Second time staying here- wouldn't go anywhere else in the city. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, great breakfast. Will be coming back for sure.

Everything was great about the hostel. The staff was very friendly, and the other travelers were fun to hang out with and interesting to talk to. However, the staff does not speak much English, so communication can be a bit challenging if you don't speak much spanish. It's not too much of a problem, as the other travelers are usually more than happy to translate for you.

Close too the city centre and also close to some good super markets and a small mercado, great kitchen and bathroom facility's, the free do it yourself laundry was great, i have never had this before and was nice to wash my cloths whenever i wanted. Friendly staff and guests make this a good place to stay in Guatemala city. The wifi wasn't working so well but after asking and staying elsewhere its was because of a company upgrade country wide so no real complaint there. Dorm beds were short 5"10

Had a great time. Met some great people and there are some great surrounding pubs. The bathrooms need some attention but it's not a five star resort so get overit :) all in all great hostel, highly recommended.

We absolutely loved the workers, especially the owner. This world definitely needs more people like the owner, he actually stopped partying with all travelers just to walk us to the bus station to make sure we were safe. The vibes were great, it felt like we were a big family. The bed we slept in (my girlfriend and I) wasn't top of line but we still slept soundly. Kitchen and bathroom's were clean, we couldn't have asked for more!

I have stayed there befor and have always love it. Alfonso and his girlfriend are lovely people. Going there is a mixe of your home, a travel agency for all the information you get and a family . You will be welcome and safe!Lissandro is an incredable tattoo artiste and i beleve all the people working there are the best ! I have quit Theatro International with my heart full of good memory . It is simply the place to be ! C.P.

I really enjoyed my stay oft 3 days in this hostel. The stuff was really lovely and helpfull and the owners Lizzy and Alfonso were really kind! I even got to see alfonsos other hostel near monterrico, which is going To be open in the next couple of weeks. It is an amazing place to just hang loose all day in a hammock and experience more of the pure, local life surrounded. And really enjoyable are their Matrazes, haven't slept so well in a long time :)

Owner Comment (Hide)
I’m the owner of the hostel and the security of the travelers is a priority for us. We right now are checking the closed TV circuit of cameras to see exactly what happened but unfortunately it is too late because the system don’t back up so much time. I would have been glad if you would have told us immediately. Now is a little late. Nothing has ever happen in the eight months of the life of the hostel to any guest´s integrity or properties. Our top priority is the safe of our guests.

It's more like a 5 star hostel. WELL WELL well, this was my first time at Theatre International Hostel in Guatemala city, but........ really is HOME away from home. However, are you looking for FUN, is the BEST . Finally the place, the staff ( an old lady Mariaelena) were incredible amazing. GUESS what???? I'LL be back :>)

Beautiful place! Love the travel phrases written all over the hostel: "Travel as much as you can..." You can use a well equiped kitchen, the clean bathroom with hot shower, and the two banana pancakes in the morning: nice. You can meet people and is close to the cntral market. They are doing the things just right for the travelers. Recommended.
