It was a great experience as you are at the heart of the city center. The people are nice, the place has plenty of interesting people to meet and they welcome you with a fresh drink! The most representative places are the Cathedral of San Ildefonso, Sorbetes Colón, and the local food around the Zocalo. If you go to the...

There a different vibe in this place. All are very especial and uniq. The drinks were the best. Good place to invite the fiends and do the private dinner too. The only thing that I rate was the music. The radio was turn on a lot of high volume. I recommend.

The Hostel is in an excellent location right on the main square, provides a lovely breakfast in the morning. The rooms and communal areas were all clean!! However the mens toilets dont have doors only curtains, which makes pooping a little uncomfortable or brushing your teeth while someone else is pooping. By reserving a room online before we arrived the...
