The best thing about this hostel was the staff. We only stayed for 2 nights but would have stayed longer if it werent for my flight.
Marcos was incredible, he was very knowledgable of Guatemalan history and the City sights, which made our experience in the city much more pleasant than we had originally thought. We met a lot of travelers throughout Guatemala telling us not to spend so much time in Guatemala City but we are happy we did. The walking tour was well worth it and learned a lot from it, not to mention the coffee stop was pretty great ( : The staff were just really cool to hang out with!
The rooms were very comfortable, had a very comfortable bed and good showers with hot water. we cooked our own food in their kitchen (the oven was hard to figure out but just as manuel to show you how to work it :P)
Also free transfers to the airport (tips is optional) when your arriving in Guatemala for the first time the airport transfer is a huge plus.
Thank you Quetzalroo for my last couple days in Guatemala and wish you all the best of luck at the new location and would love to see it in person once its up and running! ( :

Reliable, safe, secure, friendly, chill, close to the airport and Letegua bus station. They speak excellent english and really go out of the way for you. Kind of a younger crowd when I was there but it quieted down by 11 and I got the good night of sleep that I needed even in the dorm area. Free shuttles make it really a no brainer. Excellent experience all around.

The hostel itself is pretty standard but the host, Marcos is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and fun. He took a group of us out to the market and to a great coffee shop in Guatemala and drove us around. I would definitely recommend this place to others who want to get good advice on to-dos in Guat city!

Minus 1 star because my mattress was pretty squeaky and saggy :P

Very well run hostel! Don't expect just to rock up here... it isn't really signposted out the front (on purpose apparently) and you would be crazy not to take advantage of the free pick up! At least then you know you will arrive safely (Guatemala City is a pretty dodgy place...)
They had a BBQ the night we were there and it was amazing - highly recommend it (although we ended up waiting until 10pm to eat...)
Great warm, friendly atmosphere and the staff are really helpful. :)

Only stayed the one night but after a pretty rough day of travelling it was nice take refuge in such a friendly and secure hostel. I would recommend any traveller passing through Guatemala City to let the guys at Quetzalroo take care of you. It will save you a lot of stuffing around and leave you with a good impression of this crazy city!
