About Hacia El SurWe opened our doors in 2012, an idea born of three brothers from Guatemala City. Our vibe is very laid back and inviting for our international guests.We have high speed free wifi, laundry service ...More on site (& a clothes line) as well as a TV and DVD player for movie nights!There are all new beds, fresh clean and cozy new bedding. Private rooms or shared dorms. There's a ping pong table and lounge to relax in and large back garden courtyard, buy a beer, listen to the birds, meet other travelers - do as you please. We have a selection of 8 different breakfasts to enjoy everyday from 7:00 to 10:30. Of course we serve Guatemalan coffee too! Come to Cafe Divino, our breakfast, lunch and dinner bar with a menu of smoothies to burgers and beer and cocktails too.Conveniently at the front of our building is a tour company, bike rental and bike tour service as well as a shuttle booking service that picks you up right at the door. Very much appreciated when your departure is at 4 am! Things to know :*Check in at 1pm and check out at 11am.* All rooms have lockers to store your valubles.* Padlocks are available with a Q50 deposit or use your own.* Our front gate is locked at 10:00PM, but our night security guard is here to let you in and out 24 hours a day. The lights are mostly turned out at also at 10:00 for those needing rest , but feel free to take your group to our back garden or to a nearby bar for some socializing.* NOTE: there is a doorbell to alert the security guard to get in after 10:00. Please do not bang on the gate as it will wake other guests. * Parking area: at the rear of our property we have space for camper vans and some tents. Shower facilities, toilets and meals are available in the hostel for you. Less
