I was very happy with my experiences in November 2015 for 4 nights at Yellow House. Breakfast was delicious, the common areas and bathrooms were very clean and the staff was very nice. I stayed in the single room and it was a nice break but from the dormitory I usually stay in at hostels. I should note I did...

We stayed four nights in Yellow House in November and really enjoyed the stay. Nice and clean rooms and shared bathrooms and the best breakfast in town. Nice common area with hammocks on the roof. Staff was very friendly and helpfull in arranging tours and shuttles. I would stay here again.

Really lovely place to stay, the ladies at reception were so nice and welcoming. Very central location. I had a small single room upstairs and had an amazing view off the balcony from the front door. I was there during revolution day and was able to to see fireworks and everything from the balcony. Free breakfast every morning but I...

Unluckily we had constant rain for the days we arrived in Antigua. The rain leaked under the door and through the windows after the non stop rain. The not so private terrace was just an extension of the communal area and we were the furthest away from the bathrooms. If it wasn't raining the room would of be lovely with...

Great place, super friendly and great value for money, breakfast is awesome and worth staying just for that, the staff are very helpful. Do have a look around at paragliding helicopter tours etc, they will, as always only promote the tours they do. We sat in the roof drinking cold beers and watching mount Fugeo erupt in the distance, lava...

Stayed here in October 2015 in a private room. We used Antigua as a base while travelling to and from Lanquin and Lake Atitlan and we loved coming home to Yellow House! It was so comfortable and the staff are incredible and very helpful - they organised all our tours and shuttles in minutes! The free breakfast is the best...

Every time I travel through Antigua, I stay at Yellow House, unless they are full because they are so awesome! It is the cleanest hostel I have ever seen in Guatemala. The breakfast is delicious and the staff is extremely kind and accommodating!

such a gorgeous little hostel in Antigua. The staff are so incredibly friendly, i felt so so welcomed and at home. The breakfast is great and fresh and you can eat it above on their gorgeous terrace over looking the surrounding volcanos. The dorm was great, no bunk beds which was a nice change! Showers were piping hot always! The...
