Loved this place. Excellent location, all the top sights and bars/restaurants are no more than 10 minutes walk from the hostel. Excellent views of the 3 volcanoes from the terrace. Kitchen is small but well stocked and the hostel provides coffee, tea, milk, purified water and another of herbs spices and condiments for free. Room is basic but comfortable, great value and our room even had a view of volcano agua from the bed, great sight to wake up to. There are 7-8 (I lost count!) super cute husky dogs in the reception and communal area downstairs but they are very friendly and surprisingly quiet. Also the lady behind the desk (who’s name I’ve sadly forgotten) is amazingly helpful and friendly and will tell you anything you need to know about the surrounding area and has plenty of stories beyond that too.
Nothing at all I didn’t like. Would just say that if you don’t like dogs then this hostel is not for you. They do a good job of keeping it clean and burn incense to help but there is the unmistakable ‘doggy’ smell downstairs that comes with housing that many dogs.
Good, cheap price for a hostel in Antigua... the owner was very helpful and friendly. They had a ton of really cute dogs at the time which were also pretty loud :P
Great Hostel ran by amazing people. There are a lot of dogs there if that's not your thing, but they're cool and safe. Was able to book a cheap tour to hike Acatenago here as well.
We liked the helpful advises of the host and the warm welcoming. We liked the fact the host booked an excursion for us in last minute.
We didn't like the ten dogs in the reception because we are a bit afraid of dogs.
This hostel is a great choice for budget travelers. Good location, very nice owners, well-equipped kitchen and a roof terrace with amazing views towards volcanoes. Great place to meet other travelers also. The private room was big enough and with a volcano view. Common areas and bathrooms are cleaned daily. The huskies are super-cute and friendly.
Nothing to complain about really, we liked this place a lot. Maybe it's not for people who don't like dogs or have allergies, though the dogs don't enter the rooms of course.
