The hostel is really good located only 2 blocks from the catedral and the Zocalo (big main plaza en D.F./Mexico City). It has a really nice and big rooftop, a great and big breakfast and a nice, standard dinner, both included in the price - 170 MXN per night. The rooms are clean and quiet even though they are located... More

As a cheap hostel that provides free wifi, breakfast and dinner included with your payment is very good. For 190 pesos per night you can't expect a five stars service, food and wifi signal/speed. There are a few details like The wifi didn't work a whole day and the first night there were this guys making a lot of noise... More

Loved the breakfast provided by Victor and his team every morning!! Miss your morning Cumbia, salsa music.... The location is perfect- 2 minutes walk from the main square and close to the railway stations.

Hostal Amigo is located in the historical centre and breakfast and dinner is included in the price. I've stayed here for 4 nights, but the dorm was terrible. There were no windows nor ventilation in our dorms and barely any natural light. Meaning that every morning you wake up to the smell of your fellow travellers sweat. Not so much... More

I stayed at Hostel Amigo for seven nights in January. The best thing about it is the great location right in the historic center. It's safe day and night, as the area has a impressive police presence. A lot of sights are within walking distance (Zocalo, Merced market, Garibaldi plaza). The Isabel la Catolica Metro-station is also very close, so... More

The facilities are ok, you get what you see in the pictures. My review is negative because of the lack of service, unfriendliness and lack of courtesy over the telephone.
