Excellent staff helped us organise so much. They organised a taxi from the airport straight to the hostel. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great hostel!! Amazing breakfast - you got a restaurant style menu to choose from. They pack you a sandwich if you are leaving for a tour early morning as well. Good rooms. Very clean. Clean showers. Loved this hostel! Would just like them to give more elaborate directions to the hostel as one can be dropped off at the centre by a shuttle.

Good location, excellent / super friendly staff, amazing breakfast, fair price. What else can you ask for? I think it's the first time I rate a hostel 100%, they are totally worth it.

Nice hostel with very helpfull and nice staff (saludos a Mario!), you can organized your trip to Chichi, volcanos, Atitlan etc. from the hostel. Hot showers, very good breakfast included (you can choose from 10 proposition), clean rooms and comfortable beds. Only problem is the noise from the bars all around (but this is Antigua!) and, unfortunatelly some of the guests, if they spend time in the patio. So - ears plug recomendable. And the prizes..., it is not so cheap.. but again, this is Antigu

We stayed here at the beginning of our Guatemala journey and we liked it so much that we came back in the end of it. It is a few blocks away from the parque central but that is not a problem because right next to the hostel are a lot of nice restaurants and bars. The service is really good here. They offer a lot of tours but it's the same price (or cheaper) as if you book it at a booking office The included breakfast is awesome and the staff is friendly and helpful. 10/10 would come again

Highly rated on hostelworld but i have stayed in other hostels in antigua which are much cheaper and just as good. Nothing bad to say about the place other than the high price. I enjoyed my stay

El Hostal was a great place to stay in Antigua. Staff was super helpful. Our room did not have a window, but otherwise the facilities were amazing. I would definitely stay there again.
