If you're not into walking stay closer to city center. It is at least 7 blocks from the main square. No matter what you do, you'll have to walk walk walk. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms on first floor are very dark and cold; better on 2nd floor but still dark. Cont'l Breakfast included: coffee or tea, one white... More

I have stayed at many different budget and mid-range places in Xela over the years. This is one the best, appealing to many budgets and even has parking. The beds and linens are good quality, even in the dorms. You pay a little more than some places, but you get something for it. It's at the limit of easy walking... More

There is a breakfast room with a fridge where you can store your food (a big supermarket is only 3 blocks away) and where ou can make tea and coffee (free). There is also a... More

The hostel offers a great value for money. The staff is friendly and rooms are cozy. It also has a private parking next door. The location is around 6 blocks from parque centroamerica on 2a calle. The area is pretty dark and isolated at night. There are small mom and pop shops around the hostel and a nice xela pan... More

I stayed twice in this small hotel and I liked the big, comfortable rooms. They are clean and have the basics a guest may need. Staff is helpful and friendly. It is quiet, comfortable, clean and nicely decorated.

We stayed at 7 Orejas a total of 5 nights. The management does not speak English but did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. I wished I could have thanked them properly for their help with our departure shuttle which didn't show up when expected. With our few words of Spanish and some pictures on brochures they were able... More

This is a hostel located far from the park, and farther from the terminal, the quality of sleep is perfect which is good for light sleepers. The rooms are clean and warm, they don't have hot water from the sink but that's standard in Guate. The stay only includes the poorest "continental" (pan francés & coffee) breakfast and we didn't...

I wouldnt recommend this for a single female as 2 Calle is quiet and darkish after dark at the end where the hostal is. Overall quite good experience in a city... More
