“Nice location, great comfort!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

The hostel is very well located in the Historical Center. Apart from being close to many attractions, the quality is very high. The rooms are spacious, everything new, the bathroom is clean and modern and they have a bar on the roof which is perfect environment.

What an experience, the staff were extremely helpful 110% of the time. It was extremely clean, in outstanding order, secure, pristine, and beautifully built.

The bar was very fun, and the staff were extremely fun and extroverted. Unlike most hostels, namely Hostel Amigo, the staff were friendly from start to finish.

It is a very affordable hostel and is located in the amazing historic centre of the city. I would like to thank the staff again for their friendly atmosphere and great hostel! I highly recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to have a complete experience in a hostel :)

Large 3 story interior with central open space and rooftop bar. Lots of music and kitchen smoke rise up from the lower level There is no quiet place in the hostel. Great place if you want to party. If you want to sleep bring earplugs and be prepared for the hostal to admit 2:30 am drunks. intermittent internet and computers. showers warm, not hot. otherwise nice clean facilities, friendly folks, better than other options I found in Mexico. great location in the centro, close to metro, safe et cetera

Room Tip: possibly 3rd floor less noise, except mezzanine which has no door

Unfortunately, I need to share my very poor experience with Hostal Regina. Despite my booking via booking.com I found on arrival in the evening that my room was given to someone else without even making an effort to check with me if I were coming. Reason provided: Hostal policy, although I pointed out there is nothing in the conditions that I need to inform about the time of my arrival. They were clearly to blame but did not even bother to apologise. They found a replacement accomodation but not in the downtown area in a hostel with worse rating and conditions.

We stayed in a private room for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay here. The location is golden with lots of bars and restaurants around the area. The bathroom was across from our room and it always had hot water. Rooms were clean but no daily housekeeping, which we didn't mind for our short stay. If you are a light sleeper, however, beware as the noise is coming in from the street but we were so tired by the end of our stay that we just passed out. For the price, you cannot beat it and the staff we're friendly, and a good place to meet other travelers.

We stayed in the "family room" (2 king size beds, 2 ensuites and a mezzanine), which was lovely, but not typical of the dorm experience.

The room was very comfortable, with a micro balcony overlooking the pedestrianised Regina St. Breakfast was nice for a bread + coffee hostel breakfast: a pastry and cinnamon brewed coffee from the cafe downstairs.

The vibe of the hostel was nice, though quiet (we arrived Xmas day). The location is central and a short walk to the Zocalo. Street noise wasn't a problem for us, as we weren't overlooking 5 de Febrero, the busy street.

There is a nice kitchen, though no drinking water provided - which should be a given for any accommodation in mexico. Also, the security door on the ground level could definitely do with upgrading. There seems to be an occasional security guard on duty late at night in the absence of a stronger door.

The roof bar is nice and finished, though not operating during our Xmas stay.

Would definitely stay here again.

Overall, I thought hostel regina was good. Was relatively clean, and staff were nice to deal with. A lot of travellers on trip advisor seem to complain about the noise. I did not find this to be a problem, also the hostel is in the middle of centro historico, so of course there is going to be some noise. The dorms were very large, but thought this was cool, lots of people to meet. Breakfast was free, although small. Location was great.

The areas where I thought they could improve was the wireless (it really only worked down in the foyer), there was no rooftop bar, although I understand this was being renovated at the time, security was ok, not a priority though, and there was a lack of help for your ongoing travels. A lot of travellers use Mex City as their strating point for Mex and Central America. It would have been good if Hostel Regina offered help to travellers for booking buses, tours etc. We did this all through Hostel Amigos, which also looks to be a good hostel.
