“THE Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Nice People, Raúl and Fernando helped us with everything. They booked our Tours and gave us every informations we needed. It was a pleasure to stay in Antigua on "Semana Santa". Everything is so colored and full of Life. Hostel is very close to the Center and the Bus Terminal. A really nice Place to stay!
We would come back!

I know this Hostel since 2007. And I come back here everytime when I go to Guatemala. Raul and Fernando, the two brothers, are soooooo nice and help whenever and however they can. It´s like coming home. Also my Dad (61 years old) really liked the hotel because of the lovely atmosphere. I feel really safe in A Place to Stay which is really important. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. You can use the laundry-service. If you loose yours luggage at the airport,.. you get help with towels.
Thank you Raul, Fernando and Antonia

If you are lucky enough to be travelling in Guatemala and find yourself in Antigua. There is only one place to stay - '' A place to stay''. Run by brother's Fernado and Raul. Rooms, Dorms and toilets are spotlessly cleaned by Antonia. Laundry facility, Free internet access, Chill out area, Television room. BBQ area. Kitchen and dinning area is a great place to meet other like minded travellers from all over the world. I highly recommend ''A place to Stay''.Great value for money with staff who have great knowledge of things to see and do.

I have never met such wonderful proprietors of a hostel before. The dorms and bathrooms were always clean, the staff always had smiles on their faces, and we guests were treated as people, rather than as incoming capital. I look back at my experience in Antigua with fondness because of them. If I ever return, I will be coming back to A Place To Stay without question!
