The staff was friendly and helpful and prepared a good breakfast. The pineapple was the best I have had. There was a good dynamic felt here. Rooms were clean, the terrace was a nice place to relax, and I enjoyed the ability to watch a movie on the T.V.

I was backpacking through Guatemala and it was suggested that I stay here...let me just say I ended up changing my plans several times so that I could spend as much time as possible staying at Holistico! The owner (Cesar) is amazing and does everything for the travelers. He arranges plans for you, can help you figure out where to... More

Our first impression of holistico was good, the courtyard is cosy and would be a perfect place to relax. the communal tv and dvds are also a nice addition for a relaxing night in. however, our room was unfortunately not up to standard. a hole in the wall that was stuffed with a dirty rag and taped into place revealed...

An experience like non other, the lounge area has a great view, I was able to sit there with my laptop and didn't even realize I was working! The atmosphere is surreal! Clean and comfortable. The owner makes you feel like family :) WILL DEFINITELY RETURN!

Holistico is a quite new hostal in Antigua, and a great place to stay. Its located right next to nightlife and restaurants, but in a quiet zone. The owner is extremely friendly, and the ecclectic design is fun and cozy. I especially liked the small roof terrace and the free wifi. Considering the price, the hostal is also very good... More

This was a good place to come to as a solo traveler, because it was so easy to meet people. It is the perfect place, if you want to get a little away from the Lonely Planet crowd and meet a greater variety of people. The place has a nice and relaxed atmosphere.

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
