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

Beautiful location, clean dorm, great food in the morning. Although this place was a bit more expensive than the other dorms I stayed at in Mexico it was one of my favourites. The cook (dante's mum) made an amazing breakfast for me that changed every morning, and helped me a lot with my Spanish. One of my dorm mates became... More

Excellent hotel/hostel located about a 10-15 minute walk from the city center. Very friendly staff, great value and clean. My private room came with a private bathroom and balcony offering incredible views of the city and surrounding hills. With such a view, the steep climb to the front door didn't bother me. As just about everyone has mentioned, the complimentary... More

La Casa de Dante is absolutely charming. Great location with a picturesque rooftop common area. Our private room was spotless with a great little balcony. The breakfast is delcious and lovingly prepared. The staff are friendly and super helpful. I would recommend both Guanajuato and La Casa de Dante to anyone visiting Mexico!
