Location is good, close to a nightlife area. The hostel has firendly staff, there is a large kitchen and a large commom area in a varanda, where is easy to meet new people. There was a bar right in front of the hotel, so there was loud music on friday nights.

I stayed here for about 6 weeks while I took a Spanish course. My room was cleaned daily, very spacious and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful (thanks Charry) and there is a great roof top balcony to hang out.

I stayed in a private room on the second floor for a couple nights around Thanksgiving, and I´d definitely choose this place again. When a hostel is good like this place, a private room in a hostel is the best of both worlds -you get to socialize with other people, use the kitchen and do laundry, and still have your...

We were here for 4 nights staying as a couple in a private room. First of all, the place is in a good location for the city. Great to base yourself to explore, with walking distance to Guadalajara cathedral about 10-15 mins, depending on your pace. Shops and bars just round the corner make life a little easier. The staff...

I stayed at Vilasanta while attending 2 weeks of intensive Spanish school. The place is very clean and the staff is awesome. The industrial kitchen is great. I have a very restricted diet and so it made life much easier for me. You will have your own giant basket to store your food in the large industrial refrigerators and also...

The entire property is decorated and kept just a beautiful as can be. It is centrally located and a quick walk to downtown shopping and cathedral areas.
