Very laid back hostel with excellent breakfast and smoothies. The staff was nice and accommodating. I agree with what others have said, the common area out back has a lot of potential to be set up a little bit better - when I was there, it was just a collection of plastic tables and chairs. Set up a couple hammocks, maybe a fire pit and some better furniture, it would be a nicer area to hang out in. Overall, I enjoyed my stayed at the hostel, decent location pretty close to the market.


Nice, clean and tidy hostal on the edge of the town centre. Staff are polite and helpful, standard of English varies. Breakfast is excellent. Atmosphere can be a bit lacking so not ideal for those looking to socialise... But lovely and quiet for those who value sleep. More like a b


All in all a good hostel to stay. Quiet, clean and a nice garden.


I've stayed in lots of hostel.This is the only one I don't recommend .kind of clean, and quiet.But the atmosphere there is not quite right ...couldn't feel joyful.the most important to me to most of travelers,I didn't feel that they were willing to help compare to others.Also, we asked for just waiting inside for few hours for catching the late flight.We got refused by the owner. We don't mind to pay some but not that much. Then they pushed me to leave even they knew it was cold and dangerous..

Enjoyed the helpful staff, central location, lovely artwork and good breakfast at Hostel Casa Jacaranda in Antigua.


Nice place to chill for a few days. I liked that is away from parque central but well located for the market and buses. I'd gladly stay there again!

Amazing location, staff and security (locked/monitored front gate)! Friendly atmosphere but not a party hostel. Included breakfast is awesome (5 different ones to choose from!) and there is an always full purified water jug I took advantage of as well with a reusable bottle. Beds are clean, warm and comfortable and front desk staff are very helpful. Great location - walk to everything!

lovely little place with 5 options for breakfast, surely a record for Latin America


We actually stayed there the 22 & 23 of September . We called the hostel and they were very accommodating in changing the dates. Loved Antigua enough we stayed and extra night which was no problem because it was low season. The included breakfast was good but not being too big. Left room to try lunch at one of the many restaurants. This hostel is great for those on a budget.
