If you're in one of the private rooms, you can hear the TV blaring from the restaurant kitchen. The shared bath from one of the private rooms require that...

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...

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...

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.

I went to Guanajuato with a friend for the last Cervantino Festival. As this was spontanious we were glad to get a room. At least we had a bunk bed on our own: in the same room was a double bed, occupied with 3 guys. This was still fine, as the whole beautiful city was crowded because of the event....
