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.

Room tip: The suite is a great place-big bed, private bathroom, and privacy in general. All the other rooms are the best value that I have saw in all of the capital cities in Central America. You cannot go wrong in this place.
