We stayed here for one night and weren't sure what to expect on arrival as they had very little english. Turned out to be a cute family run bnb style place. Rooms were simple with a towel provided and showers were hot. The breakfast in morning was a choice of eggs and was lovely! A little spanish might be helpful... More

Stayed in Casa Shalom for 4 nights in a three person dorm back in January I paid 50Q. It is by far the best deal in all of Antigua, they had electric showers that if you kept the flow rate low enough were scalding hot. They provided a free breakfast each morning of eggs, watermelon, bread, beans, biscuit, and coffee.... More

The hostel was very nice and the rooms are clean! Breakfast was everyday perfect and delicious! The rooftop is perfect to sit at the evening and listen the sound of the the city. The only point why it not get full 5 points is the private bathroom. This is so small(1,2 square meters) and strange electrical connection.

We stayed for three nights in total. Location is great, staff is attentive, kitchen is fine, breakfast is not bad, rooms are ok. I would gladly come back. I don't understand what do people expect for this price in Antigua.

There were cockroaches running around in our bedroom and bathroom, but that wasn't even the worst part. There were random hairs in our bed and on the floor in the room and bathroom. The hot water ran out really quickly - my partner got a hot shower but mine was cold. Advertised as having wifi but only works if you... More

Takes basic to new heights. Beds are threadbare with pillows like blocks of wood. The shower leaked so badly it poured into the bedroom. The breakfast was served on a landing with washing drying around the one table. It is obvious no maintenance has been carried out for a long time. We only stayed one uncomfortable night and went to... More

Over the course of our trip we ended up in Antigua three times (advice - book you accommodation ahead of time). The first time we tried all the popular, high-rated hostels and had no luck. We ended up at Casa Shalom. The additional two times we came to Antigua, we just stayed here knowing there will likely be space and... More
