Had an awesome time at El hostel. I stayed on two occasions around Semana Santa. Both times staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming.

The breakfast is delicious...

Great hostel. Exceptionally clean, and great service by all staff members . Be warned though that it can be loud on the street at night, so if you're a light sleeper, get a room away from the front. Best wifi I've encountered in Guatemala thus far!

Although this hostel ranked well with other travelers I found it to be noisy and more expensive than other much quieter hostels in the area. Cafe No Se is just across the street and this bar gets very noisy until very late.

I hd two very different experiences here - my first visit was two days in a 7 man dorm room towards the back of the hostel. Nice clean room, helpful staff, reasonably quiet. Only 3 showers for ladies so if it's full, be prepared to wait. During my second stay, I was put in the ten man dorm at the...

Good location, cute hostel. Clean, great service, great free breakfast, wifi in rooms and common area. Hot showers, although shared. We were in 10 dorm rooms, and was just fine. It is overlooking a street, so you may hear music at nights, so if a light sleeper, perhaps ask for the privates , or dorms more so at back more...
