I had a very good experience in Casa de Dante. The staff offered a world class service. The hostel is well located. If you like exercising, you better choose Casa de Dante... There are 165 stairs from the main street to the hostel entrance. (I loved it). The only complain I have is about the bad internet in second floor and the lack of wall sockets to charge phones. Breakfast was very good.

Amazing breakfast!!!!! The staff is really nice and eager to help. The location is good, near to the city center, only that to get to the hostel one has to climb a lot of stairs. We recommend it 100%
The location is in the middle of a bunch of stairs going up the mountain, so you can't get dropped off in front, but as long as you're in shape, you can get there no problem. It is worth the hike there to get the view from the top. The place has a ton of small details, more than any hostel i've ever stayed in. It's very beautiful, and the lockers are like little closets, big enough for your things. The breakfast is amazing, and Dante is a super nice guy. I'd love to stay here again someday.
The steps are a serious climb, but as long as you're reasonably in shape, they're fine. The view and the food are worth it. Be sure to go up the stairs also. At the top head right to the statue of Piplia, or left to head into the mountains. Both have amazing views.
If you aren't sure where to stay in GTO, look no further. Book this now! It truly is the best hostel there (when I was there people moved from other hostels to Casa del Dante because it was way better) and though the prices may seem high at first the breakfast is more like brunch, so you end up saving money on food. Plus the rooftop is amazing! Probably better for the fit because of the stairs. Dorm is great - has TWO ensuite bathrooms. Loved my time there!
The ideal location to take in the beauty of Guanajuato! My favorite night at the hostel was cooking out on the balcony. The top balcony has a full, outdoor kitchen with comfortable recliners and seats all ready for your use! Dante is an artist and you can tell by how he has designed the hostel. He had a vision and he really made It come alive. There is not a corner of this hostel that is not beautiful. The place is kept clean and the breakfast is delicious.
Would definitely stay here again!

Though the place was a bit difficult to get to, once there the place was beautifully mexican, with a lot of color and people there were very nice! The thinkg I looked forward the most was the Breakfast, and I was not disapointed, it was Delicious!! So the 'getting there' is totally worth it!!
Lovely place, cool people, good location, everything fine! But the best: MENTAL BREAKFAST
amazing!!! best breakfast in a hostel anywhere in the world. cool place and rooms, one of the best I've every seen. so friendly
The best was its breakfast and the cleaning ladies who prepared it, they were really nice. But the hostel is very expensive and is not congruent: showers were no good, wifi sometimes didnt work, im 1,85 m. height and my bed was 1,75. Besides, eventhough at the begining we thought it was funny the 165 stairs climbing, when you are tyred after a whole day, or you have heavy backpack, its not cool and it forces you to take a taxi. Not much social vibe, the owner does nothing for it.
Quite far out of town and pretty empty for a big place. Difficult to meet people. Shower always breaking. But room is nicely decorated and breakfast was excellent.
We enjoyed our stay at the hostel very much. It is very beautiful, clean and the rooms are big. The breakfast is so tasty and the lady who prepares it is very friendly. The owner gave us all the necessary information and even helped us with the reservation of our next hostel in the next city. I would stay in this hostel again.
The Staff were fantastic. Learnt a lot about the city from the staff. The view from the room and the balcony outside seating area is fantastic, it over looks the whole city. One of the best view i saw while travelling around mexico. the homemade mexican breakfast was fantastic and different everyday, which made it a very special stay.
I absolutely rerommend that hostel! the staff (especially breakfast ladies) were wonderful, great view especially at night, met great people there -> wonderful atmosphere + I booked an 8 bed dorm and got a double room with privat bathroom :D thank you!
Dante and his son are top geezers. Cheers for a great stay boys. Not to mention Mama and her awesome breakfasts! Great hostel!
This place is your best option in the whole Mexico. Maybe is not right in the center, about 15 mins walking, but it is very nice, clean, with tipical mexican atmosphere and the lady who takes care of the breakfast will make you discover plenty of original fruits/plates and enjoy very interesting and amazing conversations. Gracias por todo senora ranita :)
I highly recommend Casa de Dante. It's a beautiful hostel with a great value for the price. Like many other reviewers I agree with how delicious Breakfast. The only downfall are the stairs but I took it as a workout :).
It is really nice place to stay, although bit outside the city center with the need to climb up few dozens of steps. Dante is really nice, helpful, though modest guy. Breakfasts are extraordinary. When coming by taxi insists that the driver takes you to the upper street so you can walk down to the hostel.
