Absolutely loved this hostel. Really chilled which is what we needed. Fantastic breakfast, fruit, beans, eggs, potatoes ect. Really good way to start the day. The tour office here was really helpful. Eliminated walking around town trying to find the best deals. Rooms were clean, staff helpful and lovely cleaners :)

This was a great hostel to visit Antigua from. The rates are reasonable, about $11/person/night. We got a private room for 4 for $44/night. The hostel is SPOTLESS, and the women clean the rooms every day, which I have never encountered in a hostel before. The bathrooms are all shared, but they are also very clean. There is a nice...

Beautifull hostel with big clean rooms and bathrooms. They are constantly cleaning the place, it is spotless! The rooms are decorated with typical Guatemalean things, it's beautifull. It's really quiet and calm on the terrace. The breakfast is included, it's a big buffet and it's DELICIOUS! The crew is really friendly, they help you with everything you need. Booking a... More

This hostel is really good. The breakfast will be the best you get at any hostel in Central America, the rooms are very clean, the bathrooms are very clean and the showers are hot. The pries are on the higher side for a hostel, but if you've got the budget (still very reasonable) I recommend this joint.

Enough for the guests and cleaned 3 or 4 times a day. They offer a delicious breakfast, with a daily variety. You can also use the kitchen or put things in the... More

This place has good wifi, traditional decoration and a nice terrace with views of the surrounding volcanoes. Immense breakfast, withn pancakes, burritos and fruit - get everything! It´s quiet for a good night´s sleep but has a nice terrace to mingle with other travellers or just hang out with friends. Very hot showers!

Pros: the rooms and beds were excellent and extremely clean, including the bathrooms. The staff are constantly cleaning. It is very nice and high quality for a cheap price, especially for the area. Nice rooftop common area. Really good breakfast included, you just have to get up early to eat it. Cons: small kitchen is very difficult to use All... More

This wonderful hostel is spotless, it's beautifully decorated and they take care of every little detail. The rooms have comfy beds, TV and fan and the ones on the second floor are lovely, with a view to the yellow church and volcanoes... The terrace is also really nice with sofas, tables and chairs and hammocks. The breakfast they serve is... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights at the yellow house and thought it was the best hostel we stayed at on all our travels. It didn't feel like a hostel, absolutely spotless, rooms were nicely decorated and chill area was very relaxing/sociable. Every morning I woke up excited for breakfast which was delicious/ freshly made with much variety,... More
