            The price, breakfast, downstairs bar, people

            No internet on second floor, no windows, no noise isolation.

            excelent price/quality ratio

            some confusion with pricing; the confirmation mail I received reported a priced a bit higher than what was reported on Booked.net; anyway the price I was then actually charge was the lower one, so not too big a deal.

          • Single
            7.4

            Extremely near to a metro. Free breakfast which is pretty good.

            1. One of the staff is either forgetful or dishonest. After 2-3 hours from checking out, I suddenly remembered that I was not returned the $20 key deposit. I went to the counter. Unfortunately, the man who checked me out was not on duty anymore. I explained what happened to the woman who was on duty. She said it was reflected on the computer that the key deposit money has been returned to me. I refused to leave and said in my broken spanish about the man lying and I am going to write a review on the internet. She immediately returned me the $20. mx$20 is very little money but it's the principal that counts. 2. I asked the counter staff to dial a cab for me. She called a private cab for me which cost a bomb! From centro historic to colonia Tabacalera. It cost MXP$130. I repeatedly asked the counter staff whether it is reasonable and she repeatedly said yes. Being my first time taking a cab and sick (I had diarrhea), I paid the money to her. Yes, the cab fare of MXP$130 was paid to her instead of to the driver. Fishy to me. Perhaps, things work differently in Mexico. Anyhow, I know taxi privados are more expensive after reading certain posts on foreigners being ripped off by restuarants / hostels dialing a cab on their behalf. To make things worse, the driver does not know the place at all - not unexpected since DF is so huge. I had to give him instructions once we reached the colonia in 10 minutes. But he took another 10 minutes circling around to find the street based on my presumably poor instructions. 3. Dormitory rooms have no windows - at least the one I stayed in. But for the price, one cannot complain. 4. The crowd who stay at dormitories. If you enjoy socialising, partying, hanging out, this hostel is the perfect place for you. I had an exhausting trip before coming to DF and needed a place to rest and recuperate. The atmosphere of the whole place isn't conducive for that. BUT, perhaps, you get rest if you were to book a single room.

            I liked the location, it was convienent and easy to find once you can get your bearrings, it was also easy to get to from the airport, again once getting directions though. close to centro, zocalo metro it works for what I needed it for.

            no windows, which was strange and made it hard to guess what time it was (found myself waking up at 730 am, stuff dosent start around here until 9-10) plus I kind of think that is a firehazard but meh.. place didn't burn down while I was here so tht'a alright :)

            The staff is very helpfull and available also in terms of do not press you about using the facilities even the same day when are you leaving. I recommend the internal travel agency the girl there is very nice , competent and helpfull:Recommended!

            the first night the guy at the reception desk close the kitchen around 10 pm.But after my complain as I had everything in the fridge he opened again and never close again.

            Staff was helpful and friendly, location is perfect, rooms and showers were nice and clean and it's very cheap.

            It's too noisy - partly because of the guests, but also because of the layout of the rooms. My room didn't have any windows, so there were some ventilation "windows" to the hallways. This meant that all noise and light from the hallways came into the room. Also, room was a but too small. But for this price, you can't really complain.

            Excellent location, good breakfast, excellent location

            Badly organised. Printer didn't work. Room wasn't cleaned one day. Beer mahcine didn't work. Not much atmosphere. Virtually all the male toilets and showers suddenly closed for no apparent reason.

            it is a relaxt place, comfortable beds. staff is very friendly. simple but good breakfast in the middle of the old centre good value for money this was amigo close to santa domingo. there are 2 hostels with the same name!

            the first room was a private suite it was very comfortable but a bit noisy due to the street

          • Couple
            5.4

            This hostel would not honor my Booked.net reservation price and were rude when asked to.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            There is lots to like about Amigo (but see the downside below): Good location (about 5 min walk from the very heart of MC), very focused on providing good customer service, friendly staff, great internet access (wifi and a number of computers, for free), lots of free and low-cost tours, free breakfast etc.

            We had booked a private double room with private bathroom and a window. Everything else was fine, except one thing: the road noise! We felt like we were sleeping on the road - the ear plugs helped a little, but unfortunately we couldn't handle the noise for more than just one night... Hence the low score for comfort.
