I booked this place for Christmas for my partner and I. I checked serval times over the phone and email (I speak fluent Spanish) that the private room had a bathroom and all of the other things we wanted because it was a special time of year. We arrived and found out quickly everything they told us was a complete... More

I stayed there for 3 nights and the place was quite nice. I didn't want to share a room with anyone so I had a big suite just for me with a private bathroom (toilet and shower). Sadly enough, while I expected to have a quiet stay in the hostel, the strip club next to the building was quote loud... More

the hotel staff was very nice and trying its best, but the room reaks of cigarette smoke, there were questionable stains everywhere on the bed sheets, and the bed was nested on a 'mezzanine' with the most ridiculous small stairs... what a shame! and the location is ok but you still have to walk 15 minutes to the center. sorry...

We stayed here and loved it. The shuttle from the airport leaves you right around the corner...so convenient and inexpensive too. It works out great if you have two or more people because the rooms have 2-4 beds which is really great for the price. Sushi restaurant next door is great and really cheap! My only tiny observation was the... More

The last time I was it Guadalajara it turned out to be the trip from hell......I DO VOW NEVER to travel in a pack of women but after this experience I WILL stay in a hostel again. I am a young at heart traveler and I am so glad that I took a chance again to stay at Hotel Lit.... More

My partner and I stayed at Lit after finding the prices were best here, though still high compared to other places in Mexico - be prepared, 250 pesos for a double "dorm"! Some walking around with luggage fresh after our flight proved Guad was just slightly beyond our budget and Lit certainly the best deal. However the receptionist (good English,... More

Nice hostel, friendly staff and good location, even if not too safe during the night. Could be better cleaned and the female bathroom is too small. The breakfast is enough - bread, cereal, coffee and butter.

This place was surprisingly pleasant. I heard of this place from a friend who stayed here. She said for the price, it was the best option. And i couldn't agree with her more. I'm glad i stayed here, there is lots to do at the hotel, as well as outside the hotel. Its in an ideal place for business or... More
