    Only stayed one night. Did the job. Nothing fancy, good size beds with curtain and outlet in bed. Felt private.

    Loved Theatre International! Good location and facilities at a good price, only criticism would be that the staff didn’t know much about buses to other areas of Guatemala, and actually gave us outdated info. Other than that definitely would recommend!

    Vibe: Extremely laid back. Staff and people convaless all day. They'll just talk and hang out. All locals or close to it. Cleanliness: they scrub the place multiple times a day to accommodate so many people. Location: its a great jumping off point for most of the historical places you'll want to see. It's right buy the national police headquarters and presidential palace so the army and police are always around. SUPER SAFE. Do the city tour. It goes as long as you want to ask questions

    The only downside to our stay was that for half of the first day, there was no water and, although they advertised it, there was no hot water when the water was finally back on. Overall, we had a good experience.

    Great hostel. One of my favorites in all of Central America. Don’t let the picture fool you, the pool is merely a tub of water. However, the place is super clean, setup is awesome, staff were all very helpful, and location is nice, and by the way... shower is amazing!! Very much enjoyed my stay here and the free breakfast was top notch

    The staff there were so nice and helpful! I had a tour early morning at 4 am and the staff walked me over and waited with me until I was picked up cuz he didn’t want me to stand on the street by myself that early. However I felt the location wasn’t that safe, everything else was nice!

    Careful with your stuff guys! This is what happened to me: While I was in the city they cleaned up my bed a. took all my stuff like clothes, wash bag etc. When I came back I found my stuff spread all over the at reception as it was rubbish. My little purse which I put under the pillow was missing. In it a power bank, Apple Airpod earphones and customized earplugs. The hostel owner didn’t care and said the cleaning lady thought it was someone’s bed who had left. I doubt the purse just got lost.
