Hostal Cuija Coyoacan
Reviewed 12 July 2017

This was a very clean and secure hostel outside the center of Mexico City. Coyoacan is pretty quiet so if you're looking to relax or are a longer-term traveler, this may be the place for you. If you're looking for a party hostel or somewhere to meet people, this may not be the place for you. The breakfast was pretty good and there's a cool rooftop terrace where you can relax.

Room Tip: The 2-bed room in the back is AMAZING. Wall-sized windows face the back.

I was told it was the cleanest in the world by a seasoned traveler I met at breakfast. I hadn't ever stayed at a hostel before, so before her assessment, I only knew for sure the entire place was cleaner than our house has ever been since our kids made it to adolescence, lol.

I had a private room & it was everything I needed for a week's vacation -- hot shower + comfortable bed The property is a 15-min walk to the Coyoacan Metro stop, several parks, the covered market, a supermarket, a small mall & many bakeries (one quite large), & the Frida Kahlo museum. The taxi fare from the airport is ~mx$250.

Bring your earplugs bc neighborhood dogs & cats all night (which is just Mexico). Bring warm clothes for sleeping (no central heating in Mexico City) & maybe a book light.

The breakfast is a delicious business, the coffee is so good, the staff is sweet and kind and patient. The actual property is secure. What's the catch? You had better speak Spanish. I do, so I will tell you: I hated to leave and I can not wait to go back.

Room Tip: make sure to email the property ahead of time to avoid check-in confusion (come ready to show the em...

Beautiful hostel hidden in coyacan Mexico City. Visited this hostel with my boyfriend to celebrate New Years and we were amazed by it's picturesque aura with paintings from Frida Kahlo, who's house can be visited only a few blocks away. The owners are friendly and helpful, the breakfast served is Mexican style and tastes wonderful! Well worth a visit, one of the best hostels I've visited!

The Hostal is pretty cool, has nice staff (they only speak spanish) and it´s clean! They have really cool terraces, to chill out and have a beer. The area is safe and super nice!
One bad thing is, that the rooms are pretty small....it´s not quite clear where to store your stuff.

But overall its a really good Hostal and I can highly recommend to stay here!
