I liked staying here. It's in a chill and relatively quiet area of Antigua, but still close to cafes, restaurants, the market (big plus!), etc. It's clean, the rooms are decent, the bathrooms and showers are decent, it has a very big common space, amazing internet, good price, accessible kitchen, big outdoor patio. I highly recommend it for seasoned travelers... More

Found this place by chance and it was perfect for us. After trip to coast, emailed and had quick response, got same room back for few more days. So quiet and clean with garden area in back and kitchen available if desired. Breakfast included and can choose from 5 different options. Great place to stay!

We could not of been happier with this gem of a place. My lonely planet strongly recommended it and I can see why! For just 150Q (which is unbeatable in antigua) we got practically our own little house in the back of the hostel. The kitchen is spotless so I recommend going to the market (2 minute walk) and buying... More

I stayed at Casa Jacaranda for one night & was very impressed by the quality of service. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful. The breakfast is a real positive, included in the price & you have a choice of five different menus. I took the last remaining bed in the Casa & that happened to be a dorm bed.... More

Stayed 1 night upon arriving to Guatemala & 2 nights before flying out. As a woman traveling alone I opted for a private room. Many places the pricing is higher if you're traveling single. The reasonable price for a clean comfy room in a great location also includes a choice of 5 freshly made breakfast options. Cute courtyard to relax... More

I was in charge of taking a group of high school boys around Guatemala for a week of exploration. I had 22 total travelers. Our first night was spent at a children’s home in Parramos, Guatemala, which is not too far from Antigua. Then, we stayed two nights at Casa Jacaranda. I wanted for my group to stay a third... More

Cold, but clean shower Bed was a bit soft, which made my back hurt - but i guess thats me (plus climbing the volcano + yoga class). The night is quiet and... More

I had a great experience. I needed a place to spend the night before going to the airport in the morning. I slept really well (with earplugs), had a good breakfast the next morning, and the staff helped me figure out where I needed to go to pick up my bus.

I chose to stay at the Casa Jacaranda because I wanted a cheaper place that wouldn't be a party hostel. The location is pretty close to La Merced, a bit far from the central park, but not too bad. Very close to Luna de Miel Crepes and other good finds in Antigua. They have pretty good WiFi, which was wonderful... More
