Elías was a really friendly and welcoming host. The room was spacious and just as described with tall ceilings and a very comfortable bed! Wi-fi worked very well and Elias made sure we had everything we needed with access to guidebooks and suggestions for local events and top sightseeing spots. His apartment was in a great location in the city with a metro station only a few minutes walk away. There were roadworks going on outside during our stay which were very loud and went on until 3am one night!! However this wasn't Elías's fault at all and he offered us earplugs but we had our own. Despite the noise we would definitely stay again!

Absolutely a pleasure! Elias has a wonderful, creative and arty space in an edgy but convenient part of town, and is the friendliest and most interesting host I could ask for! He was super-sweet about bearing with some last-minute but unavoidable travel changes I had to make. I hope to see him again in Mexico or places elsewhere as a fellow world traveller. // Absolument un plaisir! Elias a un appartement tres cool, creatif, et artistique dans un quartier boho mais commode de la ville de Mexique, et il est tout chaleureux et interessant comme hote. Il est egalement tres amicable pour des changements urgents et inevitables dont j'avais besoin a faire, et j'espere faire RDV encore au Mexique ou d'ailleurs comme camarade de voyages mondials.

Elías was a great host. The house is spacious, comfortable and as advertised. He also ensured we had anything we needed and made check in and check out processes very simple.

(日本語は下)Elias's place was located in walking distance from two metro stations: Cualtemoc and Balderas, charmingly decorated, and easy to use. The mattress was too soft for us, and I should say the image on the photo appears to be much brighter than what we felt. But the neighborhood is lively in the morning, pleasant to walk around or go eat at Mercado or at the street venders (needless to say) and quiet at the night even though it is close to our favorite places like Arena Mexico and Punto Gozadela. Elias is a very kind host and I respect their work and arts tremendously. It felt really good for us to stay there and would like to be there again! エリアスさんの場所は地下鉄のCualtemocとBalderas駅からとても近く、コンビニ、市場などの他に、アレナ・メヒコやプント・ゴザデラのような地元の人にも観光客やアートファンや女性、クィアの人にとっても楽しい地域にあります。付け加えるなら、写真で見るより太陽光は入ってこないですし、私たちにはベッドが少し柔らかすぎましたが、朝は通りも活気があり、夜は静かです。エリアスさんは地域でのアート活動などに私たちを招待してくださって、本当に感謝していますし、メキシコシティのいろいろな顔を楽しむことができました。また泊まりたいです。
