Good location, cute hostel. Clean, great service, great free breakfast, wifi in rooms and common area. Hot showers, although shared. We were in 10 dorm rooms, and was just fine.

A relaxed place with good service. We stayed in a double room. Clean and nice. It's in the part of Antigua that is more relaxed, and not so close to the "fancy" restaurants, but still a short walk to the town square.

We really enjoyed our stay at El Hostal. It was the first place we lived in Guatemala and the staff was kind and helped us out with everything. The atmosphere was cosy and the breakfast were really good. Actually the best we had in Guatemala! I don't really have anything negative to say about this place.

We absolutely loved our stay at El Hostal. The rooms were clean, the staff were super friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were amazing. Would definitely go back here. The bathrooms could be better but they were always clean and laundry is very cheap, great location

There are so many positives about this place. 1) The staff is super friendly and helpful. Not everyone speaks English that well though. Perfect way to practice your Spanish! 2) The facilities are uber clean. 3) The breakfast in the morning has an amazing variety and is super delicious! The smoothies are also really great. So are the Happy Hour...

I've stayed at many hostels throughout central america and El Hostal definitely has some of the best accommodations in terms of comfortable bed, clean rooms, clean bathrooms, inviting common space, hearty breakfast, helpful staff with tips on how to get around Guatemala. Stay here, you'll be comfortable and it's a great home base for exploring antigua. Having said all that......

Very clean and safe, great staff, fantastic location close to the main things in the city. Very good place to stay and a good value in Antígua. Nice free breakfast with many options to choose. I was in a private room and the room was cleaned every day.
