Really liked this hostel. I think the best part of it was the owner who was really helpful and attended to any of our needs. We booked a hike up pacaya and Acatenango through A Place To Stay as it was cheaper than anywhere else we found and we were not disappointed!

The place was nice and clean. The staff was friendly and they send me off with the bus in the middle of the night. They should put lockers, start locking every door and removing the curfew policy...

Hola! thanks for the review. We have added lockers to the dorm rooms since your stay. I am unclear on what is meant by locking every door, all of our rooms have locks on them. . The curfew is in place for the safety and comfort of all or our guests who tend to prefer a good night's sleep without being woken up in the middle of the night by people coming and going, we are not a party hostel and market ourselves that way. Thanks again for staying with us!

Really great hostel with amazing owners with their pet cats and rabbits. Very friendly and helpful throughout my stay and on hand to help out with any queries and questions about Antigua. Included breakfast is really tasty and lovely atmosphere.

The location gets sketchy well before midnight so I understand the seemingly harsh curfew policy but you might feel safer in the more central, touristy part of town. The dorm was crowded with no lockers, lumpy mattresses, and claustrophobic lower bunks. Only alternating breakfasts were interesting, otherwise its just pancakes or cornflakes and you could do as well or better on your own. The pet menagerie was entertaining but I worried about the rabbits chewing my charger! Nice family atmosphere.

Thanks for your review. We appreciate your feedback and since your stay we have addressed a number of your comments above so wanted to clarify our recent changes to the dorm room. We have gotten rid of the bunk beds and now offer a 4 bed mixed dormitory which is less crowded and no more lower bunks!! In our new format we offer 4 twin beds with 4 lockers which guests can use to secure their belongings. We also installed hooks on the walls for our guests convenience. In regards to the comment about feeling safer in the more central touristy part of town that is a false sense of security. In fact there are more robberies at the hostels downtown as they are targeted by thieves because they are tourist areas. We are located in a part of town inhabited by local businesses and residents and do not advertise we are a hostel on our entrance so we look like just another local resident (and we are!) which is one of the reasons we have never had a robbery in our 17 years in business. The other reason for our outstanding safety record is that we have a curfew and do not open the door in middle of the night. Most of our guests enjoy the curfew because they know they will get a good night's sleep, however for those looking to party I agree with your suggestion they stay in the more touristy part of town. Thanks again for your candid feedback.
