The only issue was the fridge being too full and not cleaned periodically. Old food and beverage have to be tossed out and room should be left for the new guests. Everything else was o.k.

The location was good and the building was old and therefore full of character. The bathroom was not great, as the half-high stall doors and the swinging double entry doors lacked privacy. The 8-bed dorm was ok but had street noise and the individual lights were the bright flouro type that light the whole room, not just the one bed. Also, it would be nice if the bunk beds were built-in with privacy curtains. Lockers were good. Breakfast could have more/better fruit and cereal.

Thanks for the helpful comments. Your feedback is very important. We are glad you liked our location and had a good time. We're looking to do a little work on the bathrooms and will pay attention to your comments. Breakfast is the same we offer online. Safe travels! - Hospedarte centro manager

Although the location itself is good - near the historic buildings and not far from entertainment, the street was loud. The bathroom had half-height, swinging doors to enter and the toilet stalls had short doors too, so the bathroom experience was lacking in privacy. The eight-bed dorm reading lights were high intensity white lights which made it difficult to sleep if even only one of them was on. I would recommend constructing built-in bunks with privacy curtains. Kitchen frig was small.

Hi. Thanks for your comments. We are located in the hotel zone, surrounded by the most important hotel chains and feet away from the historical center. It could be noisy during the day. For guests who are looking for a more chilled and relax area we have another branch in Chapultepec. We also have private rooms with bathroom at a reasonable price. It´s a shame you could only see the negative aspect of your stay and nohing positive about it, even though you stayed 5 days with us. Safe travels! - Hospedarte centro manager

It is great & very good location in town centre. The bright yellow building is easy to find. You won't miss it in the evening ! There is a big area near kichard, take a rest & read books. Hostel staff are very helpful and enthusiastic. If you ask him/her for the place you want to go, they will help you to search the best way. Ching man from Hong Kong

one of the man's toilets was broken from few days (I was there one week prior), and still was when I was again there. Need more light at night on the dining/rest area to dark at night.

Hi! Thanks for your comments. Sorry about the inconvenience with one of the men´s bathrooms. We are working on it as fast as we can and will be fixed very soon. Beside the ceiling lights in the common area we also have the one over the pool table. Safe travels! - Hospedarte centro manager
