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.

One of the best hostels that I have stayed in. The woman work solidly to keep this place clean and tidy and provide a brilliant free breakfast in the morning. 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

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
