I stayed here for a few days- my introduction to both Antigua and Guatemala. I loved it, amazing staff that made you feel so welcome. Breakfast filled me up till dinner. The terrace was a great place to hang out with a beer and talk to people and guides after they had climbed one of the surrounding volcanos. It isnt... More

One of my favourite places I've ever stayed in, and perfect when doing the tours. There are a lot of partying style hostels around but base camp has a more chilled atmosphere. Having been around Antigua a lot, there's endless places to go out and enjoy and then come back to a nice comfortable place. The basics are all covered... More

Have been at Base Camp hostel for four nights. Such a great place. I choose this hostel as I was doing the overnight Acetanago Valcano tour with OX Excursions. Base Camp is far from a Hilton. It is what it is. A cool quiet place to relax. The beds were comfortable. It was clean. The staff were nice and informative.... More

I stayed at Base Camp because I was doing a hike through O.X. I love the chill environment, comfortable and clean beds, hot showers, and the super friendly and helpful staff. I highly recommend this hostel! I will definitely stay at base camp the next time I'm in Antigua.

We arrived here on thanksgiving and were greeted by the volunteers at the hostel. Rosie invited us to join for a thanksgiving dinner they were hosting and we felt instantly welcomed. The dinner was great, the volunteers went to a lot of effort, and all the people staying were friendly and fun without it being a "let's party and get... More

Stayed here for one night, after O.X. moved to their new/current location last year, the place looks amazing! The art work! some cool cats spent some time hand painting all those walls. It's cozy, it's young, it's rugged, it screams adventure.....& it's full of great energy. Clean beds & space. Aside from being an awesome adventure company, they know how... More

I had a great time staying at this little chilled out hostel, you can hang out on the rooftop in the hammocks watching the volcanoes or in the chill cave watching a little Netflix if you need some downtime after your epic hike with the guys at OX! Breakfast is included in the price of your stay, we had some... More

Base Camp is a great hostel just a 5 minutes walk from all the attractions of Antigua. The view from the balcony of Vocano Agua is amazing. The staff are super friendly and very willing to give you the best tips and hints on what to do in Antigua. The 6 bed dorm is great, you get your own reading... More
