Good cheap hostel for a quick stay to or from the airport. We only stayed for the one night, the rooms are a little noisy as the walls are paper thin but you have to expect that for a hostel. The free breakfast of pancakes...More

We rented a private room in El Poeta hostel, which is not a bed and breakfast. Though they provide a basic breakfast, they are not what I would consider a bed & breakfast. The hostel is clean with basic amenities and we always felt secure....More

About
Description
The mission of El Poeta is to give the best impression of Guatemala to each of our guests. For that reason, we choose our location right in the heart of the historic centre (just two blocks from Central Market, More The Cathedral, The National Palace, The Main Square and right in front of the Museum of National History). In addition, we prepare every morning a delicious buffet of pancakes, coffee, tea and season fruits. We have a full equipped kitchen where you can cook. We created a nice patio where you can relax, read a good book and have a delicious coffee. El Poeta has seven private rooms and one shared dorm. Our facilities include two patios, designated smoking area, laundry machines, free WIFI in every room, security and reception 24 hours, a common computer, security camera circuit, refrigerator with sodas and beers, city maps, hot water, TV room, green patio and a relax atmosphere. The kitchen is open so you can use it and cook your favourite meal. We are located at 10th Avenue 9-49 zone 1. 10 minutes from the airport, two blocks from the Central Market. 4 blocks from the Central Park and Sixth Avenue of the historic centre of Guatemala City, and a short distance to all bus terminals that go to the main destinations in Guatemala. . The location is just perfect. By Taxi, from the airport: 10th avenue 9-49 zone 1. Any taxi driver should know the direction and should charge no more than US$10.00. It is pretty easy to locate the property in zone 1. We recommend to see the picture we have of our front view to identify easily the hostel. The door is black and has a small paper with the name and is right in front of The National School of Commercial Sciences. We have the Transmetro bus station 10 meters from the entrance to the Property. El Poeta policies and conditions: Check-in time starts at 1 pm. Check-out time is 11 am. Payment types accepted at this property: cash, credit card and debit card. This property may pre-authorize your card before arrival. Cancellation policy: 24 hours before arrival. Taxes included. Breakfast included. General: 24-hour reception. No curfew. No pets are allowed at this property. Less
