Top-Rated Mexico City Hostels

These are the best Mexico City hostels if you’re looking to meet new friends

These Mexico City hostels are the most popular and top-rated hostels in Mexico City, ranked by our fast-growing audience of backpackers.

There are tons of hostels in Mexico City and there are tons of neighborhoods to stay in. So how do you decide? Well, if you’re like me then you care more about the people you meet than you do the things you see. So, my choice is usually the most ‘social’ hostel, and that isn’t necessarily the most party hostel.

If you’re backpacking Central America and Mexico is just the start, then I suggest you check out our top-rated hostels in Central America.

#1 Hostel Suites DF

Hostel Suites DF is personally my favorite hostel in Mexico City and is where I met some great friends who I traveled with throughout Mexico. The common room is a great place to meet new people and everyone there is so social. It's constantly rated one of the top hostels for solo travelers.

I can't remember if they host any of the tours themselves but they have all the information you need to book tours. You can certainly meet a group of backpackers in the common area who are looking to visit Teotihuacán with you.

It's rated 9.1 on Hostelworld and has more than 3,000 reviews.

Don't take my word for it, read a review: "Love staying here. I don't know what it is about it but it's such a social hostel but definitely not a party hostel. So great for meeting people especially as a solo traveller." - Anonymous

#6 Selina Mexico City Downtown

Honestly, I'm a little disappointed to have to put Selina so far down on the list. I've never stayed at their Mexico City hostel personally, but I've stayed at many of their hostels and they've all been exceptional.

It's rated 8.3 on Hostelworld and has more than 3,000 reviews.

Don't take my word for it, read a review: "I have nothing but good things to say about this hostel! It was once a big-time hotel, and now it's converted into a stylish hostel with six floors for travelers and for couples. I also am very pleased with the service I got - when there was an error with my travel arrangements, I had to make a last-minute extension of my stay. Melina at the front desk was very accommodating, and I am very glad she was able to make everything work out smoothly." - Peter K.
