We just stayed two nights in a private room at the back, good value and fantastic location very close to the main square. Wifi worked well and we booked a tour to Cholula through the hostel where we ended up with our own guide for the day who was great.

The dorm room on booking.com says it's a ten bed dorm - it's not. It's a 12. I politely mentioned this to the staff and he didn't seem to recognise that there was a fault, instead he became very rude. I wasn't expecting anything other than an apology. The breakfast was very good. The dorm smelt. The towel had huge...

I struggled with how to rate this one. I stayed over the weekend in a private room upstairs, overlooking the courtyard. Pros: The location is perfect - right in the historic city center just a few blocks from the Zocolo. The staff were friendly and helpful whenever I had questions. It is a beautiful building, nicely decorated, with rooms along...

This is a nice hostel. The rooms are nice but pretty functional. Breakfast was adequate. The communal area was nice to hang out in and Internet was fast. The best thing about the hostel is it's location near the centre of Puebla. A taxi costs 70/80 from the bus station.

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...

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...
