoyed our stay.

Disliked: Nicola left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast is tasty and changes each day. Place is really clean and good locations for exploring the historical center.

Disliked: There are posters everywhere advertising the tours on offer and the staff also promote them a lot – is a bit of an atmosphere killer.

Liked: Great location and easy walking distance to main sites in the city. Also close to the metro to travel further. Everywhere was really clean and there's a good communal area to meet other travellers. Compared to other places I have stayed this place was amazing value for money.

Disliked: The tours are really overpriced. You can easily get the metro to see the mexican wrestling as it's only 5 mins away and you can also get to the pyramids for less than half the price they charge.

Liked: Friendly, helpful staff and party atmosphere in the lounge area. Good tour offer. WiFi is good. Breakfast buffet was alright with one type of fruit and one type of hot item (e.g. pankcakes).

Disliked: The lighting and interior design. Rooms without windows but basically open towards the hallways through openings in the walls, thus fairly loud.

Liked: The staff will make sure that you enter Mexico's life and culture as soon as you arrive. Lot of activities and tours with the hostel and good value for the money. Good location in the historical center, clean and secure. Computers with internet access. The place is lively in the evening but quiet at night. What more would you expect?
