“Great value, great breakfast”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

This is the only hostel I stayed at while in Antigua, but compared to other hostels around Guatemala this was perfect. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are clean with hot water, the breakfast options are amazing. There is also a locker for every bed so you will be able to lock up your stuff (bring your own padlock). It is helpful if you know Spanish because many of the staff only speak Spanish. I would highly recommend this hostel, it was a real treat after staying at a terrible one in Flores.

My boyfriend and I started our backpacking trip in Antigua and El Hostal came highly recommended to us from a friend who lived here. We tried to book it 2 weeks before we came for a private room and it was booked solid. We were lucky enough to spend one night here and wished we could have stayed here the entire time we were in Guatemala. It is definitely a clean, friendly place with excellent staff who are always willing to help. My advice would be to book early, especially if you are looking for a private room. We stayed in a few other places in Antigua, but this one was definitely the best, and very reasonable for backpackers!

I stayed here for an entire month and loved every minute of it. The staff is great and will go beyond to please their guests. Clean rooms, clean restrooms and delicious to-order-breakfast! Great location too!! The only downside is the loud bar (Cafe No Se) across the street, but hey, if the noise keeps you up walk across the street and join it!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms located next to the street (noise)

This is a wonderful place to stay. My room was very spacious, clean and very comfortable.
The free breakfast is fantastic. It is located only a few blocks from the center of town and close to many clubs and restaurants. The owners are just wonderful people who helped us with everything they could, including travel and lodgings at Lake Atitlan. The communal dinner they serve each Monday night was more like a family gathering than a dinner out. Can't imagine a better stay than what I had

The owners Gabi and Clay are very friendly guys and will try and accommodate you where they can. This place has an excellent open courtyard where one can enjoy a quiet extensive free breakfast menu in the mornings. I have been on various occasions to Antigua and what i really like about this place, which is in the price range of "cheaper hostels" hard to come across, are the real hot showers without electrical wiring. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Across the street you will find the bar to be In Antigua, called cafe No Se.
We will be back!
