hexvenus has indicated that this thread is about Guatemala

My brother is apparently staying at a place called The Black Cat in Antigua but i cannot, for the life of me, find ANYTHING about this place at all.

Can anyone help me?? I'm looking for a phone number so i can call him.

Thanks in advance

Gato Negro in Spanish, no such hotel or hostel exists by that name in Antigua as far as I know..usually "Gato Negro" would be the name of a bar or brothel, not a lodging place. Join http://www.revuemag.com Guatemala Revue Magazine site based in Antigua and ask people on the forums.

I found this while searching for the Black Cat Hotel/Hostel in Antigua. You can contact the author through the site and maybe gain more information about the location of the hostel. It is about the only thing listing lodgings by that name.

"I had a delicous dinner (the black cat hostel rocks) and then we went to about 6 local establishments."

Good luck!
