    Beds are comfortable and have PowerPoints for charging your electronics. Hostel is also very social and organises hikes to the amazing Acantenango volcano!

    Incredible place with the best vibes in Antigua. If you are going to visit Antigua you have to visit Tropicana either to stay or to have a drink.

    Decent party hostel on the weekend, less seemed to be going on during the week which is fair. Fun bar and rooftop terrace and drink prices were ok. Showers were lukewarm. The dorms have three story bunks and if you get the top, it’s a big climb. No lockers for bags but small lockers and an outlet at each bed. Everything is pretty much within walking distance of this hostel.

    Unfortunately left here covered in bed bug bites. The rooftop and food is great but with poor wifi and no lockers or lockable doors I didn’t think it was worth the money. There was also two showers and a toilet for about 25 beds. Netflix room was nice though we got told that it was closed at 10:30. People can party all night but couldn’t watch a movie past that time. Good for a party and too meet people.
