“Terrific budget find - more than a hostel, great dinners, awesome staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2010

We have nothing but praise for Casa Jacaranda in Antigua. We spent 5 nights there with our 8 and 10 year olds in a room with 2 sets of bunks (so it was private to us). They also have some rooms with double beds that are private as well. The baths were kept clean as well as the rooms. The staff was always so helpful and courteous, even going so far as to play darts with our son. Aside from the darts, the kids enjoyed the back courtyard and hammocks as well as the large screen tv (after little tv for the month, they enjoyed relaxing with a show during rainy afternoons). Despite seeing no other guests eat dinner there, we decided to our last night and it was delicious - we highly recommend it. The bunk mattresses were quite solid so if you like a soft mattress, you should probably look elsewhere. Otherwise, 5 stars all the way around. The location is decent, not far from the market/bus station and the inexpensive restaurants along the blvd. there and a short walk downtown in the other direction.

I would recommend Casa Jacaranda to anybody. I had a fantastic stay. I travelled central america for a good few months and this hostel was one of the best... great value for money & included a free breakfast. The rooms were very clean, nice large garden with hammocks, flat screen tv & internet. Best of all though were the staff who were very friendly & keen to help however they could. We could arrange our tours from the hostel itself which saved time & was cheap. If you go to Antigua (which i recommend) then i would definately stay here.

we stayed here 5 times and we loved it. The free breakfast is amazing, the staff is very friendly and always there for you. Very clean, good location, free internet
For relaxing you can use the hammocks in the gardin.
For us the best hostel in Guatamala and we travelled for 2 months in this country.

i traveled to guatemala in april 2010 with a friend . we arrived in antigua and found casa jacaranda .
from start to finnish we had a great stay including very nice food a good room a garden to relax in. very welcoming family run buisness and not to forget the tour guide information in house also ! most days we looked though a folder in the hostel and selected tours that could be pre arranged and booked by the hostel staff which was very easy for us and went well.
