“Fantastic owner, more like a Bed n Breakfast”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Like all the other reviews state, the owner, Alfonso, is fantastic. Really helpful without being too overbearing. He offered to show us various rooms, helped us with suggestions on where to go and what to see, didnt charge us for the 1st night when we arrived a day late and didnt get mad when we lost our room key in a taxi. Basically him and his wife are the perfect hosts (while we were probably not-so-perfect guests..sorry Alfonso). The rooms are basic but spacious and have a tv and fridge and wifi. Bathrooms are big and the shower is hot. It's a huge converted house so don't expect fancy hotels rooms. On that same note, it's not the most ideal setup to meet other travellers as there is not the greatest amount of common area. That being said, it's in a safe, quiet area really close to street food vendors, shops and the metro station - its totally walkable if you take the metro direct from the airport. It's only 2-3 stops from the centre of Mexico City.

Anys Hostal is a great place to stay. It is an old beautiful converted house in La Roma/Cuauhtemoc area. It is way more like a bed and breakfast than a hostel, with private rooms and free breakfast and cafe in the morning. The owner, Alfonso, is gregarious and accommodating. It is clean, reasonably priced, and in a nice area within walking distance of parks, restaurants, transit, and street tacos. There's Wifi in the cafe in the front but it didn't reach our room. Recommended.

Alfonso is a great and knowledgeable host. He also runs a cafe where delicious breakfast is served. We went off menu which was not a problem. Alfonso even offered to pick up my laundry at the next door laundromat. Our room was huge and the place has more the feel of a bed and breakfast. All rooms are different and spacious. Bottles of water are included, free wifi and fridge in room. Anys is in a great location, well connected on the metro and close to restaurants and bars. It's also close to chapultepec park -great for those morning runs. I highly recommend this place.

Both hostal and staff are nice, friendly, and accommodating.

However, do NOT, under any circumstances, trust Alfonso's restaurant recommendations. The first time, he pointed us to a mediocre pozole restaurant. We decided to give him a second chance by asking him for something specific: chilaquiles. He directed us to Sanborns, which is the equivalent of Denny's in the States. Terrible!

You're better off finding food just taking a random walk in Mexico City,

We rented most all of Anys Hostal for a group of 17 going to a family wedding. Everything that has been said about Alfonso is not enough. It was fun to organize rooms, breakfasts, lunches, transportation, and sightseeing with Alfonso. The place is lovely, clean, and the cafe is a great place to eat and socialize. The location is pleasant and close to the subway and restaurants in Zona Rosa. When I return to Mexico City, I consider Anys Hostal, my home!

I have stayed twice now in the past 6 months and trust me, I am not a hostel type person. My daughter highly recommended this hostel and this charming house is more like a Bed and Breakfast, and Alfonso, the host, is absolutely wonderful! He is friendly, helpful, and he knows everything....he is the perfect host!!! And...great location, super clean, well maintained!

Room Tip: I prefer the inside rooms of the house!

My partner and I were pretty nervous about travelling to Mexico City. Our host at Anys soon made us relax with a warm welcome, a huge room (3 single beds) and a good shower. The location was great, short walk to shops and restaurants as well as lots of the tourist attractions. We used the subway to get Downtown and to Coyacan. They were fantastic in helping us plan our time, book tours for us and organise a airport transport. I would definitely recommend this spot for the budget traveller.
