I have stayed countless times at Posada Refugio because it's cheap and convenient. However, it's not exactly clean at all times and I have seen cockroaches on the walls. There are other places in Antigua with better accomodations for a good price (see the Burkhart).

I wouldn't recommend staying at the Refugio unless you are looking for a really cheap place. Hot water is hit and miss, bedbugs are known to plague people (although I have never had them) and the magagement is curt. If you want to stay out later than 1AM, you have to arrange with someone at the desk and usually have to pay him off with at least 300Q.

If you have a choice, go someplace else.

We paid 120Q for a triple with a private bath and supposedly a hot shower (two spigots, yes, but both equally as cold!). The hostel has a curfew at 1AM and it is nice to see that they stick to the rules, but could have done without the individual banging at the iron gates just below our room beginning at 1:10AM and continuing until 1:45AM. Rules are rules, buddy! Otherwise, a rather dank and dingy room with a view of Ronald McDonald across the way. One of the members of our party, however, was cursed with bedbugs :( The roof terrace provides some nice views and the location between the markets and Parque Central is unbeatable, but otherwise, my recommendation is to keep searching for a more comfortable stay!
