I stayed here in January 2012. I loved the hostel. All the guests were very friendly and the hostel felt like home. There are a lot of communal areas like a livingroom with a TV and DVDS which is very comfortable, the kitchen is the best kept and nicest hostel kitchen I have seen! There's another table upstairs, plus the rooftop which is the best part of it all! The views of the city and the volcano are beautiful. The dorm is small but the beds were the most comfortable of all the hostels I stayed at in Guatemala. It's quiet yet it's social.... it's the perfect place to stay. Also the hostel offers the volcano tour for a cheaper price than the tour agencies. They also offer shuttle service to different places and like others said the woman working speaks english really well. You feel safe, at home and all around good about this place when you stay :) I recommend it to anyone going to Antigua!
