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... 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. The hostel met all our basic needs - warm water, breakfast, and safe and comfortable sleeping arrangements. The staff are very helpful in helping you plan trips around the city or helping you get around. They... More

We arrived in Puebla late in the evening, tiered after a long buss trip. Affordable rooms near the city Center had been difficult to find so we finally settled on Hostal Santo Domingo. Although the location was good, the. Room was less than satisfactory. There were no towels and not even a bar of soap in the WC. The bedding... More

The blankets keep you warm but the cold drafts are horrible. Theres no way to stop you breathing in the cold air all night. Bad: Freezing cold building- maybe made from... More
