Great little hostel 4 blocks from Pueblaś main square. Very big, clean rooms which are serviced everyday. We did not have a shower curtain which made the bathroom flood but that is not a big deal. Wifi only in common areas but is reliable. Staff will help but not go out of their way especially unless you persist. We met...

Very nice hostel, affordable for backpackers, clean. Great location in the city center. We have stayed in 6ppl dorm but we were all alone in the room :) there was a continental breakfast included in price (toast, coffe, milk and cereals). Internet weak in the room but pretty great near the patio.

As a solo female traveller with advice from my Puebla local friend (who was in Monterrey a couple of days, hence my desire to stay in a hostel), that there are so many hostels in Puebla you shouldn't even need to book ahead, I was caught out, and these guys rearranged things to give me a place to stay- saving...

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,...

This hostel was a huge let down, our room was for 18 people which had been split into 2. Our half had no plug sockets in the room at all, to charge anything you had to go into the main area where there was still only 2 plug sockets one of which was designated to the TV. The wifi was...

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 -...

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...

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
