    Superb hostel. The fact that it employs largely a deaf staff and endeavors to make its Guatemalan community a better place only add to the draw of this hip and tidy spot.

    This was the best hostel I’ve stayed at in Central America! Beautiful rooftop terrace with fresh herbs for tea and mats for yoga in the mornings, comfy beds, lockers, super clean and lots of places to relax. The owner was friendly and made it feel very homey. Great location as well, definitely recommend!

    One of the best hostels we’ve stayed in so far, the bed was very comfortable and the whole place was always clean. There is drinking water, tea and coffee available to guests, as well as books and games. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The overall atmosphere is very chilled out and relaxed. The hostel is located only a few blocks away from the main town square so it’s easy to walk to wherever you need to go

    Such a lovely hostel. It's decorated beautifully, it is super clean. The dorm room has everything a dorm room should have; big lockers, individual plugs and lights and curtains on each bed. The roof terrace has great views. The whole place is relaxing and the staff are lovely, especially Tajana who goes out of her way to make people feel welcome and to help them.

    Super cute place, very clean, quiet, helpful staff; they organized our shuttles and hike to Pacaya. The showers were hot, beds comfy, other visitors were chill. Definitely not the party hostel which I enjoyed! Rooftop is amazing!

    Overall clean hostel on quieter street. Easy walk to center of town. Nice hang out spots for reading or relaxing (the bean bag chairs are great) and an awesome rooftop space for enjoying the views, yoga, etc.

    Amazing hostel! The roof was the reason I booked and it didn’t disappoint. But what I wasn’t expecting was the warmth and care of the woman who runs the hostel, tatjana (spelling?). She was always nice and extremely helpful when it came to suggestions and questions. Free coffee all day was another plus. The hostel contributes to the community and has a super great vibe. Only negatives were that there is no fridge or kitchen. Also not much of a party atmosphere if that’s your jam (it’s not mine:)

    A truly excellent hostel - incredibly well run, super clean, and very well laid out. Their involvement with the deaf community is also a plus! A friend and I were looking for some quiet nights before the volcano hike, and this place fit the bill perfectly. The rooftop is also a great place to relax or do a workout.
