The owner sergio really goes above and beyond to make sure you have a good time in Antigua. The prices are great, rooms and bathrooms are clean, and free breakfast, coffee and water. You definitely won't be let down if you spend a few days or even a week at holistico!

Nice clean hostal with a beautiful courtyard and roof terrace. I stayed on a friday night and when you check in you are given a free drink. Sergio soon brought out a plate of food for people to munch on and was topping up people wine, rum and cokes and giving out more beer all for free. Plate after plate of awesome food kept coming out and when we finally went out for dinner I just got something small because of all the delicious goodies which kept coming out. Sergio was super helpful and you can book shuttles right in the hostal and they will pick you up at the door.

Well located, super clean, nice vibe, nice service, super staff ... It's definitely the place to stay in Antigua! We spent 4 nights there (1 in dorms and 3 in private room) and the owner Sergio was just amazing! He helped out for everything, from booking activities, hotels, shuttles etc ... We all went out to dance salsa with him ...
The terasse have an amazing view on the volcano !
Ohh and I can't forget the huge breakfast we had there every morning! Just delicious :)
I can recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Antigua :)

If you come at night like I did you will be welcomed into an enchanting atmosphere. In the morning you get personal service for breakfast with a smiling face and you can tell the food is cooked with love. Everything individually made. You will find yourself staying longer than you originally planned. Kindness, Cleanliness and a welcoming feeling surrounds this place. Starting with the staff and the other backpackers. GREAT LOCATION. If you get a chance to meet the owner it will be the BEST experience of your life!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE Holistico!

Room Tip: Just Go and sleep there!

Our only regret was we didn't come to this hostel earlier. It is amazing! Sergio the owner is by far the most accommodating and friendly person you will ever meet! The second we checked in he chatted to us and told us that Holistico is home for us.
It is spotlessly clean. Nothing is too much trouble. Great location. Close to markets and cafes. Free coffee and tea and water.
The free breakfast is amazing. We want the pesto recipe!
The rooftop terrace is such a great place for relaxing and meeting other travellers.
Sergio even joined us for lunch on our 3rd day and showed us some excellent places to eat and drink. What a host!
We only booked one night but we loved it so much it turned into 3 nights. Sergio makes sure everyone is happy, well hydrated and enjoying themselves. The first night we were there they had salsa lessons. The 2nd night was an awesome reggae band. There is a great atmosphere but if you need an early night that's fine - its really quiet past 10pm.
Lucia, Pablo and Anna are also amazing and super helpful. We were sad to leave!
We cannot recommend this hostel enough and Sergio we now regard as a great friend. Awesome!

Great hostel, very clean, newly renovated and nicely decorated. The staff are great, real nice and friendly. It is one of those hostels that just works, felt very comfortable here. So easy to meet and chat to people.
Great laundry service, in fact everything about holistico is great.
The location is perfect just two blocks from the main square.
Free tea/coffee and biscuits all day make a lovely touch. There is a courtyard and a roof top terrace both are perfect for relaxing or having a beer with other guests. So far our favourite hostel of Central America.

Fantastic hostel that ticks all the boxes. It is super clean with spacious dorms and all the facilities you need. Sergio the owner went out of his way to organise buses, trips and transfers and is just an absolutely top bloke. He has a wonderful bunch of staff who were all as equally friendly, welcoming and helpful. There is a lovely garden and rooftop terrace which is great for chilling in during the day and ideal for some cheeky beers and wine in the evening. It is in the perfect location for access to great bars, restaurants, the markets and central park.
It may be slightly more expensive than other hostels in Antigua but the amazing home cooked al a carte breakfast, free water, coffee, tea and snacks all day and the service they provide make the few extra dollars well worth it!
