Located 5 blocks from the center, greatly located in a nice and quite spot, close to all activities in the city. The crowd in the hostel is mostly German-speaking well-mannered people. Not a single loud word after 9-30 pm. We stayed in a private room, enjoyed it a lot. Very close to the hostel is a restaurant Por Que No,...

If you're looking for an quiet little place but not for from the center park, this could be what you are looking for. We stayed in the private bedroom. Beds were ok, shared bathroom was cleaned everyday. You can chill on the roof and there's even a little kitchen.

We stayed at this hostel a few different times on our guatemala trip and had very different feelings about it each time. The hostel itself is quite good, it has nice beds, a kitchen, and a really nice rooftop patio with picnic tables and hammocks. There were 2 different ladies that worked the front desk..one was very friendly and helpful...

These other reviews must be fake. This place was filthy I mean filthy. Hot water knob missing from bathroom faucet. Dirty, noisy, just plain gross. Someone smoking outside our room. 'Night Guard' snored so loudly that it woke us up at 4am. Beds were nasty- evidence of bed bugs. Bathroom dirty, we spent as little time in there as possible....

Overall this is a pleasant place to stay - it has a beautiful roof terrace and fantastic staff. Also has great WIFI. However the beds were a nightmare (we stayed twice). This place could be excellent if it just had good mattresses - arguably the least any hostel should have is a bed where sleep is possibe. It's falling into...

Dorm rooms are comfortable but a little tight for room an some of the lockers need replacing. The kitchen was well equipped, TV room was a nice touch, WiFi was reliable and the showers were pretty good. Everything was clean enough but it might be time for a deep clean soon. Location in the city was okay, supermarket and main...

Firstly: Couldn't ask for nicer people to run this place. Both my boyfriend and I got quite sick when we were here (we think from Semuc Champey). They were so helpful. Moved us to a private room for no additional cost even though they lost the business for the dorm beds we were in. Called doctors for us as our...

Very basic hostel. Rooms are comfortable and cool enough. Has a kitchen and small lounge where you can watch tv. Toilets and showers were alright, although there was trouble with one of the showers because you couldn't lower the temperature. Staff were friendly and nice as well. Laundry shop next door too!

Very peaceful, relaxing stay. Very clean and hot showers woo hoo! About a 10 minute walk into the main square. Also extremely well priced. Love the staff, the girls do an awesome job and they are super friendly!

My friend and I are wrapping up two weeks staying at Villa Esthela. This is our first experience with hostels, and it's a fantastic first experience. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the room is lovely, the price is right, and the location is great (not too close to downtown Antigua). Would recommend for sure. The only things that prevent...
