Hostel Amigo - Hostel Mexico City - Mexico

People who like to party will find a grand welcome at the Hostel Amigo, about three blocks southwest of the Z贸calo in the center of downtown Mexico City. The bar is just steps beyond the front desk in the lobby, which is bright, festive and fun, with comfy couches, lots of joke signboards and scribbles on the walls from past (and possibly inebriated) visitors. The bartenders are gregarious people who encourage socializing and like to play thumping loud music until 1 a.m. This might be a problem for light sleepers who have rooms on the first floor, so bring earplugs.

Otherwise, the hostel is a great place to meet fellow travelers during the free breakfast (coffee, fruit, juice, eggs, cereal, bread, etc.) and free dinner (generally lots of pasta, thoroughly cooked vegetables, and maybe a little grape gelatin). The dorm beds could be more comfortable, however, and the blankets are a bit scratchy. Free WiFi is available in the lobby, and there are three computers with free Internet access. Lockers are inconveniently located just off the lobby, in a locked room.

Note: Like much of downtown Mexico City, this is not the best neighborhood to walk around in at night. The owners of Hostel Amigo also own Hostal Moneda, just off the Z贸calo.
