Nicely put together hostel. Great smoothies and even great staff - super friendly and attentive. Acoustics suck though and you can hear EVERYTHING in the whole hostel. But definitely a place I'd stay again.


Love everything about this place. Staff were always super helpful and friendly, rooms were clean , communal areas great, restaurant was very funky with comfy couches to chill out on and the food was AMAZING. The traditional mayan fish fillet dish is a MUST :) (also the vegemite toast for breakfast :p) we can't wait to come back


Cleanliness= 5/5 Location = 5/5 - on the island, quieter side. Cafe underneath has great food. Hospitality = 2/5 - no map,info given for the island, just checked us in and showed our room. but they did give us a towel, soap bars and toilet paper. WiFi = 4/5 - works in the room. "Thank you come again ?" = YES Come again!!! " - English is very limited by most of the staff.


Yaxha was nice place to stay though the noise during the evenings and nights was pretty loud. That was, however, told beforehand so we had our earplugs ready. It was easy to walk everywhere and the restaurant downstairs was a big plus as well as the laundry service.

Good hostel, very conveniently located. Friendly staff spoke good English. Room was clean and comfortable enough for a 1 night stay. Ensuite was well maintained. 2 fans provided, no A/C. There is an adjoining restaurant if you don't mind a bit of a wait for food and paying a little more than elsewhere. Order your Tikal packed breakfast well before 21:30 or you'll miss out!


Pretty good hostel in Flores. Helpful staff who were organised transport etc for us. Private room was nice but bring ear plugs as the kitchen downstairs starts working at about 5.30am and is pretty loud. Only downside was no air conditioning as Flores is boiling hot - two fans in the room is a nice


Our stay at this hostel could have been better- BUT this has nothing to do with the hostel itself- it has to do with the city of Flores. During our stay it seemed the city chose to turn off all the running water to the entire island for hours, or the whole day, at a time. This meant, no flushing toilets, not water for washing hands, restaurants ran out of clean dishes, no laundry. Needless to say it made for a hot, stinky mess. Had we had running water reliably, we would have enjoyed it!!!!


Good location and size on the rooms. We even got a little balcony. But, we stayed 3 nights, and although it says that they clean every 2 days they never cleaned our room. We asked for cleaning and they blamed that the water was turned off due to maintenance in the city. We said that they could at least empty the trash-can and refill toiletpaper, but the staff got annoyed and didnt do anything about it. The shower looked homemade, and when using it there was smoke and sparks. A bit scary.

Not a party hostel. Quiet and comfortable. Room was really hot due to lack of A/C. Good location, helpful staff, easy to book transportation and tours at front desk.


Nice hostel in good location staff were very knowledgeable about tours and surrounding area


Just a great hostel in general. It's clean, it's in a good location, the restraunt food is tasty and the staff seem willingly to help with your needs. I am definetly coming back and plan on staying longer.

We were disappointed to find when we arrived that we weren't in the actual hostel, but halfway around the island,we picked the hostel for location cause we are traveling with surfboards&didn't want to lug them far. But when we got there realised it was quite nice, 3 private rooms with shared bathroom/kitchen/living, basically a house that's now a 'hostel', so we were really comfortable. The owner lives there and was a nice guy, explained the erratic water/power is standard on the whole island.


The only negative here is that the room was insanely hot and the wifi didn't really work outside of the common area. But the space is lovely, and the location really can't be beat
