A lovely hostel where Lucy is particularly friendly and helpful. Has a nice courtyard with a kitchen you can use. Rooms are good value at Q90 a night, though some dont have windows. Great breakfast included in cost where you have a choice from 5 options.


Stayed in a dorm the first night. Quite cramped not space to store backpacks. Only 2 electrical outlets and they were next to one person's bed. Only 3 lockers in the room and they were tiny. One of them was broken. Moved into a private room which was better. More room. Free breakfast was excellent. 5 choices. Free coffee too. Secure Wi-Fi didn't work. Connect to the free open Wi-Fi instead. It's decent. Location was decent. Short walk to the square but far enough to be quiet.


Very clean hostel with friendly, helpful staff. The free breakfast was cooked to order and surprisingly was one of the best meals I had in Antigua. My only complaint is that I had a private room that did not have a window, so it got warm and stuffy during the day. If you can get a room with a window, I am sure it would be fine, but I don't think I would stay here again due to the lack of ventilation.


Nice chilled hostel - we ended up staying again after returning from Lake Atitlan. There were a few of us staying here and for the most part we had the place to ourselves (it was low season). The breakfast is amazing - you can choose between 4 different options. The place was super clean and the staff were lovely. The only thing missing is perhaps some couches or something to lounge around on as all the furniture was table and chairs. The night security man is awesome.


Very accommodating and very friendly staff,

Very clean, safe and relaxed. quiet hostel for seasoned travellers not looking for party's etc. Wouldn't recommend if you're looking to meet people as it seemed like a lot of couples were staying here and most people kept to themselves. All in all a good hostel for quiet solo travellers or couples looking for some time away from the bustle of a party hostel.

The chap at reception is very friendly. The hostel is chilled, and the free breakfast is good. The 6 bed dorms shouldn't sleep 6 people, they would be full with 4 people, and only have 3 lockers. We asked for reception to book our stay at the next hostel, but he said he couldn't because of a policy, and sent us to the local shop which is a first??
