Really good breakfast!
Kayla, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
This place was just okay for us, nothing special. The room was pretty tiny but had cute, minimal decor. Shared (cleaned) bathrooms located on the ground floor so makes it inconvient if you have to go in the middle of the night. Breakfast was the best part, staff was nice. We got discouraged when asking for a better rate as we were leaving at 5:30 a.m and wouldn't be having breakfast. They didn't negociate at all so we decided it wasn't worth it (too bad because we also ended up buying our transport tickets from somewhere else instead of here). Ended up finding a way better place for half the price so I guess it was a blessing in disguise for us.

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.
Ronald, us4 night family trip
Very good 8.0
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.

Friendly and Helpful Staff
Had a wonderful stay. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and can help with planning tours and transportation. It was great that they were able to help me by speaking English. The upstairs rooms are quiet and have a nice view of the mountains and town. The one I stayed in even had a television. The hostel is not a party hostel (which was great!), but there are drinks for sale and a nice cozy common area upstairs if you want to relax and chill out. The shared washrooms and hot showers were kept very clean and cleaned throughout the day. The entire hostel was actually kept very tidy and clean. The breakfast was really, really good (pancakes, fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, fruits, beans, etc.). Very happy with my stay.
