Very Good 8.0
One night in Mexico City
A little hard to find and directions from airport to hostel by metro could have been clearer but all in all a quaint place. Pretty comfy. They let us check in early which was SO appreciated after a red-eye flight!!

Good location and price. Bed was hard for our tastes while I'm sure others would appreciate the firmness.

Happy we stayed here
The hotel is basic but comfortable Old which is part of its charm but warn in some ways The central garden is cared for and we were even lucky enough to spot a hummingbird visit at breakfast The location is perfect for accessing the historic centre of town and cheap for its location The security is good and it feels like a haven
