Great place for our arrival and first visit to Guatemala. The airport pick up was super helpful, great location and clean.
The hostel was cheap and clean and was in a perfect location. Staff was always helpful. Bathrooms and dorms were cleaned everyday I stayed. I also extended and it was a simple process. It's a very small hostel so there wouldn't be room for a bar. I guess this is more of a chilled atmosphere as many guests did not care to go out or socialize. (Although not the hostels fault).
Located just one and a half blocks from the central plaza this hostel features what you'd expect. Very clean rooms, hot water, kitchen, common area on the roof-top, stable and fast wifi. The staff is friendly and helpful with tours and transport. Security is good (keys to dorm and big locker, front-door closed at night). The foor-bed dorm is tiny but with some luggage-management it's ok. Over all a good place to stay for a couple of days. Recommend it.
Very pleased with this hostel - clean towels and a bar of soap daily was a nice surprise! Only two blocks from the main square and you can organise volcano pacaya tour from the hostal. Recommend :)

obsessed about cleanliness ! Staff appeared to be permanently cleaning the floor and rooms. staff were particularly friendly, especially Flore de Maria . roof terrace is pleasant & there is a kitchen I didn't use so I don't know how well equipped it was. The 4 bed dorms are very tight for four people had a bag in the room. However there were bag sized lockers outside the room . I wanted to change my booking a few days in advance but hostel refused until I said I'd review accordingly.
A good hostel near the centre of Antigua and with a strong emphasis on cleanliness. The staff are welcoming and pleasant. The dorms are on the small side and there's not a lot of room for 4 bags with 4 people in a 4 bed dorm. There are lockers for bags and separate lockers in reception for valuables.
As a lot of the other reviewers stated, this isn't a party hostel. Nonetheless, it's in fantastic place - especially in terms of its location and the friendliness of the staff. There's a great second floor terrace that unfortunately closes at night. It would be nicer if it stayed open as a common area. One of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in.
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 :-/
