The location is good, it's close to a lot of attractions such as Temple Mayor and the Zocalo. In terms of transportation, it's closest to the Zocalo metro station and a 2 minute walk from the Metrobus.
It was very clean, the common rooms were big and comfy, the staff were super friendly and helpful. Our bus arrived in Mexico City at 8AM and check-in was supposed to be at 2PM but they were generous enough to give us our rooms early.
The only thing was that it was hard to find, no taxi driver seems to know where it is. You're better off taking the metro there and then try to find your way. Also wifi didn't work everywhere, I had to go to the common area to get wifi. We were tipped off by the "receptionist" that the showers in the big bathroom didn't have hot water, which was fine since our room was closest to the smaller washroom anyway.
Overall it was a very luxurious hostel stay.
