Lovely clean hostel with comfy beds, good showers and friendly staff. Location is good - you're nearer the nicer parts of town and it's good to have a break from the centre. I was only there two nights but there was no atmosphere - in my room people were obviously working in the day so in bed by 8.30pm. I wanted a chilled out break so that was fine by me but just a heads up that this is not a lively hostel if that is what you're after. Breakfast is nothing special - there's amazing cafes nearby.

Awesome private room that was really clean. Staff were super helpful - do the walking tour if you get chance. Nice vibe to the place. Would happily stay here next time I'm in BA.

It was fine for one emergency night. The rooms were really dark and dingy and needed maintaining. The bathroom in our private room had cockroaches coming up from the drain in the shower...The communal areas are fine but I would steer clear if you're staying a while.

Stayed to visit the falls. It was nice and clean and the staff were super friendly. I got sick whilst there and they were understanding and even when cleaning the room were quiet so I could sleep!

Regularly stay in IH hostels and this didn't disappoint - super friendly staff, great location. Dorm rooms of 8 were a bit cramped but other than that would recommend.

Whilst we were in a dorm room there was a leak which lead to us being awake at 3am with wet belongings! The staff were helpful though and moved us to a private room at no extra cost. Location is great and breakfast is good. I've stayed in lots of IH places and, although this isn't the most modern, it does the job.

Couldn't ask for a better spot in Antigua - staff were very friendly. We were in a dorm right behind the bar downstairs and underneath the bar upstairs, but they close the bar downstairs at 11pm so noise wasn't a big issue. The rooftop space was nice to chill out in. Had a good few nights here - would happily recommend. The showers are also good here, which is a huge bonus!

It's fine. Not the greatest place, not the worst place. The shower was very good and the rooms were a decent size. Not in the greatest location (but not a lot of hostels are in Moscow). No curtains in the 7 bed room. No real atmosphere. Fine if you just want a place to shower and sleep.

I had a fantastic stay in this hostel. The girl's 6 bed dorm is one of the best I stayed in! Huge bathroom, lovely showers and comfy beds. Safe storage as well. The hostel is located in a great part of town, lots of fun people about and the staff were super helpful.

The hostel is in a good part of town and is clearly very busy. The beds were comfy but the rooms were a bit cold and clean enough, but in comparison to other places I'd stayed weren't the cleanest. There are plenty of bathrooms and showers, which is a really good point. Staff are good and helpful with tours, etc.

I stayed here before and after doing the Lost City trek and it was perfect. Nice and chilled out during the day, pool in the middle of the courtyard. More of a party atmosphere in the evening (especially at weekends). Breakfast is optional but a good range to choose from. Near the beach and buses to Rodadero or Taganga. Beds are super comfy and have lockers. The staff are really nice and remembered me from before my trip when I came back. Ended up staying longer here than planned!

Can't say enough good things about this place. The staff were great, more activities to choose from than you can think of, perfect location, clean rooms, comfy beds, lockers for important items, two kitchen areas, balcony, great atmosphere...probably the best hostel I've stayed in whilst in SA.

The staff were very sweet and helpful, which was good as my Spanish isn't great! The hostel is very chilled out. There's hammocks to chill uot in and a nice simple kitchen area to use. It's very close to the main square and other facilities. Beds are comfy and the rooms are clean.

Very comfy beds and great showers! Really good location in terms of museums and bike tours, etc. Sophy is a great host. The dorms need to be silence after 11pm. I was woken up every night by people being really loud (this included people talking to a girl behind the desk at 4am!) Nice hostel, just bring an eye mask and earplugs!

The directions to get here are a bit rubbish, but once you actually get there it\'s clearly very new and clean. The staff were really good as well and it\'s location is pretty faultless.

This was the worst place we have ever stayed. There was only one member of staff who was even vaguely helpful. We booked a 3 person room and were split up. For the person a lone the room was filthy and the bedding didn\'t fit the bed. For the other two their room had a cockroach infestation and traps everywhere which hadn\'t been emptied or changed. The location is ok, it\'s only two stops away from the Old Town. We only stayed two nights and that was bad enough. I strongly recommend you don not stay here!

Brilliant location. Had a really good stay here, the only thing that might be good is to get ceiling fans in the rooms. Being in an 18 bed dorm does get stuffy...
