I was traveling by myself so I didn't know anyone but the staff guys made me feel like home, breakfast was really delicious, acceptable prices. The place looks nice, the location is algo really good. They can improve some things like cleaning or give maintenance to the rooms.

When I arrived in Guatemala, this was the first place I stayed in. I have stayed in a dormitory. Had a fine bad, and the room was big and clean. Also, the breakfasts were amazing. Very delicious and very big! All in all, I highly recommend this place.

Good location, but a disappointment once you get inside. Staff are not very attentive. Rooms are not very clean. Walls are thin, so expect noise from neighbors. I will be looking at other options next time I am in Antigua.

I thought the hotel was just mediocre to begin with (average rooms, not the comfiest beds, unreachable staff), but then my friend got bed bugs.... rather than give him a free nights stay and pay for all his clothes to be laundered, they gave him free laundry and a 20% discount on his stay. I thought that was pretty ridiculous.

The location was nice, the staff were helpful and the free breakfast in the morning was great... BUT my cousin and I stayed in a private room with a double bed and we were attacked by BED BUGS during the night. Nothing like bed bugs to ruin the rest of your trip. Itchy bites, how incredibly hard it is to... More

Filthy hostel. The shower and bathrooms were disgusting not to mention the rooms. We had a private room and it was like a dungeon, the matters was about 5cm thick and my partner got riddled with bed bugs. Not one or two but about 50-60. Would never stay here again due to the dirtiness. Good breakfast though.

Has its charm with a nice courtyard with columns. Centrally located near the city square. There is a restaurant and a rooftop bar. It is nice and quiet, provided there are no noisy guests. The day and evening front desk personnel is very friendly, well spoken, educated, and helpful and ready to assist any way possible. English is spoken. There... More

Stayed at the black cat inn in Antigua with a friend of mine. It was very authentic, comfortable and clean. Short walking distance to the center of the city and food is decent. They have some tasty vegetarian options as well. They organize shuttles for you to other cities at a decent price if you don't want to take the... More

We had arrived at the Black Cat Inn way late at about 12:20 am. It was the end of a very tiring and frustrating travel day and we were BEAT. The older gentleman met us at the door and showed us to the dorm room and told us we could choose our bed. We had a quick look and decided... More
