My husband and I stayed two weeks at Casa Vilasanta while we attended the IMAC language school. We enjoyed our stay very much. The hostel is very clean and the staff did a great job cleaning our room each day. A breakfast of toast, cereal, fruit and coffee was available each morning. The kitchen is open for anyone who would... More

I have visited Guadalajara a number of times over the past 10 years and I've always stayed at the Vila Santa. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. The place has a nice atmosphere and a good location close to the historical center. When I visit Guadalajara, this is my place to go, I don't even look anywhere else. They... More

My husband and I have been staying at Vilasanta since September 2014, when we arrived to Guadalajara for our TEFL course at ITTO. We didn't anticipate staying more than a month, but three months later we are still here! The place is fantastic and the staff are wonderful, especially Chary, Claudia and Willie. Chary's welcoming smile is enough to brighten... More

Big kitchen and fridge with Soriana (grocery store) only a few blocks away. It's close to anything you would want or need and even has a small corner... More

I came to GDL to do a month long intensive EFL certification course, and the staff and atmosphere at vilasanta made that possible. They were very accommodating and sweet, and everyone here is willing to hang out and show you a good time, or leave you alone, whichever you desire! The location is perfect, a block from a big park... More

Casa Vilasanta offered excellent service! Lovely ladies at the reception spoke fluent English and we're happy to go the extra mile for you. Atmosphere was relaxed and safe. Kitchen is big and provides everything you need. They have big fridges! My room was spacious with a big closet. Location is convenient and close to everything. Once again thank you Chary... More

Our first stay was in 2011, second stay 2014, nothing has changed, everything still looks the same. This time we we got one of the smaller newer looking rooms upstairs. I still like the place (see previous review) and like the location, but this time the price was twice as much, and that made me sad. I know the time... More

Lovely place, a beautiful open very old world feeling common area, decent kitchen and huge refrigerator and bins to keep your food. Rare in a hostel. Good security and very friendly responsive staff. My small single private room was just what I wanted, good storage and a small desk. Good shower. Housekeeping staff very sweet, good private spaces. Only down... More
