    housingHousing Information for Traveling Researchers


    Guatemala

     

    If anyone is working in Guatemala City for short research trips, I
     would recommend Xamanek Backpacker's Lodge. This is a brand new
     place (opened 29 June 2005), and is more like a B & B than a
     backpacker's hostel--and seems to attract human rights workers,
     researchers, etc. It costs $14.00/night, includes airport pick-up
     and drop-off, and daily breakfast. The rooms and bathrooms are
     shared, and there is a women's only room that has it's own bathroom.
     Amenities: nice living and dining room area, beautiful back
     patio.  It also has a kitchen open to guests. It's in Zona 10, but
     it's easy to get to the archives by taking bus 101 or bus 82. I
     found it to be a better value than Hotel Spring--especially because
     of the kitchen. Lavanderia and groceries are close. The manager, Ana
     Cristina Sost, is a tremendous source of info about the
     city--including helping find long-term housing, and speaks English
     and French fluently.
