“Great relaxing hostel with helpful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I stayed in this hostel for a full week in a private room. Overall the rooms were very clean. The staff was very good as well. I returned very late multiple nights and the staff was both friendly and professional. Although there weren't many people there when I went, I was quickly able to meet other travelers outside of the hostel. The location is also on two major streets, well lit and safe for tourists. Breakfast was alright. The staff additionally was very adept at understanding English. Overall, I would stay again if I were in Antigua.

had some friends staying there, they loved it, clean room, breakfast included, clean shower with hot water, located in a quiet but lively part of town, bars and restaurants are close by! the hostal is family owned and they are always there to help in the best way they can; price is very affordable, is a good place to set as base camp for exploring the town!

Room Tip: get private rooms...

I stayed at Hacia El Sur for a few weeks and was very pleased with everything about it. It was very clean, the breakfast was delicious and the staff was so kind and helpful! I can't recommend this place enough.

Francisco has just recently open and is daily making improvements and all for the better;
Fluent in english he goes out of his way to accommodate, very knowledgable, his family is great
and also very helpful; Antigua has many attractions out of the bustle and hustle of big city;
A great place to unwind or rest up for the next leg of you journey, I had intended to stay 3 days and stayed 3 weeks.
While visiting if you need something, just ask and Frisco will help you find it.

I only stayed here 1 night but thought this was a great place to stay - clean, a very comfy bed, spacious dorm room with lockers, a delicious choice of breakfasts included in the price, a nice garden at the back plus an indoor social area and nice friendly owners. In short, a great place to stay and I would go back!
