The owner is quirky but awesome. Our bus arrived early into Guatemala city and he let us in at 5:30 in the morning. We were served breakfast with the best eggs we’ve ever eaten and we were in our room by 7 am. Our room was spacious, quiet, and clean with a much needed mosquito net. The bathrooms were clean and had hot water.

Good hostel. Very nice atmosphere, friendly staff! Lucien, the manager makes you feel very welcome. Good breakfast! Patio to stay relaxed on the hammacks. Location near the historic center and the local market. Recommended!

The good - Very charming interior. Very good sized rooms. Clean. Decent showers although the toilets need to be refurbished - particularly the seats.
The bad - Difficult to find due to the way Guate does it's addresses and the fact that there is no sign on he building. Location is not great in the north of the city with little (safe) public transport around. Also, a guest told me he was mugged the previous day in the nearby plaza. No en suite bathrooms. The middle-aged manager woke me up in the morning to say that my room was reserved for that day even though I'd said to someone else the previous day that I would be staying for 2 nights. (The manager of Quetzalroo told me this guy has a drink problem and there are often complaints about the way he runs things - I didn't get the chance to experience any other problems as I checked out straight away)
The privates are 10 US dollars a night which is good for the city but I guess is reflected in the location - and service from the manager

Que buen lugar... No es posible que hay un lugar mejor que este en Guate. El precio es especular por los servicios que hay... Y la casa tiene un ambiente de paz y amor. Cada día despiertas de un desayuno y una sonrisa. Y los desayunos son sanos y deliciosos-de huevos, frijoles y plátanos. Las camas son cómodos y limpios. Y los baños compartidos son los mejores que yo conocí en todo Central America. La zona es seguro y hay mucha para comer en las pequeñas restaurantes cercita del hostal. Si quieres un dormitorio-son bonísimo o si quieres algo privado, el ´suite´es un lugar donde mi mama podría dormir tranquilo...

What a great place... I don't think it is possible to find a better place to stay in all of Guatemala City. The price is spectacular for the service that you get here. The house has an feeling of peace and love. Every day you wake up to a healthy and delicious breakfast of eggs, beans and fried bananas. The beds are comfortable and clean. And the shared bathrooms are the best that I ever found in Central America. The zone is safe and there are alot of small restaurantes very close to the hostel. If you want dorm room-they are wonderful or is you want something more private, then the suite is a place where my mom could sleep in peace.

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.
