We went on an OX trek in January and stayed one night at the hostel. When we arrived they made us pay for the hostel even though I’d paid online. I have requested a refund for this ever since, emailing them more than once a week (it’s now been over two months) and even though

This place does not live up to its description on the website.... I stayed in a 4 bed dorm that was messy with a full time resident’s belongings all over the room. After they’d cleared the stuff off my bed the place still seemed dirty and I’m not convinced I had fresh sheets.

The showers were really bad, muldy and no hot water. NO Kitchen. The volcano tours are good but 4 times the price than the others! Overall the place was quite dirty. Staff is not helpful. The view from the rooftop was nice.

It shouldn't be a problem. I would just email them. They were very helpful when I booked. My party and I went a couple of months ago and we landed in Guatemala City at about 11:30pm. I would recommend getting a shuttle transfer. Very easy and pretty cheap. Hope this helps. :)
