We stayed at El Hostal for 2 nights. It is very tranquil and has a lovely courtyard to chill in with a bar and space to hang out. The beds are super comfy with abundant power sockets and curtains for privacy. There were hot showers too and the laundry service was excellent. The breakfast was out of this world -...

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. So many amazing things to note from the delicious breakfast that is included in the room to the beautiful little hang out area in the middle. Most of all the staff are so amazing, friendly and knowledgeable. They will go out of your way to help you! Both my...

The photos don't do this hostel justice. Really lovely communal space and shared dorms. Bathrooms were one of the best from our two week trip in Central America! Run by locals and all produce sourced locally. The staff were very kind when I fell ill during the trip. Highly recommend this hostel, plus you step out the door and you...

Really nice hostel on a buzzy street in a good location with lots going on. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was lovely - good beds with curtains, plug socket by the bed and steps rather than a ladder up to the top bunks. High quality! The communal area is really nice and light but makes the rooms...

Inexpensive, clean and friendly place in a nice neighborhood. You can stay in a dorm quite inexpensively or stay in one of two private rooms. Also very reasonable. I have stayed here at least 6 times and always feel relaxed and welcome. And can't say enough about the breakfast which is included in the price. You will meet lovely people...

I highly recommend this hostel! From the moment I stepped foot in this quaint little hostel I felt welcomed. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, wifi is great, and the complimentary breakfast is delicious. The staff are not only incredibly helpful and accommodating but they treat you like family. I am sad to leave and if I'm ever back...

There is a reason this place was voted best hostel in Guatamala for 2016 & 2017. Seriously so surprised at how nice it was here, the showers are hot (finally), the beds are comfortable and the atmosphere is great. The staff are unbelievably friendly and accommodating and the breakfast... Don't even get me started on the breakfast (delicious). And all...

I was recommended this spot by a friend. It was a great find. After partying for an entire month it was nice to find a place with balance, nice beds, warm showers, and staff that you actually become friends with. Great location and a great atmosphere to pre party but then the bar shuts down at 10 in order to...

This hostel was incredibly clean and nice. The free breakfast is amazing- you get to choose from a menu what you would like. The breakfasts themselves are equivalent to about 5 or 6 US dollars, and they are completely included. This was a great bonus. The bathrooms and rooms were cleaned daily. Showers had plentiful hot water. The atmosphere of...
