Not super clean but okay. Nice staff! Little bit a party hostel so there will be noise. The breakfast is included... but it is so little that you will order another breakfast anyway. They offer the vulcano climb acatenango for a good price Q150 and at the park you pay Q20 for the reserve.

We stayed 2 nights here. The terrace is nice, the view is great. You can see the volcano when there are no clouds. The staff is friendly. Rooms are a bit dark but clean. The bathrooms are not so clean due to the fact that there is just 2 for all people in the hostel.

The view of Antigua from the terrace is unbelievable. I really enjoyed sipping margaritas and looking at volcanoes while researching my next steps. The staff are all very friendly and helpful with tips on what to do in Antigua and travel logistics. You can book all your activities and shuttles right at the hostel which is very convenient. Thanks for...

I had a bed in a dorm for 4 people, it was quite small and i didn't really know where to put my luggage in order not to disturb the other guests. It was really clean though and you were able to lock the room as well as the bathroom (which was very small, too). They have a "breakfast of...

A clean friendly hostal with helpful knowledge staff. The view of the volcanoes was spectacular from the roof to patio. Hot showers were a bonus. The nice thing about the breakfast that was included is that it changed from day to day.

We did not stay in this hostel but went to these guys to book a shuttle from Antigua to San Pedro. They were helpful and friendly and booked our shuttle with ease. It cost 80Q per person to get a bus directly. They also have many other transport options and tours too.

Hi Emma, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We find that this happens a lot - people walking down the street pop in to ask for directions, recommendations, etc. and find our receptionists to be so friendly and helpful that they end up arranging transport with us or even staying with us at a later date. Glad...

It's a good place to stay if you are looking for something's in Antigua. Sitting in the terrace you can see one of the biggest volcanos of the country, so that's could be an appointment of this hostel

Although it tended to get cloudy in the afternoon, we could still see Fuego erupting whilst sat having a beer in the rooftop bar! Pretty cool. Views of Agua and the other one (tricky to remember how to say it!) are unrestricted and pretty epic! We stayed in Room 7... Terrible night's sleep. The beds bow and you're directly underneath...

Dear Cunniff, You just gave us two stars but it sounds like you actually had a pretty good experience! We are in the process of replacing all of our mattresses so that should soon be a problem of the past for all rooms. True, the noise from the bar does waft down to number 7. We try to put our...

Reviewed 26 January 2017 via mobile

The terrace view is indeed beautiful. However the private rooms are not recommended at all. Our windows could not open and it was therefore badly ventilated. The shower was really old. Better go to the terrace bar during Sunset for a drink, and stay somewhere else. Antigua has for sure better options!

Dear Lisa, Thank you for your review. The windows in your private room were secured for your safety. We would hate to think that someone would take advantage of an open window while you were out enjoying the beautiful sights in Antigua. We actually replace our showers about every three months. Many places in Guatemala do not have gas heated...
