This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Stayed at El Hostel for two nights. It is comfortable enough, breakfast is OK. The social area is cramped. El Hostel's website says they speak English but they do not. They did arrange for our trip to Lake Atitlan which was very helpful (cost was $12 US per person). The other guests were young, we were the only oldsters. Cleanliness was not bad. Shower water was comfortable but not hot. They do provide filtered drinking water for a donation. Be prepared to pay for every cup of coffee and if you book online or arrange airport transportation online you will pay more for the room and transportation. We rented a Taxi from Guatemala City and paid a few bucks less then El Hostel's online price. The price listed on their bulletin board was substantially less than we paid for the taxi. If you do a walk-in to rent a room you'll save about 30%. The Sky Cafe is just across the street and is a nice place to spend some time on the rooftop. We will be trying a different hostel on our return trip.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Friendly helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms. A little strange having people breakfast right outside your door, but overall I strongly recommend.
