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.

This is a great place to stay, the accommodations are new and have a vibrant feel, staff is super friendly and the location is a short walk from Antiguas main sites. It's also nice knowing that the hostel is modern eco-friendly and benefits the local community!

What a great place! I couldn't recommend it more highly. This is the place to stay if you have a social conscience.
