    By far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. A social hostel with loads of solo travellers but not a party hostel - the perfect place to base yourself before and after the Acatenango hike. The best view in the city from their rooftop. The staff are so helpful and really go out of their way to get to know you and offer suggestions in order to make your trip the best possible. Wonderful location - everything in Antigua is within walking distance and the area felt so safe. Kitchen is well equipped and always

    Honestly this is my favorite hostel ive ever stayed in.. the only two things I'd comment on are that the showers are curtains so you can't 'lock the door' and the mattresses seem quite work. Otherwise just fantastic, easy with tour booking, staff that remember your name, close to everything, nice and quiet, great rooftop area ..

    We loved our stay here. The staff are super friendly and always around to help. We really liked the rooftop and even saw feugo erupting on a clear evening. The kitchen facilities are some of the best we have found in Guatemala. It’s super clean and has a great atmosphere all round.

    We loved this hostel so much! For us it was on the higher end of how much we wanted to spend but it was worth every penny! We had a private room which was so lovely. The staff are all so welcoming and helpful, the vibe of hostel is so chilled with lots of cute hangout spots including the incredible rooftop terrace. It’s location is perfect, just outside of the centre but only a 5/10 minute walk. We would definitely recommend staying here!

    My friend and I found the receptionist to be quite passive aggressive when we wanted to chill in the hostel whilst waiting for our next accommodation, making it apparent that all my previous interactions with her were fake. Not the worst thing in the world, but it definitely kills the mood, and from previous hostel experiences it’s not the way I have been treated before.
