Property Description

El Hostal BnB

Our 100% family-owned and locally operated hostel is nestled in the colorful streets of Antigua, Guatemala. We strive to keep the rich culture of this historic city alive with our in-house tour agency and sustainable restaurant that serves fresh meals, smoothies and drinks made with care from locally-sourced ingredients.

Our warm atmosphere attracts adventurous travelers, humanitarians, musicians, artists, and friends. They come to relax and rest their heads in between climbing volcanoes, wandering the cobblestone streets, through ruins and colorful colonial architecture. They leave with their curiosity peeked about Guatemala, their stomachs fulfilled, and as a part of our family.

We have been crafting sustainable and genuine travel experiences for our global guests since 2007. We love sharing our local culture through our ecotours and our freshly cooked meals (not to miss our FREE BREAKFAST). Our botanical courtyard is the perfect spot to relax in a hammock, connect with our hi-speed internet, or make a new friend over a cup of coffee or a beer in our happy hour. View House Rules

    Very comfortable hostel in Antiqua within walking distance of the city center and all the bars and restaurants. They are very secure and we felt safe the whole time. The free breakfast was AMAZING (highly recommend the reuvos rancheros). Would definitely stay here again. If you want a private room, room 3 was great. If you’re looking for a fun late night bar check out Cafe No Se, which is a cool mescal bar that is locally sources.

    Overall it's a comfortable place to spend a few nights. However, when I was showering I saw a staff member looking through my pants pockets when he thought I couldn't see him. I confronted him and he claimed he was just admiring my headphones and left. Idk what else to say about that but just something to keep in mind while you stay.
