This hostel has potential to be an average place to stay for backpackers, but instead it is just filthy and loud. I heard so much street noise at night, slamming of doors, the bathroom on the first floor is indescribable. I think if there was money spent on a cleaning lady that would solve many problems. There are soaked towels... More

I stayed in the 6 bed dorm, beds were a little squeaky as they have plastic covers on the mattresses but ok. Lovely rooftop hangout area, decent kitchen, small movie and calm atmosphere, overall would recommend.

Villa Esthela is a simple, cheap hostel located in the south of Antigua, 10 minutes walking from the main square. The double rooms are big, there is also a kitchen, a TV room and a nice terrace bar. The girl at the reception is very helpful and she can book a lot of tours and sguttles for you

Villa Esthela is situated a little far out from the square, but also in a little quiet neighborhood, a little sketchy at night from my perception. The guard the night we arrived was kind enough to upgrade us from a dormitory to a private after a 17 hour bus journey to Antigua. The place itself is clean and quiet, and... More

We have stayed here several times, all good. Daniella and Juan make a great team, and their staff is so friendly and helpful. We met many interesting fellow travelers sharing snacks and stories on the rooftop terrace that looks out over the city, volcanos in the background. The communal kitchen is well equipped. The communal tv room comes with many... More

The owner is absolutely great- super helpful and friendly. The place is pretty nice. There's a nice rooftop bar with hammocks. Free coffee and use of the kitchen. It may be hard find for a taxi driver from guatemala city, but the location is good, pretty easy to walk anywhere since antiuga is so small

This hostel has a medium sized, fairly well equipped kitchen. Offers free instant coffee and tea at all times. Rooftop terrace with hammocks and a place to wash your clothes if needed is beautiful. Amazing view of Agua and Fuego. The owner is quite nice and helpful. Tv room has lots of DVDs, wifi is fast, showers are actually hot.... More

A pleasant place to stay. Nothing to exciting, but solid. The rooms were clean and a good size. The roof top with hammocks was an excellent place to hangout. The customer service was good - happy to provide advice on where find things and what to do. No problems with the location, it was a short walk to anything.

Quiet good hostel. The best thing about it is roof terrace and the view is just stunning. Hostel is close to the central park. Rooms are a bit dark and smelly, but we were not choosy, so it was ok. In general good value for money.

I stayed at Villa Esthela for 4 nights with my partner. We had a private double room that worked perfectly for us. There was a locked armoire for clothes, etc, a writing desk, 2 beds!, and the hostel offered a selection of books to read on downtime, a rooftop terrace with hammocks, free water and use of the kitchen/fridge. It's... More
