    Good value, location.

    A few blocks from Arco, clean room nicely decorated with comfortable bed, nice balcony common areas, actual hot shower. One negative I wish breakfast was earlier to accommodate early morning tours and transfers.

    We really liked the view from our door of the cathedral and the mountain. You could also sit and watch volcan Fuego erupt at night. I really miss waking up to that view. I wish that on two of the days of our stay we didn't miss breakfast, but we had schedule a tour and had to leave early on our last day.

    So clean, friendly staff, great location

    We actually stayed here twice, before and after a trip to Lake Atitlan. The staff are amazing, so helpful. We booked all our shuttles with them and they had a lot of other tours offered. This place is constantly cleaned, even the bathrooms. The breakfast is huge and varied and you can eat on their roof terrace with a view of three volcanoes. The beds were comfortable and each room we stayed in had a fan and screens in the windows. The rooms on the roof seemed to be brighter and nicer compared to the first floor rooms. The bathrooms are on the first floor, but the stairs are lit at night.

    A perfect little gem

    This hostel has everything you need. The staff were the friendliest ever. Breakfast is excellent with fresh fruits, eggs, beans, pancakes, real coffee and hot chocolate. The room was small but very nicely decorated with a comfy bed and gorgeous views. They helped us with booking transfers from the airport and to Lake Atitlan. We would definitely stay here again.

    We really liked the location which was very convent to explore Antigua. The staff were very personably. The had a great tour of the Alfombra's preceded by a workshop in which we worked with them to create an alfombra of our own. It was very fun and we all were made to feel like part of the family. The staff were also super helpful with booking tours and departure plans. The kitchen / cleaning staff were excellent. Our room was immaculate after we would return each day. The breakfast in the morning was super delicious.

    yellow house is a great budget hostel in antigua, with well-decorated rooms, kind staff, a great terrace, and delicious breakfast! there was a bit of noise as we stayed in the room right across from the terrace, but it quieted down around midnight. the breakfast is fantastic, and the property was very clean! the only real unfortunate thing is that we had to cut our reservation short (travel plans forced to change) and hoped to move one of our paid nights to a slightly later date, but were unable & just lost that money. otherwise, a wonderful place.

    Fantastic. We actually arrive early and they were very hospitable and let us into a room since it was already cleaned and ready.
