Overall you have and enjoyable stay. The owner is extremely knowledgeable of the area (we draws his own maps) and willing to help. The balcony of our room had a curtain of leaves, and makes you feel you really are in the middle of the "huasteca" jungle. Breakfast are excellent, produced with local food. Their own sustainable coffee production pays... More

Good place to stay at, good staff. The gentleman owner was very nice and always accomodating and taking care of us. His wife could have been a little more friendlier. The rooms are nice, on multi-levels (everything on Xilitia is on a hillside) with lots of vegetation; weather was a little cool, and there is no heating in the place;... More

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

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
