“Definitely Stay at Quetzalroo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2011

This is hands down the best place I've stayed at on my trip to Guatemala and Honduras. The staff are one happy family and make you feel so welcome that you won't want to leave.
For the price I can't imagine how you'd find a better place to stay in Central America.

Free Airport pickup, vegiemite on toast for breakfast, amazing walking tour, really nice rooms and free wifi.

Look no further... stay at Quetzalroo.

My friend and I were in Guatemala City for a day before catching a flight the next day and we weren't intending to do much there as we were (frankly) a little worried about the safety of the city. However, our fears were dispelled by the amazing owner of Quetzalroo, Manuel. He gave us a very informative and interesting tour around the city center and was extremely generous and friendly. The hostel also provides delicious breakfast (loved the guava jam!!) and comfortable facilities. A must-stay in Guatemala City!

We stumbled upon this place from the recommendation of a couple travelers we befriended in Tikal. Probably the best decision of our trip! We only saved one day at the end of our travels for Guatemala City, because we had heard so much about the violence and danger of the city (from foreigners and Guatemalans alike). Quetzalroo made our stay so safe, comfortable, interesting, and enjoyable! In the $15/person rate, they include pick-up/drop-off from the airport or bus station ... even after their car broke down on the afternoon of our arrival, they still managed to pick us up with their trusted taxi driver. Because we were a couple (also enjoying our anniversary), they pushed two beds together for us and allowed us to have the back room to ourselves. So thoughtful! The owner Manuel took us that evening to the best restaurant in town (on foot, in the rain!) ... In the morning, the breakfast of coffee/tea/juice, bread, and fruit is perfect, and again, even with car troubles, Manuel and his brother took us on a mini-tour of the city -- to the market (best food and best crafts!), to the main plaza, to "hot dog alley," and to search for the best coffee in town. You ask, and they deliver. They work so hard and are so enthusiastic about showing visitors the best of Guatemala city ... this is a must-stay hostel!

While my stay was too short, Manuel still invested time in me as a guest. He goes the extra mile for all his guests even those he has no room for! I however stayed in the double room and had the best 6 hour sleep of my life...

Quetzelroo is probably doing more for Guatemala City tourism than the Government could ever dream of and they are to be commended for their passion for their city.

Airport pick ups, free wifi and a delicious breakfast as well as the after sales service make this the only hostel to stay in if you're in the city. Dont be tempted however to make your stay a pit stop - stay and see what the capital has to offer, you couldn't be in safer hands.

Even being now in Madagascar, i still think of my wonderful time at QuetzalRoo(m). I stay in Guatemala for a month and was using QuetzalRoo as a base to visit the country... it was indeed an excellent choice. QuetzalRoo team, became my small Guatemalan family. Today, 4 months later, they still are !
Dont miss this perfect place in Guatemala city. The whole team would make their best efforts to make your stay comfortable and adapt to your needs and requirements !!

Quetzalroo is definitely the best hostel in Guatemala City, Guatemala and even in Central America. The owners try to treat their clients in a very familiar way, and it works. I was planning to spend only one night in Quetzalroo but I ended up staying more than two WEEKS! Unforgettable! Keep up the good work guys!
