5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My friend was sadly a little ill when we arrived. The staff especially Guillermo the proprieter were very helpful in making sure he was being looked after. The location is close enougf to everything but far enougf to be quiet. The community breakfast albeit simple was fine and a great place to compare notes with other travelers. I would stay there again. Great value for the price.

Room Tip: Chocolate has no window but high cealing...and a fan. Plus the door opens onto the courtroom if you...

Overall Casa del Sol is good place to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location whilst a little out of the way is central enough. The room was clean. The breakfast was sufficient. My only real complaint is there weren't enough showers/toilets for the rooms with shared facilities.

This hostal is in a great location, about 2 blocks from Santo Domingo church. In typical a Mexican building, the rooms centre around a lovely courtyard where breakfast is also served. Coffee/tea, toast, fruit and cereal is on offer.

We had a private room which was connected to the dorm but not ensuite. The female shared bathroom was kept very clean and our room was serviced each day. It was quite annoying having to walk through the dorm early in the morning or late at night in case we disturbed people but the hostal did make us aware of this before we booked. The room itself was fine but it was VERY hot in there. We did not open the window at night as the hostal itself is on quite a busy road so made use of the fan provided.

Wifi only seemed to work in the courtyard. Staff were friendly and very helpful. There is always a member of staff present until around 10pm at night and the hostal itself seemed secure.

Baggage can be stored with them until 9pm if your flight/bus is not leaving till later in the day. However, there is a charge if you wish to use the bathroom after checkout.

Casa del Sol didnt disappoint and met all expectations raised by previous reviews. I extended my stay twice so was moved around a bit and able to "try out" three different rooms - double with private bath, double with shared bath and dormitory. All rooms nicely appointed with added touches for coziness and athestics. Everything, including shared baths, spotlessly clean. Very quiet. Lovely common areas including kitchen and sunny internal courtyard. Free wifi which was reasonably fast and very consistent. Staff were friendly accomodating and knowledgeable. Breakfast included in rate and was pleasantly adequate - fresh fruit, cereal, bread and jam, tea/coffee that sort of thing. Location in the historic centre very convenient to all attractions and easy walk everywhere. Also very safe - access from the street kept locked and staff members on site all day ad night. All this for less than $US40/night. Great value for money. I would stay here again.

This was the first place we stayed in Mexico, and the friendliness of the staff was never surpassed anywhere else. The people who work here will go far out of their way to help you find anything you need.

The common courtyard is beautiful and creates a sense of community. The facilities and rooms are clean and new. And the location is perfect-- just far enough from the main Zocalo to be quiet. I enjoyed my stay immensely!

This place is beautiful with a wonderful terracotta courtyard and nice flowers. The rooms and bathroom were also very clean and well decorated. The value is phenomenal we were a party of 5 and payed 160 pesos per person. which is about £7 per night. The breakfast was a joy; fruit, cereal, and toast were perfect in the gentle sun. The staff were also very helpful. The location is also ideal only a 5 minute walk from the make catherdral yet situated on a quiate street. Stay here.

Room Tip: dorms are very comfortable, and spacious.

Having tried many, and I mean MANY hostels in Mexico, Casa del Sol still rates up there at the top, hence my having stayed there 4 or 5 times. For comfort, location, tasteful decoration, friendliness, cleanliness, peace and tranquility then you cannot beat this hostel. Guillermo is the consummate host and his team will make sure your stay is hassle-free, relaxing and very civilised. The only drawback is not being able to use the kitchen after 6pm, but if you ask nicely there is sometimes some flexibility. Other than that, this is hands down the best hostel you will find for miles. Muchas gracias chicos!! Arlo
