The hostal is dirty. They don't offer you a towel (oh yeah), the sheets are nasty, the bathroom is gross, there's no hot water and the owner doesn't take dollars and couldn't give me receipt. Terrible

So I live here in Guatemala and I used the tourist shuttles to get back and forth around the country pretty often. I booked my shuttle for 4 p.m. shuttle and the woman at the front desk who sat on her phone looking at Facebook most of the time told me to come here 15 minutes before which is standard...

The place is dirty. The bathrooms are gross and I didn't even attempt to enter the kitchen. The staff is really nice and the price is fine. 100 for a privada but shared bathroom. The back garden is ok. I won't stay here again since I walked around and saw better options. Once the sun went down, they didn't put...

At the first sight, it seem like a nice hostel at quite affortable price. They have a little backyard that is quite good looking. After a few hours there, I could see that they do not take care of much. They barely clean the rooms between customers ( there was sand in my bed, meaning they probably didnt change the...

I stayed at El Viajero several times between January and March 2015, as I was in and out of the city. I was always greeted with a bright, beautiful smile. All of the staff are wonderful. I stayed in the dorm, and the price was definitely right! I often met cool people to go out with. The dorm room was...

The girl Who runs this hostel loves animals. And for a cheap price (I mean, compare to another hostels in Antigua) you can get a private room with shared Bathroom. There's also a small kitchen and a huge garden... All the money goes for stray animals she has rescued and now she takes care of. Beatiful idea. It's close to...

Stayed here lots of times in the last 15 years. Best value for money, has a kitchen. Note WiFi is only on first level, outside of the rooms. Great location across from the market and bus station. Has a lot of rooms, ask for a quiet one. Also great view of the volcanoes and city, and nice and safe. Really...

The rooms were average, the matresses were pretty worn out. The bathrooms and kitchen could do with a good cleaning. There are no lockers and the wifi is only good around the rooter which is close to the kitchen. The crowd staying at the hostel when I was there was mostly middle aged, so it wasnt very good for meeting...

El Viajero has a great location and offers decent rooms with private bath and comfortable beds, and a roof with a gorgeous view of the surrounding volcanoes for very little money. The staff is very friendly and will go out of their way to help you. The place is clean and everything works. I will definitely stay here again if...
