    I stayed at this hostel multiple times during my trip in Guatemala. It is one of the cleanest hostels I have ever stayed at. The staff is really nice and helpful with anything I needed. It is a quiet and relaxed hostel. I really am happy I chose to stay here and will choose this hostel again if I ever return to Antigua.

    This is a great hostel with very clean rooms and bathrooms and there are curtains on each bed and a big locker too. The staff is really friendly and what would’ve made the hostel even better would be a full kitchen but they did have a microwave and refrigerator which is good enough. This isn’t a party hostel and is a chilled place where you can relax and do some work and meet a few travelers but not too many. Overall, I’d definitely stay here again

    The staff is fantastic! Location is great and the rooms are clean. Rooftop terrace is a big bonus as well! Only minor downsides, is the wifi wasnt great in our room (not an issue if you buy a cheap local sim card though) and the toilet isnt super private. Other than that we loved our stay and would definitely come back!

    A decent gaff. Double private was very spacious and nice. Wash room facilities were clean. Roof top terrace was very tasty! Could see Fuego exploding in the evening 👀 Also free coffee on tap was a nice touch.
