Finding an affordable, well located and safe place to stay in Mexico City when booking from abroad can result really challenging. I found Ivan's list and thought i should give it a try. It was the best thing i could have done! The street where the apartment is located feels like a little colonial town, but if you just walk a few steps, you'll find everything a big city can offer: restaurants, coffe shops, cultural centers, museums, markets, the main plaza of Coyoacan, etc.
Furthermore, as a woman travelling on my own, it was very important for me that the location I was staying allowed me to move all around the city at any point of the day, without safety concerns. Ivan gave me suggestions on how to move around, how to best administer my time, as well about the places I could not miss. He truly loves his hometown and is able to convey that love and knowledge to his guests. I totally recommend staying at his place!
