My friend and I are wrapping up two weeks staying at Villa Esthela. This is our first experience with hostels, and it's a fantastic first experience. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the room is lovely, the price is right, and the location is great (not too close to downtown Antigua). Would recommend for sure. The only things that prevent... More

Originally went two three monkeys which was booked out so they referred my brother and I here. Quiet location with beautiful rooftop views and hammocks! Friendly helpful staff who spoke English fluently. Spent the next night at three monkeys and wished I had stayed here! Better, quiet dorms, still centrally located and had lovely kitchenette with free water. At only... More

We stayed here 3 nights and had a great time. The dorm room was a little hot at night but there provided filtered water, a nice rooftop resting place and good wifi. We did the Pacaya tour through them and really enjoyed it.

I recommend this hostel. Owner is very helpful and polite. The terrace has an amazing view and is a good place to chill. People I met were also very relaxed. Cheapest option in town and facilities (for the price) are just fine. Enjoy Antigua!

I really liked this hostel. There were nice people hanging around, well equipped kitchen, clean bathrooms and friendly people. Not in the centre, but in a nice street and good to walk. Highlight: the roof terrace. Really cool and chill place with a nice view. Dorms are okay, bed not the most comfortable.

Booking the hostel was easy with their online system and the owner helped me arrange a transfer right from Guatemala City Airport to the door of the hostel for a great price. (Side note: the driver was a delight and even gave me a little city tour as we arrived to Antigua!) I planned to stay there 3 nights, but... More

This is a nice, cheap hostel with friendly staff and a very casual vibe. We stayed both in the dorm room and in a private double and the beds were comfortable in both rooms. Dorm could use some extra storage as people's luggage was all over the room and it was quite messy and crowded. Showers were hot with decent... More

This hostel was really cheap (50q per night in dorm) and had a nice roof top with a view of theerupting volcano Fuego. Also a bar upstairs. I slept in two different beds, first one was horribly uncomfortable with metal strings sticking up from the mattress but second one was all good. The dorm upstairs had no where to put... More
