I really liked this hostel. There were nice people hanging around, well equipped kitchen, clean bathrooms and friendly people. Not in the centre, but in a nice street and good to walk. Highlight: the roof terrace. Really cool and chill place with a nice view. Dorms are okay, bed not the most comfortable.

Booking the hostel was easy with their online system and the owner helped me arrange a transfer right from Guatemala City Airport to the door of the hostel for a great price. (Side note: the driver was a delight and even gave me a little city tour as we arrived to Antigua!) I planned to stay there 3 nights, but...

This is a nice, cheap hostel with friendly staff and a very casual vibe. We stayed both in the dorm room and in a private double and the beds were comfortable in both rooms. Dorm could use some extra storage as people's luggage was all over the room and it was quite messy and crowded. Showers were hot with decent...

This hostel was really cheap (50q per night in dorm) and had a nice roof top with a view of theerupting volcano Fuego. Also a bar upstairs. I slept in two different beds, first one was horribly uncomfortable with metal strings sticking up from the mattress but second one was all good. The dorm upstairs had no where to put...

I planned to stay here 3 nights but ended up staying almost 2 weeks. The hostel is away from the hustle and bustle of the central plaza and don't in the middle of bars and other hostels. Amazing view from rooftop, some nights you can even see the volcano erupting! I stayed in both the private room and the dorm...

I've been to every country in Central America and I love this place. Popped into Antigua for 3 days and reserved all 3 here. Owner is super friendly and bilingual. You can walk anywhere in Antigua in 20 minutes. Super safe, security at night behind a locked door. Streets are safe near the hostel too. Walked around every night alone....

The beds were basic, in a bunk bed style setting. Nothing more to be said but there are not enough plugs in the room. A lot of the guests went to sleep early, so a little awkward when wanting to sleep yourself, especially on the top bunk. Not sure how clean the rooms were but the beds were fine. I...
