There are plenty of reasons to stay here and the downfalls would not stop me from staying again.
You can definitely get a fairly good night's sleep here. This is a quiet hostel (mostly) with no party scene. I stayed in a private room with a private bathroom. The bathroom was fine, a bit old perhaps but definitely clean. There was some damp on the walls but the water was hot and constant.
Both the hostel and the room were safe and clean. Good security and constantly-cleaning housekeeping staff. All of the staff are friendly but mostly keep to themselves.
The room I had was a good size and although I was told I had a brand new bed it was one of the most uncomfortable beds I have slept on. The pillows are terrible too .. almost non-existent.
There is occasional noise at night but that is a problem with other travellers not the hostel.
The cleaning staff get to work early in the morning so don't expect a lie in!
I stayed here for over a week and none of these things bothered me enough to move. The price and the location are good and there are not a lot of options in this price bracket in Antigua so I would recommend Hostal Antigua.
