Really nice and spacious rooms, clean bathrooms with hot water and a nice backyard. If you want to relax in the evening you can use the big kitchen and watch one of many available dvds in the living room. If you need help with the tours, the owner Marieke will help you nicely. She cooperates with Altiplanos tour operators, but... More

This place is a gem in Quetzaltenango, it is well-located just 1 block from Parque centrale. The owner manages the place really well and makes sure to meet every guest's needs. The rooms are spacious and the amenities are well-maintained. Would come back definetly.

I stayed at Casa Renaissance for three months in 2013 whilst I studied Spanish and went back again for the second time a couple of weeks ago. It's still fantastic! The rooms are huge and have desks and places to sit and relax. The showers have gas hot water. Amazing! The bathrooms are super clean and the kitchen is one... More

Casa Renaissance is a great place to stay! First of all, Marieke (owner) is a really nice, friendly and welcoming host. She is well-informed about the whereabouts in the area (city of Xela and around/region). The community rooms within the hostel are welcoming, with good facilities. The kitchen served us well, and the indoor little patio was a nice place... More

Because the lady that runs this place clearly puts her heart into this project and to Xela. She was lovely and most helpful with her advise. The rooms are massive but chilly because of the climate and the stone floors....bedding had seen better days so didn't make you want to snuggle into it. Our room which was by reception needs...

Good location, huge rooms, well furnished kitchen and lovely staff. The whole hostel is very lovely furnished with accessoires from Guatemala. The owner offers and organizes tours very well. 2 really cool cats are living there. They are really sweat and gentle. In the group room is a common useable laptop with Internet, a TV with DVD-player and some games.... More

One of the best hostels we found on our trip. Good location, huge spacious rooms, great kitchen, living room area with large collection of English movies. Clean. Hot showers. Only issue was a smell of sewage near the bathrooms, but I think that was a municipal problem that was being fixed. The owner was helpful but not overly friendly (maybe... More
