This is a cheap hostel - very basic, rooms are bare with only limited lockable storage areas. The bathrooms are not the cleanest - during my 3 day stay, the bathroom was cleaned once and we had to ask for the bins to be emptied as they were overflowing… The staff are friendly and the manager in particular is really...

I knew this place is right underneath the Sky Bar, and I knew it would be a bit noisy, but I wasn't prepared for HOW noisy. According to the hostel, "quiet time" is from 10pm, when the doors are closed to keep out the noise from the restaurant. So I was hopeful to at least get a few hours of...

Awesome staff, awesome rooms, best price around! Breakfast in the morning is great and you can use the kitchen as long as you clean up after yourself so you can save some money on dinner! The back courtyard is beautiful and the staff is all A+ people! They let us keep our bags all day as we went out and...

The Hostal is located in an interesting part of town. Near many other restaurants and bars. After 10 pm parking your vehicle on the street seems to be ok. According to the staff at the front desk. They mention to us that is was safe. The Hostal does not have parking space. The front desk staff is nice. He did...

The guy at reception is friendly and helpful but I didn't have a good time here as I only got three hours sleep. The problem is the floor plan, some of the rooms open on to the main communal area, and have mosquito nets covering the windows instead of glass. These rooms are also opposite the main toilets for the...

Great place, right next to several cool bars, an excellent breakfast spot, and some delicious cheap dinner restaurants as well. Safe and secure parking inside the hostel for motorcycles, and the staff was out of this world. Went out of their way to make sure we had an awesome experience. Fairly priced, breakfast included. If you're in Antigua, whether its...

Don't go there! If you are on a budget and would take dorm room, then maybe... But I would suggest to look around for other options first. We booked this place online and regret it as we stepped in. The place is just neglected... We booked a twin room and got a double instead and they didn't have any other...

I recently spent 6 nights at Hacia El Sur, which is located in my favorite part of Antigua. This street (block, actually) is home to a few quality restaurants and bars, including the amazing Café No Se. During my stay, the hostel was low-key, which is fine by me. All the standard bits are covered: clean rooms, friendly staff, hot...

We have a selection of 8 different breakfasts to enjoy everyday from 7:00 to 10:30. Of course we serve Guatemalan coffee too! Come to Cafe Divino, our breakfast, lunch and dinner bar with a menu of smoothies to burgers and beer and cocktails too.Conveniently at the front of our building is a tour company, bike rental and bike tour service as well as a shuttle booking service that picks you up right at the door.

“Traveling with three? Best prices for a room! Sometimes they will give you a four bed room for the same price! All room are excellent! Some have private bathrooms but the shared one is nice too and is cleaned multiple times throughout the day!”

“Do not get a room near the bathrooms or the showers. Do not get a room near the wall that meets the next house. The noise is very high. Very loud.”

“Room #4 is a dorm room with 3 or 4 beds and an ensuite bathroom. Preferable, in my opinion, if you don't want to pay for a private room.”
