Located in a great location in the middle of town, the Tropicana has an onsite bar and restaurant, and a small but nice swimming pool. In addition to that, they have a great rooftop terrace with views of the city and surrounding volcanoes. One of their unique specialties is that they offer a multi-day trek to the nearby mountains and volcanoes, which helps add to the social atmosphere as this is a great opportunity to make friends and then enjoy their company upon returning to the hostel for a few nights.

Bunk bed dorms and private rooms are available, and reviewers state that the facilities are clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful, and the food provided by the restaurant is good. They also have a TV room with movies and games.

In the middle of town, the not-so-creatively-named Hostal Antigua has a cool vibe, plenty of clean dorm beds and private rooms, and a comfortable common room area for socializing. They also offer access to their sister property's pool and amenities for a small fee, which is a nice bonus for those that want to live it up for a few days while staying on budget. Their list of amenities is typical of most hostels: Wi-Fi, laundry, lockers, clean bathrooms, an outdoor terrace, tour booking and transportation options, a communal kitchen, and the list goes on.

But above and beyond the amenities and the basic name is the great atmosphere created by the staff and the other guests looking to have a great time. A favorite among reviewers!

The Casa Jacaranda offers dorms as well as private rooms with shared bathrooms. Free Salsa lessons several times each week at the onsite bar and restaurant help get the fun started. And the free breakfast (reviews claim it's terrific) brings everyone together in the morning to plan the day's adventures. Unwinding at the bar and common areas (TV room, back patio with hammocks) in the evenings make for a fun and social environment at this clean and friendly place.

With a long list of amenities such as Wi-Fi, laundry, and more, guests won't be lacking any luxuries. On top of that, the staff is very helpful when it comes to arranging transportation or tours and excursions.

It's also located right in the middle of town, close to shops and restaurants.
