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.

Also included is complimentary continental breakfast, including toast, fresh fruit, tea or a cup of Guatemala's delicious coffee... mmm... smell the beans roasting now...! We can even prepare your breakfast before an early morning departure for your onward journey.

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

    Quetzalroo is simply amazing. The people running it are beyond amazing. I got very sick from eating toxic fish in Honduras and needed to go back to the hospital in Guatemala City. I told Maria (one of the hosts) that I thought I needed to go to the hospital. She took me to the hospital herself, translated for me with the doctors, and then made me tea when I got back to the hostel after being released. She treated me like family, and I will never forget her kindness. Quetzalroo is world class.

    The minute we walked through the door we felt welcome. We had lost our bags in transit, so we felt sad. But instantly Marcos helped us feel better and offered us spare clothes! The next day Marcos and his Mum took us shopping and then he also drove us to dinner. We even got to walk their dog, Peanuts! A great start to Guatemala and Marcos also helped us plan the rest of our trip. Thank you!!

    Great family running this - was sorry to miss out on cycling tour, was kindly invited out for live music by family and dropped to bus for 5.30 at no charge. Feels like a family setting more than a party place which was great for me. Nice social space and roof terrace. No WiFi in room but strong elsewhere. Pricey but for comfort, safety and homely feel, I’d stay here again if in Guatemala. Also nice and clean 😊

    This was a good hostel with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The downsides were that wifi didn't work in our room, so we had to go sit in the hallway in our PJs or go upstairs to the kitchen. Also, our first night, they overbooked themselves and it felt like Marcos was repeatedly trying to get us to leave the Hostel so he could make room for a big group by trying to convince us to go to Antigua overnight when we kept expressly saying we didn't want to.
