Liked: This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in, with a nice atmosphere, good social spaces, good cooked breakfast and very clean nice accommodation. The private double rooms are hotel standard. I stayed twice and took the dorm on my return and they were nice as well.

Disliked: It is a short walk to the Zocalo but nothing serious and there is plenty in the immediate area. You need to be conscious of the shower times in the shared accom but this isn't a big deal and is fair enough in a drought region.

Liked: I have stayed in quite a few hostels over the years, and this is definitely one of the best. The property itself is great- the rooftop terrace is beautiful, there are enough bathrooms/showers that I never had to wait or stand in line during my stay, and everything is always very clean, including the kitchen and bathrooms. The terrace also creates a great social atmosphere. The people who work here are great. They are very professional in terms of always being available to help and constantly maintaining the hostel, but are also very friendly and pleasant to be around. Couldn't recommend this hostel more highly.

Liked: Can't fault it! Great atmosphere with several social spaces including a lovely roof terrace. The included breakfast was good and the kitchen was well equipped. It's a short but pleasant walk from the town centre. The staff were really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The tours on offer were pretty good value and great if you want to visit out of the way places like hierve el agua but don't have much time.

Liked: This place is very well run. The party stops at 11. The breakfast is good. Good internet. Kitchen good. Rooms as quiet as they ever are in a hostel. Lots of small things make it obvious the people who run it know what guests want, like electric plug adaptors, hot sink water for shaving sturdy beds that don't giggle the bunkmate. The list goes on.

Disliked: Hot water from 8-10 AM and 8-10 PM, though you can ask id you want other times
