One of the best hostels we have ever stayed in. Location was about 5 blocks from the "Parque Central". The price, $10 p/p included taxes and breakfast, and the staff was excellent. It has a very pleasant inner courtyard with hammocks, tables/chairs, sofas, bar, front desk. The girls that make breakfast are very nice and the choices are all good....

Very clean, big rooms. Staff are excellent and so helpful. Location is great. Free breakfast is very good - lots of options. Decent showers/toilets. Good book exchange and lots of games. Bars across the road can be loud if you have an early start.

I stayed at El Hostal on two occasions. Unfortunately, during the second stay I became seriously ill and was admitted to hospital which resulted in needing to return back home for further tests. The staff at El Hostal were unbelievable. I honestly do not know what I would have done without their help and support both physically and emotionally. Not...

I only stayed here one night, but thought the place was nice. On the downside, its central location made it loud at night. I slept with earplugs and still had some trouble. Thought it was a little pricey for what you get, but the price includes a solid breakfast. There was a lot of information around tours and transportation if...

I remember first walking into to El Hostel after visiting several hostels in Antigua. And, I remember feeling relief, b/c I could tell in moments that I found a beautiful and refreshing, open air spot to spend some time. The staff and owners were incredible and truly go out of their way to help you out. They were my second...

Seriously, wonderful stay! Slept well, great value and the staff! Chaco, certainly enhanced our trip with his lively spirit and a wealth of knowledge! He showed us all the best places in town and everything was perfect! He has certainly set the bar high! The hostel is beautiful, clean, not to loud and not boring... Recommended to all!

Stopped in here. Wasn't even a guest. Needed to arrange a shuttle. Staff was very helpful. Let me use the restroom and the wifi. They called and arranged a shuttle for me too. Great people--so helpful. The facilities are clean and bright. I was very impressed. Will be staying there when I go back!
