We wanted something central and at a reasonable price. I think we got what we expected. It is a ten to fifteen minute walk to the centre of Guadalajara (University Square) and buses run right past the door for US$ 0.50. The metro is three blocks away. The area may seem somewhat dowdy, (we arrived quite late at night when only the bars were open), but it's a typical blue-collar Mexican neighbourhood. We felt it was safe and didn't feel nervous walking about at any time.
The accommodations look really nice on the brochure, but need a slap of paint and some new hangers. The whole place is very clean and though there is nowhere to sit in the bedrooms, there is plenty of common space to pass the time. The breakfast is on the first floor in an attractive dining room/cum sitting room. Plenty of coffee and tea, toast, jam and cereals. We bought some cheese and ham from the OXXO store nearby to supplement the meal. We could have used the full kitchen had we chosen to do so.
What makes this place outstanding is the hostess, Lucy. She was extremely helpful, even bagging a parking space for us right outside the front door one evening while we were out to dinner. She lives there with her family, who are most charming. She's fluent in English, which is a big help. There's free WIFI throughout, and if you haven't brought your computer, there's a lap-top available.
All in all, there may be fancier places to stay. The premises is a trifle run down, but nothing a little paint and TLC won't address. Hopefully the owners will shell out a few pesos to bring the place back to brochure quality. We would probably stay here again.
Room Tip: There's one room facing the street that could be noisy. Ask for an interior room.

Delta welcomes us aboard at 2:00 pm in MIA and deposits us at 8:30 pm in GDL, and by the time we have passed through immigration and customs and bagged an airport taxi, we don't arrive at our lodgings until nearly 10:00 pm. Not to fear. Lucy, our hostess at the Olga Querida Hostel, …
