This guest house is in a great location, it's in a quiet and safe area, but easily walkable to the zocalo, great restaurants and bars. The staff are all super friendly and helpful, particular Thomas. He even helped me load my Telcel sim since I didn't speak a lot of spanish. The staff will help you book tours as well to all the major sites in the area. The rooms are simple, but what you would expect for the price. We had a room with a private bathroom on the rooftop and our only issues was that we had a slightly older bathroom and sometimes the water stopped working and our toilet broke a few times in the week due to a faulty handle/flusher. The room would get quite hot as well as we got a lot of sun during the day. The staff were super apologetic though and fixed it whenever it was an issue. Breakfasts were included for us and they were simple, but delicious, and included lots of bread, fruit, juice and as much coffee as you need.
