The Best Hostels for Solo Travellers in Guatemala City

Updated: 27 April 2018
For some solo travellers, Guatemala City might seem too intense a destination for an extended stay. But skipping the country’s capital would mean missing out on a city that’s got a huge amount to offer, including enticing cuisine, the country’s best museums and vibrant nightlife. Here are some of the best hostels for solo travellers to base themselves in while getting acquainted with the city.

Hostal Las Volcanes, Guatemala City

Hostal Las Volcanes is a good first stop for anyone flying into Guatemala: once through security, the hostel is just a short walk (or a seconds-long taxi ride) away. That’s not all Las Volcanes has to offer, though; it also has friendly staff that will go above and beyond to ensure that every guest starts their stay in the city on the right foot, and a lovely garden to relax in if you’ve had a few too many cervezas while meeting fellow travellers.

For the daytime, Guatemala’s museums and galleries are just a short journey away. For anyone more interested in relaxing and recovering from the previous night, the hostel has a rooftop terrace where guests can escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
