This hostel is in a classical colonial building which has a nice swimming pool and a nice common area. The dorm room was a bit cold for me but it was spacious enough and it was with a big ensuite bathroom and I was satisfied with. The staff was very friendly and useful as well. The location, however, for me... More

They gave us a great introduction to the city (with map) explaining all the good sites and things to do. The hostel itself is well equipped, clean and has good common... More

Great location, short walk downtown or to the markets. Nice and quiet and very clean hostel with breakfast and a swimming pool. All of the staff become more like friends than staff and they are very helpful with directions or ideas. I have stayed 3 times and i highly recommend hostel tequila

Hostel Tequila has become my go-to place to stay on my relatively frequent trips to the area. To say it's a great place to stay is an understatement. I have friends I could stay with in Guadalajara for free and I still usually end up booking a night or two here. Why? Because they have become my friends. And I... More

We got to hostel tequila and they were expecting us - which is always good. Plus they gave us free beer on arrival. Our private rooms were great - two single beds and one double, all of which were very clean. We had a wardrobe which was quite good - this way we didn't have to keep everything in our... More

The best thing about this hostel is the atmosphere. I only stayed for three nights, but felt like home right away. All members of staff were very nice and they helped me with my bus ticket reservations. Beds are comfortable and rooms spacious, but showers could be improved. They clean everything daily. Breakfast is great for a hostel. If you... More
