    Booked last minute after issues with my flight and arrived in GC way later than expected. Showers were warm, bed was nice and private (and rock hard-only downside), and the front desk staff was super friendly. He even offered to call me in Uber if my app didn’t work.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was good and the kitchen is equipped. The dorms are quiet and with comfortable beds although some mosquitoes go inside. The common area is nice. The toilets are very large and with good pressure.

    Really nice and helpful staff. Beds are really comfy and you get privacy even though it’s a dorm. Breakfast is included (pancakes and fruit) and the showers are warm! It was quite empty when I was here though, but I guess it’s because Guatamala City isn’t that nice.

    Nice place and nice staff. The zone is the most central but not as safe as central.. In the night is better to pay attention if u wanna reach it by walking.. Anyway the green line that is safe and frequently stops right next to it

    Only stayed here one night before having to catch a flight. It's a great price for what you get. No issues. It was pretty quiet though and not much of a community feel, so if you're looking to meet other travellers i'm not sure this is the best place. If you're looking for a bed a spot to chill for a night it's great.

    I think the photos look much better than the actual hostel itself. No AC but they do have fans in the room and individual fans in your capsule. Doubles as a nice device to dry your hair with, but can be quite loud. Be prepared that there may be little critters in your capsule. Water was hot and nice pressure when no one else was showering at the same time. Staff was not the most friendly, didn't even walk us to our room or show us where the toilets were.
