This place was absolutely terrible. The room I stayed in was always moist for some reason, the bathroom, which there was only one of, was cramped and the shower was filthy. On top of the room and bathroom being gross, the manager is an incompetent man who will try to get you to go on a tour of the volcano...

The room was in a bad shape, but is fair for the price, for a great breakfast and for the family atmosphere. Standard for his price range. To find it: from the center, going north on the left side of the Santa Lucia street, just before the ruins of the Iglesia San Jeronimo, there is a worn white gate, open...

Theres only two good things in this Hostal: the price and the breakfast. Its a shame since If they took care of the place it could be a nice one. There's only one shower and toilet for everybody so most of the times there's a queue...the room was less than ok. The breakfast was really nice and the two girls...

When I arrived, I was greeted by the shouting owner because you cannot find from the street and the only sign is in the alley. After I was ushered in, I was turned over to a young lady who spoke no English while the owner (who is fluent) ran off. The first sign that this wasn't a good place to...

Simple but very good place to stay with only few rooms but very polite family atmosphere. The bearkfast is available. Despite it is in the cente it is not simple to find it, so don´t miss the confirmation e-mail from the owner with explanation how to reach it.

My partner and I stayed here for nearly two weeks while doing some volunteer work. We tried to get a better long term rate because we were staying for an extended period of time and wouldn't be there for the free breakfast but were only able to receive a very nominal discount. That said, it is one of the best...

Very calm, situated inside a building you won't ear noise of the street; Wi-Fi, great breakfast included, and a cat will play with you. Volcano view on the roof; nice people, especially Roberto who can also help you explaining what to visit in Guatemala

The hostel is run by Claudia and Roberto, a young couple who can speak some English. I paid for a private room, but was asked to share a room multiple times because I was receiving a "special price". It was easier to agree the first times because of how friendly I believed the couple to be. When I refused I...
