When I pay 40 dollars for a private room there are a few things that I do not expect... 1. For the owner to be annoyed that I would not take his bike tour even though I explained I had a sprained ankle... seriously! 2. For the owner to make fun of me for taking an early night, even though... More

Stayed here on my first night in Guatemala as well as my last. Great people run this hostel and they are very friendly and make you feel extremely welcome. Traveling internationally can be overwhelming at times, and my flight was delayed and arrived late. Quetzalroo was ready to receive me and didn't need payment immediately (I had few Quetzales and...

We got there at about 8, when we just caught Marcos leaving with some backpackers for dinner. He asked if we wanted to come as well, ran with my luggage up to the reception so we could leave right away. I checked in when we got back,they were totally uncomplicated! They place he took us for dinner had amazing and... More

This is the second time I have stayed in this hostel. Both were because I was flying out the next day. The hostel is located several city blocks from a mall and supermarket which I walked to, with a small amount of difficulty as these main streets are not set up for crossing easily. The reception area for the hostel... More

No seriously, this place was truly amazing! The staff was absolutely above and beyond amazing! Truly nice, they are all your friends before you even get there. They have a sweet location in a really nice part of town. While you are here, dine at San Martin restaurant AND Patsy's, you can walk to both, and you'll be glad you... More

I have to say, when I stayed the hostel did not reflect the atmosphere described in many of the previous reviews. Given it kind of depends on the crowd, but every day I was there including the weekend, it was very quiet with not as much socialization as I've seen in most other hostels. Beds and bathrooms are good, wifi... More

This Hostel is great if you want to see Guatemala City in a safe, fun social way, or just to chill out the night before your flight. Marcus who helps run the place offers a bicycle tour of the city which was a great way to see the sights in a safe way. We went all over the city with... More

Quetzalroo is a really nice place with very nice owners who are proud to be Guatemalan, want people to see their city, and go out of their way to make sure that you're safe while you're there. I definitely recommend it for if you're in Guatemala City!

Hostel was clean and comfortable with free WiFi which didn't work in our room but was fine in the communal area. Price for a private double room was about 280 quetzales (I can't remember exactly) which is a touch on the expensive side compared to the rest of Guatemala but I believe the capital is generally a bit more expensive....

I like the friendship of the hostel owner. Very nice atmosphere. Offers free breakfast and parking I feel a bit over priced for the dorms and the private room. I wish the private room comes with a private bathroom too. But it's not. And they only accept cash. No credit card. I like the city bike tour. It cost Q50... More
