Dorm rooms are comfortable but a little tight for room an some of the lockers need replacing. The kitchen was well equipped, TV room was a nice touch, WiFi was reliable and the showers were pretty good. Everything was clean enough but it might be time for a deep clean soon. Location in the city was okay, supermarket and main...

Firstly: Couldn't ask for nicer people to run this place. Both my boyfriend and I got quite sick when we were here (we think from Semuc Champey). They were so helpful. Moved us to a private room for no additional cost even though they lost the business for the dorm beds we were in. Called doctors for us as our...

Very basic hostel. Rooms are comfortable and cool enough. Has a kitchen and small lounge where you can watch tv. Toilets and showers were alright, although there was trouble with one of the showers because you couldn't lower the temperature. Staff were friendly and nice as well. Laundry shop next door too!

The only things that prevent...

We stayed here 3 nights and had a great time. The dorm room was a little hot at night but there provided filtered water, a nice rooftop resting place and good wifi. We did the Pacaya tour through them and really enjoyed it.

I recommend this hostel. Owner is very helpful and polite. The terrace has an amazing view and is a good place to chill. People I met were also very relaxed. Cheapest option in town and facilities (for the price) are just fine. Enjoy Antigua!
