Such a good view of Flores! And hostel owner went well out of his way to help us. Got up at 5am in the morning and took us down to the water so we could kayak at sun rise. Can't recommend enough!

By far the best hostel in our trip to Guatemala. Neil is a great man who runs a great hostel with a well-deserved reputation. The whole hostel has a very nice, laid back atmosphere, and Neil is very willing to help accommodate your needs. Excellent location overlooking Flores and Lake Peten Itza. Neil also has some good future plans for this hostel, so I can't wait to revisit in a year or too and see what he does with the place!

Pros -Ideal location if you want to be in the heart of the action and don't mind the 24/7 noises that come with it. -clean, well-kept facilities Cons -No on-site safety lockers or storage options so you either haul your valuables along on your five-hour Tikal excursion or to your lake swim or you take a chance leaving them in a dorm room that you share with strangers -No Wi-fi signal past the reception area -No more than 1 charging outlet in 4-bed dorm so it's a race to it

Chaltunha was awesome. The pool was a great perk! We were blazing hot and it was nice to come back to our hostel and to take a swim in the clean fresh pool. The rooms however were not as updated as I imagined but it seems like they are updating them. The fans could be replaced as the current ones make no difference in the air quality of the rooms. Niel and his staff are great and helpful. The food served here is more expensive than in Flores but it's really good. The view is beautiful!

It is very Dirty there. The atmosphere is not nice

Stunning hillside location which gives a feeling of seclusion and peace while still being very easy to get to Flores Island - the best of both worlds. Neil and his wife are extremely attentive to every need, the swimming pool is wonderful, the included breakfast good, the dorms super comfortable and clean and every meal that I had at the restaurant was excellent. Neil and his family have created a real treasure here - I'm not sure budget accommodation gets better than this anywhere.

This place is great! Neil sends you an email the day before you arrive with super helpful info about where to go with a map and a picture. This hostel isn't actually on Flores island...you take a water taxi across to San Miguel. Only takes about ten minutes and your first time over is free. The view from the hostel makes the trip over totally worth it! They have a good restaurant attached to the hostel. They have a nice pool too!

Very nice stay in a beautiful place with view over Flores Island

This hostel is beautiful, peaceful, clean, spacious, and above all the owner, Neil, is willing to help you with anything and everything at just about any hour of the day! He was such a help with booking buses and tours etc and at reasonable prices. It was nice to be out of the crowds and noise of Flores.

I enjoyed this hostel as it had a great pool / hammock area, and a fantastic view of Flores island. The hostel is located across the lake, which you can only access by water colectivo, which can be inconvenient if you want to grab groceries or dinner. The cabins with a bathroom in it are worth the extra money, otherwise the toilet block is outside and it frequently rains. A basic breakfast is included and they owners are more than happy to help you with whatever you need. I enjoyed my stay

The hostel was perfect, everything I expected. The beds were great, the shower was warm, the hammocks soft, the pool was perfect. The view was amazing. Neil was a great host and very helpful. I have recommended the hostel to several people now, because I had such a great time there. Also, i found the little boat rides across the lake really fun :)

Great view over Flores, Pool is nice (it's meant to be green, ask owner ;)), Staff/owner very helpful, familiar atmosphere, no kitchen, bar closed early but ok since most people leave for sunrise to go to Tikal. Nice atmosphere - feels like jungle-lodge. Liked staying there. Good value for money!

Amazing little hostel just off the island, great place to stay - especially when its hot as the pool and hammocks overlooking the lake and island of Flores are a perfect place to relax after a big day. Only a 5 minute walk from the hostel to the dock, and then a 3 minute, 5Q boat ride over to Flores. The owner Neil is also an absolute legend, super accomodating and going out of his way to make sure you have everything you need.
