Liked: The location next to the park was nice, and it was only a short walk into the centre. This meant is was quiet

Disliked: The dorms were a level above the toilets/showers, which was quite inconvenient and meant having to walk in front of people who were watching TV/ on the computers in a towel. It was just a hassle

Liked: Beautiful Roof'-top Terrace with kitchen, internet and televisions with movies available, comfy beds, lockers, beautiful location opposite a park and a nice walk to the Zocalo. Really great hostel - would definitely reccommend.

Disliked: Seemed very quiet even though it was quite full - not such a great place to meet people.

Liked: I liked it wasn't right in the middle of the zocalo, and was across the street from a park. Considering me and my bf were sick at the time, it was a great place to hang out - internet, movies, terrace, etc. I think to make it an even BETTER hostel, they could arrange special events, like a special Mexican dinner, once in awhile. Staff friendly, location good (very close to bus station), clean room. Oh, and the best part was that we came on the overnight bus at 9AM and even though their policy is check in at 2pm, they got us a room no problem!

Disliked: Not much, really. Didn't get a chance to eat the breakfast but I heard it wasn't much, at least for one with stomach issues (beans and tortillas or something?).

Liked: Very clean, great location, most of the staff very friendly and helpful. Hot, powerful showers, lovely roof terrace. Good breakfasts.

Disliked: Felt more like a hotel than a hostel. for me it wasn't great to meet people. Wi fi kept disconnecting and you'd have to re-type the password in (about 8 times in half an hour). This hostel would be ideal for people who have been travelling a long time and want some creature comforts. All in all I liked the hostel.

Liked: The best thing is the location it is walking distance to the bus station, and walking distance to the centre of town. The facilities are good with fast internet and a nice outdoor terrace and kitchen.

Disliked: No real atmosphere in the evenings for drinking & eating you really need to go into town.

Liked: For me it was one of the nicest Hostels in Mexico and i stayed 2 times in it! It's very clean, friendly and has a nice atmosphere. It's near a nice Parc, with a market at friday and the way to the Zocalo is although nice and it's just 10 minutes away. I would stay again.

Liked: This hostel is a model for all others: immaculately clean; cooked breakfast included; bar (but with no issues about bringing your own beer and wine onto the premises and drinking them on the floral roof-top terrace); towel included to use in the tiled showers and bathrooms where there is unlimited hot water; your bed made for you; free computer use and wi-fi connection; excellent source of local information and transportation to your next destination; television area; spotlessly clean kitchen on the terrace and all set in one of Mexico's most beautiful cities. Stay and enjoy- as a backpacker it's the closest you'll get to hotel living.

Disliked: Nothing - It's all good
