This is a hostel with beautiful rooftop terrace. The terrace has amazing views of the local landmarks and a great view of three of the famous volcanos Fuego, Acatenango and Agua.
Antigua is a small 10x10 block town bursting with color and life. During the day you can enjoy all the wonders of a town stuck in time. From typically dressed women and children by day to a large, exciting night life, Antigua is a town of magic sure to capture your heart. We are located at the north end of town next to La Merced Church where you can find delicious street food. We are just 5 blocks from the entrance to Cerro de la Cruz where you can walk to get a beautiful view of the town. Also only short stroll to the local markets and supermarkets where you can pick up your fruit and veg or souvenirs and only 4 blocks from the Central park where you can relax by the fountain and experience the Antigua culture at its best.
The hostal is fully equipped with all your necessities to live comfortably in your home away from home. We have WiFi, free drinking water, lockers, 24 hour access and security. The rooms are dormitory style with bunk beds for 6 – 8 people in each of 3 rooms. In each room there is a bathroom with warm showers. As optional extras we offer a full bar and restaurant, Spanish lessons, guest fridge, tours and shuttle services. While the staff all speak English, there is still a lot of Spanish around, perfect if you're trying to learn Spanish.
In comparison to other hostels, we are very small, only offering 25 beds. We are however big in heart and energy, mostly on the terrace. We have lots of tourists and locals enjoying the terrace bar and restaurant. We consider ourselves a large family and like volunteers and guests to enjoy the warmness we share too.
