Really clean but nothing more. Atmosphere like in an hospital. I was really disappointed because the guy at the reception sold me a tour for two times the normal price. I asked him if it was the cheapest but he probably preferred to receive his commission. I personnaly hate this way of doing business.

We stayed at Hostal Paulina for four nights in December. Our room was very clean, though spartan (they could use mattresses and pillows!). The facility itself was very nice, and the breakfasts that are included are hearty and delicious, making it a real bargain. Be sure to go up to the roof for great views and sunshine. It's located just...

It is located near the centre, the stuff is ok, though I don't know if they speak English. The breakfast is very good and quite generous.The place is very nice (the female dormitory I stayed in was spacious and there was enough natural light) and generally very clean, bathrooms included. The only problem I experienced was the hot water -...

Centrally located and very clean, this hostel had its pros and cons. Pros included: nice location, roomy private room, great breakfast and nice rooftop to take in the view. Cons included: no private bathroom or tv, noisy on the street level, no kitchen or refrigerator access. There are plenty of hotels in the area, and maybe you can get more...

I stayed in this hostel by the end of September and had the worst experience ever. My things got stolen from the locker room and the staff was terrible while looking for help, they just kept saying that the were not responsible and nothing could be done. I had the fortune to see the hostel administrator, and he "ordered" the...

Although the staff was friendly and the breakfast was nice I would not reccomend Paulina. You pay to much for what you get.With 2 couples we stayed in a 4 bed room ( staple + twin). Rooms are verry basic, there were no draws or any hangers for our clothes. We slept in room P on the corner, and although...

Here's what's good about the hostel: + Entire hostel (from rooms to bathrooms to breakfast area) is spotless + Breakfast is great: free fruit, yogurt, tea, coffee, juice, eggs (different type each day or made to order), two types of cereal. +Extremely close to the zocalo. Here's what's bad about the hostel: -$175 MXN dorm beds are easily the most...

Paulina Youth Hostel was clean and organised, with a great location. The room was well laid out with comfortable beds and the rooftop had a great view of the city. Breakfast was well organised. Bathrooms were impeccable. For $175 (pesos) per night though, the value for money was not great. I was told before check-in that the hostel had WiFi....
