    Great hostel. Very clean. Owner has very interesting story. I really enjoy my stay. Just be careful for the guy who offers taxi service from the hostel. Many times he asks doble or triple price competing to Uber or normal taxi - always ask price up front and compare.

    Life Builders operates an amazing and unique place to stay. The building and rooms are attractive and clean. The rooftop offers an incredible view of Guatemala City and the surrounding mountains. Breakfast and dinner were tasty and nutritious. The kitchen is very well equipped. The neighborhood felt reasonably safe and is interesting because you see how real Guatemalans live while also being near tourist attractions. Jason and Tressa are helpful and have a wealth of information about Guatemala.

    Everything was great at the hostel with large kitchen and pick-up from airport. My pick-up ride waited for me for a good while too so I was relieved to see him. The people that run it were very friendly and chatted to me for an hour or so next day about life in Guatamala etc. The view of the mountains is fine and it was very quiet. i was in an all-girl dorm alone so that was easy to deal with! I'll stay there on my way out of the country too.

    Great place for a good night of sleep after a long flight! The staff, facilities and airport transfer were great! Beautiful rooftop views! I’d recommend taking the airport transfer or a taxi to the place and not walk there, especially at night. Would stay there again!

    I arrived at the hostel in the afternoon and it was closed. I waited for hours and was ringing and knocking, calling, emailing, and still nothing… I’d just got off a 30 hour flight and was so tired so this was not what I wanted. I had to book and travel somewhere else. The hostel has still not got back to me and looked very closed
