The breakfast is incredible!!! There is something different every morning which is a traditional Mexican dish. The ladies that make the breakfast are so friendly. Hostel is really clean, quiet and has a lovely roof top terrace and you can do your laundry there for free. The steps are really not bad and it is a close walk to town.
I have stayed at this hostel before without any problems. However, this time when I arrived, my reservation for two twin beds showed up as one double bed. This caused a problem because there were no other rooms available with two beds. So, we ended up comparing reservations and they were different, but had the same reservation number. Dante, the owner, couldn't explain what happened. He offered two rooms, but at a higher price. But, we thought he should have honored the lesser of the two prices.
Great hostel but too many stairs! The breakfast was great and the staff really nice.
The hostel is just amazing! If you are a foreigner and want to visit Guanajuato this is a really good option. It is what you would expect from Mexico, beautiful rooms, classical mexican decorations and tons of mexican pink colour. Breakfast is much better than any other I got when I was traveling in Europe, you will love that. Though you should prepare to walk because the hostel is not that close to the center.
The place is really nice and clean, decorated in traditional Mexican fashion, and the staff was very friendly. You get a traditional Mexican breakfast served (included in the price), unlike the jam and bread other hostels give you. It's a bit hard to access though, as you need to either walk 150 steps up or 150 steps down to get to the place. Overall, you get great value for money!

This is the BEST place I stayed.. The owner and his mother are true artist, they paint and decorate the whole place really beautiful and stylish. The mother made the most adorable breakfast in the world, fruit in animal faces different every day, with local style freshly cooked meal..... The location is absolutely amazing, from their balcony you can enjoy the whole city view at one glance. Grab a beer, talk to your hostelmate, watch sunset together..Everything is clean...Highly recommend!!!
really great place off the beaten track. The family that owns the place is very nice. yes, there are bunch of steps but it makes for a great view. I would suggest this place for longer stays in town...more than 3 days.
If you can't do the hill then don't do it. Otherwise it is a better value than it looks. Breakfast is good and huge & drinking water provided at the hostel all with clean and nice facilities.

All in all, this was a great hostel. YES THE UPHILL LOCATION is a bit tough (but do-able!) but still very accessible to tourist sites and it was nice to be away from all that. The view is spectacular and the house itself is great too, you can tell they really took care in decorating. Dante was very accommodating and welcoming, super nice guy. I want to return to Guanajuato, and I know where I'll be staying!
It is a truly great hostel ! It is even more of a hotel, than a hostel ! The owner, Dante, is very nice. The breakfast is more of a a la carte restaurant, with original and very tasty mexican food! The lady preparing it is extremely nice and the guy helping her as well! I have never seen this kind of service in any hotel in any country where I went! The hostel is very beautifully decorated and has an astonishing view on Guanajuato from its roof! I will definetely come back! Thank you a lot!
This is such a beautiful hostel, with a great atmosphere and big, clean rooms that are tidied daily - there's also a traditional mexican breakfast included, with the menu changing daily. However, It's about a 15 minute walk to the town centre and there's some very steep steps to get up and down outside the hostel.
This place is great! It's super safe and far away from the noisy historic center, but close enough to walk to it. The down side was definitely all the stairs. If you don't mind getting a short workout everytime, I do recommend this place.
Oh my! I just can't say enough good things about this place! I stayed once 2 years ago & loved it so much I had to go back & stay again. The owner, Irene, is amazing & makes the best breakfasts! Coffee, fresh juice, fruit, main dish, even hot chocolate! You couldn't ask for friendlier staff or a better, cleaner hostel. All facilities are kept very neat & tidy all the time. The view from the balconies is amazing& challenges that of the mirador. Do yourself a favor while in Guanajuato & stay here!
