Great place to stay,close to the airport,very good pick up service,even took me to the dentist.they cant do enough to help.zone 10 is a safe area to stay .as i have said its a good hostel.
STAY HERE! I had heard from everyone that Guatemala City was just a place to pass through on the way to somewhere else, but this hostel and it's owners are passionate and dedicated to changing that. Marcos is amazing--he knows everything that's going on in the city and is happy to take you with him. I signed up for the walking tour, but since it was just me we went by bike instead and it was awesome. Marcos and his mother sometimes make dinner that you can buy and it's always tasty and cheap.

Staff was friendly and helpful. They were true to their word. They picked us up from the airport after we called when we landed. A friendly atmosphere and the food was excellent.
Great hostel! The owners are very helpful with history, hand drawn maps, and pick ups/drop offs to the airport and bus station. William, who runs the walking tour, is happy to take you out to the bars/clubs for happy hour and at night. Within an hour of arriving, Marcos (owner) took me to a live music bar to meet some of his friends. I visited great (cheap) restaurants and lively clubs with William that I would have never found otherwise. Felt totally safe in the city with these guys.
i really couldn't recommend theses guys enough, i booked one night and ended up staying 3, Marcos is amazing, a new friend :) everyone there went out of there way to make my stay in Guatemala fun, informative and safe. will definitely be going back on my way out :)
A crowded hostel, the actually location is hard to find. The area is not safe to walk around.
This hostel is expensive but you are well looked after here. The owner, Marcos, speaks excellent English and takes guests out for nights out and arranges meals in the hostel on certain nights. The hostel also collects you or takes you to your next mode of transportation. The hostel is located in Zona 10, a safe but pricey part of the city. There´s a computer for free internet use and the dorms are comfortable. I´d recommend this hostel and Guatemala city is worth seeing too.
We have stayed at Quetzalroo 2 times on our trip and will return for our last night in Guatemala. It felt like home the first night we were there, with Marcos, his sister and Mom being very friendly and helpful. We were given suggestions on sights to see, places to stay and restaurants all over the country. A communal cookout completed our Friday night, with all the guests mingling and sharing info on good places to go. Highly recommende by us!
The airport pickup and drop off were a big plus. Staff were very helpful. Room and bedding were clean and comfortable. I did not use the laundry facility, but it would be a plus for those needing it. Thank you Quetzalroo for making me feel welcome.
Really can't fault this place. For the money I paid it was great value. Staff were helpful and even went out of their way to personally show me around town. All the adventure activities they offer are great value to easily undercutting the competition.

These boys really care! although a little far away from stuff, they will show you a good time. Best place to stay in Guatmala city
Great hostel with friendly staff. Felt very safe. The breakfast is really tasty and they have a good little tv room which you can relax in. Recommended.
Great hostel in a city which has a reputation for being intimidating. Felt really safe and the staff were excellent. Good atmosphere and free shuttle to and from the airport.
