With a 5-day work trip on the books for Mexico this summer, I decided to tack on an additional 4 days of fun in Mexico City. Since CDMX (Ciudad de Mexico aka Mexico City), isn’t known for being the safest, I invited my friend Karen along to be my wing-woman.
First things first, our hostel was awesome. Okay, so the WiFi was terrible and the pillows were lumpy, but Karen and I had a blast staying at Hostel Mundo Joven Catedral. It was located directly next to the Zocalo (see more below), so sightseeing was a breeze. The rooftop bar had a spectacular view, cheap drinks, and fun activities each night.
