We didn't stay at the hostel but booked our busticket to Nicaragua there. On the departure day we found out that the bus had already left one day earlier and that there must have been a communication problem between the reception lady and us. The hostel let us spend one night for free and gave us the possibility to explain... More

Not long after touching down In Guatemala City we made our way to Antigua. The hostel is situated a couple of blocks from the town square. I had been in contact with a couple members of staff previously whilst pre booking a room (They only take reservations two weeks in advance) ALL staff were very helpful and went out of... More

This place is near the centre of town. There are plenty of drinking nights on offer, not for me but it's cheap and the rooms are pretty decent. They also arranged all our buses and a hike up the volcano

you can let you luggage overnight for really cheap. They are fast to answer you back by email and really flexible to change you reservation dates. The night guy was really friendly and funny, he wished me a merry christmas when I left... it wasnt even halloween yet. They have a nice view from the rooftop bar.

whats good? The bar on top of the hostel, on the terrace is pretty cool! The service is nice, cool guys working there! especially Dieter is great fun. Whats bad? not enough sockets in the room, small room and NOT ENOUGH BATHROOMS/SHOWER. Overall a good place to stay, when u wanna meet nice people and drink with them.

Roof top bar with a wicked view, cheap drinks, great staff that are more then happy to give you pointers and whats going on around town and the beds are spot on. What more do you want out of a hostel! Great Location to walk round town and see what the city has to offer. Put it on your list.

One of my favorite hostels ever! Great vibe, great location, friendly staff, cheap booze, what more can you ask for!? The rooms were clean, a little small, but you won't want to be spending time in your room when you're in the beautiful city of Antigua. The rooftop bar/restaurant was a chill hangout during the day (with a great view)... More

I should have written this review a long time ago but forgot. Their kindness has not been forgotten though. This hostel were great to me and my friend when we ran into a few problems in Antigua at the beginning of July. The staff were amazing and kind doing everything they could to help. The hostel itself has amazing views... More

great view of Antigua from the bar. Really helpful staff. I have stayed in a few places in Antigua travelling through and this is definitely my favourite. The dorms only have 4 beds rather than some others which cram people in

I didn't dislike this place, it just also wasn't in my top 10 list for hostels stayed in. The rooftop terrace is very nice, and the booze is very decently priced. (Happy hour til 8 is advertised, but they charged me the discounted price every time.) The dorms are small and sparse, but the beds are comfy. Plugs are very... More

Hi Dana, Thanks for your review. We always appreciate input from our guests and are glad that you enjoyed our very long happy hour! Unfortunately, Lonely Planet mentions that we offered free breakfast. In the past we did so but made the decision a while back to amp up our breakfast offerings and charge a nominal price (15Q or about... More
