Great location, friendly staff, great value at 100 Quetzales (about $13) for a room. The rooms are small, but colonial style, bigger rooms have a desk and chair. Bathrooms inside the rooms are scruffy and quite dirty but I loved this place.

I'll start with the good parts, which are that you get a private double room with a bathroom for $13 and you've got WiFi and hot water. The bad thing is the state of the rooms, with a shower that floods, filthy walls, and very dirty toilets. There are also no electricity sockets in the room that we had and... More

I understand that it's cheap, but there are cheap places elsewhere that are far less frightening. I walked in to see a cockroach climbing across my wall, and disgustingly dirty walls and floors. Try not to look in the corners where the filth has caked. And I wouldn't suggest going into the bathroom if you don't need to. From the... More

I have stayed countless times at Posada Refugio because it's cheap and convenient. However, it's not exactly clean at all times and I have seen cockroaches on the walls. There are other places in Antigua with better accomodations for a good price (see the Burkhart). I wouldn't recommend staying at the Refugio unless you are looking for a really cheap... More

We paid 120Q for a triple with a private bath and supposedly a hot shower (two spigots, yes, but both equally as cold!). The hostel has a curfew at 1AM and it is nice to see that they stick to the rules, but could have done without the individual banging at the iron gates just below our room beginning at... More
