The best hostel – La Casa de Dante
Located just outside of Guanajuato in Cerro de los Leones, the simple and affordable accommodations offered here make it clear that quality does not have to cost an arm and a leg. All accommodations have simple Mexican-style décor and there are dormitories with shared bathroom facilities as well as rooms with private bathrooms.
From the hostel, it takes about 15 minutes of walking to reach the city center of Guanajuato. The hostel is about a mile from the Jesucristo Church and Plaza de la Paz. Keep in mind that if you are walking towards the hostel, you have to climb no fewer than 150 steps. This means that those who are differently abled, families traveling with small children, or the elderly might want to look elsewhere for their accommodations.
