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

Close to the market, and 10 minutes form central park. Staff is really friendly, speak pretty good english. Breakfast is tasty, with 5 variation served at your table. 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

Start with positives- free breakfast, ok bed, friendly staff. BUT you will not be able to sleep if you take a double room. There is no sound insulation and so you're awake until the last person goes to bed. 3am and up when the first person gets up 5am. Then there's all the toilet breaks in between where we heard...

Overall had a pleasant stay. This was a lovely place at a reasonable price with a good location & WiFi. I just stayed for one night because I had a flight in the morning, and picked this place because it is a good, quiet hostel. You probably won't meet many people here, as there's no real "vibe," but that's not... More

The hostel is very clean and quiet however it is overpriced for a private room. The dorms are priced the same around town but the private rooms don't include a bathroom and it is cheaper To get a three star hotel room then stay here. The staff is nice but the guest are not very social so it is a... More
