The 18 bed dorm would be terrible, if it was full. This review depicts the probabable situation where its 1/3 full and theres lots of room and the 2 toilets + 2 showers are plenty. Big lockers, but cant lock dorm room. Need to ask for toilet paper - is given. You get towel + soap. Dorm is actually in 2 rooms, wifi is good but works only in the other part. No reading lights. Bed is good. Reception was friendly, but there was a Mexican hassle with laundry and couldnt pay with cc for some reason.

No toilet paper or hand soap in the bathrooms. The lack of toilet paper is annoying. The lack of hand soap is down right disgusting. No alcohol allowed. It's a hotel first, with 18 beds crammed in one room for extra income. There were really cool travelers there and it would have been cooler if the rules were set up like most youth hostels.

The location is good, but the place lacks atmosphere and feels a bit more like a hotel than a hostel. Probably due to the no-alcohol policy. The bathrooms in the shared room are a bit small and not so clean.

The hostel itself was great - free breakfast and comfy beds. The doors to the rooms didn't lock but there were good lockers next to the beds. Bathrooms were very open - the door to there from the dorm didn't close properly and the doors to the toilets were very small. Showers were okay. Mostly it's just that Puebla is not on many backpackers' routes so it's just very quiet, especially in the evenings!

Reception is 24/7, but different staff working and no one checks if ou actually stay there or not. Dorm room doors can't be locked, but have locker in it. Love the couches upstairs and breakfast is good as well. Staff helpful with questions and directions and have laundry service. Shower in female dorm room is a bit drippy and takes a bit to wash out shampoo and conditioner, also very hard to adjust heat. But very clean and they provide soap and towels.

Really big hostel with good common areas however no atmosphere whatsover even on weekends. No alcohol or smoking in hostel which is disappointing and a big reason it feels quiet. Beds are standard, hostel is clean and location is very good.

Very nice and clean hostal! Great location. It had hanging out areas but it wasn't very sociable there. I think its because not as many backpackers stop in Puebla. The only weird thing was that there were no keys for room doors, only for your lockers. You can find cheaper tours at the tourist information station at the main square than at the hostal. But I definitely still would recommend it!

Wonderful location, friendly staff, and a good value overall. My son and I used Hostel Santo Domingo as our base as we visited historic Puebla, Cholula, Cuetzalan and more. Highly recommend for all who enjoy the hostel vibe.

This was a nice little hostel really close to the zocalo and the staff were great! The only downside is there was very little atmosphere, it wasn't much of a travelly hostel which is fine for a couple of nights but if that's what you're looking for you might wanna try elsewhere.
