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

At least for a solo traveller who wants a private room, this place is fantastic value. And the rooms are well equipped as well - I stayed in different rooms over a few stays, and always had drawers, a desk and a lockable cupboard. The showers genuinely have hot water (unlike the tepid dribbles that often come out in other... More

Villa Esthela is a quaint hostel with an amazing rooftop terrace, probably the feature of the hostel. Our private room was comfortable with a shared bathroom next door. Rooms were clean and warm. 5 minute walk to the centre. It is great value for Antigua, staff were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the guest house of the Villa Esthela hostel. It was a little copy of Antigua - peaceful, cute and has all one needs. The kitchen is well equipped, the inner yard is great. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable, air is a bit moldy. The owners are really great, very helpful - before and during the stay. Had... More

I stayed in Villa Estehla from 17 to 20th October and was really pleased with this small hostel. Though inexpensive it has a nice atmosphere and a fantastic terasse with a view to the volcanos surrounding Antigua. The rooms and the kitchen are clean, and Daniella - the owner - is very helpful and gives you all the information you... More

Villa Esthela is such a fantastic place to stay that we went back 3 times while we were in the area and it began to feel like home! It is run by someone who knows exactly what travellers want from a hostel. It was comfortable, friendly, affordable with very good facilities (the kitchen is well equipped for cooking almost anything... More

This place is great with all the amenities the budget traveler needs! They have water, tea and coffee available at all times; a well stocked kitchen for your use; a lovely roof top deck with stunning views and a bar. Plus, the staff, especially the manager Juan, are wonderful, helpful and friendly. The hostel also helps you with travel arrangements... More

We have stayed at Villa Esthela many times - and before - Casa Bellona - under the same management. With what you save in accommodation, you can splurge at Café Mediteranio or ComoComo. The most perfect moment was when we were due to pick up my sister at the airport and were delayed by a landslide - we called Danielle... More

We arrived here late in the night and when we arrived we had such a warm welcome! The manager was so helpful and in the morning gave us all the information we needed for our stay in Antigua.
