This is one of the cheapest hostels I could find in Mexico DF so of course the rooms are basic. Ignore the fact that some of the ceilings have peeling plaster & the bedding is rather bobbly due to useage & washing, this place is a little gem. The hostel is very clean, there’s a pleasant courtyard. The beds are very comfy, I arrived with lumbago (bad back) and the beds were hard enough to support my back properly. Normally we stay close to the lively, bustly, noisy Zocalo area so at first it felt strange to be in a quiet, residential part of town but this definitely had its positive points, it was so quiet that I have never slept so well in a hostel. The area is quite safe . There are cafes, restaurants, bars and shops (even a Liverpool department store) a short walk away. The nearest tube station is quite a walk but the taxis that Aaron (the host) uses are not expensive. Also it’s a short taxi ride to Condesa (better than Zona Rosa now) for an evening out. The host, adorable Aaron, offers a 5 star service and definitely makes this hostel the gem that it is. He will offer help and advice way beyond your expectations. We had 2 suitcases that didn’t arrive & he spent time calling the Air France & their delivery company to try to trace our bags, even after we left he called us at our next location to check that we had been reunited with our bags! He made us feel so at home that I really felt sad leaving after 2 nights there. We even returned at the end of our trip to leave him a thank-you present but he wasn’t in (I hope his neighbour gave it to him). (Our final night in DF was spent at a hostel near the Zocolo and it was noisy, smelly & more expensive.) We’ll definitely go back to stay with Aaron!
can be and guests are quiet (I have never slept so well in a hostel)
