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.

Disliked: nothing...

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

Liked: The staff are very friendly and helpful. They do not speak english so we communicated a lot using google translate. There is free internet and free unlimited drinking water. Breakfast is good and varied. Lots of traditional dishes. It is only a 5 min walk to the town centre and just round the corner from the 1st class bus station. Excellent.
