The staff at the Terrace hostel were so helpful and friendly. Lots of good advice. The rooftop is really nice and has great views of the volcano. They allowed us to store our bags with a small fee when we did Acatenango. The rooms were basic but fine. Pub crawl was good fun. The location was quite central with supermarkets... More

what can i say, i felt immediately welcomed into this wonderful little hostel. The staff here is so bang on, a big thumbs up to Maggie who helped me and my friends with so much advice and knowledge of the town and the festivities going on. The killer view of the volcanoes from the terrace bar is unmatched !

We were initially very impressed by the service we received from a stand-in American receptionist, who gave us great advice and helped book our trip. The terrace gave us a lovely view and good breakfast (but not big, and coffee not free). Location was also great, walking distance from the common central attractions, two large supermarkets and the central marketplace.... More

The terrace hostel has the best, most helpful and informative staff we met all trip! Dorms were simple, but had everything you would require. We did the Volcan Acatenango trip through the hostel, great price at 150Q and had great guides, all the equipment and didn't seem to miss out on anything the expensive trips gave you. The terrace were... More

Very average hostel. Only 2 showers for whole hostel which can be annoying in the morning. Staff v friendly. Food is pretty poor don't eat here. Don't have kitchen. Did seem to have good social scene but we were only here for a night. Rooms are basic.

Good experience for the most part. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere However, having roommates that stayed up til 4am doing cocaine, smoking cigarettes, and playing music in the dorm room one night wasn't the best experience ever. Other nights were good tho.
