Property Description

Who are Quetzalroo? The founders of Quetzalroo are two travellers who met in Australia and opened up their own backpackers hostel in Guatemala City.

We wish to share our passion for travelling with others and provide our guests with safety and comfort as they discover Guatemala's capital city and use it as a hub for exploring the rest of this beautiful country.

Quetzalroo offers a boutique hostel environment with personalised service. We are located in the centre of 'Zona Viva' (the 'live zone'). This is the nicest, safest & cleanest part of town where you will find the best hotels, restaurants, nightlife and shopping malls. We are also close to the airport (about a 7 minute drive).

Our hostel has comfortable beds (including linen) in mixed dorm accommodation with shared bathroom facilities. In addition, we have a private rooms for single or double occupancy, with shared bathroom facilities. We also have a kitchen, so if you wish to save some money by cooking your own meals you can, as the closest supermarket is within walking distance. We have a cool area for you to enjoy your meals & chat with friends. We have a computer with free internet use for our guests as well as FREE WiFi. We also have a common room for chilling out in, watching a DVD or reading a book... we call this the Outback Lounge.

We can help you organize the transfer to the airport and we are also more than happy to take you anywhere in zones 10, 9 and 13 (museums, bars and restaurants) in our own private vehicle.

Quetzalroo looks forward to welcoming you to our hostel and of course, Guatemala City!

    This is the coziest and best hostel you will ever visit. Very quiet and clean. Hot water and comfortable beds. The staff is amazing and it’s located in a fantastic area where there are many beautiful restaurants bars and dance clubs. Don’t be shy to ask for help and don’t forget to do the bike tour. Your guide Marcos will take you on an full-day adventure where you will see Guatemala City through an authentic lens. I would write more but I’m running out of space! Thank you!

    Perfect place to stay in Guatemala City! The beds are comfortable, rooms large, and just a great place to be based and get some rest. Also, the staff was fantastic! Even brought me for free coffee at one of the best coffee places in town. Wonderful

    The hostel is run by a very nice family who takes really good care of their guests and makes them feel at home. The bike tour is a great way to experience some of the culture and history of Guatemala City.

    Exceptional friendly and helpful staff. I really appreciated that I had a dorm for myself, and they put other people who had an early flight in another dorm. Good breakfast included. Most comfy beds I had in months of traveling. The terrasse ist also nice. The location is good for zona 10, and you can take the Transmetro bus for only 1 Quetzal to zona 1. Very good value. Only the extras are a bit more expensive than in other hostels, especially laundry service.

    I love Quetzalroo. It's not glamorous, but the communal space always has interesting conversation, it's super clean, and Marie and Marco really go the extra mile to be human being hosts! xxxx!

    Lowest rank for location, it is in Zona 10 - not close to Zona 1 activities. There is not a ton of things to do near the hostal. It is convenient to the airport (good for late arrivals / early departures), to Museo Popol Vuh, and Hedman Alas bus terminal (If going to Honduras). Quite, clean, & smaller - not a party hostal - also had an older crowd when I was there. Good breakfast included. Staff are friendly and helpful, though perhaps a bit less English than larger hostels.

    Great hostel overall, but the location isnt great. Doesn't seem to be much going on in that zone. It is close to the airport if that is something you're looking for. Beds were fine, no curtains though. The free breakfast was nice and the staff were friendly. Atmosphere was a bit disconnected, not a great social spot.

    Very safety conscious hostel! Was clean and tidy, rooms are spread out over an apartment style building. Very quiet. The taxes for booking here are very high. Not great value for money. Free breakfast is actually 10Q. We only needed a room for the night before we flew out the next morning and it did the trick for this but other than that it wasn’t anything special.
