    Stumbled upon Vagamundo after trying 4 other hostels in Antigua and this was by far our favorite - plus it was the cheapest & a private room! It’s basic but the staff is the best, super welcoming to all and willing to help you find anything you need. The whole place has a very artsy vibe and the bar hosts live music some nights, it’s close to the market, several nice coffee shops & a delicious late night munchie place next door, and the deck/pool is great.

    adequate party hostel. positive- if you want to have a party, cool place. areas of improvement- lockers outside your dorm room and the outlet in the room don't work well. But the lockers outside you can charge your phone. Kitchen is VERY basic.

    Funky, colorful, rough around the edges, not the cleanest. Cheap, but perhaps not great value. Bathrooms barely functioning. Small private room barely fit bed - with nothing else. Very uneven lumpy mattress.

    If you know what you are getting in to, this hostel is value for money. It was the cheapest place in town but it is easy to see why. In the evening the place turns in to a bar open to everyone with very loud music! Luckily the bar closes 11ish. We spent two nights there and the mornings was my favorite time. The place has a really friendly chef who makes great breakfast for free and a nice “patio” where you can eat, catch some sun or take a dip in the tiny pool.

    Totally understand you get what you pay for but I made a huge mistake staying here. Feeling slightly unwell and in need of some sleep I booked into one of their very reasonable private rooms. Reviews said music goes off at 11 but went on until past 12:30. Walls were paper thin so could hear everything from the rooms either side. Bed was horribly uncomfortable, bathrooms cramped and dirty looking so I didn’t even dare shower. Quite possibly one of the worst hostels I’ve ever stayed in

    There needs to be a massive change in the way this hostel is officially advertised. The hostel themselves need to express that this is a party hostel with VERY loud music and visitors/guests/workers that will rage on all night, no matter what night. No soap in the hand soap, no mirror in the private bathroom, bugs all over the room and the towel given reeked of urine. Couldn’t sleep all night due to the noise and ended up with dozens of bug bites all over my body. Cheap but pretty awful.

    The cheapest hostel in town and you get what you pay for. A basic private here is cheaper than some dorm beds in town. It really annoyed me though when I upgraded to a nicer private (100q) and then on the second night I had my girlfriend stay with me, upon check out they informed me it's 100q per person. Literally double the price for the exact same room if there's 2 of you vs 1. doesn't make sense to me. Best thing bout this place is the bar Electron next door, go have drink with the owners
