Adobe XD doesn't have a way to create real guides yet. You can add your vote for that feature here: Guides – Adobe XD Feedback
In the meantime though, you can closely approximate guides this way: create regular Line objects and then lock them so you can't accidentally move or select them. Other objects will snap to these lines just like guides. The only trick is, if you ever need to export the whole artboard, you'll have to manually hide these lines so they're not included in the exported image (you can multi-select them in the Layers panel and then use Object > Hide to toggle all of them at once).
Hope that helps!
When I can expect to add option guidelines Layout?

Minimum viable product being redefined? Medieval stuff guys, this is the bare minimum.
Looking forward to guides being added - yes a basic requirement but on the whole, XD is a MASSIVE timesaver so can live with it for now.
Work around as suggested - draw your grid using lines - they can be positioned exactly, by using the right hand property panel for x and y co-ordinates. Once you are happy with it, save them as a symbol so they can be used everywhere. Alternatively, create them in Illustrator (quicker using duplicate) and paste it in.
Also, you can draw 2 lines (horizontal or vertical) and set them as a "Repeat grid" to very quickly draw a grid.
I create a bootstrap guidelines by hand (rectangles)
I positioned them in front of the layout but when I try to move elements, I can´t.
Even the guidelines is locked.
Waiting for this too!
