I planned to stay at El hostal for only one night this time in Antigua, however I ended up staying four. The dorms are 80Q (which I know is above the normal price) but the showers and the breakfast alone were worth that! The dorms are clean and they make your bed for you each day. The hot water showers were probably the best that I have had since I started traveling in Central America. The breakfast was fantastic also, I think there were four different options for you to choose from.
The guests at the hostel seemed to all be in transit for another place when I was there so if you were traveling solo it might have been difficult to make new friends. Thats not the hostels fault, just bad timing really. Highly recommend!More
