Great B&B, centrally located
I spent a week at this B&B and couldn't be happier. B&B is in a great location in the gay area with safe walking to many shopping areas, plazas, museums and churches. I walked solo at all times around this area and enjoyed myself.

Is the neighborhood "sketchy"? It's not a mid-western American city if that's what you are expecting. Guadalajara has a lot of poverty, so just use common sense. The people are very nice and helpful, but for the most part they speak very little, or no English. So knowing SOME Spanish is very helpful (almost a necessity).

Food is very inexpensive and taxi's a cheap and secure. After a few days of walking around, I found that I didn't need taxis very often because I got to know the lay of the land and was able to walk almost everywhere around the B&B.

The owner was very helpful in terms of suggesting itineraries and talking about the ins/outs of being solo in that area of Guadalajara. He even suggested me taking the local bus to Zapopan, Tonala and Tlaquepaque plus a tour of a couple distillaries in Tequilla. These are all highly recommended afternoon/day trips. He knows the area well and has great suggestions and very detailed maps to follow.

He also knows lots of other cities in Mexico and has suggested trips to them as well.

For me, Guadalajara was an adventure to get away from the mundane, neatly manicured tourist cities. My goal was to hang with locals, eat local foods and use my Spanish - which was exactly what I got.

The owner made my experience so enjoyable, that I will definitely return to Guadalajara and stay at his B&B.
