The Purpose Hostel is an awesome new place in a lovely part of Antigua! It's immaculately clean, modern and well thought out. It's complete with a few homey touches like bed curtains, personal lights and outlets, cute storage pockets hand-made by the local sewing school and HOT showers! What makes this place special is their community involvement and the unbelievably friendly staff! Take the time to chat with one of the owners over a cup of high quality coffee that's available all day. It's not an overly social hostel, but if you need a little taste of home and friendly faces at the end of the day, this is your place. Thank you Purpose!!

Even if this place would not have all the great facilities it has, it would still be 5/5 stars. I have rarely had such genuine, helpful and altogether friendly hosts—including all hotels I've stayed at over the years—as I did here in Antigua. "Where can I best do laundry?", "let me walk you to our neighbours who do!" "Is there a nice place to grab a quick snack?" "Sure! There is [...] if you want this, or [...] if you want that" "How do I get to XYZ?", "Let me take care of it for you, it will be around [...] quetzales and you'll have to pick up your tickets at [...]. Other options could be [...] or [...]" "Is there a place where I can get a massage?" "O yes! I always go to [...]! He's cheap and good but might be booked out. Let me make a few calls". Whatever my request was, they were always super helpful. Outside of all my requests, they were also just fun and friendly conversation partners. On top of that, you have (1) good beds, (2) nice hot showers, (3) everything is clean and (4) they develop the community through hiring locals who haven't worked in hospitality before and who are willing to learn English. So "purpose" does actually mean something here. Cannot recommend highly enough. Cheers!

Beautiful place with clean beds and hot showers! The staff is super duper kind and friendly, I chat with them every morning. Board games available in public areas, plenty of space to hang out. Free water and coffee ❤️

No kitchen. First hostel I've ever encountered that. Also the exchange from HostelWorld's price was a bit weird. Otherwise, super clean and quite hostel.

I don't usually provide feedback of hostels but this is totally worth writing. I only stayed here at the Purpose Hostel for a night during my few days trip at Antigua, but I fully love this hostel and would recommend it to anyone. The manager Tatiana is super helpful, resourceful and friendly, she would find ways to provide reccomendations and tips for local attractions. After I left the hostel, I came back for help with shuttle bus and printing my documents, Tatiana greeted me and helped me more than anyone else could. The hostel itself is very clean, secured and cozy; most importantly it is serving a purpose of building a community and providing working opportunities for local staffs with some disabilities.
Hot shower, calm environment, Super friendly and responsive people. Best hostel in Antigua �
Lovely place and people and they do a great work with local people. Thumbs up! And thanks for your kind advice and local information, awesome!
