The staff were great and the Hostal was nice and clean.


Stayed in a 4 bed room, it was very small. Other then that, very good hostel and amazing staff. highly recommend.


Excellent location, right near the main square as well as all the nightlife just a block away. When I was there, didn't seem to be the kind of hostel where you make friends, people seemed to be doing their own thing. The rooftop patio is closed later in the evening and there's no bar or anything there to encourage socializing. Great place to stay, perhaps look elsewhere for that social hostel vibe.


Super quiet, but not very social, people only sleep there, they dont hang out. Other than that its top notch


Loved the fast wifi, quiet location, good security, bathrooms in the quad rooms and comfy beds. Excellent value!! Close to breakfast spots so no problem that it is not included.


Room was super clean and tidy, comfy bed and quiet location, but room too small, it was ok for there was only me and other sharing a 4-share, but more than that will be too tight. Kitchen and the whole patio outside the kitchen, which is good for hanging out, exchange conversation between guests is closed at 9pm, and not allowed to enter after that, WAY too early. The male staff at night shift was a bit cold.


The management , the lady at the desk, is a very sweet and helpful person. Even the security guard is pleasant and helpful. Lovely place and really well kept up. Good kitchen and eating area. I was very happy there.


great staff, very friendly and helpfull, good value for money especially if you book in advance


I had a pleasant stay at this hostel. The staff are very nice and helpful.


It was good, clean and secure, but extremely boring. I would recommend it to my parents, but not to my friends. I don't need it to be a bar or a disco, but it would be nice to at least be able to drink a beer in the terrace. However, the terrace is closed after 9 pm :-/

A good place to stay in Antigua but definitely not a party hostel.


Great stay! Recommended.

Very nice, clean, 'quiet' hostel, with average staff and in a great location. Little on the pricey side and really more of a hotel than a hostel. Four bed dorm was a bit of a squeeze but the ensuite was cleaned daily and sheets changed every two days. All-in-all if you want a quiet clean place, with easy walking distance to the sights, and don't mind paying extra - this could be your place!


I love this hostel. Great location. Very secure and clean with cable tv in the rooms. I stay here every time I come to Antigua.
