    Amazingly surprised at the cleanliness and quality of this hostel. Stayed at a few others in Antigua and this is by far the best value for money especially for the private room. Would absolutely stay here again

    This is one of our favourite hostels we have ever stayed. It really felt like home. The rooftop is AMAZING. The bathrooms were so so clean and the bed was super comfortable. Tatjana is an amazing woman who really goes above and beyond to make everyone have a great stay. The hostel is a short walk into the centre and have suggested activities everyday. 100% recommend to stay here!

    Our whole experience at the Purpose Hostel was amazing. 11/10, would 100% come back here. Tatjana and her staff were great, had lots of local recommendations. Was very clean and had large security lockers to fit our 70L backpacks no problem. Best hostel we stayed at in Guatemala hands down.

    My first rating of 10 to my favourite hostel in the world ;) I’ve backpacked to more than 60 countries and have stayed at many hostels. This is the hostel that connected by heart and soul. Extremely clean, amazingly positive and sincerely friendly. I can feel the love and care from the owner Tatiana. She made me feel like home. I suffered from stomach pain and skin rash, she was always willing to help me find hospital snd doctor. The rooftop view is absolutely amazing. Great herbal garden !

    Such a nice and clean hostel right in the middle of town. Great amenities in the room, i especially liked the hanging thing next to each one of the beds so you can put your necessary things in there when you're sleeping. Great showers and lovely staff.

    The room was comfortable and clean. A quiet and peaceful sleep was had. All interactions with staff were very friendly and polite. The roof terrace is so nice to chill out on with beautiful views. The toilet and shower facilities were slightly cramped and lacked privacy. A great hostel, short walking distance from square
