“The Hotel Owner Knows How To Speak English”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

It's hard to find a hotel which can talk with in English. But, this one does the job.

I was staying here for a night when I traveled around Guatemala. 30USD for a double room, sounds expensive? No, it's two bed in a room. It's really good price!

Also, what I like most is the view upstairs! Wow, cool views without words. You can look at the stars at night and the mountain far away in the daytime! I love it. Even though I do lived in a better hostel later, but the merits of this hostel cannot be eliminated.

Room Tip: get a double room and you can lock things in.

We stayed here for 2 nights in Antigua. The staff was friendly and helpful. The shared bathroom was very clean, but there was only one on the second floor (which seemed to be enough). Seems like a good place to meet other people, as there is a communal kitchen and a rooftop terrace which has a good view of the volcanoes. The location is a little far out from "central" Antigua, but only by a few minutes walk. There is laundry service nearby. Would recommend this place to anyone who's on a budget!

I stayed at Villa Esthela by myself for a few days in May and had a really relaxing and great experience. The management is all extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful with booking trips up Volcan Pacaya.

Although the kitchen and bathrooms were shared and the room small, everything was spotless, well maintained and full of character. Villa Esthela's long alleyway entrance helps you escape the noise of the central market, bars and restaurants at night, making for .The rooftop bar is a great place to read a day away in a hammock.

Great value for the independent, budget traveler!
