I was there with my wife and child last week for four nights. We stayed in one of their private rooms. The staff is unbelievably friendly and helpful. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcomed. There was a situation with some unruly guests that was resolved immediately. We have stayed there twice now and... More

Quaint little jewel in a funky area of centro. We adored the staff! They treated us like royalty, recommending restaurants and entertainment, arranging transportation. While we admittedly did take the private rooms, being able to say we stayed in a hostel was really fun, and we felt safe and secure at Maria. We were there for experience, not luxury -... More

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
