One of the best hostels I have stayed in.


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!


This was one of my favorite places in Central America!!!! And I backpacked through every country!! This place is clean, has great staff, and has a really good vibe!!!!! Also good food, drinks, and stuff to do on the terrace at night. You can even see fuego erupting in the distance!!! Definitely stay here!!!!! Oh and they showed game of thrones!!!! :)


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!


I ended up staying at The Terrace Hostel for about a week. The location was central and staff friendly and always helpful. The drinks were cheap, good food but limited menu, no issues with wifi and the free drinking water filters fantastic. The only negative was the lack of bathrooms - some mornings I waited up to an hour to use the shower.


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


Not the cleanest place, can be quite noisy because of the bar upstairs, but overall alright hostel. If you're looking for a party place you're gonna like it here.


I wasn't too keen on this place. I stayed there on a monday night which is pub crawl night. It was noisy, dirty and I was sharing the one bathroom the hostel had with all drunk expats who were partying on the terrace for the night. You can imagine how filthy it got! Good things about the hostel was the view of the volcanoes from the terrace and cheap breakfast. I moved to another hostel after one night and was much happier after that.


Nice hostel with an amazing terrace. Staff is really helpful and organizing a pubcrawl every monday!!


Loved this place! Stayed 2 nights - staff were really helpful and friendly. Dorms were nice, free wifi, and of course the terrace is a great place to hang out and meet others with an awesome view. I was there for beer pong night and seemed like it was THE place to be in Antigua - all the backpackers and expats etc were there. Awesome place and made lots of friends as a solo traveller :) definitely recommend!


Really fun place to be. Great people and the best burger in town. The pub crawls are a blast, and then you can nurse your hangover in the morning with a delicious smoothie while enjoying an incredible panoramic view of the city and volcanoes :-)
