“Like no other”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Holistico is like no hostel you have ever seen before. The service is exceptional. Sergio (the owner) is a great guy. When we were there he had organized a BBQ and even the drinks were for free! He also had this big cake for dessert. When your drink was empty he made sure you got a new one within a minute. The room was nice and clean. Shower and toilet were clean as well. The included breakfast is great. You can choose from 4 or 5 different things and everything is made fresh. The cookies are so good! The location is perfect, everything is within walking distance.

We stayed in holistico for 3 nights and then returned again after visiting the lake for another night as we loved it so much! The staff are all very friendly and helpful, the free breakfasts are excellent, and the open bar was always appreciated!

The whole hostel has a really nice vibe and everyone just sits out in the courtyard chatting to each other but is always quiet at night.

Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Antigua!

You will understand why this hostel gets the great reviews as soon as you step in. The crew is exceptional, friendly and helping you in any possible way. The whole place is well looked after and the courtyard is great for hanging out and meeting "the family".
Free stuff through out the day, like tee, coffee, cookies, etc. Even cuba libres and beers are free! Really don't know how the owner ends up making money with it, as you get so much more than what you pay for! But he definitely creates an incredible atmosphere which makes people want to stay longer.
The breakfast is as you'd get it in a restaurant.
Eventhough people get together and drink (I'm sure you will have a few drinks ;) ) it's quiet after 10pm at the latest. The beds are comfy, people have been very respectfull while I was there, so great sleep is pretty much guaranteed.

It's a relatively small hostel with 28 beds, but that's the beauty of it.
And when you book, have a look at the specials that Sergio offers every week!

Great value! You will not be disappointed, so try !... unless you are an unfriendly ****, in this case, don't ruin this peace of paradise for others ;) ...

Loved staying here at Holistico. As with others, I felt the good vibes immediately upon arrival. The staff are amazing. Always there to help you with food, drinks, and travels to new locations. The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have a great time at this hostel. If your looking to relax and have few brews at night, this is the spot. When returning to Holistico before leaving back home, I had a sense of being apart of the Holistico Family. Can't beat the free breakfast and happy hour. Love this place!

This hostel is a must when visiting Antigua. The staff go above and beyond in their efforts to meet your every need. The host (owner) is a fun loving character who is always up to party and provides plenty of advise on tours, getting around town, bars ect. There is a sense of family within the hostel, while still be a suited to a younger crowd. Add to that a free cooked breakfast each morning and free alcohol every night and your onto a winner.

It is not often that you want to stay in a destination longer simply because of your hostel, but this was the case with holistico!
From the moment you enter the front gate, you feel part of the family. Rarely are you given a tour of a hostel, but again this was the case here. Sergio showed us all the important areas of the hostel which made everything so much simpler and was an amazing added touch to our stay. When we encountered a minor hiccup during our stay regarding a tour, the issue was addressed and dealt with more than competently by Sergio.
The rest of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful with everything as well.
We can't thank you enough for making our stay in Antigua so fabulous and we can't wait to come back and visit!
We'll be sending everyone your way! Thanks again, Bodie and Sarah
