    The Pool is a very good plus with this hot summer, they have a bar on the side of the Pool which is perfect! If you’re looking to meet fun travelers this is the place. On my last day I got very sick and the manager came with me to the doctor and translated for me; I really appreciated this a lot!

In my week stay I climbed 3 Volcanos (Acatenango, Fuego, & Pacaya). On top of that I partied and met tons of amazing people.

    Since I checked in the staff was very welcoming and helpful as they were through all the stay. The triple bunk beds are curious haha I stayed in the third bunk and it was alright, the bed had a locker and a plug so that was good. I would stay again for sure! I loved the pool specially because it was very hot when I was in Antegua

    This hostel was a great time right next to the city center. It’s only a few steps away from everything you need. All of the workers and volunteers were super helpful and fun. You can definitely have a great party at the both of the bars but still get some time to relax during the day and at night.
