When I stayed here, the hostel was almost dead. There were hardly anyone in the hostel. So the socializing really lacked even with the big terrace and a nice hangout place. This hostel is slightly far from the Center. I glad I get to stash my backpack in the hostel early morning of my arrival. But the lady working in... More

Really enjoyed it here, one of my favorite hostels. It's a bit out of the way from the center but I didn't mind. Everything's clean, workers are really nice and helpful. There's good wifi, free water and coffee, lots of movies, and a communal kitchen. Security is good, keys to to the room, the hostel, and the gate to the... More

Nice hostel with a rooftop bar that has an amazing view. The bar isn't always open, but you can bring your own drinks when it's closed and still enjoy the view. They offer free coffee, tea and purified water and Danielle is really friendly and helpful!

The private room was good. Not the most comfortable of beds, but given it is a hostel, it was to be expected. The room was clean, and the host was very nice and friendly. The shared bathroom was ok, and worked for showering and using the restroom. I loved the roof-top view and the hammocks. The location is very close... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in total and I really recommend the place. The dorm room was great and it was a lovely bonus of having the roof terrace. It was nice to be able to use a kitchen here as eating out constantly can get pricey. Staff were very pleasant and always went out of their way to... More

Villa Esthela is a great stay in Antigua for a fraction of the price you find other places. It's a short walk from central, but it's great because you avoid street noise. The hostel has a a nice rooftop terrace with hammocks and great views of the volcano and a bar that sells drinks until 10 or 1030. There is... More

Villa Esthela is that little gem of a hostel that you hope to find. The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms have hot water and there's a great kitchen to cook up a feast from all the cheap, fresh produce available in Antigua. The staff were warm and friendly and helped us book a great trip up Pacaya volcano.... More

This was one of our favourite hostels throughout our whole trip. It's well located and is a short walk to the centre. Everyone told us the supermarket was far away, but it's only about a 20 minute walk (fine for us). There was a shared kitchen that was very well-equipped. Each room was given a basket in the kitchen to... More

This place became somewhat of a second home, as I found myself back there throughout my whole trip in Guatemala. I liked that it was a little farther away from the "city center" than other hostels. It was quiet, but still had a lively atmosphere, depending on the crowd that was staying there. Sometimes we'd have small parties on the... More

A good stay in this nice, quiet hostel. The rooftop terrace has a great view. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The Harry Potter bathroom was amusing. WiFi was very good in the common area. 200 characters required.
