“This place looks new......But it is not”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

I asked if they just opened and I was told no. This place is spotless. The rooms have a nice bed 2 night stands reading lamps. It has the works.
They had a special for 20US a night as well.
They also have a kitchen..also looked new that was on the roof with a view.
Also they let us keep our dogs at the hostel.....We clean up after them.
Staff was great as well.
Not a party hostel.
They need one thing drapes on the windows for the light, you can not see in the glass.
They have other hostels in town as well. I have stayed at one and it was just as nice.
Free Wifi as well.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in a private room and found it to be great value for money. Our room was spacious, clean, the beds were comfortable and we had wi-fi and satellite tv. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hostel is less than 2 blocks from the main square.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

We stayed at a different hostel on our first night in Antigua and terribly regretted the experience. The walls were paper thin and the hostel was filled with loud young students. We switched to Hostal Antigua the next day and were amazed with the friendliness, cleanliness, and quietness of the hostel. We stayed here a total of 3 nights. The staff are very accommodating. They held onto our bags while we went away on overnight trips, for a very small fee. They let us check in early and check out late as long as there was room availability. There's only a small number of rooms available (6, I believe) so you're guaranteed a quiet and relaxing experience. I'd definitely stay at this place again if I ever come back to Antigua.

Room Tip: Make reservations if possible.

We stayed in Hostal Antigua just for one day but enjoyed it so much compared to the other hostels in town. The room was very clean. Location in the quieter part of town, yet very close to the center. Staff was VERY pleasant an helpful. Internet working with no problems and the price of th room was very reasonable.
