It’s not a comfortable place and there is a very stingy vibe around the place. Like having a lock and pay per play for the foosball table. It feels like nickle and diming. Also, when I ran out of pesos I asked if I could pay for the room with my card and have the cash I originally used returned so I could buy things and eat. The lady running the hostel said no because she just didn’t want to. No other reason
Check in and staff was good. They had safe luggage storage and check out day is free. Breakfast was good, they make eggs for you, cereal and fruit are also available
Bed was not comfortable. Bed linens were not fitted for the bed. Bathroom water pressure needs to be improved. Credit card machine worked after the 4th try at different times which was annoying.
Dorm was nicer than the private despite the fact I paid for the private as they would not give me the money back. Location fine.
I showed them the bites from the bed bugs that I received within 20mins of lying on the bed. The man moved me rooms to a dorm but when I asked for the money back he refused to accept that these were bed bugs and refused to give me the money unless I cancelled my booking - thus disallowing me to write a review. He was so rude to me and seemed to suggest that I was lying about the bites despite the fact I had shown him them. Made sense that he wouldn't want me to write this up seeing as they have such good reviews despite being so unclean and dingy and dark. One sink to be shared between about 20 people. Two toilets for the same. Needs repainting. Staff rude.
Staff were friendly and helpful even with communication barrier. I liked that the front door was locked. Nice simple breakfast. Cheap price.
Location not great - many other better options closer to restaurants, zocalo, etc. Noisy from other guests. The room was a bit stuffy - not enough fresh air. Shower water pressure very weak - could not wash my hair.
The breakfast is good
Not super clean. The shower and toilets outside could be better ! The room is very small and smelly !
