Hostelgeeks official writers, Simon and Eshé, traveled around Central America. They were looking for the best Hostels in America Latina and had a look at the Antigua hostel scene. They introduced us Cucuruchos Boutique Hostel, the brand new 5 Star Hostel in Antigua, Guatemala.
In fact, this is the very first 5 Star Hostel in Guatemala.
Cucuruchos Boutique Hostel in Guatemala is a boutique hostel with not only great location, but cool comfy digs and volcano views. Comfy what?!
Cucuruchos Boutique hostel also follows a recycling program to reduce and recycle all the waste produced in the hostel.
All drinks on sale at the hostel come in recyclable glass bottles and cans. They do also provide free filtered water in order to avoid the consumption of bottled water. A great move for the planet (and our pockets).
As Antigua has sun all year long, the Hostel was designed to take advantage of natural light.
This way, electricity consumption can also be reduced.

2. Clinically clean and great design
If you watch any kind of hospital-based drama like Greys Anatomy you’ll see surgeons thoroughly scrubbing in before they enter the OR.
The owners of Cucuruchos apply the same level of cleanliness.
The whole place is spotless and you will often be excusing yourself as you walk over a freshly mopped floor.
After a long time on the road, clothes start to suffer: dust, sweat, beer and food tainting the fabric.
A typical hostel laundry service seems to involve the clothes being momentarily dunked in cold water then hung on a line to dry.
We were astounded when our laundry was returned two hours after we handed it in. Spotless, smelling like a summer meadow and vacuum packed to ensure the neat folds were retained.
I’ll be honest; it brought a tear of happiness to my eye, as I got dressed.
The hostel has a modern design and at the same time includes many typical details of the Guatemalan culture.
It is a mix between the colonial, traditional Guatemala, and contemporary design.
