We stayed at Hostal Casona Poblana for three nights in May 2013. Very friendly staff, great location. Noisy at night in some rooms. No air-con but fan was sufficient. Good wifi connection and shower. Basic continental breakfast included.

I stayed in the mixed dorms for 2 nights while traveling through Mexico in late April. I left with an overall positive impression of the place. The hostel was clean, with a nice atmosphere, comfortable and easy to sleep in. There was a free breakfast, wifi/computers, and a rooftop terrace. The dorms are a bit crowded, but this was not...

I stayed in Casona Poblana only one night and I enjoyed the hostel and the city. The room (with bathroom) was nice and clean, the staff kind and helpful. Also the position was good, close to the city center.

This was a great hostel. We stayed for one night in a private room. The location is fabulous -- a two minute walk to the zocalo/centro historico. The building was beautiful, clean, and quiet. There was hot water, and the TV in our room had a lot of channels. And, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed chatting... More

In some ways, this is your average hostel. The 11 bed dorm in the front of the building seems a little crowded (the most crowded of any hostel I stayed at in Mexico), especially considering there is only one bathroom shared by all those people. Still, it had a nice atmosphere and common space. The kitchen was a little lacking... More

Stayed here one night in a 12 person dorm. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was a 12 person dorm. So if that's your thing... Bed was aight. No complaints. I thought the highlight of the hostel is the roof, but nobody else seemed to be using it. 3.5 stars.

We arrived in Puebla as a group of 4 adults and 1 child and we had a reservation for two rooms. The staff member who was there when we got to Casona Poblana was very friendly from the very beginning (and concerned about our comfort). It immediately made us feel good about the place. He also took the time to... More

I spent two nights here in my own room (double bed with shower and toilet in the room). The room was quite small, but that was all I needed since I was there to visit the town, not the hostel! I found the bed and pillows to be comfortable and I was warm enough (it does get cold at night... More

Great location - just a couple of blocks from the zocalo and cathedral. Helpful, friendly staff and comfortable beds, although the lower bunks are a bit of a squeeze - if you're not a midget, mind your head! Decent breakfast included - loved the freshly squeezed orange juice. Hostel is nice but would benefit from having somewhere cosy for guests... More

I will start this by saying I was only here one night, on my way to Oaxaca. I knew from an internet search I didn´t have much to choose from hostel wise on Puebla, and none with really any atmosphere, so I wasn't expecting much. So, that being said, here´s the review: Good: very close to Zocalo and bus stations,... More
