Stayed in the Mexico City Hostel Suites across from the original hostel in a double ensuite room. Room was spacious, simple and clean with 2 double beds and a large bathroom. Very clean and quiet atmosphere with lovely decorations. More like a hotel than a hostel. Too bad there was no electricity in our room when we stayed or any...

We booked a private room, which turned out to be very small and quite noisy (the rain made a lot of noise). But the location couldn't be better; and the atmosphere was also very good. Good trip to Teotihuacan, too. Bathrooms were quite clean.

They only had one computer working when I stayed there, which we all wanted to use, so maybe if you go there, they will have more at some point in the future. They offer tours, but rarely have enough...
