“The best hostel in Guatemala city for sure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I stayed at this hostel over a week when I was actually supposed to only stay a night!
The location could not be better, next to shops, parks and very safe as well. I stayed both in a dorm, a very spacious one by the way, and the other nights in a private room, which was excellent for such a small price!
I would definitely come back there, but above all, the staff made my stay memorable.
Claudia, Camille, Williams and the rest of the crew are also travelers, working there for a while and know how to make you feel at home within few minutes!
To anyone looking for a safe, well located, clean and amazing staff, that´s the place to be in Guat. city!
ps - This hostel has some traveling quotes on few walls, it was definitely a nice plus in terms of decoration!

Room Tip: Dorms are very spacious compared to the ones I used to stay in, in other hostels Private room are v...

This hostel is close to the main Street which takes you to the main square of Guatemala City. It's very easy to catch the trans metro since there is a station just next to it or if you walk a couple of blocks you get to the intersection of the three lines of the transmetro. The rooms are good, the kitchen is big, good internet connection.

Me and the other 7 girls who were traveling with me, slept there the first night in the country of Guatemala. It's very close to the airport, maybe 15 mins depending on the trafic. When you get Inside you forget that you are in Guatemala city because everything is so cozy, there are hamacs, puffs to sit on, a fruit tree, ... They put music on to play all day which is really nice. We actually plugged in my friend's iPod for a while. I felt very safe, they lock up the place very good. When we went, there was a guy from Québec city working, it was only his third week in Guate, he took us out to eat, to the market and to walk around the city. They have lockers to put your stuff in, which I was happy about. I really liked this place, it was also VERY clean, bathrooms included. I really enjoyed my stay there, if I go back to Guatemala city, I will sleep there.

A new hotel and I can see that they are putting effort into making it great. Are very helpful. We made a reservation for a dorm because that is all they had and when we got their my gf and I asked for a private. One of the workers gave up his room and moved in two beds for us. We only paid 93 or 95q each. This is probably one of the cheapest hostels that I found in Guatemala City. The only draw back was that there is only one bathroom for men and one bathroom for women for all to share. However, they said they would be doing renovations to make more bathrooms.

I was supposed to stay 3 nights in this hostel and I finally ended up staying one week. The location is great, near by shops, cheap restaurants.. The staff is lovely and helpful and the hostel facilities are good. I had a really nice stay there and I definitely recommend it if you want to meet young backpackers. Would stay there again!
