I can't speak about the hostel itself, but DON'T book shuttles with these guys. We paid 170Q for 2 shuttle seats to the airport leaving at 730AM and they just never showed up. We waited outside from 715AM until 830AM and nobody ever came. Tried...More

What a bummer! Although the Micheladas were good and a little spicy. The music is good but the place lacks more ambience.

First of all, assuming I have the right place, they are not a restaurant, at least not primarily. They are a hostel, a new one. My friend and I stayed here for a few nights. Here are some pros and cons. Pros: They have an...More

Roo's Hostal was created by a Guatemalan local and an experienced traveller who then teamed up to create a space where visitors can enjoy affordable food, drinks and a home away from home. The hostal has dorm rooms with upto 8 bunk beds each allocated a private locker and guess what!! Hot showers are available YEESSS!! Daily menu (Breakfast, lunch, dinner & snacks served all day). Beautiful rooftop sandy terrace yes I said sand!! The only beach in Antigua!! With a view of three of the famous Volcanos Agua, Acatenango and Fuego. We are also located a short stroll from many of the local landmarks. The market where you can find your souvenirs or fresh fruit and veg, La Merced Church with beautiful street food, the famous Arch or central park. Reception is open from 7.30Am to 9pm if you have any enquiries for tour or shuttle services. After hours we have a security guard from 8pm to 8am.
