  • We only stopped for one night on our way to Guatemala City, the staff were very nice and welcoming. The location is good, just a few blocks from Real de Guadalupe. Nice breakfast! We booked a private double with bath which was great value and had it´s own safety deposit box and plenty of blankets, it gets cold at night in San Cris.

  • It´s a bit walk to the main street (10 minutes) but that´s ok. Very nice hostel - a bit like camping - but very cool. They even have a fireplace in the living room as it can gets very cold at night - thick blankets are provided.

  • Awesome hostel. Everything explained very well on arrival and good tips about good places to eat/drink in town. Nice, social vibe which the staff help to foster. Never a queue for shared baths. Great breakfast! Very quiet at night and the room had shutters which madd it hard to get out of bed as they kept out the light so well! P.S. kitten/puppy loverd might get a nice surprise if they stay here...
