I've been to every country in Central America and I love this place. Popped into Antigua for 3 days and reserved all 3 here. Owner is super friendly and bilingual. You can walk anywhere in Antigua in 20 minutes. Super safe, security at night behind a locked door. Streets are safe near the hostel too. Walked around every night alone....

We had a private room with shared bathroom. It could have been a little cleaner and the mattress a little newer but wasn't too bad. We only stayed 1 night, wich was ok. Staff was very helpful and nice!!

This place is in south, around 10 minutes walk from the central plaza. quiet streets and little difficult to find at first go, but hotel reservation has helpful directions. Amazing views from the terrace and has got nice helping people on management. The security is good, and you get keys for your locker, your dorm and also the main entrance......

The beds were basic, in a bunk bed style setting. Nothing more to be said but there are not enough plugs in the room. A lot of the guests went to sleep early, so a little awkward when wanting to sleep yourself, especially on the top bunk. Not sure how clean the rooms were but the beds were fine. I...

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the hostel was quiet just like we wanted. The view from the roof is unbeatable. However, there was no hot water in the showers and the beds were uncomfortable. Not anything a seasoned backpacker can't handle, though.

Really enjoyed our time in this hostel. In relation to a previous review, sure the walls are thin and unfortunately if people talk right outside your door you will hear it...but its a hostel, its kind of normal! Thought the price was excellent for a private room. Loved the bathrooms, very clean and showers had hot water. Roof top terrace...

If you want to get away from Antigua party hostels, come here. Has a relaxed vibe with a rooftop with hammocks and picnic tables to chill at with 360 degree views of the city and surrounding volcanoes. WIFI was kinda unreliable but the rooms and toilets/showers were clean and tidy. The rooftop bar only opens on Fridays but go next-door...

If you are not looking for a party hostel, this is a place to stay. I got a recommendation from my friend and I couldn't ask for more. This hostel is spacious, quiet and clean. There is a roof-top terrace with hammocks and volcano views where I used to eat my breakfast. There is a kitchen to use. Friendly staff,...
