This is by far the nicest hostal I've ever stayed at. In fact it is nicer than a Iot of hotels I have been to! The price is a bargain when you factor in the restaurant-quality breakfast (I was always offered seconds and thirds), the onsite DIY laundry, and I can't forget to mention the spectacular views from the dorms...

I stayed in the dorm recently and it was truly one of the best dorm set ups I've ever experienced. The dorm is huge and my bed (number 8) was semi private, with windows on two sides, a dresser with mirror, two personal lights, outlet next to the bed for charing things, and there were no less than 2 full...

Absolutely loved my stay here. The view is the best, the staff are amazing and the breakfast is absolutely delicious amd plentiful to help with walking the guanujuato hills. The steps up to the hostel are not too bad (I had about 15kilos of backpack and am not very fit) and its so worth it and there are places you... More

Hostal Casa de Dante has to be one of the best hostels I've every stayed at! The staff are so welcoming and friendly. We didn't just feel like guests but more like one of the family. Although there are a lot of steps to walk up to the hostel, the views at the top and the stay are definitely worth... More

This place was more like a resort than a hostel. It is beautifully perched on a hill overlooking the town of Guanajuato and the cuevaceous hills surrounding it. There are two roof decks where I spent almost every evening sipping a glass of wine while watching the sunset. I chose the dorm room, and was placed on a corner with... More

This hotel is special because the management treats guests as long-time friends. The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable. It should be noted that although the local bus from the Central de Autobuses comes close to the hotel stairs, a first-time visitor will not find those stairs without assistance from someone who knows their location. You should take a taxi... More

La Casa de Dante is a beutifully decorated hostel in classic Mexican style. The vivid colours make it a joyful place, enhanced by the charm and hospitality of the staff. Breakfasts are remarkable and a great introduction to Mexican cuisine. The location might be an issue for some people as the steps could be a challenge, but this is Guanajuato!... More

This is a great place to stay. We stayed in a private double and it was an excellent value for the money. The atmosphere at this place is great, with travelers from all over the world, and rooms creatively decorated by art students from the local U. The room was basic, clean, and well-decorated. Traditional mexican breakfasts are huge and... More

Absolutely loved the Casa de Dante. The staff were really friendly and helpful, I especially loved our long chats with the cooking staff and other guests over (delicious) breakfasts. Felt very much like we were all in one big family home. Good location, easy walk to the centre. Awesome rooftop with an amazing view of the Guanajuato! Can't recommend this... More
