We stayed here for 4 nights, 3 girls and it was perfect. Staff were really friendly upon check in and helped us find where we needed to meet out other friend. Great location for exploring as its really close to everything and there's a McDonald's within walking distance. Lots of cultural things not too far away as well. I forget...

Great Location, good price (although it went up while I was there). Breakfast is good, clean (although they clean every bathroom at the same time which if that's when you want to take a shower, you can wait a while). Internet is ok. Not much of an atmosphere if you like that sort of thing. All round it was good.

Location: Excellent, right next to the Zocalo Cleanliness: Pretty clean Helpfulness: Fairly helpful but I did have some issues. I booked a couple tours through them which did not go to plan at all. First, I booked & paid to go to Lucho Libre, got ready & came down early for the receptionist to tell me it had been cancelled....

I was not impressed with this hostel at all. I don't know if maybe Philly and NY hostels have spoiled me but the service and quality was subpar. The first night I was there the women's bathroom ran out of toilet paper and paper towels. The wifi worked periodically. Our second night there the water stopped working at night and...

Be sure to get a reference number when making your booking, or they may charge you extra to "find" your reservation. Also be aware that many of the rooms do not have windows. Apart from that, this large hostel is clean, efficient and very conveniently located close to the Zocalo.

Can't do much better given its so centrally located. Really nice people at the original location, and breakfast is a plus. The newer location across the street is colder (people and temperature) and dorms are super loud, mostly because the lockers are needlessly noisy to open and close.

Hubby and I spent 3 nights at the Mexico City Hostel (number 11 - they have 2 buildings in the same street) and had a very nice stay. We booked a private double with ensuite (600 pesos with breakfast) which was spacious & very clean. The hostel is well located (not even 5min walk to the Zocalo) and very safe....

We stayed several times at Mexico City Suites at #11, which is very centrally located, and convenient. The rooms are large and have good bathrooms and hot water. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. There is a kitchen you can use which is fine, and a comfy room to watch TV and use computers. Breakfast is ok, nothing...

We highly recommend the Mexico City Hostel Suites (#11 Brasil). We had a room with an ensuite bathroom and two double beds. It was a very comfortable place to call home for six nights. The central location made it easy to access many of the historic sites by walking. The breakfast served each day had variety and was very good....
