I stayed here one night because it is the same location as Quetzaltrekkers and my hike was leaving at 4:45 am. I figured I was getting up at 4:30am anyways so I just needed a place to lay my head for a few hours. I didn't book ahead, just showed up and they gave me a private room with private...

Not a picky traveler at all (always traveling really low-budget), but would def. not recommend this place. I actually disliked it so much that I am writing a negative review for the first time. It seems like this hostel has stopped operating a few years ago. There is no such thing as a reception (you need to knock at a...

Casa Argentina had three advantages for our family of five: it is cheap, the owners are friendly, cheerful and helpful, and Quetzaltrekkers treks start from here. If you are very particular about clean rooms or are allergic to cats then don't stay here. For us, one night was okay but we wouldn't do a multi-day stay when there are more...

We booked into Casa Argentina for one night as it was the closest place to where our trek left from. Very disorganised when we tried to check in, no one really new what was happening.We eventually were shown a room which was something not many people would have slept in.I have stayed in many hostels in my travels but this...

This is a super cheap option - if you want that and aren't fussed at what cost that comes this could work for you. However, for us - the rooms are not that clean, cold and really run down. The kitchen is filthy. That may be manageable but then the surrounding shared areas in the hostel (common outdoor areas) were...

The first night I stayed with 3 friends in a room which just ok, it was very dirty, and the cats go into the rooms and leave hairs everywhere (which is ok, except for my allergy), but because it was so cheap I let it go. We stayed there because the next day we were going to climb with Quetzaltrekers,...

This is one of the cheaper options in Xela and you no doubt get what you pay for. 30Q for a bed in the dorm, otherwise known as 'Bed City' due to the amount of beds they managed to fit inside the room. Besides the ones you could sleep on there was stacks of mattresses up to the roof in...

Casa argentina is a great place to stay for a while. For 200 quetzales you have a private room for a week. Ofcourse there is only 1 hot shower (without light), you need to bring your own toiletpaper and the toilets are leeky, but you pay only 20 dollars a week! The owner is really nice and can help you...

This place unfortunately is overpriced for the quality it delivers. By the time we arrived in the afternoon, they showed us a room which was not even prepared (old sheets on bed and garbage in bathroom). The rooms was quite damp and quite smelly and the shower leaking. The hostel offers a great terrace though with nice views and the...

“The rooms in the back near the Quetzaltrekkers office are ideal if you are doing a trek the next day, but otherwise go for the ones further away lest y be waken up at five am when the group of Trekkers arrives.”
