Get to know Mexico City (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Mexico City.

Guess what? Mexico City is also named and spelled Cuidad de México - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

The most populous city in Mexico, and the country’s capital, Mexico City is infamous for being a dangerous place, especially for tourists. However, it has made significant changes in recent years, and is taking itself away from that reputation. The city is now a cultural haven. It is one of the oldest cities in the Americas and is consequently filled with colonial and Hispanic history.

This city draws people in from everywhere to experience its charm. It may feel a little chaotic and uncontrollable, but it does not take much to conquer Mexico City. The transport links are excellent and well organised, it is easy to find your way around, and there is so much to see and do that no visitor will be bored.

Because Mexico City is slowly re branding itself, hostels here are still at a low price per person per night, for good quality accommodation. For a traveller on a budget, a hostel in Mexico is a great idea, as not only will you meet people from all walks of life, you will also get a taste of local life thrown in. Mexico City is a hot spot for good food and culinary genius, and if you are lucky, then you will find a hostel that allows you to experience this.

Mexico City offers up many beautiful public spaces, great traditional food, and an exceedingly large amount of culture, found in its art and its architecture, such as in the Basilica de Guadalupe. Within its confusing streets and chaotic atmosphere, you will find special sights, such as pyramids Tenayuca, Santa Cecilia Acatitlan and Cuicuilco. You may also find yourself on one of its canals, or come across some of its impressive murals.

The capital is a super city, a destination where the hostels are cheap, but the Mexican culture is rich and flows through every street.
