Property Description

Welcome to Esperanza Hostel, centrally located in Antigua. We are situated just two blocks away from the iconic Santa Catalina Arch and a mere four blocks from the bustling Central Park and local markets. Our prime location ensures easy access to the vibrant heart of the city, allowing you to immerse yourself in the rich cultural experience of Antigua. Foremost, all proceeds from our hostel go to support our local non-profit that provides education, healthcare and a safe space for children and single mothers victims of abuse.

At Esperanza Hostel, we prioritize your comfort and satisfaction. We offer a range of facilities and services designed to enhance your stay. Enjoy our affordable and reliable airport pick-up and drop-off service, available at your convenience. Our 24-hour check-in ensures a seamless arrival process, and you can stay connected with our complimentary Wi-Fi throughout your stay.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to embark on our renowned ACATENANGO VOLCANO TREK, departing directly from the hostel. This unforgettable adventure promises to be a highlight of your trip. For those opting for our ACATENANGO & FUEGO TREK, we provide additional perks such as a complimentary breakfast before your hike and convenient storage facilities. After your trek, enjoy a discounted rate on accommodation for the following nights, and savor a shot of whisky, rum or tequila with dinner. We also take care of your camping gear, eliminating the need to carry items like a sleeping bag, sleeping mat, and tent, as everything will be set up for you at our base camp.

Our check-in time is from 15:00 to 12:00 am, while check-out is at 10:00 am. Payment can be made upon arrival using cash, credit cards (Visa and MasterCard), or debit cards. Rest assured that we offer free cancellation up to 24 hours before your scheduled arrival.

Please note that taxes are not included in the quoted prices.

We kindly request our guests to be considerate of our neighbors, as we are not a party hostel. While you have the freedom to come and go as you please, we ask that noise levels are kept to a minimum after midnight. Excessive alcohol consumption is not tolerated, as we strive to maintain a peaceful and respectful environment for all.
Our accommodation includes same-sex dorm rooms, ensuring your comfort and privacy. If you are traveling as a mixed-gender group, we kindly ask that you book the appropriate rooms and understand that you will not be assigned to the same room. However, you can take solace in the fact that our hostel is small, and you will still be in close proximity to your travel companions. In fact, you will only be a few doors away!
Experience the best of Antigua from our conveniently located Esperanza Hostel. Let us be your home away from home as you explore the captivating wonders of this historic city.

the owner was aside when I checked in, and talked like i came to apply for work. It seems better not to say more, is one of those places where one may assume: If those who are in charge got a feeling about you, just a feeling, then... with your name with your nationality with your passport foto...
