This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a night to crash before catching an early morning flight out of Mexico City and Hostel Cathedral was a great place with friendly service and in a central location to socialize with travelers and spend a final night in Mexico City.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My stay at Hostel Cathedral was perfect. This is the best hostel I've ever stayed at during my seven years of traveling throughout Latin America.

The whole place is clean and organized, offering just about everything you can imagine.
Most impressive of all was the crew at Cathedral. Very open and amiable; I won't soon forget my five days spent in Mexico City.
