Excellent 3 night stay. Beautiful balcony to sit out on and enjoy the lush surroundings and the birds. Try to visit Xilitla on a Sunday, market day, and Haupango dancing and music on the plaza from 1-5. Las Pozas is amazing. Great bus ride from Queretaro through the Sierra Gorda.

Just as a visit to "Las Pozas" is a unique experience in the Sierra Gorda, so is staying at Hostal del Café. A comfortable & colorfully decorated hotel in the true "Mexican" style. Alejandro is a great host and his wife Dalila serves one of the most authentic breakfasts in the "Huasteca". They gladly exchanged our room for one with... More

We stayed with my wife in past March. We were very excited at the beginning, the staff was really kind and helpful. The hotel is surrounded of plants and the rooms in several levels. We chose Galatea Room and we were out to meet Xilitla. When we come back the room was completely wet, the floor and walls, our nightmare... More

We really enjoyed staying here, The owner (Alejandro) was very helpful and friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The hotel itself is beautiful, decorated in a traditional manner and built into a hillside which affords lovely views. The garden is leafy and relaxing and includes a patio where breakfast is served. The breakfast was tasty and fresh and the coffee... More

Very authentic place to stay when visiting this area. Owner/manager (Alejandro) is very honest and helpful. Highly recommended. Breakfast was tasty. Common area was very cozy. Made me feel like I'm at someone's house. Good vibes. Rooms are clean.

Xiltla, Mexico has many hotels but Hostal del Cafe is unique and offers a wonderful opportunity to rest and relax. The hotel is made up of the main hotel rooms and several cottages built on a rocky mountain-side. Beautiful, and well cared for plants, surround the grounds. It's like being in a jungle. The cafe offers a terrific and authentic... More

I stayed for one night with a friend in this lovely hotel. The owners are the ones that manage the place, it is actually their ancient home. It is an old traditional Mexican style house up on the hill with a lot of vegetation surrounding the rooms. The rooms were clean and comfortable. No T.V. as they are trying to... More

The exterior to this fine hotel does not do it justice, we were simply blown away with the friendly welcome and attention to detail. The hotel provides an oasis of charm and peace,we were amazed at each turn, the hotel is built into the side of the mountain and the rooms are on many levels. Our room was appointed to... More

Alejandro, the host is very friendly and knows a lot about the area. You don't need a guide book, he tells you all. Ask him any time - at breakfast or in the afternoon, he takes his time to advice what's best for you. The hostel it's self is good located close to the center of the town. Every room... More
