“Amazing hostel”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I stayed in two hostels in Guadalajara and Blue Pepper was by far the best. The building is nice and modern on the inside. Great outside patio area for eating, drinking and relaxing. Beds are comfy enough. The owner Alex is great and knows his stuff about Guadalajara for clubbing, food and transport. I didnt do any but they also organise tours for you. Has a pool table, PS3, movies and cable TV. Good variety breakfast and a big kitchen for cooking your own stuff. As others have said bit far out from Centro but theres a heap of frequent buses nearby and its close to the trendy Avenida Chapultepec which has great bars, cafes and restaurantrs. If I´m in Guadalajara again I´ll be staying here.

I was among the first customers and staff was great, offering us a clubbing night.
rooms are comfortable and clean, the bathroom was comfortable and clean too. the breakfast was very rich and good. the hostel is quite far from the city center: 20-30 minutes by walking, but we didn't search for buses. anyway it's next to the boulevard chapultepec, the heart of guadalajara's party. I advice it absolutely!

I spend nearly a week there. I was so much fun. Both the guest and the employees was really nice, and there was a nice community feeling at Blue Pepper. I joined the arranged tour with them, it was a nice way to see more of beautiful Mexico.

Awesome hostel. The guys are super friendly, great fun, up for a good time and helpful. I ended up staying for an extra few days because I liked the hostel and environment so much. As did a few others that I meet there.

Room Tip: I had the all girls dorm with an ensuite, the room was huge for just four bed. Sunny room

I really enjoyed my stay at the Blue Pepper, mainly because the receptionists and guests were a lot of fun to hang out with. I enjoyed the environment so much that I stayed inside of the hostel much more than I usually do when I travel, though I was able to meet other backpackers in the hostel to go tour around the city with. If you are planning a trip to GDL by yourself or with friends, make sure you rent a room here.

The hostel itself is super clean and offers the basic amenities you'd expect. The location--right in the trendy SoHo-ish part of town and well connected to the other parts--is what makes the hostel really stand out.
