Hostel Amigo was not as good as I had expected. We were told our room number on the night we arrived and had to find our own way around the hostel. On the website it looks as though there are lots of areas to sit and chat with other tourists when infact the bar area is quite small & there...

Traveling alone took a large single, quite a good deal - clean room, reasonably quiet (I'm a light sleeper - so high praise indeed), and the cleaning staff are remarkably diligent. Good location - easy jumping off point for most of the main sites, the staff are quite friendly and very helpful. Small bar downstairs, nice for a few drinks...

First of all 195 pesos for mexico is super expensive, some in the US are tht price! What you get is dorms without windows, very stuffy, mosquitoes. However the staff is nice and bfast not bad! Good but worth 120 IMO.

The place is clean and the room I had was also clean. Hostel amigo is conveniently located in Mexico City centre and is easy to walk to main attractions such as Museo de Bellas Artes or el Zocalo, or Madero pedestrian crossing. I arrived late at night so I had to take a cab from the airport, but they have...

Good location and very comfy beds (probably best beds in a dorm room I've had). Good breakfast. Maybe I was there at a quiet time but for a social hostel there was no one around, bar was empty and atmosphere was lacking. Would still give it another shot though.

Although the sleep quality may not have been so great, I can hardly blame the hostel itself for this! Aside from that it is hard to fault such friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Aida - one of the most helpful people anywhere (one of the staff members) was most helpful, finding a 3 person dorm (which was unoccupied) for...

This hostel is probably the cleanest I've ever stayed in. The staff was very helpful and the private room we rented was clean and comfortable. The guests were primarily young international travelers and were polite and mostly quiet. The location is great with easy walking to zocalo, metro, and good shopping and restaurants.
