Reviewed 14 December 2012

I stayed at "La Casa del Tio" two nights and I definitly enjoyed it. the staff is very friendly and all the rooms are clean and well taken care of. the hostel is worth its more than moderate price.
Thank you very much!

I traveled to Guanajuato in a group of 10 students and enjoyed just about everything about the Casa del Tio. The rooms were well kept, the bathrooms were clean, the wifi connection was good, and the showers generally had warm -- but not quite hot -- water. The hostel has an extremely friendly staff and a beautiful rooftop terrace. Breakfasts were somewhat small but certainly nothing to complain about given the incredible price of the hostel. The location is perfect for the beautiful small town of Guanajuato. I recommend it!

The hostel is quiet, cozy and comfortable, just as any hostel should be! I heard Guanajuato was an outstanding town, and I'm glad I picked it as a stop on my journey. In the hostel you have a wide choice of rooms, from cheap privates (180 to 200 pesos for a double in low season) to even cheaper dorms. Beds are comfortable and clean; in the men bathroom
you have 3 showers and 2 toilets (pretty small, but they're alright) and it's always clean. The kitchen is not very big, but it has everything you need (even the fridge, you only have to ask for it as it's not located on the 2nd floor).
I enjoyed the company of the staff and of the people I met there, and it's really in the heart of town, you can reach any place in only a few minutes of walking.
If you are visiting Guanajuato, don't miss it, it'd be a shame ;)

The Hostal is in a great location (just off from Teatro Principal) but many other features such as kitchen (no fridge nor utensils) cleanliness of showers etc. lag behind the other hostels I've been too. It's on ok hostel, not great but ok. As well, there is a lot of street noise.

When I was here it was pretty quiet, maximum 6 guests at the same time and I was alone in a dormitory. Three showers for men, more than enough now, but not enough when the hostel is full. Showers are very hot, toilets very small, beds are good, it's a but noisy from traffic, very small boring breakfast, staff not very inspiring, great roofterrace, very good wifi everywhere in the building and on the roof, beds made up every day, the laundry machine they offer doesn't work, no fridge to leave your stuff, you can use their kitchen, big lockers in the dorms, but enough for everyone. A very good location. The pro's and con's average out.
