Located just one and a half blocks from the central plaza this hostel features what you'd expect. Very clean rooms, hot water, kitchen, common area on the roof-top, stable and fast wifi. The staff is friendly and helpful with tours and transport. Security is good (keys to dorm and big locker, front-door closed at night). The foor-bed dorm is tiny... More

Offered a rooftop terrace with some minimal views, but still a nice outdoor patio area. The room was a bit more expensive than other hostel's in the area but it was the first I found on a long trip from the US to Antigua so we took it! Would recommend shopping around Antigua before making any commitments. The room was... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend on our first visit to Guatemala. The airport pick up was perfect and the hotel was very clean. Rooms are small but functional. Amazing location and friendly staff, highly recommend.

This is my go-to in Antigua, I've been back 3 times now. It's clean, quiet and respectful. The attention to detail blows my mind (they change and wash the shower curtains in the dorm everyday!) also the are helpful and friendly with whatever I need. I always feel safe. There is hot water, a beautiful terrace with views of the... More

A hostel obsessed with cleanliness ! Staff appeared to be permanently cleaning the floor and rooms. Staff were particularly friendly, especially Flore de Maria in reception. The roof terrace is pleasant & there is a kitchen but I didn't use it so I don't know how well equipped it was. The 4 bed dorms are very tight for four people... More

The plàce is very much ok and not in best shape. No breakfast and still 37.50USD? Even with brekky its way too much for Antigua. Find another place at easily 20-30$ or even an airbnb for less! Kitchen is super small and poorly equiped. Almost no natural light in the room.

Thank you for your review even if it is not as accurate as it should be. The price of our hostel is fare enough for the type of service it offers, high speed 5 Mbps Wi-Fi that is rare in a hostel the size of ours, anti-stress beds, clean sheets that are changed on a daily basis. Our hostel may... More

I stayed at Hostel Antigua for about a week. It was my first experience staying at a hostel, and I couldn't have been happier with it! The hostel is in a great location; it's close to just about everything you need with a full grocery store only a few blocks away. There is free wifi, a full kitchen, hot showers... More

Antigua hostel it's the blue house. Its clean and has a great location (a few meters from the Central Park and everything). The rooms are very clean and nice. The place take care of his safety and always make sure the entrance door is closed. The chicken is clean and has almost everything you need.
