1. Smooth Check-In 24 hours before
Do you remember those times at the check in where you feel completely done after your [insert all things that make you tired when traveling, example: long bus ride]? You have zero energy to smile to the host of the hostel while he or she takes too much time for you to check in?
Say goodbye to that now.
Casa Pepe Puebla has THE best solution. Check in is done by the guest itself around 24 hours before entering the hostel. You may also check out all hostel information beforehand as well, in case you already expect that the level of tiredness at check in doesn’t allow you to listen or smile to the host.
After you smooth check-in, and after you took some time to look around (great entrance!) you will be able to install yourself in your room. Casa Pepe has several room options, all suited to the needs of the traveler at hand. At the moment of writing, Casa Pepe Puebla has just opened its doors and all is neat and feels ‘so fresh and so clean’. In the (unlikely) occasion that you are not satisfied with your stay, one of the hosts will be 24 (!) hours at your disposal to answer your questions in the best way possible. Yes to no curfews.
There are also a couple of touch screen displays where the guest itself can find information on the hostel and the neighborhood. Super convenient for the moments the hosts are not available.
2. High-Quality Dorms
Now, a little more about the rooms
The website itself says that “Casa Pepe offers an alternative stay adapted to the travelers looking to live unique experiences. You will have incredible rooms. Focused on showing the Mexican identity in the best way, making you feel at home”
We can second that!
The (mixed or female) dorm rooms have two-level bunk beds, air conditioning, individual reading light, USB connection, black-out curtains, mini security locker, a bathroom (with shampoo and conditioner!) and individual lockers inside the room. Now, travelers: can we ever wish for more? The only thing that perhaps needs more improvement is that only the reception has access to the air conditioning remote control.
As every experienced traveler knows, this is most likely to make sure the Air Con is not running 24/7 on 14 degrees. Also, arguing with your fellow dorm-mates about the room temperature is a serious mood-killer.
Just ask the reception in case there is something wrong with the AC. Simple, really.
Good to know: Not all dorms do have a window. Personally, we prefer having a window in the dorm room. Please ask the reception for a dorm room with a window. Even better, mention this in your reservation.
The dorm rooms are located on the first floor, where all the fun stuff happens (duh!).
Biggest plus: you don’t have to carry your backpack upstairs.
The dorm rooms are next to an open spacious high ceilings, colorful square with its perfect comfy sofas to chill with your (new) friends, hang out or work. The Wi-Fi speed is great, unlike some other hostel spots in Mexico with poor internet connection. Yes, first-world problems, but internet can be essential. Casa Pepe Puebla therefore is a great spot for the digital nomads.
This hostel in general more for Digital Nomads and Female Solo-Travellers.
Although the hostel can feel quite colonial and big, you will easily find your way around. The signs at the entrance will guide you to the breakfast room, restaurant and bar, the different dorms, and finally the game and TV room. The restaurant is called “La Cósmica Pulquería restauran”.
Game room? Yes, game room! Did I already tell you that Casa Pepe Puebla offers free coffee and filtered water to its (dorm room) guests?
This definitely makes Casa Pepe stand out from other hostels #hostelvibes.
There is also a weekly schedule showing all great and fun activities throughout the week. Definitely try out the daily walking tours as well as the 50 pesos happy hours! And if this isn’t enough yet, you can join the Casa Pepe Puebla WhatsApp group, and you will have all info at your fingertips.
4. Food, Food, and Food
For our sleepy travelers: the daily walking tour starts around 10:30 AM.
Want to get a bite in before? You are then welcome at the bar and restaurant for (a premium) breakfast before that time. Casa Pepe Puebla will make sure you will not leave the hostel hungry. They offer a great variety of food which is a combination between Western and Mexican food. In the evening the restaurant is open for an Asian fusion dinner which will not disappoint. The same goes for the hospitality of the chef, who comes by your table to check if everything is ok. Great service!
This is very unusual for a hostel, isn’t it?!
There are not a lot of hostels that offer a restaurant, and certainly not one with great food and is still open when you check in after your long travels. One thing that we as travelers don’t appreciate is going into town to find a decent restaurant after our long travel. The thought of that, alone, makes us tired.
Good to keep in mind is that this hostel doesn’t have a kitchen. For food, you are either dependent on the in-house restaurant or you need to go out for dinner.
A kitchen is usually super useful. Yet, the restaurants are typically so affordable, it’s not worth it to cook your own meals.
5. Free Walking Tour and Secrets
Joining the walking tour, it will walk you through the Bohemian and picturesque alleys that surround Casa Pepe Puebla. You will walk pass the cathedral (considered a World Heritage Site!), stroll around Playa Zocalo, visit the El Parian and the artist neighborhood Barrio del Artista. I’ve heard travelers skip Puebla as they have this misconception it is boring, but this ‘city of angels’ is definitely worth a 2 days visit.
Don’t forget to add the Paseje Historico del 5 de Mayo to your to-do list, which is known as the secret tunnels of Puebla. The tunnel was only discovered in 2015, and it is said it was used by the Mexican Army against the French invasion of 1862. The tunnel will eventually lead you to a spectacular viewing point over the city, which you don’t want to miss. And if you still have some time left, then the Biblioteca Palafoxiana is a place to wander into history.
Both Casa Pepe Puebla as the city of Puebla will not disappoint. Probably the owners of the hostel are very much aware of this too. They’ve put the checkout time at 12, so you have plenty of time to sleep in or discover more of the town in the morning.
After enjoying one of the best hostels in Mexico, the country has so many more things to offer. Once again, we did the legwork for you.
