At a hundred Qs for a private room with en suite, this is the best value I found in Guate (when taking into account the location as well). Contrary to a previous review, the location is safe (the previous reviewer must have the nerves of a miniature Chihuahua) on a wide, well lit side street, very close to the big... More

You can see it used to be a nice place, but now it's in a very bad shape and it's really filthy, with cockroaches entering into your bags. The only good thing is the localization. This place was our worst experience ever.

I found Hostal Plaza on TripAdvisor, and the Moon guide also recommended it, so I shot off an e-mail to make a reservation. Killer prices and close proximity to La Aurora Airport make a great combo. However, there were small bumps at the beginning of our visit. First, the taxi driver took us to Hotel Plaza which seriously looked like... More

It is a very nice place, cheap, clean, and well located in a quite safe area. The rooms are big, with cable TV, and clean bathroom. The buses going downtown are one block from the hostel. Margarita, a very friendly houskeeper, is always ready to help you, as well as José, the gardener, (who was my personal tourist guide). I... More

I recently stayed at Hostel Plaza in Guatemala City and loved it. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and there was a beautiful courtyard to enjoy the sun in and relax. The cost of the rooms are also very good value. Furthermore, the owners were very kind and helpful people, whose hospitality was AMAZING. Not only did they help... More

This little unmarked hostel is very near the airport and close to popular fast food outlets such as Kentucky Fried Chicken and Pizza Hut. It is located at 6a Avenue "A", 13-52 Zona 9. The number is 502 5417 2143. Plain, clean and handy. There's even a piano to play! It was easy to make an early morning flight from... More

I stayed one night just before flying out of the airport in the morning (closeby and only Q.25 by taxi to get there--the minimum fee at this time). The room was nice with private bath/shower and good tv service. They arranged a taxi for me at 4am and were up at that hour to make sure I was up and... More

My partner and I stayed at Hostal Plaza in October 2009 at the end of a week trip in Guatemala and it was far and away our favorite place. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming and the location could not be beat - one of us had to catch an early morning flight and the other an early bus... More

I only spent one night at Hostal Plaza, my first night when arriving to Guatemala. I got there late and a cab took me to the place. Ana, the owner, was waiting for me at the gate (I had made a reservation - and so should you) and took great care of me. She even arranged transportation to Lago Atitlan... More

When travelling in a foreign country far from home, nothing can be more comforting than receiving extra personal attention from the host of where you are temporarily residing. And that was my experience with Hostal Plaza. This humble inn, located in zone 9 only a few blocks from Guatemala City’s entertainment district “La Zona Viva,” offers guest a warm and... More
