We are new to the hostel business, so we hope to learn from your travel experiences, while at the same time showing you how we've adapted the environment of a backpackers' hostel to the particulars of Mexican culture. If you come here, we will surely spend many hours on our rooftop patio overlooking downtown Puebla, talking about our respective countries over coffee or tea.
