Small hotel on edge of old section of Antigua. Bars on windows and night security guard with locked front door. Shower had cold running water, beds are older, free internet. Smokers on second floor were noisy. Nice family who run the place.

Quite simple rooms and building but you won't find a better price in Antigua. We had a double room with shared bathroom and breakfast for 140Q, which was very fair. Room was pretty small and basic but good wifi, decent enough toilets and friendly staff working there. Location also very good. Would recommend to those on a budget.

We stayed here for one night and weren't sure what to expect on arrival as they had very little english. Turned out to be a cute family run bnb style place. Rooms were simple with a towel provided and showers were hot. The breakfast in morning was a choice of eggs and was lovely! A little spanish might be helpful...

Stayed in Casa Shalom for 4 nights in a three person dorm back in January I paid 50Q. It is by far the best deal in all of Antigua, they had electric showers that if you kept the flow rate low enough were scalding hot. They provided a free breakfast each morning of eggs, watermelon, bread, beans, biscuit, and coffee....

The hostel was very nice and the rooms are clean! Breakfast was everyday perfect and delicious! The rooftop is perfect to sit at the evening and listen the sound of the the city. The only point why it not get full 5 points is the private bathroom. This is so small(1,2 square meters) and strange electrical connection.

We stayed for three nights in total. Location is great, staff is attentive, kitchen is fine, breakfast is not bad, rooms are ok. I would gladly come back. I don't understand what do people expect for this price in Antigua.
