It's one of the less expensive hostels, one block from the main cathedral. Clean rooms. My wife and I stayed in a two bed room. No AC being San Miguel Allende the day is warm and the night chilly. Only stayed for a night wish we had more time. Once you leave make sure you leave everything in place they... More

I stayed in the dormitory. It is very clean and pleasant. A good value for the money. Close to all the major tourist attractions. It is pretty quiet, which is rare in SM. It has a nice courtyard in which to relax. Very inexpensive for SM.

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm with only one more person. The bathroom and the room was clean, as well as the beds. The hostel is really quiet unless there people hanging around in the lobby, but no one stays long in the lobby in such a nice city. The shower was great and the staff very helpful. Cheap... More

This place is really good and cheap. I ended up staying in the hostel, but since it was only me and two others, we pretty much had it to ourselves. In total it was $330 MX pesos per person, for two nights, so the price was great. What was best about this hotel/hostel, is the location. It's right in the... More

Located just one block off the main square, this is a top-class hostel. Beautifully decorated dorm downstairs and everything felt very chic. Works great even if you're not a usual hostel owner, very spick and clean place for a cheap bed. Prices are rather hefty for a hostel (260 MXN for a dorm bed) but the location and service level...

Probably the owner is far away-the personal is bored and uninterested. One of our two bed had dirty sheets with many long dark hairs. The hotel is close to the central plaza and has nice but a little run-down rooms. Price is o.k. for this very touristic city.

I just came back from San Miguel de Allende, and I stayed at Hostal Punto 79. I was sharing a 2 queen-beds room with my friends, and we loved the place. Perfectly located (2-minutes walk from the center!), the room was nice, clean and spacious, and so was the bathroom. Also, the receptionist was adorable, very helpful. The only problem... More

“They have 2 parts in the hotel: a more "hostel" part with bunk beds, and a more "hotel" part with queen beds. I really recommend the second one. The rooms are nice and almost no difference in price if you're sharing with friends.”
