2. Clinically clean and great design
If you watch any kind of hospital-based drama like Greys Anatomy you’ll see surgeons thoroughly scrubbing in before they enter the OR.
The owners of Cucuruchos apply the same level of cleanliness.
The whole place is spotless and you will often be excusing yourself as you walk over a freshly mopped floor.
After a long time on the road, clothes start to suffer: dust, sweat, beer and food tainting the fabric.
A typical hostel laundry service seems to involve the clothes being momentarily dunked in cold water then hung on a line to dry.
We were astounded when our laundry was returned two hours after we handed it in. Spotless, smelling like a summer meadow and vacuum packed to ensure the neat folds were retained.
I’ll be honest; it brought a tear of happiness to my eye, as I got dressed.
The hostel has a modern design and at the same time includes many typical details of the Guatemalan culture.
It is a mix between the colonial, traditional Guatemala, and contemporary design.
With fast speed WiFi throughout the building, you can work or chill in bed.
To give you and fellow guests privacy, thick calico drapes cover the full width of the bed.
I have stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and this is the first that has ever performed a housekeeping service on my dorm bed.
Returning from a morning excursion I thought I had walked into the wrong dorm.
My clothes were immaculately folded and my crisp bed sheets made with perfect hospital corners.
The shared bathrooms may be a tad small but they are beautifully designed, spotlessly clean and fully functional.
There is even hot water in the shower, a treat in this part of the world.
As with the whole hostel, many everyday items have been upcycled to serve a new purpose and leave Cucuruchos bursting with character.
Distressed wood doors have been salvaged, light shades are made of old buckets, sinks had former lives as pans and tables were once large cable spools. It all works beautifully.
It all works beautifully.
