Located on a safe street in a safe part of town, the hostel is simple but clean. Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was decent, and there's a good kitchen and internet. It's close to the transmetro, so easy access into the center of town. Guate gets a bad rep, but we found the city has a big focus on rejuvenating streets and parks, and some of the sites (palace, relief map, avenida 6a walking street) were really nice!

the hostel is clean,the showers are perfect,BUT:i went for a trip for a couple of days and they offered me to leave my bigger backpack there,in a room,where only the staff members had access to.when i came back i recognized,that several things,like my ear-phones,my memory-flash and so on has gone.i was disappointed (not because of the things,which were stolen,BECAUSE OF THE ACT!),but the administrator of the hostel blamed at least ME,that i left my things there...and also blamed me,that i made up a STORY,which can impossibly be true....WHAT I LEARNT FROM THAT:even in zona 10,in one of the most recommended hostels,YOU CAN'T TRUST THE PEOPLE!so if somebody still wants to go there,LOOK AFTER YOUR THINGS!

Service: The hotel provides excellent service.

Room: The room was comfortable.

Location: The location, Zone 10 near Reforma Avenue, is the best because it is a residential area where there are many nice hotels, a variety of very good restaurants, banks, taxis and a shopping mall within walking distance.
Access to Internet and telephone service is also provided.

What I liked the most, was the friendly staff at Xamanek.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a clean, convenient place to stay
in Guatemala City.

The rooms and bathrooms are always clean and tidy. It's in a great spot in Guatemala City, right in the heart of Zona 10, where all the action is, including great restaurants and bars, and fairly close to the airport. The staff there is always friendly and helpful with whatever they can help with. And they always remember return guests! The rates are reasonable, given the location and the facilities - kitchen, lounge area, computer with fast internet, etc. - and it's great to have a choice of dorm or private room. It's my place of choice whenever I'm in the city.

Told we would be picked up in car for $5US but when we arrived they charged us $10US.

The dorm beds were meant to be $15US each (as on their website and confirmed by email), which is already crazily expensive for a hostel in Guatemala. When we arrived (at 9pm at night) they charged us $20US each which I thought was absolutely ridiculous.

We didn't venture out at night as although it is in the safe part of town, the side street that it's in still looks quite scary to step out of at night.
