Nice little place. Our first hot showers for too long. Staff always helpful, and decent prices. Would go back!


Decent hostel overall. Nothing to rave about but not much to complain about - our double room was a bit cold and damp and the hot water in some of the showers didn't work (go for the bathroom near the reception). We didn't find the distance from town a problem at all and the staff were nice. Good WiFi in the downstairs area. Not that cheap, but then nothing in Antigua is.


Great option for those who are not trying to live where the party is. People definitely still have fun here, and the rooftop is an excellent place to gather, drink some beers, watch the sun set, etc. It's not the closest to the city center but if you don't mind walking, it's worth the calmner atmosphere and affordability. The dorm beds are a bit saggy, that might be my only real complaint. Lovely staff, small, but workable kitchen, good working toilets(!), and an easy atmosphere to feel at home

The hottest shower I have had in three weeks!! We arrived late in the evening (unplanned) due to transportation issues and the security guard met us at the locked gate/door and showed us to the room. The kitchen is fairly well-stocked and cleaner than some other hostels we have been at. All of the staff members we met were friendly and helpful regarding shuttles and directions around town. Will be staying here again.


Very good hostel, ..clean, safe and in walking distance to center.


Hostel was alright, though the staff could have been nicer. Other than that - one more bathroom on the second floor would do no harm, as there were queues quite often.


The roof top deck is the highlight of this building. Need to have somebody staff bar every night...even if it's for a few hours. Danielle is very knowledgeable regarding the area and services.


Nice, quiet place with a really cool rooftop view of the agua volcano. Perfect place for us to explore Antigua together.


A wonderful place to stay if you want something other than a normal party hostel. Very economic price and the staff are great and very helpful.
