Cheap Hostels in Mexico City

Search Mexico City hostels with up-to-date availability and book a hostel in Mexico City.

Mexico City has literally hundreds of places to stay, ranging from cheap hostels to luxury hotels and everything in between. The area where you’ll stay in will dictate the price of the room. If you are looking for cheap hostels, then Centro Historico is the best choice for you.

Look for “hostal” in the name of the accommodation place. That’s “hotel” in Spanish. Even though some places will also have the word “youth” in their name, it doesn’t mean there is an age restriction. Hostels are excellent choices for those on a low budget regardless of age.

Other places have the word “backpackers” in their name. But that doesn’t mean you have to be a backpacker to stay there.




If you like the idea of a low-budget accommodation but don’t want to spend your night in a room with 20 other travelers, choose a private room in a hostel as most of them offer this possibility. And you’ll still be able to make friends and socialize, as you’ll be using the common room and the kitchen.

In Mexico City, staying closer to the sites doesn’t mean you’ll pay more for your room. Actually, the cheapest hostels are found in Centro Historico. Bed prices start at US$9 per night in dorms and US$14 per night in private rooms.
