Just a few blocks from the central plaza the location of this hostel in good. It's housed in an orignial colonial building with all rooms upstairs surrounding a central courtyard. The dorm was not the best I've seen for a number of reasons. It felt a bit too crowded at times with 20 beds in total (if I counted right)....

1 night at the Hostel + Nice service, speaks English + great location, 3 blocks from Zocalo + great place to meet other backpackers + good to party (many clubs with live bands) - dorm has 20 beds instead of 8 - bathroom is inside the sleeping dorm - beds squeak terribly

Stayed here for two nights in a private room. Room was very large with high ceilings and one double and one single bed. Bathroom was good size aswell with plenty of hot water. You need to have your own towel, or rent one from the hostel for 40p (35p returned on checkout). Breakfast included in price with toast, cereal, coffee,...

Clean, well-groomed hostel. It's 5 minute walking from the zocalo in a safe area. Room was big and clean, basin was in the room but this was not a problem for us. Breakfast is included but it's a little poor! Price is very good! We really reccomend this hostel

I just spent 3 nights at the Hostal Santo Domingo. It is located about 5 blocks from the Zocalo in a safe, clean, convenient area of the Centro Historico. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The Hostal Santo Domingo is a bare, but spacious, bright and quiet place. My room had two enormous beds (actually the bed was the most comfortable I have slept in two months' travel in Mexico), with a small TV, but no remote, and a bathroom constructed inside the room (as I say, a very spacious room). This is a no-frills...
