    Loved this hostel. Tatjana and her team couldn’t do enough for us and were super helpful with tips, recommendations and bookings before and during our stay with exceptional communication. The hostel has a great vibe and ethos. Everything is clean and the team have worked hard to make the hostel feel homey. Incredible view from the roof terrace to the volcanoes and the central location in Antigua makes it easy to reach everywhere. We would definitely stay again and loved our time at Purpose Hostel.

    Douche chaude Rideau lits dans les dortoirs Personnel adorable et très attentionné Terrasse incroyable Hostel calme Très propre Peu d’intimité douche et sdb (lavabos dans le couloir principal) Mauvaise wifi (je pense que c’est aussi un problème de la ville et non de l’hostel en partiuculier)

    Loved this hostel. The staff are wonderful, helpful -- and you get a sense that they care about your experience in Antigua, the place is impossibly clean, and the rooftop is amazing. The place was fairly social so good to meet others too, more of a place to have a beer/play cards on the rooftop while watching Fuego erupt rather than a raging party. I would go out of my way to stay here again.

    Great hostel and the staff is amazing! The roof terrace is super comfy and has a great view. Lots of chill out areas all around. Only downside were the beds for me since the mattress was pretty laid through. Would always come back!

    A nice hostel, kind of expensive for what was available. The bathrooms were a little cramped and sometimes not that tidy. The kitchen was not great- didn’t have a sink? only one or two electric burners. No private bathrooms with the private bedrooms, and the location was pretty far from the center- you had to walk down several blocks of somewhat quiet streets to get back to the hostel. Not much atmosphere; no one really hung out.
