    Honestly, if you’re in Antigua this is the place to stay. Everyone here is amazing that I struggle to put how much of an insane time I had at this establishment. 500 characters isn’t enough. Party? Yes! sneaky trip to the Lake for relaxing? Yes! Warm shower and a comfy bed? Duh! Anyways, what I’m trying to say is there isn’t a reason to not come here and indulge in a mucho Bueno veggie burrito and a place to call your casa.

    Doozy koala was a perfect stay! Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable with also your own private space, food was great! I really like the idea of having a tab and paying at the end as it’s less stressful, until you accidentally have 30 beers.... the staff were very accommodating, friendly and didn’t feel like staff but more as friends. My stay was short and wish it was longer, the atmosphere is chilled out during the day and night is a great way to make friends.

    Everything is designed around you paying money at the bar. Frustratingly so. Apart from the blatent ways to force you to pay, its a good hostel.
