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!
Great view!! It is a good place to see the whole city. They also provide good breakfast, too. I will absolutely come back again!!
The family who run the hostel are lovely and very accomodating. They cooked a traditional mexican breakfast for us and the other guests each morning in their kitchen which was delicious. Ask for a top level room and the view from your room and balcony is spectacular. It is long and steep walk up the stairs from the street to get to the hostel but you can ask a taxi or get a bus to the street at the top of the stairs if you're feeling lazy. It was quiet during my time so didnt meet many other ppl
Despite the long stairs you have to take everything else is great! The people, the atmosphere, the food, truely everything. Recomended for sure.
Nicely decorated house, with Mexican theme. Clean, nice ensuite with balcony. Breakfast included (didnt know that until check out). However not the best nights sleep I have had, bed very hard and pillow needs replacing. There are a number of very excitable neighbouring dogs, so not the quietest either.
If your looking for a warm, friendly and most welcoming place to stay in Guanajuato - than look no further than Casa de Dante. From the minute I arrived I was treated like family. To awake to delicious original breakfasts while sipping amazing coffee and chatting with the guests, owner and staff was a royal treat. For the owner of this place is a super lovely lady that truly accommodates any need you may have. And to top it off, the view overlooking Guanajuato was amazing. Muchas gracias
