    This is such a welcoming and clean hostel with great attention to detail and such a clear perspective of what it wants to be. Tatiana was a joy to interact with and she went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. The showers had real hot water and the bathrooms were immaculately clean. The rooftop terrace was comfortable and relaxing. This is a place I would stay at again when I am back in Antigua.

    Lovely hostel!! Always very clean, the staff were super helpful and welcoming and each bed had a charging station and an area for belongings. Not a party hostel but still relatively social given the common areas are so nice. The general atmosphere is super relaxed and welcoming. Would definitely stay here again and I definitely recommend it unless you are looking for more of a party vibe.

    After backpacking 7 months, this is my first 10 review !! From the very beginning this hostel was amazing. Tatiana (an angel in disguise) made us welcome from the start. She explained everything very clearly. Showers were great, atmosphere was very zen. The views were amazing and great security. Could not recommend this hostel enough especially if you need some rest after hiking a volcano!

    This was my second time staying at The Purpose. It's location is perfect, and it's super easy to find. Tatjana and Carlos are incredibly helpful and will make sure your stay is amazing. The staff keep the place immaculately clean throughout the day, and the showers are really good. The best part is watching Vulcan de Fuego erupt like every 10 minutes while laying out on the rooftop herb garden. There's also a really good Spanish school directly across the street. I highly recommend staying here.

    This is one of our favourite hostels. Tatjana is AMAZING - she will help with anything and gives the best food recommendations. The hostel itself is quiet with lots of hangout areas so you can easily meet people. What makes this hostel awesome: the staff (learn some Guatemalan sign language!), the views from the roof, the tea selection, the hostel’s philosophy. Added bonus: I went to a free yoga class. We will definitely come back!

    This is such a special, unique hostel. I was only there for one night, but I was immediately made to feel right at home. The staff were exceptional, the owner was so lovely to chat with, and the rest were so helpful (especially when I needed help booking my flight in Spanish!! Thank you!) Bed was so comfy, facilities were amazing and there was everything you need (including free coffee and a biscuit in the afternoon!) Very clean as well. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Great job guys!
