    I love this hostel! Stayed here on 3 separate trips to Guatemala. I like it because it is low key & a bit off the beaten path. My favorite restaurant is across the street & the is an awesome bakery 3 blocks down. If you want to be in the thick of things it may not be for you. It is clean, a great value & has an awesome roof top deck. Not a party hostel...

    We had a wonderful stay at this hostel! The staff were so friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed the quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Plus they have a rooftop patio that has to be one of the best views of the city! It's perfect for people looking for a quiet escape but still enjoy the communal hostel experience. I definitely plan to stay here again when I'm back in Antigua!

    We stayed in a private room here which was nice and spacious and although the bathroom was shared there were plenty of available showers etc. There’s also a great roof terrace and a nice chilled out atmosphere. Great value for money and very friendly and helpful staff!

    Lovely hostel with great staff and very clean. Cheapest private room we could find and two double beds, too! Juan the barman on the roofbar is an absolute legend too and a credit to the hostel! Extended our stay twice here - super secure at night and night porter is very friendly. Kitchen gets kinda crowded and not really a party hostel but there's so many places to party nearby it's no problem. Highly recommended.

    Super nice and helpful staff - the owner, the property attendant and the night security guard. Value for your money is great. Location is not-so-great, but with the introduction of Uber in Antigua, it really helps, especially late at night. I would stay here again.

    I met some cool people here. Place is ok, could be cleaner. Very basic, but for the price its a good deal. Not too far away from centre and in safe area. It was a nice stay.

    Kitchen is kind of small and needs more cooking tools, will be nice to have bigger common areas. Nice rooftop patio to hangout but dont know when the bar actually opens. The staffs are just soso, depends on whos working, I got more information about the town from another hostel that I didnt even stay in. This might be more of a youth hostel, some guests are just not very considerate with cleanliness and noise in the common areas.

    Basic hostel, no real atmosphere but who needs that when you can just head to the white rabbit. A little difficult to find quite a bit away from the centre.
