This hostel is brilliant. The manager stayed up in order to let us in at 4am as this was the only bus we could get from san cristobal. All the staff went out of their way to get us all of the information we needed and to make our stay comfortable. Clean, light and airy rooms with big windows and... More

We arrived from Oaxaca at 4am and were let in by Marco who was waiting up for us. He tried to stop our taxi driver from ripping us off but you can't win 'em all... He helped us upstairs to our dorm with our luggage, all the time whispering and not turning on unnecessary lights and didn't make us sign... More

Stayed here in April visiting friends studying in the city, nice hostel very central to the city, it rained which made sleeping fine although I can imagine the dorms can get very stuffy in warmer months. I have never stayed in a hostel with such a powerful shower it was amazing on a weary, hungover body. However I did have... More

Pros: This is a nice, cheap hostal near to all the things in the Zocalo. You get towels upon checking in, which was good since we forgot ours. The area felt safe, and we slept well our two nights here. Cons: Our room didn't have a window to crack open, which made it stuffy at night. There is a fan... More

Love this place. Close to the Zocalo (city center) and lots of wonderful places. Tables in courtyard. Friendly fun conversation. Things well taken care of. Room adjacent to courtyard or off balcony upstairs. Restaurants nearby. Had a very nice private room. WiFi of course, like everywhere in Mexico.

The hotel is located on main street and very close to zocalo and some sights. No problem to go back late night. All receptionists spoke English fluently which was a big and pleasant surprise to us because most people we met in hostels and hotels spoke little or no English. Staff were very helpful too. When they learnt we were... More

I stayed in this nice hostel some days at the beginning of August. The staff was really friendly and helpful! The house is nice, with a sunny patio (where they also serve the breakfast) and a roof terrace (great place to meet other travelers). The rooms were clean. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm and it had its own bathroom.... More

The map on trip advisor, as it is currently, is doing the hostel a disservice. It is located on avienda 16 de Septiembre, 3 blocks from the zocolo, not out of the town centre as the map shows. Our room on the first floor could be noisy as the central atrium echoes quite a lot, especially at night. Staff were... More

We though this hostel was more like a hotel. We found it very good since we were a traveling couple and booked a private double room. The building seems to be an old house but the rooms are remodeled and fuctional. Is located in the heart of downtown Puebla so you find all major sightseeing’s and restaurants just blocks away....

The hostel is nice, clean and new and so are the rooms. Our double room had no window but it wasn't much of an issue. Wifi was strong even on the first floor, the breakfast is very basic, the shower is hot and the owners very friendly. The position is great, very close to zocalo, many colectivos pass nearby. There... More
