The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the hostel was quiet just like we wanted. The view from the roof is unbeatable. However, there was no hot water in the showers and the beds were uncomfortable. Not anything a seasoned backpacker can't handle, though.

Really enjoyed our time in this hostel. In relation to a previous review, sure the walls are thin and unfortunately if people talk right outside your door you will hear it...but its a hostel, its kind of normal! Thought the price was excellent for a private room. Loved the bathrooms, very clean and showers had hot water. Roof top terrace...

If you want to get away from Antigua party hostels, come here. Has a relaxed vibe with a rooftop with hammocks and picnic tables to chill at with 360 degree views of the city and surrounding volcanoes. WIFI was kinda unreliable but the rooms and toilets/showers were clean and tidy. The rooftop bar only opens on Fridays but go next-door...

If you are not looking for a party hostel, this is a place to stay. I got a recommendation from my friend and I couldn't ask for more. This hostel is spacious, quiet and clean. There is a roof-top terrace with hammocks and volcano views where I used to eat my breakfast. There is a kitchen to use. Friendly staff,...

When I stayed here, the hostel was almost dead. There were hardly anyone in the hostel. So the socializing really lacked even with the big terrace and a nice hangout place. This hostel is slightly far from the Center. I glad I get to stash my backpack in the hostel early morning of my arrival. But the lady working in...

Really enjoyed it here, one of my favorite hostels. It's a bit out of the way from the center but I didn't mind. Everything's clean, workers are really nice and helpful. There's good wifi, free water and coffee, lots of movies, and a communal kitchen. Security is good, keys to to the room, the hostel, and the gate to the...

Nice hostel with a rooftop bar that has an amazing view. The bar isn't always open, but you can bring your own drinks when it's closed and still enjoy the view. They offer free coffee, tea and purified water and Danielle is really friendly and helpful!

The private room was good. Not the most comfortable of beds, but given it is a hostel, it was to be expected. The room was clean, and the host was very nice and friendly. The shared bathroom was ok, and worked for showering and using the restroom. I loved the roof-top view and the hammocks. The location is very close...
