I arrived at 5am in the morning on the day I had booked to check in. The night watcher let me in, said "you must be tired" and showed me to a bed. The 7 bed dorm was very clean and spacious with lovely high ceilings. One of the bunks did have a plank of wood fall down in the... More

We stayed in the Hostel Tequila for four nights and had a very nice time! The staff - especially Gaby - were really helpful in every situation. For example: One night it was raining very heavily and no one wanted to go outside..so Gaby ordered food on the phone for everyone. So we didn't have to starve! We really recommend... More

great and really clean hostel, the staff working there are the most fun people and will do everything to make you feel at home. Just make sure you don't drink too much tequila. You will definitely overstay.

Great hostel to set up from if your are looking to do daily tours to Tequila. Fantastic staff who are very helpful. Great place to meet fellow travelers. Wifi is great. Pool is great.

I have been traveling for more than half the year for the past 7 years mostly in Asia, and this is one of the worst places I have ever stayed (it rivals the worst in India!). My room with shared bath (supposed to be private ensuite) was bare bones. No fan, no lamp, a cable but no TV, a desk... More

I stayed here for almost a week and really enjoyed my stay. The staff treats everyone like family and are super helpful. One even took a bunch of us out to a football match! Will definitely stay here again if I get the chance to.

Great spot to stay in Guadalajara. Super central, placed between el Centro Historico and Chapultapec where all the young folks at. The staff is super lindo, helpful, and down to hang out and talk. They gave me great recommendations for day trips and stuff to do at night. Beautiful space as well. Thanks!
