I ended up staying here because Yellow House and Internacional Mochilero, both of which were recommended to me by other backpackers, were full. Staff were nice though sometimes I had some slight difficulties communicating with english. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, though the bathrooms were a little shabby. The bathrooms had instant water heaters which did the job, though... More

We came to this hostel as Internacional Mochilero across the road was full, and so glad we found such a good deal. We had a private bedroom, number 2, with shared bathroom at a lot less than some of the other hostels charge. Rates include a good breakfast of pancakes or eggs too, which is a bonus, or you can...

Stayed here traveling through Antigua and it quickly became one of our favorite places to stay in Guatemala. We found this place on the recommendation of fellow cheap as can be budget travelers in Lanquin. The first time we stayed at Casa Shalom, we stayed in a private double, which was right next to the shared bathrooms (not ideal), but... More

You wouldn't think much of this place in Antigua, but it was our last resort while walking around looking for a private room. Their rooms are extremely cheap, clean and nicely situated close to the market, ruins and not too far from the main square. The upper communal kitchen is nice and they offer free breakfast in the mornings. Unfortunately... More

The nicest people in Antigua, offering the best valued hostel. Q50 for dorm per person including breakfast. There isn't a cheaper nicer place in town! Also the place is very quiet and very easy to sleep at. Highly recommended!

We arrived very early in the morning with no hostel reservation and the staff were very friendly and helpful. After originally quoting way over the odds we eventually paid less than rack rate for a double with private ensuite. It's a basic hostel with a travel agency in the reception area and a computer for guest use. Our room was... More

We stayed across the street at Mochilero's, and then moved into this hostel for a few nights. Simple room, no AC, bathrooms were clean but not much to it. Cheap and good location, so function for a short stay.

Not really impressed with the place.. Some of the staff are nice, others aren't whatsoever. Not much to it really, room is average and bathroom too. There were no other travellers around while we were there so we cant really say about the vibe. It was cheaper that other hostels around but no breaky.

Prices seem to vary with seasons. We payed 120 for a private bathroom, no breakfast. Kitchen is very basic, but other than that we had a good time there. A little far from the center, about a 10 minute walk. Closer to the market really.
