4/10 Fair

Son bien racistas, hacen diferencia en atencion y trato si es un gringo o un hispano. Y los banos hay que compartirlos con otra gente porque los cuartos no son privados..

6/10 Good

I booked this place primarily for the free airport shuttle as i was arriving into Guatemala at 11pm and didn’t feel it safe to taxi alone at that time. The shuttle service pickup was great, but the shuttles going to the airport were not exactly as advertised (they had changed the times and cut down the shuttles) so communicate directly with them about this - I ended up having to Uber anyways unfortunately. I paid more money for a private room and it was not worth it. The room was shabby overall, dirty walls, bugs, uncomfy bed. For the price point of the private rooms you can find something much nicer in the city. The staff were nice and this place may be worth it if you are just staying in the dorms, but not worth it for private rooms.
