Cheap with good location

It is a hostel, so don’t expect it to be fancy. The room was large, but there were no windows. The lack of soap at the handwash in the shared bathrooms gets annoying, along with the lacking waterpressure. The staff is very nice though and the complementery breakfast very interesting.


Below average

As this was by far not the cheapest hostel in downtown CDMX, I was expecting more. The bad windows mean you can hear everything from outside (until well past midnight) and it is pretty cold inside in December. The breakfast was very very basic. The towels and bedsheets did not look the cleanest ever. Some people at the front desk are helpful, some are not. All in all it is bearable, but I will stay elsewhere next time.


Good breakfast. Overall slightly below average hostel.

Negatives: 1. Bad WiFi. You can only use it in the lobby area and it isn’t very fast. 2. Rickety bed frames that shake a lot if you move around in them. 3. No natural “social hostel” vibe. Had to explain but let’s just say I wouldn’t want to stay there for more than a couple days. Average aspects: Bathrooms were average. I couldn’t get the shower to get warm but I didn’t try to hard either. Beds were nothing to talk about... “ok” The Design of the hostel isn’t very good, not particularly interesting or nice to look at. Good aspects: Staff was very friendly Free breakfast was nice and changes every day. Location is good if you want to be close to the city center.


Absolutely Flawless for the price.

The hostel staff's positivity and upbeat attitude made my 8 days here a glory. I was planning on changing if it wasnt good but I didnt have any issue and stayed for the full booking.. You would think hostels would be so busy and packed. I believe most of the travelers are turned away from hostels because certain areas dont attract foreigners due to negative reviews and google reviews of the areas or establishments. There is literally police on every corner I never felt in danger at all in my 8 days. . The Media has portrayed Centro Historio district as a war zone. It is not even close to that. Use common sense and stay inside after 10pm but I went out a couple nights 3 blocks down to Maduro street for clubs. Lots of people out and about. The day time is so packed. It felt more dangerous when I was in New York in Harlem. The beds were clean and fine. Typical hostel bed. There wasnt to many guests which was perfect for me. I wanted to be social but at the same time save money and get a good nights sleep. They had a pool table on the middle floor. That was my place to hangout. The beers are $0.80usd per beer in the hostel so i mean leaving the hostel to pick up is not needed (they dont allow outside alcohol) unless they run out. The breakfast is clean and basic. There was eggs and quesidillas sometimes. This hostel is actually a huge tour company. All the tours are priced very well . Very cheap. so you get to the hostel and the Amigo Tour bus Charter picks you up right there every morning. Convenient. if you stay at other hostels. they dont have tour companies in house This is one of the major companies in Mexico city for tours. The wifi was good in the common areas. Room dependent the connection is weak. (my room was a bit weak) It was at the end of the hall.. Thanks to Ricardo front desk for the tips and tricks around town. Thanks to Marco for taking us out one night to a restaurant and to show us the club area. Thanks to Janet for letting us bring Hard Alcohol in and have a bar party in the downstairs lobby. It was epic on my last night. Thanks to the amigo tours boys Armando and ivan for pooling it up. The hostel is 10 minutes walk away from the subway. I took the subway from the airport. It can be a bit crowded. If you are a dude i dont see you having a issue . use common sense. Wear your backpack on front of on ground. Keep alert . If you are a woman . I would suggest to just take uber or taxi . In my 8 days there I realized that the subway was 80-90% men on average. There might be reasons for that I dont know. If you want to eat cheap and live on a budget . stay in this area. I was eating and drinking for $1 usd each item. tacos hamburgers burritos quesadillas enchilladas. everything . A good western burger cost me 6 dollars. usd. . This hostel is 10 minute walk from one of the main cathedral. double decker tour buses and major squares. Its right in downtown where the action is. 15 min walk from the biggest street market shopping area Languilla but dont walk too far into TEPITO(Dangerous area) . Thanks to all the friends I made on this trip to make it memorable. Neto Federico Costa rican girl isabel The spain boys. Colombian dude, Heber Max IVAN ARMANDO scottish lad. Until next time. This wont be my last Mexico City! The most colorful city i have seen in my life. Cheers all. Love you all !
