    I don't even know where to start! My stay at Maya Papaya was just supposed to be casual, but it turned into my second home. I loved it so much, words can't even describe it. From start to finish, everything was perfect. Amazing dorms with super comfy beds, plus the breakfast and coffee was the extra bonus! Can't thank the team enough for making me feel at home and like family. Shout-out to Alejandro, Diego, Oscar for becoming my new friends and for joining me on the podcast!

    Loved my time at Maya Papaya! Diego & Alejandro & all of the ladies on staff were so nice and helpful. Literally my favorite meal in Antigua was the free egg breakfast at the hostel lol it is so good! The entire place was super clean and the bar had really great drink specials.

    The most beautiful hostel we've stayed in in our 3 month trip, everything is decorated so nicely! Loads of nice spots to sit and chill and beds are really comfy, you get curtains on them as well so get some privacy in the dorms. The hostel also has the cutest dogs!! Only problem is the lockers in the dorms really need to be improved as you can get into them from the bed above despite being locked at the front.

    Very comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, fantastic staff. For some reason I didn’t feel like the setup was most conducive to spontaneous social interactions as the social areas (though very nice) were all really spread out or were individual tables that felt like they set up for groups already traveling together - it could have also just been the people there when I stayed

    Really liked it here! Breaky was great, beds felt like heaven, cookie and coffee hour?! Yes please. Only thing was there was a miscommunication among staff about my extended stay but it was worked out and they gave me a cocktail on the house for the trouble. Class act. Room to watch flix, read and hangout, nice bar. Cute dogs. They’re doing it right. Thanks y’all :)

    The staff were very nice and helpful. Overall, it was a decent hostel, but the bathrooms could be a bit nicer. The breakfast was pretty good. The beds were comfortable, but the room got very hot at night. Overall, it wasn't a bad experience.
