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!

Breakfast to die for. Lovely clean rooms. Great value. Hill up and down is intense. Front steps are major booby trap, super slippy when it's wet, as is the roof deck. Great views from up there.. those hills are closer than they look. Go for a walk.

Don't be afraid that this is listed as a hostel -- it's probably nicer than most of the hotels in Guanajuato at a fraction of the cost. The hostel is clean and really nicely decorated, and the rooms are comfortable with nice artwork. I hate paying a lot for a hotel room because I'm usually not in the room except... More

One of the best hostels I'd ever stayed--the place is professionally run, super clean, filled with characters and with a gorgeous view! Dante is a great host, extremely intelligent and fun to talk to, and his mom cook a yummy breakfast that beats breakfast at any other B&B! I was thousands of miles from my home country, and yet they... More

This is an incredibly nice hostel! The family that runs the hostel treated me great specially I was deadly sick. Although I spent most of my time in the hostel during my Guanajuato trip, I still won't regret just because of the view from the roof

This was a great place for my partner and I to stay. The family that runs it is very friendly. It's located about a 5-10 minute walk from the busy part of Guanajuato, and we appreciated the fresher air and low noise. Breakfasts were fantastic, the bed was comfortable (although not luxury) and the room as a whole was great.... More
