“Huge room, safe, good value for money and lovely breakfast”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

My partner and I stayed here for 1 night in March and after being really apprehensive about Guatemala (due to the horror reports in our Guide) we had a pleasant surprise in finding Coperacha and being put at ease by the Management.

The manager rapidly responded to our interest in a room, arranging a reasonable priced taxi to pick us up directly from the airport. When we arrived we fell in love with the colonial style building which has a courtyard with swing chairs and plants, a real inner sanctum of peace and tranquility.

Our room was huge, very clean with large clean bed and ensuite bathroom. There was a problem with the hot water in our room, so we used the shared shower facilities which were a short walk from our room and had lovely hot running water.

In the morning the Manager cooked us a lovely breakfast of plantain, eggs, beans and tortilla with cups of tea (with milk) and coffee. We had a great chat about life and politics before being armed with a map and taking a short walk up to the ATM.

Sadly we would have stayed longer but due to time restraints moved onto San Marcos, the manager arranged a fair priced taxi which took us directly to the bus station.

Massive thumbs up to this place, just what you need to ease you into Guatemala City.

The space of this hostel was pretty nice and relatively affordable. They advertised that they'd "pick me up from the airport"...which translates to they'll send a cab. Still, it was nice to not have to figure out how to get here. The hostel is a bit removed from most of the city and the streets are very dark around it, so I did not feel remarkably safe wandering at night. The room was clean and the outdoors area was pretty nice.

stayed here at the beginning of my 3 month tour of central America and the host (sorry forgotten his name) was fantastic could not be more helpful and informed on the city!

the rooms were clean tidy and well set up and even had hot water! place is a little quiet sometimes but hopefully that will change as word gets out of just how good this place is!

great location too basically just straight up the top the of the main street and two too the left.

guatemala city was safe enough so dont avoid it over safety concerns.. there is enough to do for a few days in town and a gym close by too.

La Coperacha is the best choice for travellers who pass through the capital.
It is located in a nice area, the rooms are friendly and clean, there is a full-equipped kitchen, internet and everything you need is close by.
The best thing about La Coperacha though are the owners and employees. There will not only pick you up from the airport but also tell you everything about the city, especially zona 2. This way you can see the city with different eyes and will discover that there is much more than a lot of traffic. If you are interested they can introduce you to the culture- and nightlife! And if not you can hang out in the patio or the living room.
I recommend the hostel as much to backpackers as to families and business trips.
Staying at La Coperacha might make you want to spend more time in Guate then planned!

I must say that I really didn't expect much knowing that I was moving into a hostel. This was also my first stay at a hostel, had to spend a couple of days in the city and a hotel would have been way too expensive. First off, the location is great. Quiet, clean street without much traffic, 15 minute walk to the main square and old city center. 3 Minutes away from a huge supermarket, small shops less than a minute away. Very clean, staff is very nice and helps wherever they can. Very quiet in the night, kittchen is clean and fully equipped. Big, modern fridge to hold all your beer. Staff speaks English, Spanish and French and there even is a computer you can use to check your emails.

Room Tip: I have seen all rooms and they are all very nice
