The Roof Backpackers opened in November 2014, in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco.

The Roof Backpackers is owned and managed by travelers who know what a hostel needs. We love hosting people from other countries to learn about other cultures, to make new friends, and to show them a little of what our country has to offer in one of the most beautiful states of Mexico, Jalisco, the home of Tequila.
Whether you in search of a comfortable dorm or a cozy private room, you will find what you are looking for at The Roof. Our rooms are clean, comfortable, and secure room as we have security cameras both outside and inside the hostel.

We provide various services including board games, laundry service (at an extra cost), towel rental, lock rental, TV with a DVD collection, luggage storage, lockers, high speed internet, hot showers, and a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your own food, but don’t worry about coffee, we will provide that. In addition, breakfast is included for the private rooms as well as a towel.

We are a friendly bunch and will do everything we can to make your stay here as enjoyable as possible. We can recommend restaurants, bars, day trips (and the cheapest and nicest tequila distillery), markets, beautiful churches, parks, and museums, or places to go dancing. We hope to see you at The Roof! Nos vemos en The Roof!

Prices are per person per night.
