16 street 8-00 Zone 13 Aurora 1 , Guatemala City Guatemala
Convenience is the theme at this nicely decorated hostel. Being so close to the airport, one might think it was shady, but the opposite is true. They are located in a gated community which is very safe. Furthermore, the cozy and well-appointed rooms (both private rooms and dorm rooms are available) create a great atmosphere and are kept clean and ship-shape! Free breakfast is only one more reason that this place should be on every traveler's short list. It's perfect if you need to stay near the airport because of an early or late flight, but that's not the only reason you should stay. They also offer Wi-Fi, a pool, and comfortable common areas and courtyard for relaxing.
