If you like it clean and quiet this hostel is perfect. They have a nice terrace with a small but reasonable kitchen. The rooms are very clean and the beds comfortable. Unfortunately they close the roof-terasse at 9 and when you wanna sit down downstairs you are not allowed to switch the light on (after 9), after 10 its forbidden... More

We originally booked for two nights but stayed 4. The rooms are clean and tidy though not very spacious. We stayed in a four bed dorm and had it to ourselves so it was comfortable. Lockers were located outside the room in the hall. The kitchen is clean, tidy and well stocked - though we'd recommend purchasing a can opener,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at hostal Antigua. We have stayed at many hostels in our time travelling and can honestly say this hostel has more of a hotel feeling which is just wonderful. The staff are so lovely and go out of their way to help you. The room was cleaned every day as well. We were just so... More

I've stayed at a lot of hostals and this was a really nice experience. The beds are sturdy as to not make noise everytime you move and the mattresses are new and comfortable. I stayed in a 4 bed door with shared bath. The instant hot water worked great, they keep the room clean and even changed the shower curtain... More

Basic, clean hostel with very helpful staff. The location is pretty central and they don't fill up as fast as some of the better known hostels near-by, so you can usually get a bed or room there. Cubbies to lock your things and HOT WATER showers (in rather small bathrooms). You can also book buses and tours at the front... More

Hostal Antigua is one of the more "youth hostel"-style ones, so you'll have quite a couple of rules to follow. But, I have to say: I've never stayed at a hostel with such a professional and well-organized front desk, it's hotel quality :) Conchy is very helpful giving you tips about the area and activities around. The hostel is central... More

My friend told me to stay at Hostal Antigua and I am very glad I took her advice. This hostal is sparkling clean, the beds are comfortable, the sheets smell fresh, there is a bathroom in each dorm which is great and I love the upstairs balcony with a very nice kitchen with all the basics one would need. There... More

I just checked in but being in a few hostels in Antigua this has a nice vibe. Very quiet, calm, charming little place. I am in a 4 bed dorm. And yes they arent huge rooms but It feels cozy rather than cramped. I am only here one night so I think it will be perfect for me. If your... More

We stumbled across this hostel while failing to find another hostel with the wrong address in the Lonely Planet Guide. A lucky mistake! We were immediately struck by how friendly and helpful the English-speaking reception staff were. We were also lucky to get the large dormitory. Clean, spacious, airy, with good solid bunks. Hot water in the showers. The other... More
