I stayed in a private room on the second floor for a couple nights around Thanksgiving, and I´d definitely choose this place again. When a hostel is good like this place, a private room in a hostel is the best of both worlds -you get to socialize with other people, use the kitchen and do laundry, and still have your... More

Words can't describe how awesome this place is. Very affordable, clean, and really a home away from home! The staff are awesome, friendly, and just super people! This is my second stay here, and this is my home! Close in to everything there is to love in the old center of Guadalajara! Welcome home!

We were here for 4 nights staying as a couple in a private room. First of all, the place is in a good location for the city. Great to base yourself to explore, with walking distance to Guadalajara cathedral about 10-15 mins, depending on your pace. Shops and bars just round the corner make life a little easier. The staff... More

This is a great hostel and I met a lot of nice people here. Great when you are studying spanish because lots of people make an effort to speak in Spanish. The staff are very friendly and there is a nice outside sitting area. The use of the kitchen is great - very ordered and you get your own area... More

I stayed at Vilasanta while attending 2 weeks of intensive Spanish school. The place is very clean and the staff is awesome. The industrial kitchen is great. I have a very restricted diet and so it made life much easier for me. You will have your own giant basket to store your food in the large industrial refrigerators and also... More

No matter how rough my night was, they were there to cheer me up in every which way. They are some of the... More

Casa Vilasanta is the most beautiful and comfortable places I've stayed at. The central common area allows guests to visit and become friends. The entire property is decorated and kept just a beautiful as can be. It is centrally located and a quick walk to downtown shopping and cathedral areas.

Though not the cheapest deal in terms of dormitory bed (among other cities in Mexico), the dormitory bed provides standalone bathroom and room cleaning service everyday. The wifi is also strong. Please note that there is no breakfast provided in the deal.

This review is long overdue, (we stayed in March 2011) but I still remember being impressed. Loved the character of the this place. From outside it's jus door along a white wall, but inside its colorful and warm. We arrived early morning from a red eye flight, and they let us check in right away, to get some sleep for... More
