Friendly staff, good beds, good wifi, great roof terrace. volcano tours with OX, really worth it.


Great hostel very helpful staff, great location and netflicks was an added bonus!


Although this is a self-proclaimed Adventure Hostel, you need not worry about the adventure of staying in the hostel itself. It is comfortable, safe, has a great relaxed vibe, and is really everything I could ask for in a hostel. All of the staff went above and beyond to be helpful, inclusive, and make sure I was having an excellent experience. Highlights include the new terrace with perfect volcano views, "chill cave", cheap beer and great company during happy hour, and comfy beds. Great place!

I honestly can't praise this hostel enough, these guys have it spot on. The staff are welcoming, approachable, fun and knowledgable, good at keeping the vibe super chilled which is great for when you have a hike at silly o'clock at the morning. Not a party hostel yet in no way boring. Such a great set up being able to roll out of bed ready for an awesome hike, even better to return and be able to chill with a beer and your new friends on the roof terrace! Can't recommend these guys enough!


The staff is simply great. They really know Antigua and can tell you the best places to go. The included breakfast is good. There are 3 bathrooms. All are very clean. The showers are hot. The rooms are very clean and quite spacious. Lockers are available. They have a rooftop terrace from which you can see all 3 Volcanoes. The ambience in general is really cool. Paintings, a couch, a Ping-Pong table, a chess board and THEY HAVE FREE NETFLIX. LOVED IT THERE!


Pros: * Friendly, helpful staff * Very clean * Really neat photos of local volcanoes on the walls Cons: Weird rules: * You must leave your passport as a deposit * You must not enter (or use) the kitchen * No outside guests Breakfast is provided, but not very much of it (a small plate of beans, eggs, and bread, with coffee or tea.


It was the best idea to stay there. Everyone was so nice! They are offering some greate hiking tours as well!
