“Very nice new hostel, great location in Condesa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012

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 neighborhood).

The location is perfect - walking distance to all of Condesa & Roma, Paseo de la Reforma, Zona Rosa, Chapultepec Park, and Parque Mexico. There is very easy metro access to Coyoacan, the Centro, and airport, and easy Metrobus (bus rapid transit) access to San Angel. The few extra pesos per night compared to most DF hostels more than make up for not having to stay in the tourist nightmares of the Centro or Zona Rosa (my opinion, obviously).

Bathrooms & rooms cleaned very well daily. Laundry on site (pay at the front desk). Combination lockers in each room. Nice common area on the top floor with computers, Wifi, lounge areas, TV, patio. There's a 7-11 a block away for water, beer, and snacks, plus restaurants, shops, and bars all over nearby.

It's a bit hard to find the first time, even with the crazy colorful lights at night - bring good directions and a map, especially if you're coming on the Metro.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

A freind and I stayed here in early June. Had been open only 5 months. We were only two in a room for 4 and it cost each of us $22 a night. Very modern and interesting and clean. On top floor there are computers to use and where you fix your breakfast. Good location and within walking ditance of parks and restaurants with a restaurant next door.

Room Tip: They have a website with photos.
