Yellow House is very convenient for the town, super clean showers and loos, very helpful, efficient staff to arrange trips and a lovely sociable roof terrace with views over the town. Breakfast included, excellent value. We used YH as a base while travelling in Guatemala and were able to leave excess luggage there while we were away.

We were picked up at hour hotel on time and were given great customer service. Our guides were great and made sure we had an informative and interesting hike. The hike was well worth the $ we paid. This is the second time I use Yellow House for my Volcan de Pacaya hike tour. I will definitely continue to use...

The high light here was the breakfast! It was good both mornings. With fresh fruit, beans, tomatoes, and pancakes and then a featured hot item. The staff was helpful when they wanted to be, that is if no one else was around they would give you attention until another local came around. The rooms were clean with a tv and...

+ The hostel is beautiful, located in an old building with a nice courtyard and a terrace with flowers and trees. It has also a good location, the hostel is next to the Merced church. Rooms were tiny but clean and there was hot water in the shower. Best breakfast ever (more like a brunch with baked potatoes, beans, pancakes...

I'm not a fan of shared bathrooms and hostel type accommodation and have to say our private room was great. And the bathrooms except for one occasion were always remarkably clean! The grounds were washed even after they cleared away breakfast! The plants and comfy seating was great. The internet worked mostly and at times was slow to upload pictures....

Yellow House is by far my favourite place to stay in Antigua! There is an amazing atmosphere, the rooms are comfy and nicely decorated, staff is extremely helpful (and great for booking tours) and the breakfast buffet (which is included in the price) is yummy! All in all, great value for money and great place to stay!

This hostel is one of the prettiest, the staff, especially the cleaning/breakfast lady's are skilled and fun, making this hostel super clean, and with a tremendous breakfast. The shared terrace area are a delight to kick back at, and in the night we could see lava from one of the nearby volcanos.. the showers are probably the best we have...

This was my second stay at Yellow House Hostel and I have just rebooked to stay again! Even though the bathrooms are shared they are kept spotlessly clean! And there's always a fresh clean towel to dry your hands. The top terrace is perfect for views of the mountains and Volcan Fuego and hanging out in a hammock. Breakfast is...

Sublime is a good way to put it. Get up early and listen to the church bells ring on the terrace. It's a very comfortable and very relaxed place. Just so you know, the restrooms and showers are private, but communal. You may have to wait for a shower in the morning. That just gives you time to enjoy the...

Located centrally and close to Old Antigua and attractions. Clean hostel, but small rooms and bathrooms which detracted from the overall stay. Great communal area for eating and socializing surrounded by lush vegetation. Breakfast was excellent, eggs, beans , tomatoes, potatoes,pancake and fruit with lots of coffee and hot chocolate. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
