About Guatemala City
The capital and most populated city of Guatemala, Guatemala City is very westernized for a Central American city. You will find many American retail, food, and other stores here, reflecting the large influence that the U.S. has on the Guatemalan economy.
Despite all of this, Guatemala City has a reputation for being unsafe, given the large amounts of money that occupy these parts and the excessive poverty that lives next door. The crime and murder rates here are higher than anywhere else in Guatemala. Many of the locals themselves will tell you that the city is unsafe, and come nightfall, you should not go outside at all. If you do need to go outside, do not under any circumstances walk -- instead, catch a cab.
The hostels in Guatemala are within Zone 10 or Zone 13. The hostel workers should be able to give you tips on how to stay safe and where to go within the area for anything that you might need during your stay in Guatemala City. Most of the sights here are museums, churches, or other historical buildings. There are museums with the history of textiles, Mayan history museums, and ethnology and archaeology museums. The National Palace has some interesting architecture and art work also. The Union Church and La Merced have quite impressive architecture for churches in the area.
They have a really great public transport system -- if you sign on and get a card that you top up, it makes getting around Guatemala City quite cheap.

Hostal los Volcanes
"Clean, Comfortable, Friendly Atmosphere - I liked my stay here. Although I think it was a bit overpriced for the quality of the establishment. The price was $25 for a private room and $15 extra for an additional person. So $40 plus a 22% tax which adds $8 for a total of $48 for a room with only one bed. We stayed in the second story of one of their two newly built rooms which was built on the backyard of the property, separate from the main...
Hostal Hermano Pedro
"Bizarre Experience - I do not recommend this hostel. The owner accused me of lying to her due to her eavesdropping and misunderstanding a conversation I was having with my girlfriend in English. When I explained the situation to her son, he apologized. However the owner then came into my room and made bizarre comments to my girlfriend that made us both feel quite uncomfortable. I will not return under any circumstances. There was also no hot...

"A great experience all around! - We enjoyed our stay here immensely. The hostel is located in a safe district in a central location. Easy to get to Centro Histirico and airport. Two excellent museums to walk to a few blocks away. The owner will drive guests to the airport or to catch buses -- in our case, to Antigua. Her son gave us an excellent overview of Guatemala and all the must see places to visit." …"… as the closest supermarket is...
