Every staff member was so lovely and helpful and the view lives up to the hype! Rooms were simple but good size. Bathrooms however were not ideal, bad smell and cold showers. But every other aspect was great.

Grace, thank you so much for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay overall. The problem with the smell in the bathrooms is not due to uncleanliness as they are cleaned at least twice a day. The problem is with the ancient sewage system. We will take a look at the showers though, from time to time... More

Right up your alley if your a 20 something traveler, looking to meet people and chill at a fun party hostel. Staff is friendly, rooms are simple. Shared bathrooms. Dorm rooms or privates. We paid $21 for a room with 2 beds, no bathroom. They can set up tours for you. They also have a great rooftop terrace with an... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Terrace. We really appreciate your input and you are right, our normal crowd is the partying sort. We always try to make it clear that we have a party (and sometimes loud) atmosphere! Hope to see you again! Maggie More

The staff are OK, but the owner went the extra mile to be friendly. Good location in beautiful Antigua, pretty basic facilities but the essentials are covered. Wonderful view from the terrace - not surprisingly!

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 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.
