    Had a perfect little stay at Roof Backpackers. Greeted very warmly on arrival and given lots of information about the hostel as well as the city of Guadalajara and surrounding areas. Arrived late but the staff helped me book a tequila tour for the next day (absolutely must). Everything super clean and the huge comfy beds are a nice treat. Hostel is super cute has all the facilities you could need such as decent kitchen and even little area to work. Only downside is not the most social of hostels

    This hostel has so much potential! Amazing balcony, great communal areas, amazing location. Sadly lacking a bit of a vibe which could easily be fixed by some lighting and music on the terrace / a chilled bar for the evenings. Enjoyed our stay ! Thank you :)

    Nice hostel with a great terrace. Completely lacking in atmosphere despite being full when I stayed.

    Nice, quality hostel. Clean, quiet. Staff conscientious. Much is in walking distance. Manager has good English. Only bump at all -- overcome by the manager -- dealing with a horrible guest who refused to mask even with his face hanging over my food in kitchen. After 3 weeks of The Roof I look forward to returning. 1 thing: Staff indifferent to bikes and biking; available bike/s, even old/worn, with adequate lock (bike I bought was stolen, light lock cut) would be great.

    Need new pillows. Beds are comfortable and security is great. Close to El Centro and bars ect. I will recommend to others to stay there. Will I possibly stay again in the near future? Possibly not.

    Very Good

    The rooftop was cool, the beds were wide enough. However, we were not allowed to open the windows thats why the room was stinky. There was no light at the beds so the whole room was super dark. During Covid a man was constantly coughing so it was horrible. I did not understand why he was allowed to stay in the hostel.

    Do not stay here if you want a hostel experience. I had zero interactions with other guests (were only a few). It's just a place to sleep, if you're fine with that, go for it! Staff is nice. Pretty annoying I had to pay for hand soap and a towel even with my private bathroom, plus the kitchen doesn't have basics like salt/pepper or cooking oil.
