“Avoid this one”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

I've stayed one night at this hostel with my brother, and it was enough to realize the waste of money that we did. The place is a mess, with dirty dorms and bad location (Guatemala City downtown), making it hard to feel safe at night if you need to eat something after your check-in, since Gerona hasn't any snacks to sell. I'd avoid this place.

Stayed February 2014

Admittedly the staff is really warm-hearted and friendly, be careful!!! It's all surface mask!!! My friend, Lichee lost 300 dollars and a souvenir doll; I lost my precious Ethiopian scarf given by an equally precious friend, and a newly bought Guatemala bag!!! Other references include losing credit card and money was found to have been lost!!! Even the area is one of the most dangerous parts in the City. For your security, PLEASE PLEASE don't choose this one!!! I don't know why it only got positive references, perhaps some racist just hates Asians! Sleeping on the street is even better: at least you know who might take your life, without regretting having showed your stupid trust and affection!!! My worst worst experience ever!!! Even only one couch host just stole a non-important small stuff!!!

Room Tip: Never choose any room here!

I arrived at midnight after having booked the hotel at 9am. Despite the lateness of both my booking and arrival, a man (Rudolpho) was on hand to greet me, and offered me a drink! The internet here is fast, purified water is available, and the kitchen is kept clean. The area seems run down, but is safe. Would stay here again.

This hostal is in zone 1 and maybe the area is not the best but using common sense is all good. I travelled alone (female) and both the owner and the person in charge were attentive to all my needs and gave me all the route and safe tips I needed. I stayed there for 10 days and will be back in three more weeks and in the summer 2013.
