    The Doozy Koala is the best!! Beautiful courtyard and the best atmosphere- there is an area to chill out or an area to cut loose, whatever you’re into. The staff is amazing- they were fully booked up when I showed up and went out of their way to get me a mattress so that I would have a place to sleep that night. The food is also incredible. I loved my stay here and will definitely be staying here again and recommending to all my friends!

    The Doozy was the best way to finish my trip. Staff are amazing, making sure your always content and make you feel at home. The hostel has a chillout vibe but also a fun party vibe at night time. Had the best 4 days here and will miss Antigua and the Doozy so much.

    Great atmosphere and very friendly staff who were happy to have a chat and help with anything. They make you feel at home! The dorm room was right next to reception/chill out area so difficult to get to sleep at times due to noise. The food was surprisingly really good! Good bar/drinking area out the back. The only negatives would be the showers were really dirty, a random local guy came in our room one night “looking for a room” and 10% fee for card payments is criminal.

    Doozy Koloa is the perfect place if you want to meet up with other aussies and kiwis if you are missing speaking your own slang. I really enjoyed my time there but a tour group came though and they caused a massive ruckus and it took them a lot to finally kick them out. I wasn’t too concerned by them but I knew others diddnt feel comfortable being there and left because of them. Everyone should feel safe in a hostel so it was a bit disappointing how much you tolerated their bad behaviour.

    Eeeek. First of all the dorms were empty. Not just unbooked but also the mattresses seemed to have been removed from most of the beds which was strange. Hostel completely lacked atmosphere and seems to be a little worn. Food from the restaurant was hit and miss, not value for money at all. On our last night we came back to find two random men asleep, in jeans, with no belongings in our room. Not ok when staying at one of the most expensive places in Antigua. Save money and go elsewhere.
