This was the cleanest hostel I have EVER stayed in. It rivaled many hotels! It was also empty. I stayed for 7 nights and for 4 out of those 7, I was the only one in the 4 bed dorm I was in. Not a great hostel to meet people, but great to have a quiet stay and catch up...

I've travelled around the world since I was 22 and I've stayed in 100s, maybe 1000s of hostels. Honestly this in the top 3 worst hostels ever. The only positive thing I can say about it is that it is super clean but that's not hard when there are only 2 guests each night. It's a ghost hostel, there are...

I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed everything while I was there. I was supposed to share a room with 8 more people but I had it all to myself - no one else stayed there, probably because it wasn't high season. If you want to go to la Condesa, you just have to walk a few blocks to...

Housekeeping staff keeps rooms and bathrooms spotless. 4. Individual small reading light and an outlet at the head of each bed. 5. Individual wifi router for each room. Neutral: 1. It's a...

This hostel is nice enough. Everything is very clean and well-kept but the ambiance just isn't there. I was there in mid-march and the hostel was an absolute ghost town. I went to another hostel 2 days later and it was much more active. No one was here aside from an Australian student I met who confirmed that before I...

La Buena vida! This is a chill hostel located in Condesa. The Patriotismo subway stop is just a nice 5 minute walk away, and at night there are plenty of cool restaurants and bars nearby. This isn't a party hostel, but there are still opportunity's to make friends. I met some really great people there! Also the staff are extremely...

I stayed at Hostal La Buena Vida for a couple of nights during easter 2013 at the end of my trip to Mexico. The hostel was nice in itself. The entire building is very artsy and fancy. Also, it is cleaned every day leaving it absolutely spotless. Adding to it, I felt very safe in the hostel. However, the hostel...

I would recommend this one highly for the following reasons: First the location is the best, the neighbourhood of La Condesa is the place to be in terms of food, ambiance, nightlife and you have a very close access to the metro in order to move within the city. The hostel is sparkling clean, the cleaning service is at the...

Highly recommended - very friendly people, clean, comfortable, safe, and price isn't bad (~ $USD 20-24/night). There are mixed and female-only dorms. It was nearly empty when I was there in June 2012, probably because it's still nearly new, a little more expensive than older hostels, and Condesa isn't where most tourists flock towards (but is my favorite Mexico City...
