You can pay with your Visa card. They mood is very relaxed with nice music, though it can be a bit hard to find as there are no signs. It is on the first floor overlooking the corridor of tax free shops. Picture included might clarify the location.

Update from Marion, 21.2.2020. The smoking Lounge is still open and on the same Location. Rates are now 100 MEX or 6 USD. You receive a Ticket which is valid for 24 hours. Water and Coffee is still included. For longer layovers we would say a cheap option.
