We stayed here in a private, great, spacious room. Cool hostel, nice brekkie. Great rooftop terrace. Downsides for us was the blonde American guy that works there was really rude to us when we arrived (there were four of us). Just unnecessarily rude and blunt. And only other negative is the guy above played music loudly in the hostel from... More

I love this place, this was my second time back down to Guatemala and my second time staying with Ox, they have a new place! For my trip spanning over a month and a half, I probably spent over a collective week at Ox base camp. I really got to know and love everyone there, even the new faces. The... More

Stayed at basecamp before and after our Acatenango trip. Beds were nice and the atmosphere was very relaxed, which was just what we needed. Great views from the terrace, and a nice Elton John playlist on the house speakers. Will definitely return.

You come here to relax. To Mellow out. To rest your body and your mind. Basecamp, you don't have to worry about water, They have it, towels, they have them, or peace, it's all there. They even have netflix. Can you believe that? And they give you breakfast. It's a cool Place.

Friendly staff, great hangout spaces and more chilled out than some of the other party hostels. I went on a tour run by OX and it was cool to stay in the adventure hostel with the other people participating.

I booked out Base Camp for a group of volunteers and we couldn't have been happier! Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable hostel. Excellent location, just a few blocks walking to everywhere. Victor, the owner, is amazing, he knows what he's doing and is passionate about the tours he is offering and making sure everyone is happy... More

Delightful courtyard with gratis ping-pong, netflix and pleasant eating area. The roof terrace is perfect for pre drinks and relaxed morning sunrises. You may also be lucky enough to have some cookies cooked fresh for you by the delightful staff.

We stayed twice at OX BaseCamp – each time for 3-4 days. The first time was at the beginning of our vacation. The staff is simply great. They really know Antigua (one guy was even local) and can tell you the best places to go. Best bakery for normal stuff, best bakery for banana-bread, best restaurant (rainbow café), best Tacos...

This is a good hostal if your just looking to chill. Not too many people partying as alot of them are doing the excursions so it allows for a quieter night. Saying that sometimes the staff blast music early in the morning for god knows why or at night. I think most that come here are happy its not a... More

When traveling around Central America, it’s easy to get used to sub-par facilities, non-existent customer service, and pretty much everything else at a bare minimum. So when I checked into Base Camp I was expecting nothing more than adequacy. However, I could not have been more impressed and happy with my stay at Base Camp. After being greeted (with a... More
