    I cannot speak highly enough of this hostel! It’s beautiful, clean, spacious, quiet, has all the amenities, and helps the deaf community. Yet, THE REAL GEM of the hostel is TATIJANA. I broke my leg climbing down Acatenango and she made sure I had everything I could have ever needed. She found a way for me to shower safely which was HUGE, helped us find food, gave great recommendations, put us in a better room, checked on me regularly, and made me as comfortable as possible. THANK YOU TATIJANA!!

    Purpose Hostel was so incredible. The woman running the place is so kind and helpful. We asked her to help arrange a lot of things and she went above and beyond to help us. Location is good. Also we really want to recommend doing the bag making tour with De La Gente. You go to a locals home and make a bag from second hand huipils. It was a highlight of our trip in Guatemala. We stayed in the private room and it was huge with 2 queen beds! We were expecting 2 small beds. Rooftop has a great view!

    This place felt like home to us during our trip in Guatemala. The rooms are clean the staff is amazing! Especially Tatjana always made sure we’re fine and helped us out with everything. The rooftop is great to do yoga or to enjoy Antigua from above. A big plus is likewise all the herbs which you can just take to make your tea for free. And as if this isn’t already enough, this hostel has an amazing purpose!!

    Definitely worth it’s high rating! I loved this peaceful yet friendly and social hostel in a great part of Antigua. The staff, especially Tatiana, couldn’t do enough for you and were so kind and knowledgeable, and the facilities were beautiful and always kept very clean; there always seemed to be someone cleaning! Finally the roof was amazing- the herb gardens were a nice touch and watching the volcano erupt into the early hours of the morning with the other travelers was magical!

    Phenomenal hostel in a great location of Antigua. This is quite possibly the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in, and I recommend it for that reason alone. But there's so much more. Incredible rooftop. And perhaps most of all, the purpose: connecting people, deaf and hearing, Guatemalan and foreign. You'll see what I mean. It's a great mission. Tatiana, ever-helpful, is doing things right with this hostel!

    I absolutely loved this place. Some of the kindest most helpful staff I've ever met (thank you Tatjana!), super clean, calm, and welcoming. Amazing rooftop to stretch out and relax on after a long day out, coffee and tea at all times, huge security lockers and fresh water, hot showers... Everything you could ask for!

    This is a truly lovely hostel run by lovely people. There are a number of areas to relax, an awesome roof terrace which we spent most of our time, free coffee and water as well as comfy large rooms. For the price your paying, it’s the best deal in Antigua
