Great shared apartment for the travelers or volunteers on a budget. Wonderful for people who want to meet interesting individuals from all over the planet, but don't want to stay at a 30 person hostel! Apartment is only about five blocks from Central Park.. which is about a ten minute walk. (Apt is located next to Hotel Casa Santa Domingo)
Utilities, trash service and wifi are all included. Cleaning service is provided three times a week (Mon, Wed and Fri). Rooms are furnished with full bed, desk and chair, mirror, and dresser/hanging rack for clothes.
Kitchen has full-size stove and full sized Fridge! (rare in Guate) Kitchen is also equipped with an Eco Filter for drinking water. Apt also has a projector and dvd player, with plenty of movies to chose from. Both showers are nice and warm!
Neighborhood is safe and quite with a selection of tiendas, cafes and restaurants to choose from. Please be sure to read the reviews! All are welcome!
(There is a review that the refrigerator is not working. It has since been fixed)
Eric's place was great! We would stay there again in a heartbeat. It was very secure, and yet still a social and friendly atmosphere. Eric and everyone staying there were awesome. It doesn't feel like a crowded hostel, and it was never too loud at night. A great place for a short or long term stay. We needed help finding a driver to take us to Guatemala City for the month and the guys living there were a huge help in finding us someone. Thanks Eric!
Eric's "apartment complex" is located only a few blocks east of the center square, in reasonably safe area just off a well-used street. The rooms, which were simple and small yet clean, are managed by Ben, an amiable and helpful American,
Had a great time in Antigua in Eric's apartments. The price is fantastic for what you are provided and my housemates were great and welcoming. The location is good, and everything in Antigua is within walking distance. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn't want the craziness of a big hostel and a private room for a cheap price. In fact, I've already sent a friend his way! Thanks Eric!
Cool place to stay if you are on a budget!
Clean and with nice people!
This is a cool place to stay, I had a room on the second floor with a double bed and good views over the roofs and mountains of Antigua. The place is just a few blocks from Parque Central. Eric and all roommates from different countries are very friendly and tell you everything you need to know to move around the city.
we had a great time staying in Antigua and Eric's place was perfect for us. The house is well set up and has everything you need. the people that are staying there were really nice and made our stay very enjoyable. The price is un-beatable! Thanks again Eric. see you soon
friendly host, and roomates in a cosy guatemalan house. its a good deal in town !
antigua is nice small and walkable with a lot of great food, and great partys.
and good spanish schools !!!
only bad point would be the no longer really working fridge. But eric keeps improving the house !
Antigua is a surprisingly expensive place. If you are on a tight budget, then I recommend you check out this place. You can enjoy the privacy of your own room and/or enjoy the company of your fellow housemates. The location is great - a leisurely 15 minute walk straight west on 4th Street brings you to the central park. Check out Earthbourne on 4th street (Antigua's answer to Whole Foods/Trader Joes) and the myriad of restaurants along the way to the park. This place can get messy with so many people living here. It's a good thing cleaners come in three times per week. BTW - the Ecofiltered potable water is great.
You can stay in a hostel here in Antigua and get ripped off for purchasing a private room or you can stay here for a third of the price for a private room and meet cool people that will be around a lot longer. Quiet location and close walking distance to some great bars and restaurants.
The place was very welcoming and everyone was friendly. Eric was a good host and let me know what was happening in the city. Would recommend to others
