Hostal La Antigua
Reviewed 20 July 2017

Very friendly and cordial staff, but the rooms need better insulation and better ventilation; water was dripping from the ceiling for most of the night. Also, it was frustrating to be told in the evening that the hostel has "hot water 24 hours" only to learn at 7AM the next morning that "the hot water pipe freezes when it's cold outside, but there should be hot water around noon."

Stayed here for one night. The rooms have been clean, mattresses good and shower super warm. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast is included. Just the wifi broke down which was a little bit annoying.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, they helped me with a tour to hornocal on the same day I arrived which was great. Beautiful decor all around. The bathrooms were very spacious and the shower was very hot with a good water flow. They didn't charge me for towel like in many other hostels. There was heater in the room which was nice. I stayed in a 4 beds dorm and I found it to be quite small for 4 people, but it was low season and I was alone in the room, so it wasn't a big deal, but it could be uncomfortable if all four people were in. Also there were no lockers in the room. Wi-fi is very slow, but then this seems to be a problem in the area and not just the hostel. Breakfast was simple as any other hostel, but with a very nice homemade bread. Very close to the bus station which is handy.

I'm just going to be echoing the great reviews of this place but it definitely is a lovely hostel. The volunteers who were working here by the time we visited were really helpful and friendly. The kitchen is good (just the stove is a bit small), the garden is nice and the beds are comfortable. It all looks clean and pretty. Plus Humahuaca is a good place to visit different sites around.

Loved this little hostel which I was recommended. The shared rooms are large and there is a lovely patio/suntrap right in the centre of the property. Staff were kind and helpful and breakfast was great too - homemade breads a la carte! It is located just outside of town so one can escape the bustle of the town..
