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

WiFi doesn't reach the top rooms,but there is a computer with internet in the reception.you can use the kitchen too. The people working there are very nice too. The rooms downstairs are a bit...

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.

No matter how cheap a place is- 100 q for a private room, it isn't worth scratching for 3 days. The woman at the front will tell you anything just so you stay there. Also, it is very noisy from about 5 am. Do not go here!!!!

I will agree with the previous reviewer in that this hostel is functional. The rooms are comfortable, and the hostel is clean. The kitchen leaves a little to be desired, as it is very simple and outdated. Nothing to make coffee with, which should be a crime in Guatemala. The staff was helpful, however don't expect great English.

Obviously, there are some very nice places to stay in Antigua. There are even luxurious places to stay. This is not one of them. I stayed in a room with a private bathroom. It was incredibly cheap (100 Quetzales) and included breakfast. Breakfast was eggs, bread and coffee (or tea). The room was fairly clean--and the shower had hot water.... More
