“A wonderful experience! Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

It was an amazing hostel for a great price! I thoroughly loved my two night stay in La Casa de Dante. Dante and his staff were really friendly and always ready to help. I had a fantastic view from the bedside of my dorm. The balcony has an amazing view of the city. The place is clean, well kept, and the breakfast was a great start to the day. The only downfall for some to consider would be walking up the steps, but if you like a good workout, its awesome! Recommended!

p/s: Its really easy to get to the steps that leas to La Casa De Dante via local bus.

Room Tip: Bed 8 in the dorm has an awesome view.

I stayed at Casa de Dante while I was attending a math conference in Guanajuato. This is an excellent family run hostel that I would surely recommend. The family is extremely kind and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They put hand made flags of your country in the dining hall, they server delicious and creative mexican breakfasts, and they help you find your way in the city.

A colleague who had stayed before at the hostel recommended this place and he was totally right. The rooms are very clean and the decorations are very original (posters from cultural events, crafts, vivid colors, etc.). The owners also threw a party for our group when we were about to leave including a cake with math symbols!

I hope to stay again at Casa de Dante when I go back to Guanajuato.

One drawback is that there are some roosters and dogs from the neighboring houses that might wake you up.

La Casa del Dante is an amazing place built just outside Guanajuato. The place is well maintained, very nice staff for a hostel, from the balcony we had a great view. Dante is super nice and very helpful. If you don't mind walking up a few steps to the hostel it will definitely be worth it.

Staying in this hostel in Guanajuato for two nights was a great experience. The single room I booked was excellent with great views and the breakfast, freshly prepared by a lovely Mexican grandma every morning, was simply wonderful. The clean and colorful interior with many common spaces was very nice and allows for easy interaction.

This place exceeds hostel standards by a lot and is highly recommendable. The stairs and the 15 minute walk to downtown posed no problem to me, may however be considered one for travelers with physical impairments. I fully agree to the positive aspects fellow reviewers voiced on this platform and would stay there again when returning to Guanajuato.

What an amazing hostel! The view is breathtaking, the rooms are really clean and nicely decorated. The whole atmosphere is really relaxing and friendly. Irene and Dante are the greatest staff I've ever met, they made me feel at home. The breakfast is plenty, delicious, healthy and mexican. The hostel cost a bit more than others in Guanajuato, but it's worth every peso! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the city.

Stayed at Casa de Dante for a weekend for my boyfriend's birthday. This is a perfect place to bring your sweetheart. The view is dazzling both night and day. You get a full view of the city and surrounding mountains plus the stars. Our room (see room tips) had a deck and there are a variety of other public decks with plants, all charmingly decorated. The hostel decor is Mexican to the max, really colourful and cheerful. There are dorms here but the place feels like someone's home. It was a really quiet, courteous environment. The best part was definitely the breakfasts! We met plenty of other travelers while being fed to the gills by the hostess, a wonderful woman who feels like the Mexican mom you never had. She served us tasty fruit drinks, fresh fruit, the best cafe olla I've had, and really whatever you wanted to eat. We had great chicken flautas, cheese quesadillas, eggs with veg or chorizo, and chilaquiles! And she caters to vegetarians. The price is worth it for the meal alone! We didn't need to eat again until dinner. Only downsides: wifi only works on the main floor, it's about a 15+ minute walk to downtown, the infamous stairs (but a great reason to eat more!), and our bed was a bit hard.

Room Tip: Room #10 has a deck (non-private but no one else ventured up there) with a terrific view and plants...

We highly recommend Casa de Dante if you're looking for a place to stay in the beautiful city of Guanajuato. The first time walking up the steps to the hostel can be a bit exhausting, but you soon get used to it and the beautiful view of the city from the rooftop terrace makes it worth the climb. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and you could really tell that the hostel was very well managed and cared for with pride. Out of all of these things, probably the most memorable thing for me are the breakfasts; excellent traditional fare but with an inventive something extra that really made you take notice. For example one breakfast featured a huge molcajete of guacamole, quesadillas with queso and flor de calabaza and amaranth baked into the tortilla and a pitcher of a juice called "oro negro" which looked like used motor oil but was a delicious mixture of jugo de naranja y jugo de chico zapote. Just wonderful.
