I agree with the comments about the weird smell in the bathrooms, but it can be easily overlooked considering you won't spend much time in the rooms outside of sleeping, anyway. The staff was nice, the bar great, and my room was cleaned after each of the four nights I stayed (smell notwithstanding, of course). I'll definitely stay here again when I head back to Antigua!

Rooms very basic, but just need a place to rest your head because there's so much to do. Mixed dorm stank and I got it clean enough to breath. Dorm rooms have open windows pretty much anyone familiar with the place could get through. There's a GREAT bar on GREAT volcano-view rooftop patio open to public, which puts a lot of foot traffic past dorm rooms (day and night). Was a little rough to get shut-eye. Front door locks after hours with security guard. GREAT bar w/ GREAT FOOD across street.
Neither myself not the 3 people I was with enjoyed this hostel and we all moved after one night and would not have stayed at all except that it was very late at night when we arrived. There are signs advising you to lock your belongings but lockers are scarce. Shared bathroom on our floor was awful and I would not recommend this hostel unfortunately especially for the price. Antigua has many hostels and you can find better value for your money. The terrace view was awesome though.
fun party hostel, great food in the restaurant, public bar on terrace, lovely views, helpful staff
Serious lack of electrical plugs, which wasn't so practical. The staff and terrace balcony though, were both great. We would recommend giving it a go!
Thank you everyone for a terrific time. Raby- soooo great. Thanks again guys.
Bloody good!! Great staff and great times.
Clean and worth the money. Added perks of terrace hangouts and excellent views of the mountains. Highly recommended for an easy going 20-something traveler who is okay with a bit of noise around!
Terrace Hostel was good overall. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice, but basic. This is a pretty social hostel with many planned activities, which makes it easy to make friends. My one complaint is that the bathrooms could have been cleaned more often. They smelled fairly bad throughout our week long stay and were a bit gross.
The terrace hosel has amazing staff that makes you feel right at home and are eager to help you with your onward travel plans. Also amazing parties at night
Maggie was great, she helped us re-think our itinerary and her suggestions were right on. Maggie, if you read this, there is an great place for gravy and biscuits in San Pedro. The Blue Parrot is run by three guys from Maine and their biscuits are homemade. And we really appreciate your suggestions, the Mikazo is a wonderful place!
Very good hostel, amazing and super friendly staff. They have a roof terrace with a good vue on the vulcanos. Nice and clean rooms and bathrooms. Dorm 5 is a four dorm bed with a private bathroom. Nearby allot of nice places to eat and drink. Nearby they big cathedral, the market and bus station.
Staff is bored by its Job.offered tours are really expansive. Rooms are clean, but weird smell in the bathroom. Party hostel, quite expansive.
This is definitely a party-hostel which would be fine except that the hostel is managed exclusively by foreigners. Therefore many of the seemingly fun activities, like the pub crawl, are dominated by the westerner bar staff who have apparently travelled half way across the world just so that they can get drunk every night and not wear shoes.

Good stay. Amazing staff. The pub crawl is pretty fun. Good food. Only annoying thing was it seemed there weren't enough toilets / showers. Other than that the staff always went out of their way to help. Good atmosphere as a solo traveller
