“Great little hostel with central courtyard”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

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 feeling sick, they offered to boil hot water for us to make herbal tea. A man whose name I forget also suggested good places to eat. Double room are not big but clean enough. Breakfast included. For a double room, this place is value for money and recommended.

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. The location is perfect if you want to explore the centro historico. It’s about 5 minute walk from Zocalo; ATM an Oxxo also really close. They serve breakfast, it’s not the greatest one, but it’s included. What I didn’t like was that they have some kind of kitchen, but actually nobody was using it and I’m not really sure if it was for traveler’s use.

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 very friendly and extremely helpful. Good wifi.

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. Complimentary breakfast included coffee, cereal, toast and jam, and fresh orange juice.

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 is a place downstairs, that sells tacos (but we didn't try it).

The only bad thing was the noise - the courtyard has a very unfortunate acoustics so if people stay there until late, you'll get no sleep, especially if they get a bit more noisy. The night staff didn't seem bothered at all.

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.
