The cleanest, cheapest, and friendliest budget hostel in Antigua, Jungle Party is the place for backpackers and bargain hunters who enjoy its little touches like nightly happy hours and Saturday-evening barbecues. The simple, shared rooms with bunk beds are spotless, and the showers have plenty of hot water. The pleasant courtyard restaurant has funky orange and yellow mushroom-shaped chairs and swinging hammocks for lounging. Salvadoran owner Mónica is happy to help with travel arrangements. They also serve some of the best smoothies Antigua has to offer.
