Great location. Nice staff. Compfy beds but squeaky. Has breakfast til 10:30 and wifi. Good place if your not looking for something fancy. They give you a locker and clean sheets. Cleaning is every 3 days.

I stayed at Santo Domingo Hostel in July 2016. I was in room 2 - a private room on the second floor. It costs 420 pesos (about $23). What a deal!! It's a huge, beautiful private room, with 2 beds, 2 balconies over the street, a private bathroom and a desk. The linen and beds were very clean. The floors,... More

The hostel is well situated and has a very charming central courtyard. However, all of the bedrooms are off the central courtyard so it can get really noisy, mainly (in our case) due to the staff playing loud music and shouting. The bathroom was clean but the pillows were a bit stained. Breakfast was average - toast and cereal -... More

The hostel is close to Zocalo, city center, and the bus stop (around 10 blocks). The staff is friendly. The beds are comfortable. The dorm is spacious although it got 16 beds in one dorm room. There were few lockers (may be 8) and not 16 lockers. So probably, other rest of the 8 people who walk in late might... More

The rooms were quite basic and the bunker beds old. There was no space to leave the luggage. The área was nice quite closet the city center and the catedral! The rooms were clean and the staff made it better since they were really welcoming! Breakfast was good :) Good and cheap hostel nothing fancy.

Nice hostal, nice and friendly staff. Good location, very close to the center. Good breakfast. They also have a kitchen you can use. The dorms could have more plugs to change things. There are only a few and is not enough for that many beds. Its a good place to stay

After a long trip from Taxco to Puebla, we were happy to find this hostel on one of the main roads - 4 Poniente.
