“Excellent value for this centrally located, quiet, clean, friendly hotel.”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

After travelling around Mexico for 3 months, Guadalajara was my last stop before flying home. At this point I had experienced everything from four star resorts on the Pacific coast to grungy backpacker hostels with shared bathrooms. In terms of centrally located hotels in large Mexican cities, this place is a gem! I was warmly welcomed by the owner Alejandro (his grandmother was Olga). He and his staff were very informative and he helped organized a tequila tour at very good value - much cheaper than the ones offered in the tourist kiosks and lots of fun. I stayed in a private room off the courtyard but they also have a very bright dorm room available at a very good price.
It is a very safe place, with a staff member on hand 24 hours a day. Also great location - you can walk anywhere easily: the markets, central squares, shops, pedestrian malls, restaurants, etc. etc.
I highly recommend Olga Querida and will definitely stay there on my next trip through Guadalajara!

Room Tip: The best rooms are probably the two rooms off the private courtyard where you can sit and read but f...

I found this hotel on trip advisor and I am so happy we stayed there. We spent 4 nights including the new year. The room we had had a decent amount of space, a balcony, and a great bathroom. The internet worked everywhere we were in the house. The location is good...close enough to everything but fa enough so you can a quite night of sleep. The family that owns it are Mexican but have lived in the US as well. Everyone, including the children can speak English but if you prefer to practice Spanish they will help encourage you. We we invited to celebrate new years eve with the family which included diner and all of the traditions. It was great incite into their life and we felt like family by the time we left as well. Highly recommended.

The original owner was Olga hence the name; the hotelliers are Mexicans who have lived in USA with other family in Canada, bilingual family, gave us an extraordinary Xmas eve as we were invited to join their family for dinner, fun, gabbing, etc. WONDERFUL children, bright bilingual fun and helpful. Location was great for carrying out shopping, sightseeing, eating in the historic centre of Guadalajara. And even our dog Tex was quite happy and well received. Loved the art work on the walls (originals not knock-off) and the quaint courtyard. Use of kitchen was really a blessing. Many thanks to kids and Erika for helping me translate some work for a committee. A gem of a place!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the double bed on the ground floor that is not on the street.

Staying at Olga Querida was like staying at long lost friends or with family. They were so helpful and charming and made us feel at home. So much so that we have got plans to come back and stay!
Rooms are clean, spacious and well decorated, the location is only 10 mins walk from the historical centre of Guadalajara and 3 mins from the nearest subway station.
Best place we have stayed at in terms of welcome and hospitality! Recommended!

Room Tip: The best room was the one at the back of the patio on the first floor with a balcony and its own pri...

We went in this hostal during las fiestas patrias. It is very well located. Everything is new because the hostal has just open. The family is very nice and kind and can give you good informations to visit the town. There was a misunderstanding on the reservation but they accept us and add immediatly a bed in our room.
Breakfast was a bit light but ok.
We really enjoyed to stay there, we felt like at home.
Nice quiet patio inside.

Stayed for a few days and loved everything about it. nice rooms for a reasonable price. The dorms are absolutely the best looking dorms I have seen.
Run by a english speaking family that are ready 24 hours everyday to help and assist you even after you have checked out.
