    The best hostel I've stayed in to date. A very chilled vibe which is perfect if you're looking for a break from the party hostel grind or if that's just not your scene. Staff are lovely and keep the place spotless, and are happy to make you a cup of tea and have a chat! Plenty of good spots to sit and read or chat to anyone around, and from the rooftop one will find what is definitively the best view in town. Can't recommend it highly enough.

    We loved staying at Purpose, it really fulfilled everything we needed at that part of our trip; calm, clean and friendly. Microwave, fridge, free tea and coffee, freshly grown herbs on the roof and sanitary products for women. The owner was generous enough to upgrade us after a tiring hike and was always keen for conversation and giving advice. Beautiful rooftop where you can see the volcanoes and a view of the city.

    The Purpose Hostel was wonderful. The rooms have beautiful white curtains for privacy, the reception and owner is friendly and welcoming and the rooftop garden is lovely, with a little herb garden. It's not a party hostel but as a solo traveller I felt that everyone was friendly.

    We had an awesome time here, the location was perfect, we felt thoroughly spoiled during our 4 night stay, so well looked after with constant coffee, clean warm showers and the rooftop is just amazing - perfect views of the volcanoes night and day! The staff are on hand to offer any advice and help you need! Cannot recommend this hostel enough!

    Seriously the absolute best hostel in Antigua. If you’re looking for a peaceful atmosphere, fun-loving trustworthy people, clean facilities, soft beds, and something close to the Central Park, look no further it’s the Purpose hostel. The customer service is impeccable. The rooftop is heavenly. Thank you so much to Tatjana and her staff for making my stay an amazing experience!

    The people who own and manage the hostel are incredible! Helping deaf locals find employment, all staff are encouraged to learn sign language. Reception staff (in particular) Tatiana is incredible friendly and accommodating. Makes everyone feel at home and always happy to have a chat. So passionate about the cause, it's beautiful!

    Loved my stay at Purpose. Tatiana was super attentive at all the needs from travellers at the hostel. Really loved the fact that this is NOT a party hostel, yet it was easy to meet new people if desired.
