“Best hostel in my 9 months travel through CA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

Already my third stay there and I still love it. In fact the attraction to this place is still growing. If you think of staying in the city of Antigua (highly recommended) some points which speak for EL HOSTAL B&B:
- Centrally located (5 mins walk to Parque Central) in a safe area of Antigua - no problems of walking by night, even alone
- Amazing breakfast included. You got 8 opcions to choose from (Everything from a basic continental over fruit salad to scrambled eggs with ham and cheese)
- Always helpful staff
- Very clean, beds are made each day, as the whole hostel is cleaned each day
- Really hot showers (consider it... )
- One of Antigua's best bars right in front of it. (The noise gladly is minimal, but to be on the save side take a room on the back)
- Good prices:
Q80 Dorm (about $10); Q130 Private (Q240 two persons)
- I am sure I forgot something..
- I am not working for these guys

Room Tip: They got two dorms. If you get the choice, take nr. 6 as it has less beds, is more quiet (nr. 2 has...

This place is amazing.. A five minute walk from Parque Central and opposite the best bar in town..( don't let that put you off, the street noise is minimal and there are rooms set further back.) El hostel is the cleanest place I've stayed, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly...you really feel as though you're part of a family. The rooms range from private doubles to dorms. The rates are very reasonable with a delicious breakfast thrown in ...what's not to love?!! (I've been back twice and counting!)

Been travelling for 4 months now and my girlfriend and I stayed at their place for our first couple nights in Antigua before we moved into a student house and absolutely loved it! Really what made me happy about the place was how clean everything was, especially the bathrooms. Very impressive guys. Also the service was excellent and proffessional. Not sure if they are brothers or not but the two young guys that were working were very nice an helpful to us in this confusing city where everything looks the same. Oh yeah, almost forgot they have a great breakfast in the morning thats included. And this is not just a bowl of mush included its a real filling breakfast. Thanks guys and we hope to see you again soon!! Tschüs!

This is a very nice place in the center of Antigua. Don't be fooled by your 1st look at the map - you might think this place is a bit out of town but actually it is just a 5 minutes walk to the parque central. There are nice bars around the hostel which has free wifi and very clean and nice dorms with lockers. An awesome breakfast is included in the price of 80 Q (march 2012, dormbed). This is not just bread with butter - you can choose between 6 different types of breakfast, and they are all really good and with free coffee or tea. It is not like you will have to go somewhere else to get a 2nd one that satisfies you.

Totally recommended, stay here if you can!

Facilities were great, rooms were clean and the free breakfast was amazing. Best hostel we stayed at in Guatemala, and for a great price!
