The location was pretty good, close to many bars and restaurant. Just 5 min away from Chapultepec avenue. Its very convenient that the bicycles for rent are just one block away, so i could use them to hang around. My room and bed was clean and the showers was a bit small but ok. The last day we had a...

Thanks for leaving some feedback about your stay. Unfortunately we cannot replace the "mother" or "father" of every client that uses the kitchen at the hostel and force them to clean after cooking. However we do have daily cleaning services to assure a well and functional kitchen. We hope you next experience with us will be more pleasant :). Kind...

I stayed here only for a night. The price is cheap but the beds were not good, it was very old. And the room was very hot that you couldn't stay in the room during the day. But it was at a fairly good location.

The hostel is located in a wonderful area of Guadalajara, very close to Av. Chapultepec with its bars and coffee shops. Great price for a clean bed. Only two bathrooms for the entire hostel and a few showers challenge patience and tolerance for messiness. Outdoor area is nice, but the place lacks of atmosphere. Guests are mainly long-term, either students...

Our private room with private bath was clean and a reasonable price without being remarkable. The staff were friendly and helpful without being remarkable. The location was good for the night spots but a long way from the Centro Historico (although an easy 20min bus ride). The kitchen was very good so we used that a lot. All in all...

Excellent choice for my one-week trip to Guadalajara and further trips. Closer to Chapultepec Avenue and downtown ammenities. Has very few options of tour. Friendly enviroment and very helpful staff. I definately can't wait to go back and stay a bit more.

I had a cool experience during my week at Blue Pepper. The hostel is two blocks off of Ave Chapultepec, a very lively and hip street full of cafes, bars, and places to go out. Everything I needed was within walking distance, which saved me money on taxis and public trans. Alex and Joe responded to me quickly, making booking...

“We stayed in the private double with bathroom and were positively surprised by a tv with dvd and a collection of movies that helped to survive a lazy, rainy afternoon. Windows came out to the street and you could here the cars but it was OK. Big wardrobe and nice bathroom make this room excellent for longer stays.”
