Great staff, nice atmosphere. Most people wanted to make new friends and have drinks at night. However, it was really quiet at night, so no problems to sleep. Awesome breakfast! Try the huevos rancheros

This is by far the best hostel that I have ever stayed at. It has a great atmosphere, everything is clean and the showers are always hot. The breakfast was delicious. Everything was just great about this hostel; I have no complaints. I would definitely stay again; I wish I could stay at hostels like this every time I travel.

Lovely staff, who were so helpful and kind. The set-up is beautiful and comfortable with the open area in the centre. Included espresso coffee in the morning would be appreciated, but this is a minor complaint. The huevos rancheros more than made up for it!

Very impressed with this hostel. Nice dorm beds which are made for you every day. Fast internet. Like 10 options on the free breakfast plus a drink. Staff are very friendly and professional. One of the best hostels I've stayed at in a very long time!

We had a very good time there. The Hostal is well located, close to the good bars & restaurants. You can easily go to "El Parque Central" by walking 5 minutes from the hostel. The hostel can also plan for you shuttles leaving from the hostel and going in all the country, even more (Belize, Mexico or El Salvador...)

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

Great breakfast, good rooms and nice courtyard to relax in with other guests. This is my second visit and I would highly recommend it over other hostels in Antigua that I've stayed in.
