This is a very nice, budget hostal, clean and with great character. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. On separate visits we stayed in both the double rooms off the rear patio, for the price they are fine, though a little cramped and one bed slopes somewhat. Breakfast is continental with brewed coffee. The back patio adds... More

I stayed at Hostal de Maria for a full month and was treated very well by all staff members. In addition to providing maps of the city and basic recommendations on eateries and attractions, the staff even let me practice my Spanish with them and treated me like family. The layout of the hostal is dormitory-style with front and back... More

I took the bus to Hostal de Maria after spending a sleepless night the night before at Hostel Hospedarte. Hostel Hospedarte is a lovely hostel in an upscale neighborhood, and when I first arrived there, I was so pleased. The staff is very kind and helpful, and the room, though expensive (about $35/ for a single) was very nice, and... More

This centrally located hostel is called a "backpackers haven". It has a central location in Guadalajara for those who want to explore the delights of the city without spending a fortune on taxis. It is 2 blocks from banks, one from the state police, 8 from a huge flower market, and close by in various directions are other open-air markets.... More

This place is not fancy, but as hostels go it is clean, has good service, is in a good location close to central Guadalajara and many of the historic sites, and the price (I paid around $15/night for a dorm room) seemed very reasonable. There's no air conditioning so it can be a bit warm, and the computers available for... More

I called this place the morning of the day we arrived looking for a private room. They told me that we could have a dorm for just the two of us and a private for the following night. Upon arrival we were told we had to share with someone else. No big deal but there did appear to be empty... More
