I stayed in a KSRish dive. The purple back pack kinda place where some travellers opt out of wearing shoes. It was near the Zoocolo. I got in at night. After throwing my kit on my bunk I was off to the bar. As I left I was given a map of the local area with half of it crossed out. The no go for gringo areas. I had a wonderful time.

Last time there stayed at Hotel Isabel which is very convenient in the heart of the historic center of Mexico City. Get a room on the top floor for a decent view and quiet. Single renovated room with private bath less that US$25/night.

I was mainly outside of MC climbing but in MC I stayed In Centro, at Hostal Sam Il Defenso (or something like that) and the Chillout Flat. Both were fine. Centro is great for stuff to see, metro connections etc. but it is a concrete jungle. If I get back there I may stay in Condesa or Coyocan. If you have money to burn stay in Polanco, its like Beverly Hills. As far as sights the pyramids (long word starting with T), Xocomilcho and Leon Trotsky's toilet are worth seeing. Taxco is a neat day trip from MC.
