I stayed in two hostels in antigua and this was by far my favorite one. I traveled throughout guatemala and had to frequently stay the night in antigua before heading out to another town in the morning. El Hostal was comfortable, clean, modern and had very friendly/accommodating staff. The complimentary breakfast was delicous! I stayed in the dorm room (90Q... More

Great hosts - lots of very clear information and endlessly patient about answering our questions. Very nice breakfast. We stayed in a big private room. Bathrooms are clean and showers are good. Great central location in beautiful Antigua.

I stayed here a while ago and I always remember this as obe of the top 3 hostels ive visited! The breakfast was delicious, good portion, and the place was very clean. Great environment and the staff were friendly as well! Will definitely be staying here when I go back to Antigua.

I've stayed at this wonderful hostel twice, and now even though I'm based at a homestay while I study spanish in Antigua, I come back just to visit. The staff are amazing. Friendly, loads of fun, attentive and professional. The accommodation is really clean, well thought-out and comfortable. The heart of the hostel is the centre courtyard where you'll be... More

One of the best hostels we have ever stayed in. Location was about 5 blocks from the "Parque Central". The price, $10 p/p included taxes and breakfast, and the staff was excellent. It has a very pleasant inner courtyard with hammocks, tables/chairs, sofas, bar, front desk. The girls that make breakfast are very nice and the choices are all good.... More

Very clean, big rooms. Staff are excellent and so helpful. Location is great. Free breakfast is very good - lots of options. Decent showers/toilets. Good book exchange and lots of games. Bars across the road can be loud if you have an early start.

Having traveled in Guatemala 3 times, I have stayed in El Hostal in Antigua every time. Rooms are clean and spacious. Hot water is HOT. Service is excellent! Very knowledgeable staff who clearly are all proud of where they live and the way the hostel gets run. Social area for when you choose to be social and private rooms for... More

I stayed at El Hostal on two occasions. Unfortunately, during the second stay I became seriously ill and was admitted to hospital which resulted in needing to return back home for further tests. The staff at El Hostal were unbelievable. I honestly do not know what I would have done without their help and support both physically and emotionally. Not... More
