We stayed for a couple of days in that place. We also booked some Vulcan-tours. The Service around was always very friendly. Even by changing already booked tours was the manager very helpful, so we had a beautiful time in antigua and around.

I'm not overly picky when it comes to choosing a hostel based on price - but when you find bugs in your bed and the receptionist claims the manager won't answer his phone when asked for a refund - I am heavily unimpressed. Staff were kind, but a lack of responsibility from the manager or anyone who could make a...

Our stay here was not the worst I've ever had but that was mainly due to the big group of people I was hanging out with. The accommodation itself leaves a lot to be desired. The room was clean enough but on the first morning I was covered in what I though were mosquito bites. On closer inspection it turns...

Stayed for a night from Wednesday to Thursday. Normally normalt the busiest days of the week. Was lucky there was a big family of 20 with little kids. The staff (or who is wondering around) was ok. Dorm was terrible, mattresses worst ever and dorm is next to public area. They have a policy after 10pm should be quiet nut...

They packed our stuff and took our luggage outside of the room because they weren't sure we're staying for another night. Treated us with zero sensitivity and care. Negative vibes and unwelcoming behave. It was night and we were stuck with no accommodation. Not recommended at all!

Reasonably priced and good location. But there were lice or bed bugs, i was covered in bites! It was a dirty room. I showed staff them crawling around my bed the next day as no one available that night. They cleaned my clothes and case which was great, but when leaving they charged me for that night even though i...

My son and I stayed at the Banana Azul for two nights May 4-5 and May 5-6, 2015. We were passing through Antigua at the end of our trip to Guatemala. Posted quiet hours are 10 p.m. to 9 a.m., which turned out to be a joke. Both nights were terrible; on the first night, the night manager and his...

The employees seem more interested in partying with other guests than providing good services. That's fine, but they play their music way too loud and no one seems to enforce quiet hours. I had to get up at 3:30 am to ask other guests to turn off their music. Unacceptable. Would not recommend unless you want to be disturbed at...
