Here are a few hostels in the downtown area that have kitchen facilities and look like they fit your budget:

La Casa del Tio
Hostel Casa del Angel
Hostel del Truco (not sure about the price)
Hostal del Campanero
Casa Bertha

Let me know if you have other questions about Guanajuato. I'd be happy to try to help. I've lived in Guanajuato for the past 6 years.

Hi,

Look at any news kiosk around town for the weekly newspaper called "Chopper". It has lots of rentals in the classified section in the back. It comes out every Saturday and is often sold out by the following Wednesday.

You can also look on the internet for "Guanajuato rentals" or "Guanajuato vacation rentals", though what I've seen listed on most web sites are more expensive than what you want to spend. Read the web sites carefully as many are listings for rentals in San Miguel de Allende and not in the city of Guanajuato.

Ask the employees at your hotel or hostel if they know of any short-term rentals. Also, look on bulletin boards around town (especially in internet cafes, coffee shops and places around the University) and on telephone booths for advertisements.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask.

Good luck and have a great time!

Travel Tips for Guanajuato

TECHNIQUE FOR WALKING UPHILL

by vaticanus

I learned this trick about walking up hills from the shepherds of Wales. Most of us waste energy while climbing steep slopes because we never straighten the legs. The knee is always bent. This means the weight of our body is supported by the muscles of the leg. Bent legs never gives the muscles a chance to relax. This technique shows you how to transfer your weight onto the bones in your leg which relieves the leg muscles.

The trick is to straighten out the hindmost or trailing leg by pushing the knee back so it "locks" and the leg is fully extended. You will experience a "settling-back" feeling as the leg bones "lock" and take the weight. This momentairily shifts the weight of your body onto the bones of the leg- allowing your muscles to relax. - these brief rests add up when going up a long or steep hill.

The hill must be steep for this trick to work. Guanajuato offers plenty of opportunity.

a Mexican city with a European vibe

by aaronrd2104

When packing for Guanajuato, don't do as I did and throw all your grungy backpacking clothes in a bag. Locals here definitely dress to impress. The men generally wear very stylish jeans and a nice button up shirt with a scarf. Women can be seen in very slinky dresses or tight jeans and boots.

The underground streets

by ephobius

What a labyrinth! This is a really impressive experience. This postcard shows some of the large and somewhat spooky underground streets of Guanajuato City. Cars and people go by them since long time ago. Many of this passages were built more than 200 years ago.

You can't miss the chance of try this maze! ...and best of all, it's totally free!

Guanajuato University

by lucyguajardo

The old University of Guajanuato has a very interesting arquitecture. Is very original and to get inside you have to go up a lot of steps, when you go up you feel like you hike a pyramid..
:)

Been in the top the view is one of the most beatuful coz you see in the other side the mountain with the "Pipila" monument and all the city with its little houses.


The University still have a lot of students that are actracted by the beautiful city. There's a lot of art students at Guanajuato

Mummy museum

by jungles

This is a very popular destination for visitors to Guanajuato, but be warned it can be very disturbing for some people. Many dead bodies in varying states of preservation are on display, including those of children and babies. There is one mummy of a woman who, judging by the position of her body, was apparently buried alive, then later woke up in her coffin and tried unsuccessfully to force her way out.
