My room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The double doors opened up to a courtyard. The shower stalls, of which there are three, were right next door. Lucien, the host, couldn't have been more accomodating. He and his wife prepare the morning breakfast--coffee or tea, an egg or two, beans, and bread--all included in the room fee. Fluent in French and Spanish, and to a lesser degree, English, Lucien is very knowledgeable about the city and the sites to visit. Need a taxi to the airport? No problem; Lucien is right there to help out. If you are concerned about safety, you need not worry. The location is definitely safe with a police sub-station located on the same block. As for super cheap transportation, take the buses painted green for one quezal at a stop 3 bocks away next to the pocket park.…
This is one of the best hostel we have seen in Guatemala. The staff was friendly and the place felt safe. Good breakfast every morning and the rooms were comfortable and clean. This will definitly be my choice if I ever go back to Guatemala City.
Nice old building restored to be a hostel. Walking distance to a shopping street, and best of all, the staff recommended eating at the Mayan Restaurant Señora Pu. A great package. The room with the bathroom was very nice. Well worth being farther away from the airport.
I love a good hostel, but this hostel exceeded my expectations! I was only in Guatemala City for a few days, but the owner went out of his way to call and schedule shuttles for me to go to activities (he offered his assistance here), he was kind to help me find a place to exchange my money, and even as I was LEAVING the hostel, he walked me to where I needed to go afterwards to make sure I arrived safely! The staff was friendly (not to mention the delicious breakfasts provided in the morning), it was a safe and quiet environment, and I felt completely cared for. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hostel!
We had an excellent experience at La Coperacha. The room was comfortable, clean, safe and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Guatemala City.
