The house is great, larger than I expected and the view from the roof is fabulous. The hosts are quite accommodating and their cafe next door is an added bonus. San Miguel is a great place to walk so don't be put off by the short stroll from the house to the center. A taxi back costs only 30 pesos.

The location is pretty good, but be prepared to walk over narrow sidewalks and cobblestone streets for at least 20 minutes to reach the Jardin. However, that can be said of virtually all houses in Centro! The house was reasonably spacious and very clean. The furnishings were spartan: there is one dresser that suffices for one person. If there were two people, it would undoubtedly be too small. CONS: Do not expect to do much cooking with the stove. The gas burners are woefully inadequate even to boil a pot of water for spaghetti or cook up a stir fry; you will be waiting a LONG time for the pot to heat up. The oven also does not get hot enough to cook a pizza, for example. The mini-fridge works well enough, but the freezer compartment is tiny, so keep that in mind when you go shopping. Most Mexicans buy fresh veggies daily so maybe they have less use for a larger freezer. The cooking utensils are the cheapest possible stamped steel; I wound up purchasing a small sharp knife (which I left as a contribution) so I could cut tomatoes, etc. There are plain wood chairs in the kitchen with no seat cushions; these get uncomfortable after a few minutes. The bed is fine if you are short. I'm 6' tall and there is a metal headboard and footboard keeping you squeezed in with no margin of error: I had to carefully line myself up throughout the night otherwise I wound up smashing painfully into the headboard. The house was dark, with undersized lightbulbs used so you could just find your way around the house but not actually read anything; I had to purchase larger-power lightbulbs at my own expense and substitute them in the kitchen and bedroom so I could actually read something after dark. I suppose the owner wanted to cut down on the electric bill. The bathroom sink merely let out a trickle of water. I finally removed the screens that were supposed to aerate the water and that slightly increased the flow, but it was still very low. Don't let the above dissuade you from renting, though. It's a good location, right next door to the Buen Cafe, with convenient tiendas within a few feet and down the block, plus a nice fruit store 3 blocks away. The neighborhood felt very safe, with families out and about till after 10 p.m. It can be noisy; the cobblestones cause passing cars and trucks to rattle along, the gas truck blares its incessant insipid tune to call attention to its presence, and occasional loud street noise, but again this is typical of most Mexican street life. Finally, the owner attempted to charge me for gas AND electricity when the agreement clearly said I would be responsible only for gas. The rent is low enough to compensate for the above annoyances, but I did want to point them out so you know what to expect.
