My wife and I just spent a month living in Room #2 at Casa de Dante. We are in our early 70s, two or three generations older than many of the international travellers who flock to this remarkable place. Our double room was big and comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast that Elena and her crew prepare each morning is... More

Other travelers have raved enough about this place that I'll add a few notes of my own. I got one of the best (if not the best) private room: number 8, at the end of the hall on the top floor. It has floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading onto a private balcony. One downside is that half the view is of... More

Good points : 1. Very well decorated and designed 2. The dorm room is very spacious and clean. 3. There are three separate bathrooms in a 10 beds dorm room which is more than enough. 4. Tailor made breakfast everyday!! 5. The first hostel I stayed which provide a bath set (towel, body lotion, soap, and shampoo ) Bad points:... More

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at...Dante and his family are super helpful and friendly (Dante can book you bus tickets from the front desk). His mom is a fantastic cook, everything looks and tastes gourmet, and is served in their colourful kitchen, where you sit around the table with other guests. The breakfast is... More

This is really the hostel of your dreams - felt a little bit like home. The hostel is managed by a very nice man named Dante, who always smiled while providing the very detailed explanations about the town. I really liked talking with him and getting his advises. The room was very cozy, had great decorations on the walls and... More

I've been staying at Casa de Dante for over 10 years now. It is a quaint place up on a hill, with an amazing view of the city. Something about the terrace that brings peace and serenity. Hands down the best breakfast you can find in town. Irene is a wonderful woman and the best host, she is caring and... More

ホテルに着いてすぐ、メキシコらしい可愛いデザインにビックリ。 その後、ベランダに向かうと街を一望できる素晴らしい景色に感動。昼も夕方も夜も、何もせずベランダで時間を過ごすのもオススメ。 毎朝手作りの朝食も無料で頂け、日替わりでメニューが変わるので飽きずに食べられて大満足。 一つ欠点を挙げるとすると、ホテルが 高台の上にある為、街中を観光した後長い階段を登ってホテルに戻るのが大変。 何はともあれ、このホステルをオススメします。(数泊してCentroへ移動もあり) At first, you will surprise when you were in the room, it's so pop and cute. You can feel Mexico. And then you went to balcony, the view from balcony was so amazing. It was so good time, just sit down and watch the town. Free breakfast was also good. Menu was changed by...

We came to Casa de Dante based on recommendations from other travellers and they weren't wrong. Amazing views, best breakfast ever, comfy beds, free towels and water and huge lockers. There are not enough toilets when the dorm is full and the wifi is pretty sketchy but otherwise it is a total winner. Even the 162 steps up Callejon Zaragoza... More
