Staff is super friendly, and speak some English. Great deal for the price. Also, there's bar and grill on site. It's nothing special or glamorous. But, the rooms are cheap, and the service is great. The bathrooms and showers are shared. The pillows are kinda flat. If you're picky about pillows I'd bring your own. Other than that, this is...

When I stayed here I was quite struck but the laziness of staff. To start, there was often nobody at the reception, especially in the morning (after the time the reception supposedly opened) and most importantly on a day I had to leave early. And breakfast? What breakfast? The first morning, I was up later than a big group and...

I had an amazing week in this hostel.. You will feel at home very quick. The ambiance is very relaxt, the people who are working there are amazing, very helpful and friendly.

Has great potential but needs more attention. Most of the staff (except Fernando - he was incredible helpful) were not that helpful; they didn't know how to get to the airport except by taxi or where the closest supermarket was. The dorm room was clean enough; it felt like the sheets were only changed randomly. Kitchen available and solid internet....

Well actually I have been very disapointed about the hostel, I was struggeling if to go better to Hostel Tequila or that one, but the recommendations and Fotos were quiet good at Blue Pepper Hostal as well. So I think if you don´t want to go to a good hostel it could be ok. I have been around 10 days...

I was very happy with the Blue Pepper Hostel. The property was very clean...even the bathrooms/showers and the common area patio. It was also very safe due to its neighborhood and 24-hr reception. The price was good: <300MXN for a single room with a shared bathroom. I can't comment on breakfast or the kitchen as I ate out for all...

We had a great experience staying at the Blue Pepper hostel! The staff is very friendly and super accomodating - our bus arrived hours early and they let us check in no problem! We loved that you could make a reservation online without payment, and you could make adjustments as needed at no charge. We also loved that they offer...

Blue Pepper is a very nice place, probably one of the best I have stayed in Mexico. What makes the place special? 1- good location: 10 min walk from Guadalajara historical center 2- close also to bus stop from or to the bus station ( bus 709, 12 pesos). 5 blocks or so 3- fully equipped kitchen 4- dorms with...

I had an awesome experience with the Blue Pepper. The staff was friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean, and my roommates were considerate and cool. The location (being so close to Chapultapec) is awesome, and the shared rooms cost less than US$10 a night. On Saturday we all went out together and everybody was nice and welcoming. Definitely a...

Stayed here a few nights. Good vibes, helpful and friendly staff, stocked kitchen, but cooking items are welllll used. No drinking water available so everyone had there plastic bottles and jugs every where which made it a bit hectic. Nice common areas. Nice location as well.

“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.”
