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

We spent a weekend in this hostel and it was just amazing. The owners are super friendly and Dante's mum prepares an excellect breakfast every morning. We had booked four beds in a dormitory but we got our own room with a private bathroom. It was very clean and spacious.

I stayed at Casa de Dante for the second time in February 2014 (both time with a friend) and did not regret re-booking. As soon as you arrive, you feel like you are being welcomed into a family home. Rogelio the son was manning the check-in desk and his mum gave us a friendly 'buenas noches' as she passed through... More

This is a great choice for a hostel in Guanajuato: an elegant, kind family, with wonderful breakfasts who will keep you fascinated with discussion about Mexican life and politics. The building in a well maintained, with a great view over the city. It's a steep walk down into town, and about 15 minutes by foot to the centre. My only... More

La Casa de Dante is an excellent and economical place to stay. At every turn there is beautiful Mexican Folk Art. And the place is very clean from top to bottom. This guesthouse is a family run place and warm and inviting! The daily breakfast is more than a breakfast but more of a gourmet meal! The cooking is done... More

I spent two nights in la Casa de Dante, and I had a very good experience. It is a quiet, friendly and clean hostel. The breakfast is AWESOME. La Senora Irene and Diana are experts of Mexican food, and you will eat a different sophisticated dish almost everyday. No limits of repetitions, you will be surprises by their friendly spirit.

Every now and then you stay at a hostel that just feels so welcoming, this is one of them! The property is actually well located (it's really only a 10-15 pleasant walk into central town) and the area is completely safe so that walking home late at night isn't an issue. The free breakfast is great and freshly cooked with... More
