I only stayed here for one night and left early in the morning so I didn't end up using any of the common areas or getting breakfast. The rooms and bathrooms were really clean, but I ended up going to Casa Shalom next door because here I was in a 6 bedroom dorm where people wanted to turn off the... More

We stayed at Yellow House for 3 nights a few weeks ago. The staff there is wonderful- everyone is very friendly and took time to make sure we were taken care of. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean, and as mentioned before, they have an amazing breakfast included in the cost of your room. Our internet didn't work in the... More

Yellow House was totally a fine place to stay, but I'm not sure I understand the rave reviews. Yes, it is super clean and I give it props for that, the bathrooms are indeed spotless. I stayed in a private double and it was cramped at best, but the beds were super comfortable, and again, very clean. Kitchen looked decent,... More

This was one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. It was extremely clean, I hardly remember a time when someone was not cleaning. They spent over an hour cleaning our dorm room every morning and even hoovered the mattresses, very impressive! It does not really feel like a hostel, more like a B&B or a guesthouse. The... More

I stayed here twice while travelling through Guatemala. The first time was with my boyfriend in a double room which was very nice and clean. Had two double beds which were clean and reasonable comfortable. The breakfast was awesome, however we were in the room downstairs and at breakfast time there is no escaping the noise from around 6.30 through... More

We stayed there with our 2 kids - 6 months old and 2.5 years old. I wish all budget places were like this. Each room is different and has lovely character to it with nice guatemalan fabrics on beds and walls. Nice, good quality bedlinen (cannot be taken for granted in budget places). Comfortable beds. And the best breakfast in... More

I will preface this by saying that I didn't actually stay here, but it was because their service was absolutely terrible. However, I interacted with them enough to be able to write an honest review. I first called one evening to try and make a reservation. I was told to call back during the day when someone would be able... More

Spotless, comfortable, cozy, good staff, affordable prices, beautiful rooms and a legendary breakfast buffet. There's nothing bad to say about this place, loved every second of our stay here and they seriously have the best showers in all of Central America, better than most anywhere, in fact =)

Yellow House is a wonderful place to stay in Antigua, and by far my favourite hostel I've stayed in in Central America. The staff are all wonderful and helpful, the hostel is the cleanest I've ever been in (including hostels in Europe!) - all of the mattresses are hoovered daily! There is constantly someone cleaning. The BREAKFAST is the best... More
