I absolutely loved it and I will no doubt stay there again. It's all shared bathrooms, but it is a very clean hostal. Breakfast was amazing too and the staff was so friendly! Loved the hammock area, it has an amazing view of the volcanoes! Definitely recommed it!!!

Yellow house was a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Antigua. The private rooms were lovely with big windows and fans to keep cool. The lounge area has great views on the volcano and comfy furniture. The breakfasts were amazing and staff friendly and helpful. Very clean. Kitchen is small, so if more than one person cooking it...

The Yellow House is a lovely little hostel. Best part definitely the free breakfast! Lots and lots of really yummy food. Place was very clean, showers were good. Lovely roof terrace with hammocks and chairs. Helpful staff available to book tours and shuttles. It's not a party hostel so don't come here if that's what you're after, has definitely more... More

We just stayed one night but we were really surprised. Super nice staff (especially at the breakfast), the rooms decorated to make you feel a little like at home. And best: the breakfast included. Burrito, huevos, pancake...whatever you wish for. Chilled people, every age, no party hostel. Loved it.

The staff are helpful and the hostel provides lots of information about tours and shuttles. It is very central, has a lovely terrace and is chilled out. Wee stayed in... More

Location is great and convenient for all of Antigua. Hostel is kept very clean, with regular cleaning and loads of staff. Breakfast is very tasty and eating/chilling in the rooftop was really really lovely. Rooms and small but comfortable and really nicely decorated with Guatemalan throws and art. There is a decent amount of noise early in the morning but... More

We stayed here two times in total. Beforehand Sofi was really helpful with our booking and our tons of questions. The hostel itself is lovely! It has a really nice layout, comfortable common area, four shared bathrooms (we never had to wait for the toilet and only short waits for showers) and our room (no. 12) was really nice with... More

I spent a month in Antigua, nad in that time visited many hostels. Being a little older (34) I was looking for a social environment without the raucousness of a party hostel. Yellow House was perfect. the staff were friendly and fairly bilingual. Beer cheap, location fantastic. Close to the market and parque Central. Waking up to a a free... More

We have stayed here for 4 night and it's the best place we've ever stayed in for the same price! It's SO clean, the breakfast is massive and fills you up till dinner and the chill out erratic upstairs is perfect for late afternoon hammock swinging and book reading! So relaxed here and so friendly and also very safe, we... More

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
