It has certainly had better days.  I have two friends who stayed at this place some year ago and they loved it.  I was very disappointed, though. The dorm room is very messy, and has different kinds of beds, some ok and some horrible. There was always something wrong, no lights, no water, flush didn't work.  And they charge extra...

If you are looking for a party hostel then don't stay here. If you want a chilled out vibe, private room and a fantastic breakfast included then this is your place! Met lots of nice travelers here, rooftop area has amazing views, rooms were average but pretty spacious and the highlight was breakfast. Best I have had at any hostel...

Stayed here for 4 nights on my way out of Guatemala and had a fantastic time. The atmos is more chilled than its sister Hostel but the bar area and terrace are great for meetups and pre-outing drinks. The dorm is fairly average but comfy and is split over two rooms so you're not constantly waking up. The best bit...

I stayed here over a week ago and still have super itchy bedbugs. The hostel itself is nice and friendly with a good bar and breakfast. But the thing to keep in mind is that there are bed bugs. Perhaps the worst part was the fact that the ladies working there tried to blame me on bringing in the bedbugs....

I arrived after a long day of travel and walked into the best happy hour vibe ever which was like Christmas after the bus ride. The staff are awesome, it's super clean and cosy and the breakfast-wow. The hardest thing is choosing what to have from the 11 or so options. My gave hostel in Guatemala!

We spent 1 night here before going to San Pedro. We met some nice people and had a good meal and breakfast. There is no kitchen to use and the communal seating area could be better as it was too wet and cool to use the roof terrace. We did have breakfast on the roof which was nice. The room...

We stayed here for 6 days during our recent trip and the Inn was great. The included breakfast was awesome & the staff very helpful. Sit on the roof terrace & soak up the panoramic views of the surrounding volcanos during breakfast while planning your day! We saw two rooms & while there might be a slight "musty" smell when...

Black Cat Inn was in an awesome location. A block away from the Parque Central, and around the corner from some great bars. We had a huge private room with private bath. So much space, and right on the courtyard. Very quite hostel, but lots of friendly travelers to talk to. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the restaurant...
