The hostel is in a great location. Close to the major attractions and close to stores, restaurants and bars. It's clean and comfortable. The common-area is a huge hall where also breakfast is served. Because that are is open to the outside (no doors) it gets chilly at night. The dorm-rooms are warm, though. The only downside of that hostel... More

Great location to enjoy the wonderful city of puebla. Short walk to the zocalo. Good breakfast. Great common area and friendly helpful service. We stayed in the 10 bed dorm for 3 nights. Comfortable beds, good bathrooms and hot showers in the dorm. Historic and stylish space. We would definitely stay there again and in a private room. Improvements being... More

I stayed 2 nights here from 16-17 Apr 2015. The location was excellent, near to most of the attractions and right in the downtown historic center. The staff were all friendly, able to speak English and provide you all the info. you need. The room was clean and roomy. The 10 bed dorm comes with bathroom attached which is very... More

We stayed here at last minute due to it being Easter weekend and it was the only place with a private room. For the price you pay you really don't get much. Not even a hello or a welcome from the reception staff! Didn't seem to want to help with anything. Pretty poor by any standard, when the internet didn't... More

We stayed here as a well located, recommended and clean hostel in Puebla all of which it is. However, on our unfortunate night, they decided to go at the sewage system in the courtyard right outside our doors (which lead onto the courtyard) at 12-2am in the morning. The noise was too loud even for heavy sleepers (I am a... More

Casona Poblana is located right in the city center; the staff are very friendly, it has a lovely patio and free wifi, the room was really nice too. Unfortunately our room didn´t have a window, so it got pretty hot inside and the air wasn´t very good in the room - on the other hand, there was no noise from... More

The location and the usually friendly staff are the only upside to this hostel. We had a private room upstairs and found the hostel unbearably noisy from 6.30 or 7 in the morning, when presumably people are leaving for their tours and the staff are arriving, until about 1am at night when the music was turned off and people finally...

This place is good. Excellent location, clean, staff is nice. Don't expect much from the breakfast - the fact that it is included is not really an added value (plain bread, jam, instant coffee and tea). You're better off finding a local place to eat around there. Unless you are an early bird, ask for a room that doesn't give... More
