the Banana Azul Hostel has it's own charm. The private rooms are big enough and cozy, although they smell like the flat of my grandma. I'm not sure if the sheets have been properly washed. There is a big kitchen downstairs which can be used by all the guests. The staff of the hostel was very kind and helpful. To...

Our stay at Banana Azul Hostel was very pleasant. We booked a private room with a shared bathroom and cannot complain about anything really. The room on the second floor was a great size and had huge wardrobes, and the shared bathroom was always clean - it even felt a little homey. We also got to meet the owner, Christian,...

Dorms: One night, no ventilation. Private room with bathroom: Basic, everything felt just dirty in there. Moved to a room with shared bathroom upstairs: A little better, but the shared bathroom was ALWAYS dirty. People would smoke in there, why? Shared kitchen, same...always seemed dirty, only used it to boil water. People there are always smoking, for the non-smokers this...

Most disgusting place ever seen. Beds were not comfy. Found a rusty nail on the bed? Walls were dirty as well. Seemed like they never clean anything out of the room. Bathroom was a mess. Tiles were grey/Brown-ish. Rude staff that only seem interested in drinking beers and having fun instead of doing their job. They got pretty agressive when...

It was very nice, people was so nice and very Pura Vida! The owner was a good person and the bed was fine for me! I recommend this hostel. The location is perfect, is near of "Mercaditos" and have a good vibre. The roommates were very cool people! It's a good place to make friends!

We took the bus to Antigua from Guatemala City. We did not have a pre-arranged place to stay. We were able to get a room with two beds and a private bathroom. We are a family of three so preferred a little privacy. Everyone we met at the hostel was very nice. It was definitely reasonable place to stay for...

Myself and a friend rented a room for a week. Everything was seemingly fine until we inquired about missing possessions. We politely asked if anyone could have access to our room, never accusing anyone of stealing from us. We continued looking and eventually found the items. What followed from the owner, Cristian, was incredibly unprofessional and disrespectful. Over a phone...

I did not use the accommodations here but booked a 4am shuttle to Guatemala City from them to pick me up from my hostel at Three Monkeys hostel. Gave them the address and they assured me they knew where the hostel was. 4am comes next day and no one shows up after 45 minutes, so I walk to the hostel...

Room was normal, couple single beds, kept clean. Think we paid $17US per night. There is no hot water in the bathrooms. The guests were annoying...people next to us were incredibly loud at 4 in the morning blasting music as they got ready for whatever they were doing several days in a row. Stayed here for 2 nights and were...
