Great hostel, even though you need to get to it by boat, the view is amazing and it's really relaxing up there. But cos it's low season he had sent the chef away and decided to sleep all afternoon and be absent at night...so there was literally no one to ask anything. We couldn't get food or any drinks and weren't allowed to bring in food. Pretty disappointed, it kind of ruined it for us especially as everyone had such glowing reviews of Neil, still had 10 ppl staying and you need to be around.

The owner of the hostel was very helpful in arranging tours and transport. However, eating options are limited outside the hostel as this is across the lake from Flores. Ordinarily that would be fine though as it was the low season the hostel did not serve food every night, nor were they completely up to date on restocking and cleaning the bathroom. The wifi was intermittent, which made planning the next move difficult too.

You're not gonna believe how much you can enjoy with those amazing prices. Everything was perfect. Don't worry if you have a morning bus. The boat is always ready - you only need to pay about two dollars in the morning though :)

Beautiful view. Nice swiming pool and natural environment. Poor services (food and transport).

This hostal is not in flores it's in San Miguel which we didn't check before booking! You have to get a boat to and from it making it super difficult especially at night. The guy who runs it is really nice, it's secure. And quite a cool hostal to be at. The rooms were nice and we weren't too hot at all.

amazing little place on the hill across the lake from Flores. Niel was super helpful and very friendly, great huge cabin style rooms, pool and little restaurant. so much wildlife, including howler monkeys. no WiFi in rooms. easy to get over to Flores via boat taxi and niel arranged all of our trips and further travel. highly recommended! try the new sundown cruise!!

Place is located a short boat ride away from Flores. The owner is great with communication. We enjoyed our stay. The restroom had some ants, but what do you expect from a cool little bungalow... Would recommend! The pool wasn't in use and we were the only residents there during our two days. Nice view of the water. There is a small hike involved to get to the place. The owner picks you up and drops you off if he can when you get there and leave.

Great views to Flores and sunset. The hostel was pretty good, but is not very convenient to move around. Besides we couldn't get to the hostel until late evening, since you have to get there by boat.

Neil is a great host. Amazing views of Flores in your own little jungle nook. Will definitely stay here again when I go back to Guatemala

This hostel has enormous potential, with a fantastic view, pool and bar. The location has a con as you need boat transport to get there, making every excursion a bit more challenging. I did find the lack of a kitchen to use and store food disappointing. The beds and bathrooms weren't particularly clean. However, the hostel owner was the nicest, helping out with everything! Can't say the same for the rest of the staff though.

The location is great but simple. You have to go by boat to the other side, takes 2-3 minutes.. But the view on flores is great.

100% review might sound like I'm not being serious, but that's honestly the case. Neil made my stay the best of all my Central America travels and that's why I've been there twice. On this trip, he hired a local woman to climb a million steps at 8:30 at night with a stove and propane tank to cook empanadas for my girlfriend for her birthday. We were served in a treehouse with chocolate cake and coffee. For my girl's first time out of country, this will be a memory she will never forget. Ever.

We loved the view of Flores and chilled out atmosphere here. Slightly inconvienent if you have to boat to Flores often, but for us it was well worth the trip. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends!

You can find a great service in this hostel. The view from the hostel is also beautiful. For me the main problem was the matrix. It wasn’t comfortable at all. On the other hand, it is a good place if you want to be isolate, because San Miguel has only a couple of little grocery stores so you should cross the Lake and pay for the boat every time you need to do anything: take a shuttle, go to ATM, have a meal in a restaurant or buy food.

The owner of the hostel was very accommodating.

Amazing place and Neil is the man. Totally recommend to anyone. One issue we had though - booking a Tikhal day trip through the hostel costs more than what others charged. Don't think they are trying to swindle anyone, but just fyi to others - shop around the travel agencies would be better I think. But again, one of the best places I've stayed for the money and in general. Beautiful view and super chill atmosphere. Will stay there again if I come back!

Lovely lodge with a great view, good hot showers and clean bathrooms. Friendly staff, good food but expensive. Don't buy any tours or shuttle's here, they are also very expensive (150% of the price u pay in Flores)

It's a great hostel hands down. The only problem is that it can be a little difficult to get to and there is a curfew since the boats running to the island stop running around 10 at night.
