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.

    Loved it! The lockers under the beds were very helpful and the showers were warm. I did notice that the staff were not as helpful after you had to check out. They weren’t happy to allow the facilities to be used. But overall, it’s was great!

    This was a great place to stay where i felt good and safe. Do bring earplugs and eye covers to help you sleep because there is music until late at night, at least fridays. Good breakfast, free books, i liked it.

    One of the cutest and most comfortable hostels we’ve stayed at during our RTW trip. Definitely recommend! Also, be sure to check out the taco place next store; the chorizo tacos are amazing.

    Breakfast is good! A few blocks away from downtown. Lockers are provided under the beds. Having an all day bar is a major plus. No AC but the room has a fan. Wifi reaches the dorms. Towels were not provided even though the page states they do. Overall it is a good place for the price.

    I loved the way the rooms are set up. They have sliding drawers beneath the bunks that you can attach your lock to. I wish every hostel had these...they fit both my large and small backpack so I didn't need to move the "valuables" into a locker. The bar was good and happy hour was also good. A few blocks from central plaza. They also offer treks and activities right from the hostel for very good prices.

    Very Good

    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.
