In Antigua there is the Black Cat Hostel and the Black Cat Inn/Hotel. I am talking about the second one, located 5ta calle poniente #11A.

Nice location near the center (Parque Central). Room had a nice size with 2 1,5 person beds. Shower sometimes needed some time to warm up. Bathroom was clean.
TV in the room.

Best things I found were the staff. They can really help you out and can give good advice in English if you like. If you leave early, they will make you a sandwich for you to take with you.

Also the roof terrace gives you a great view on the vulcanos. Its very large aswell. Have a look at my picture. Sorry for the clouds.. otherwise you could see the vulcano.

The hotel was silent after a certain hour, which was great for getting up early aswell.

Downsides:
Its a little expensive for Guatemalan standards. It was the second most expensive place I stayed in. So for this price it would have been nice if they supplied a towel and some soap in the room and more of these hotel type services.

Also we stayed for Q200 in this room. After 2 weeks we came back and they made us pay Q250 for the same room. We tried to argue but it did not work. Not very nice, I think.

I hope it was helpfull!

The Black Cat Inn in Antigua is a nice place to sleep (dorm: 55Q a night including breakfast). Dorms and bathrooms are clean, staff is very friendly, close to the parque central. You have a good choice between many delicious breakfasts.
Just the coffee doesn't taste good (it's rather water than coffee) and is not recommendable.
However, altogether I really enjoyed my stay there.

Its important to distinguish the hostel from the hotel (?) owned by the same people. We stayed in the HOSTEL. Simple room, great location, very cool vibe, lost of people coming and going so great to meet other travellers and socialize. Lively in the evening but the bar quietened down by 10 pm ish. Breakfast FANTASTIC and security seemed good too (we got names checked on a list by the security guard when returning around midnight one night). Probably not best place if you want peace and quiet and i got a bit annoyed with ALWAYS having to wait for the shared bathroom. It was constantly busy! But definitely recommend it for the vibe.

You sleep in a dorm with capacity for 6 for 60 Quetzales. The place is OK, clean, the staff is friendly, their breakfast is good and they have wifi. What I think this hostel lacks is a communal space where to socialize with others. They do have a terrace, on the roof, with great views. Don't be confused with the Black Cat Hostel: the owners of both are the same, but the hostels are different.

We stayed in the Black cat for over a week in September 2009 whilst we did a Spanish course in Antigua. We stayed in a double which was pretty good (the Guatemalans have mini sized beds!) We payed 150 Q a night which included a huge breakfast, you can choose from a big menu (the breakfast burrito is best) you don't really need to bother with lunch. They also have a great dinner menu too with good prices. The staff were great, so friendly and helpful. Whilst we were there I got the flu and they were really helpful with finding a doctor and pharmacist. Location wise they are right in the middle of town, all bars restaurants etc.. are walking distance. Would stay there again in a heart beat :)
