I am so glad I stumbled upon this incredible hostel. After hiking Volcan Acatenango, I was not prepared to go back to my so called "party hostel." After being shown what would be my bed equip with a curtain, private outlet, light, and massive cage for my things, it wasn't a question where I would be staying. The showers were...

I really love the breakfast and the healthy smoothies that you can get during the day. But most of all I loved the patience and help of Choco behind the reception. His shift already finished, but he still took his time to show me all the beautiful places of Guatemala. He knows the country very well and because of him...

Just brilliant. I stayed here in November. Very accommodating staff-friendly above and beyond the call of duty! The included breakfasts are delicious. If you're going to miss breakfast due to an early trip then they make up a sandwich for you to take with you. Not too party-party although plenty of fun and people to meet. The common area is...

Stayed here for a few days in April, the staff was wonderful and helped us book trips to Lake Atitlan and Mount Pacaya. We stayed in a private room, which was clean and comfortable. Food was great, and the courtyard in the middle was a great place to eat and talk to fellow travelers. We felt safe and really enjoyed...

It's the second time we are staying here in the more private quarters associated with El Hostal. Great location. Great breakfasts. Easy walk to everywhere in town including a great variety of restaurants. The management is great, friendly, wanting the experience to be easy and pleasant.

Wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. Centrally located, clean, friendly hostel with helpful staff! The breakfasts are top notch too. Bear in mind that the place is small so it gets a little noisy...if you're looking to go to bed early there might be better options in town. It's not a party hostel, but definitely has a young...

We loved El Hostal so much we came back a second time. This from someone who normally dislikes hostels. We had a private room which helped, but the dorms looked good too. Super friendly & helpful staff, good showers (hot, good pressure), clean bathrooms. Breakfast (included) is amazing. Seriously. Fun atmosphere that shuts down early for non-partiers...but Cafe No Se...

I've spent a few days in wonderful Antigua and stayed in El Hostal; defintely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. They offer everything what a weary traveller needs after a long ride with a chickenbus or shuttle: comfortable dorms with good beds to sleep in, huge lockers, more than enough power outlets and hot showers. The price...

I only stayed at El Hostal for 8 hous, but the facility is very nice with a small but welcoming courtyard. The 7-bed dorm room was nice and newish looking. There was plenty of hot water in the showers. The front desk worker, Klaybert, spoke perfect English and helped me arrange my early morning transportation. And since I was leaving...

Antigua is meant to be experienced and this hostel made my stay even more memorable. It took me awhile to find this hostel, mostly due to not being familiar with how the street signs worked. With some help from my fellow traveler, I came into the this hostel greeted by a flowing indoor fountain in their quaint sunny courtyard. The...
