8/10 Very good

We really liked the view from our door of the cathedral and the mountain. You could also sit and watch volcan Fuego erupt at night. I really miss waking up to that view. I wish that on two of the days of our stay we didn't miss breakfast, but we had schedule a tour and had to leave early on our last day.

6/10 Good

This place was just okay for us, nothing special. The room was pretty tiny but had cute, minimal decor. Shared (cleaned) bathrooms located on the ground floor so makes it inconvient if you have to go in the middle of the night. Breakfast was the best part, staff was nice. We got discouraged when asking for a better rate as we were leaving at 5:30 a.m and wouldn't be having breakfast. They didn't negociate at all so we decided it wasn't worth it (too bad because we also ended up buying our transport tickets from somewhere else instead of here). Ended up finding a way better place for half the price so I guess it was a blessing in disguise for us.

So clean, friendly staff, great location
We actually stayed here twice, before and after a trip to Lake Atitlan. The staff are amazing, so helpful. We booked all our shuttles with them and they had a lot of other tours offered. This place is constantly cleaned, even the bathrooms. The breakfast is huge and varied and you can eat on their roof terrace with a view of three volcanoes. The beds were comfortable and each room we stayed in had a fan and screens in the windows. The rooms on the roof seemed to be brighter and nicer compared to the first floor rooms. The bathrooms are on the first floor, but the stairs are lit at night.

A perfect little gem
This hostel has everything you need. The staff were the friendliest ever. Breakfast is excellent with fresh fruits, eggs, beans, pancakes, real coffee and hot chocolate. The room was small but very nicely decorated with a comfy bed and gorgeous views. They helped us with booking transfers from the airport and to Lake Atitlan. We would definitely stay here again.
