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 Hermano Pedro
"We arrived at Guatemala City airport late and with no hotel reservations. There was a mix up at the Taca airlines, but the great people from Rasca airway called Arturo and he came to get us and take us to his home. It's a friendly, clean and safe place, and Arturo and his family are so kind. His mother even went to the pharmacy for my 9-year-old daughter. It's a very family place, right down to the sisters cooking and first communion picture...

6ta Avenida y 15 Calle, Zona 1, 15-42
"Cleanliness, comfort, convenient location - Xamanek has to be one of the best hostels I have seen. The dorms are large and airy, with five or six beds each. And the showers are the best anywhere with really hot water all day and no widowmaker electric showerheads. The people I met there where mostly serious, interesting backpackers who did not mind paying a couple of Quetzales more to stay in the zona viva. So no moochers! I could also walk...
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.

There are no lockers or keys for the dorm room but owners state...
