Thanks for your input and it was pleasurably hosting your mixed group.Our chef is British trained chef that worked for the UK Government as a professional chef and a catering manager that cooks for the elite and organisations and we are proud to have a pro like her in our team.We belief that all work and no play makes Jack a doll boy so we made a 24 hour playground for Jack in our Volcano VIEW Terrace Lounge so chiller man,come Jiggy at our Volcano view Terrace lounge all night long.Cheers!!!!!!


That hostel was my best stay during my two and a half week in centralamerica. The owner, a guy from Nigeria, is really nice and fair. He gives recommendations about activities at Lake Atitlan and you can have interesting conversations with him.

Had an amazing stay at Hostel Miguel. My friends had just left and i was feeling a little alone without my friend family. That feeling was immediately abolished once i met Miguel the owner his lovely wife and their son Joseph. They provided such a friendly environment and with a free breakfast freshly cooked, i was more than satisfied with paying $10 for my lovely private room. Coupled with the great location this is a great Hostel/Hotel.

We appreciate your booking and stay with us with your group and we are thankful for your review. Your group's leader is a head chef in UK and we are very pleased our chef was able to cook to your standard. It is our pleasure hosting your group sir.The truth vindicates itself. Regards, thank you and Cheers!.


We stayed there for 4 nights. The room was ok but not big enough for 4 persons. The breakfast was nice, we had different choices and the wife of the hostel owner prepared it with love. Even though we were the only guests over there it took more than half an hour to prepare the food. The staff was ok if they were at the hostel, if we would have lost the key we wouldn't have been able to get in. Beside of that the shower had hot water, really hot water - what is worse than cold water.

Thanks for your personal opinion but it would be good for the public to also know that you added more nights in the same room and hostel after you were due for checkout,why add more nights if the product in general was not good enough for you?.People's review is a direct reflection of whom they are and it is good for a good judge to listen to both sides of a matter before making a conscise and a correct decison.Cheers!


The family running the hostel was lovely, and cooked a good breakfast. Dorms rooms were small but beds were comfy. Private rooms were nice. Doorbell was never answered so always remember keys. Pretty much no social scence when we were there unfortunately.

Thanks for your opinion,If door bells are never answered then we wonder who let you into the hostel when you checked in,the bell you heard unanswered is not ours so its good to be sure before posting a comment and we also give you a key after checking,what more can we give? social scene would mean people socializing and socializing could be equated to vibes which means transmitting and receiving interactions from people in an environment,so if you don't receive it means you did not transmit any


The owner and his family are great and very nice people who deeply care about their guests, the hostel has a beautiful rooftop with hamocks!


Price is very good and breakfast is included and tasteful
