If you're not travelig with children you should consider staying at a hostel. The hostel quality does vary and the historic center of mexico city (centro historico) offers a fantastic range of hostels that have very comfortable settings.
Lots of options for you and don't be afraid of hostels they are awesome places to meet up with like minded people.
In Response to Where to stay in Mexico City on a serious budget?:[QUOTE]
I've written an article on cheap hotels in Mexico City and it lists a few good options that I know of. I'm really looking for hotels that are under $30US per night, but are decent. Can anyone recommend some good ones they have stayed at?
