My friends and I stayed at El hostal for two nights recently. We had a faultless airport transfer arranged and were checked in with now problems. We stayed in a private 4 bed for one night and a 10 bed dorm for the other. Both rooms were great, good size, comfy beds and secure storage space. The only issue we... More

My friend and I stayed in a dorm here for 2 nights. Room was very clean with lockers inside the room. It did get very bright and hot early in the mornings but that's fairly standard with Central American hostels. The breakfast included (there's a choice from a menu) was great, really set you up for the day. Purified water... More

Really good hostel with a menu (yes, menu) of breakfast (included in the price). Very good located and clean. Dorm rooms are large, fresh, and well mantained. People at the desk is very friendly and can give you some good advice on Antigua. Excellent experience, will come back to this place for sure.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in a private room. It was very clean when we got here and someone had come in to arrange our bed everyday while we were out midday. I had kept most of my belongings sprawled all over the ground so I was surprised to find all my stuff organized on a... More

Stayed here for two evenings - one night we were keen to party, the other we needed an early night for very early transfer. Great staff and excellent inclusive breakfast. Good location and comfortable beds. However the hostel is very noisy - it's opposite a lively bar which can be heard until 1am ish so not good if you need... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. Was even going to stay longer but they were fully booked when I wanted to extend my stay so it seems to be really popular place to stay, you need to book things in advance. Place was very clean and quiet and looked at the same time good. I just love hostels where they got... More

They have all sorts of info and shuttles that you can organize to pick you up right at El Hostal. Great place to meet other travelers. A friend recommended... More

Loved the place. Staff are very kind and helpful. The bathrooms and dorms are clean and tidy and the beds very comfortable. Considering the fact that most hostels that have breakfast included serve a mediocre breakfast, the one at "El Hostal" was really really good! Guests can use a kitchen. Location is also great. Just about three blocks away from... More

Stayed in a private room (shared bathroom) with my boyfriend for 4 nights. Well located, clean, comfortable, good WiFi and yummy breakfast (the rancheros dish is so good)! Only negative (and not a direct reflection on El Hostal) was a shuttle to Panajachel that we booked through the hostel - it was over crowded without proper seats and extremely uncomfortable... More
