I have been traveling alone and looking for a hostel with a good mix of atmosphere to meet people and clean/safe place. This place has good rooms - singles and shared, great terrace with a view of the volcanoes, and a hot manager. One of the best hostels in Antigua. I can't say enough good things about it!

Let me start with a disclosure: I am friends with the proprietor of this hostel, and would consider the staff here friends as well. Now a caveat to my disclosure: I count these people among my friends because they have spent the past 7 weeks giving me a home in Antigua. Holistico is less a hostel than it is an... More

I was told of Holistico from some friends I met on the west coast of Guatemala. I was welcomed right away by owners Ceasar and Fabiola who kept me company while I was waiting for a friend to arrive. They told me of some good spots to see in the city and took me to some great place to go... More

Hostel Holistico, the perfect location to use as a base while traveling around Guatemala. Cesar is an excellent host and knowledge of the area is a awesome. Fabiola makes the best breakfast I had since living at home in Kentucky. The rooms are great the atmosphere and mix of people from all over the world enhances the experience. Thank you... More

Friends I had been traveling with earlier suggested that I should go to Holistico when I got into Antigua, and I'm happy I did. The place is small but not too small, there's a nice roof-top terrace, from where you can see Volcan Fuego spitting fire at night. Nice hot showers, and maybe most important, really good beds. There is... More

I have been to Holistico many times. It feels so good just to lay down in one of their beds, very comfy! - the showers are awesome... real hot water... feels so good after hiking the Pacaya Volcano. They have a really nice rooftop where you can relax or read a book, plasma TV and in general the hostel is... More

Holistico is the hostel we all hope to find when exporing the world. I feel lucky to have discovered this wonderful place. The location is great, the place is clean and comfortable, there is a kitchen, internet, and real hot water, the terrace is amazing; but the best things about Holistico are the most difficult to describe. People come here... More
