I stayed here with friends during Semana Santa and was really impressed. Breakfast was delicious (fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice, coffee, and a wide spread of savory hearty food), the location was fantastic (quiet neighborhood but very close to all the action), the employees were helpful, and it was SO CLEAN. We booked a tour through them and it was... More

We stayed here for two nights and a single night on our way through to Honduras. It is an amazing place with great views on the roof terrace complete with hammocks, sofas and great WiFi. The rooms are well looked after and decorated with traditional furnishings. The staff are the friendliest we have ever came across and nothing is to... More

In Dec 2014 - January 2015, my partner and I embarked on a two week vacation in Guatemala and Belize. Our first destination was the Yellow House and we both agreed this is the best hostel we stayed in during our entire trip. The hostel is centrally located though still a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of... More

Was not easy to get a reservation at this place - cause they just accept bookings by e-mail - but totally worth it! Yellow house has a great atmosphere, full of color and places to chill out. Is quiet and the rooms are comfortable, helping you to get in the mood of the city, that's also lovely. They offer a... More

My husband and I stayed in room 10, with one double bed and a private terrace. The room is on the second floor and has huge windows that view the volcano. Waking up to that view each day was amazing. The Yellow House Hostel has a fantastic and free breakfast each morning. The staff is all local and are very... More

What a gem of a hostel this is! Extremely clean, beautifully designed and kept to the local deco. Staff was cleaning it throughout the day. The free breakfast will keep you going for the whole day (yummy!!!), the shower is hot and lovely, the terrace has amazing views and comfy sofas. Sofi and other girls at reception could not be...

We stayed in the dorm here in early February 2015 for 4 nights and had an excellent stay. The dorm we stayed in (at the front of the building was nice and spacious). Beds were made daily which was a nice touch! The shared bathrooms were absolutely spotless! They were constantly being cleaned after each use! And showers were hot!!!... More

I stayed a night in the Yellow House on arriving in Antigua. I chose the hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. As most of the reviews point out, the breakfast (included in the price) is fantastic. Fresh fruit, omelette, frijoles, herb potatoes, tomatoes etc. The staff are, without exception, very friendly & go out of their way to... More

background info - we never traveled prior to this experience, and spent 5 weeks in Guatemala moving around the entire country. Casa Amarilla was our first hostel. We walked in w.o a reservation and they gave us a room. It seemed expensive at first and then we realized it was actually very, very good value. Beds ranged (currently) at Q80... More
