This hostel is not only close to the airport and in one of the safest neighborhoods in Guatemala City, but it's very clean and hospitable. The biggest draw though, is Jorge. He owns the hotel, and will come to wherever you are to pick you up and bring you to the hotel.
When my friend and I arrived, he gave us a tour of the immediate area (his english is very good as well), and then set us up in our room. Later, he took us out for drinks and shared his story with us. When we left, he gave us his number and told us to call him if we ever needed help.
Lo and behold, no matter where we were in Guatemala, if we had a question, he had a great answer for us. If we were lost, he'd even look up where we needed to go and who we needed to talk to.
We returned a little later as a stop between Monterrico and Xela. The Linea Dorada (bus line) website said they had an afternoon trip scheduled, so we decided to go in the afternoon. Jorge drove us to the station, and when it turned out they didn't have a bus leaving that day, he let us stay another night FOR FREE.
The hostel, everyone in it, and everything about it is marvelous. Highly recommended.
