    I never planned to stay in Antigua as long as I did but 90% of this was because of Maya Papaya. A super clean and beautiful hostel with lovely staff and guests.

    Best hostel in Central America for me. This place is amazing. Since I have stayed here for 5 or 6 times already, I know it quite well. It feels like home to me, which is difficult to find when you are travelling all the time. The staff is amazing, always happy, help me practice my Spanish and so much fun. Beds are super comfy. You have more privacy because there are curtains. The showers are clean. Very centrally located. And the breakfast is great. Will be back soon.

    I absolutely loved my stay at Maya Papaya! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the dogs were an added bonus :) By far the best bed setup of any hostel I've stayed in (I was in an all-female dorm). Common areas were great, especially the outdoor area! Can't wait to go back to Antigua and stay in this gem of a hostel again!
