Great staff very friendly helpful and knowledgable. The hostel is NOT a party hostel, it is geared up for people who like to adventure and may be getting up early, consequential not full of drunken disrespectful idiots.

We had a great stay at the hostel. The free breakfast is great eggs and beans and the happy hour deals are an added bonus :)

Be aware that they DO NOT honour hostel world deposits... Meaning you have to pay full price anyway when you get there. Nice place to stay for a night or two, no vibe really, good location, no kitchen, nice tv area.

O.X. Basecamp in Antigua not only fulfilled, but exceeded my expectations! The hostel is placed in a perfect environment, it takes only minutes to walk wherever you want to go. It is clean, warm and welcoming and I even got a lollipop when I arrived! The volunteers are very helpful and the free breakfast was so yummy. I remember sitting every morning at the table, having great conversations with fellow travelers and hanging out on the awesome terrace in the evenings.. Simply loved basecamp!

Great stay here, nice chilled-out vibe with a good crowd. Lovely crew who worked there - special thanks to Rosie and Sylvia for putting on a fun Thanksgiving dinner for all of us, Maribelle is a star and Ox tours were brilliant for my hike up Acatenango Volcano. Would stay here again!

I stayed in a dorm at Basecamp. The beds and bathroom facilities are basic, but the hostel has nice touches: Rooftop garden, 'chill cave' with Netflix, ping pong in the courtyard. Pros: Cool staff, A+ location, tasty tipico breakfast. Cons: Hot water theoretically available in showers, but never worked (only an issue in winter), a bit noisy (music played from circa 7AM-10PM). Be mindful of the trek schedule—trekkers will all get up around 5:30 AM to organize their things. Bring earplugs!

The staff and atmosphere of this place is awesome. Everyone, immediately, was insanely friendly and it truly did feel like a mini home away from home. Keep it up, you guys, you're so awesome.

Stay was awesome! We came in late and staff were there to greet us! The location is great, and the staff were super helpful with great restaurant and activity recommendations. Cleaning lady was around every day keeping the place clean! Great rooftop patio! Pink pong table inside and netflix were great when we were waiting out a thunderstorm!

Lovely relaxed hostel with friendly staff, unfortunately when we stayed there were some issues with toilets. On waking early one morning to hike a volcano, the only toilets had been accidentally locked up or were out of order... Leaving no toilets and some very desperate people. Wifi was also out of action for a day or two while we stayed. The staff were very apologetic and kindly did not bill us for a night of our stay.

The staff are super helpful and friendly. Everyone is keen to ensure you are having a good time. The hostel attracts a great crowd of travellers. 1 of 2 bathrooms were down when we arrived which was inconvenient; however, the owner gave everyone one free night as a result. The hostel offers Netflix, free breakfast, and great recommendations around Antigua. Happy hour with cheap beer from 5-6! Awesome hostel! I would definitely stay there again!

Call/email ahead about tours. I did the double whammy and it was totally worth it. Bring a headlamp if you can. Front desk staff and volunteers are very nice, very friendly. Suggestions: bunk bed curtains for the 4 bed dorms, mark the key for the hostel door in some way so it's easy to identify from the dorm room door. Be considerate! Shower in the shower only room, and avoiding occupying one of the bathrooms that has a toilet in it.

Had a ball, not much - if anything - to fault here. Location, facilities and vibe was perfect. Staff were amazing (Nat & Rosie, legends!), damn friendly and extremely helpful. Extremely clean & Netflix was a godsend for the night off boozing. Would stay here again for sure.

Great hostel. Already planning our return. Stay here you won't regret. PS. not a party hostel which is what I wanted. A little more chilled out but still lively which is what we wanted. Thanks guys!

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!
