Great little hostel! If you travel like my friend and I do, you end up having a million mini requests for the hostel staff (ex. can we pay via paypall, can you book this for us, can you call them, can you stand on your head for 5 minutes). The staff was really what made the difference for us. Not to say that the rooms aren't good. The rooms are nice and cozy with foam mattresses which aren't crazy loud when someone on the top bunk needs to move. In the end it's really helpful to have a hostel staff that will give you advice and help you make your trip a little smoother. Thanks so much Basecamp!
Semana Santa note: The hostel company had a few (more) requests like high percentage room deposits and booking three nights, but when you realize how insane Antigua is during Semana Santa you can understand the requests. The staff was very polite and helpful in explaining the additional requests for this special week. If you really have a concern with requirements I would suggest just talking to the staff and seeing what can be done. They're here to help!
