|Address: Avenida El Desengaño No. 26, Antigua, Guatemala
Poor location, good rooms
But some of the bad things about this place are: It’s located at one end of the Antigua town, so be prepared to walk a lot to reach the hotel from anywhere in the town. Although it is located on a busy street so you will always have vehicles passing by, even in the dark time of the day.
The wi-fi connection is provided all over the hostel by different routers, but some of them don’t work at night and at different times, so you may have to walk up to the front-desk area to be able to connect. Except for that one woman at the front desk, no one else speaks English.
The two most troubling things about this place, which we experienced are:
There is a chicken farm behind the hostel, so if you are staying in room 23 or any rooms in the back building, the screaming roosters will keep you up all night. Yes, all night!
Additionally, hostels usually have rules for guests making noise in the night time – but this wasn’t the case at this hostel, because the guests in room 24 (next to us) were up all night making noises. And even after complaining to the front desk, the same happened next night as well.
All in all, this is a good place to stay at – with friendly staff and clean rooms, this secured hostel can be a good value for your bucks.
