Hostal Amigo is located near downtown Zocalo Square and the National Museum (15 '"Mexican steps"), behind an avenue where they trade (cheap) technology and with many shops and transport nearby. There are many different types of rooms(there are 3 or 4 floors), including rooms for couples. They have free internet service (PCs), free sightseeing tours and also tours you have to pay for (cheap), lockers, they give you sheets and pillows with their covers, they have a locked room to store large suitcases and a bar counter where you can order whatever they have (what more do you need? ... Corona and Tequila, of course). There is a man in the Hostal called Otto who, although you see him very little, he is always there when you need him (I needed him for a serious problem and he solved it) and then you have a number of employees such as Hector (among many others) who constantly assist you with whatever you need and your adaptation to visit the country. The hostel room is large with 12, 8, 6 beds and others. The price is under 10 € / day for a room and includes breakfast and dinner. Shared bathrooms and showers (on every floor) and every night there is a party with alcohol, fun, music and many, many "Mexican jokes". If you want to enjoy the Mexican day and night somewhere with people from many places around the world, cheap and cheerful ... This is the best place in DF.
A completely brand new hotel in a nice area of Mexico City, near the historic center and very well connected to the Paseo de la Reforma, which is one of the main parts of the city. The hotel is great and the rooms are fabulous. The only problem is that the terraces are not well soundproofed. They aren´t equipped with soundproof glass and therefore you can hear the music from the bar opposite. But it is highly recommended.
I've been lucky enough to try one of the hotels that is part of the Room-Mate chain. Valentina is in the heart of Zona Rosa in Mexico City, one step from the center's main attractions and the historic Zocalo Square (which you can get to by walking a short distance or, on Sundays rent one of the hotel's bikes and join the "healthy life" movement that brings thousands of Mexicans out along the main avenues that day). The hotel is a few meters from the famous Angel of Independence, a beautiful monument and a landmark for locating yourself in the Mexican capital. In addition, the Zona Rosa is set to be the center of the Mexican movement, with many hotels, restaurants, shops and bars that are super trendy (sort of like a little Chueca). It´s especially recommended for people who want to live the modern life (creative and free) in the city. The rooms have a "low cost design" but, minimal or not, there is nothing missing. The excellent care of the staff will make you feel at home and it is an ideal hotel if you are there just for visiting or for business. The hub-bub of the area (there is "life" at all times of day and night) will not bother you as it is completely soundproof... but ... Join the Party! Without a doubt, I definitely recommend this hotel with its good rates and the same standard of service as you would find at any other European or North American Room-Mate Europe (including breakfast until almost noon, which was appreciated after long sessions of Mexican turism).

I know, I know - it's an enormous chain hotel with no personality. It could be in Sao Paulo, New York or Los Angeles, but it's still wonderful. Within 10 - 15 minutes, you can be at the Zocalo.
