We are a new boutique hostel in Mexico City. We are located in Colonia Condesa, one of the hippest districts in Mexico City. It has an artsy, bohemian and friendly feel. Along with its neighbor, “La Roma”, it offers most of the gastronomic and cultural scene of the city, making it a great place to walk around, find a nice coffee shop near Parque Mexico or a restaurant with delicious food and great atmosphere. It is also known as the hipster quarter, so it calls for a younger and more cosmopolite crowd. The nightlife is so diverse you could either grab some drinks at a funky pub, rock at a live concert or simply bar hop all night. Its location makes it easy to get to most of the main sights and the city center. Grab the subway, a bike or an uber and get there in a flash.
We have amazing design, a fully equipped kitchen, two common areas to chill, hangout, watch movies or take part in the activities we plan. From yoga classes, meditation ceremonies, cooking courses, live music, pop up dinners amongs others.
We love creating experiences for travelers to enhance connection with locals and with mexican culture. The staff is friendly, and laid back but is also very firm in its values of offering excellent service that distinguishes us from the rest of the hostels. In the hostel its all about experiences and connection. Synchronicities that happen at every moment, and everyone being able to share knowledge and talents. We love when guests have something to share with others, like music, or cooking their local food. We are not a party hostel but enjoy the occasional celebration, creation of craft cocktails, local mezcal or beer tastings... We appreciate innitiative from volunteers and are really looking forward to having you collaborate with us and get to know our amazing city and culture at the same time.

Visitors love how the hostel is an example of local but contemporary art and design. The whole place is designed and decorated by local artists and artisans, changing the perception of foreigners about Mexican design and artistic view.
Travellers may join the free tours we organize and if they stay enough time start giving them out themselves.
We are looking to find enthusiastic travelers who are keen on exploring Mexico but also on living a hostel life and helping us out with the daily activities. These may vary from reception, planning of activities for guest connection and event coordination. From time to time help with the cleaning and the watering of plants.
