My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Casa Vilasanta very much. We came here when we taking a week's Spanish course at IMAC. It not only had a convenient location but we were able to feel at home with a nice room, open common areas to hang out, great kitchen and dining space. It is really nice to be... More

My boyfriend and I came to GDL to study with IMAC for 6 weeks and got a private room (#9) and love everyhting about our room, the workers here, and everything provided. 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

Excellent. Just perfect. Claudia, the owner was friendly and super helpful, going way above and beyond what was expected. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was perfect, with a beautiful communal area, dining area, and a spotless kitchen. The rooms were immaculate. Huge (I mean HUGE) beds, pillows soft, lockable cupboards/wardrobes for valuables. Toilets very clean and... More

During my traveling through Mexico I stayed three times at this wonderful place and there is a reason why I returned two times: Casa VilaSanta is the perfect place to hang out, to meet new people and make friends. It is located close to the city centre, it is very clean and staff is very helpful, open-minded and interested in... More

Location is good, close to a nightlife area. The hostel has firendly staff, there is a large kitchen and a large commom area in a varanda, where is easy to meet new people. There was a bar right in front of the hotel, so there was loud music on friday nights.
