Nice place, next to the lake, beautiful view, but too many gringos! In the village almost no possibilities to have breakfast/dinner, so you are kind of obliged to eat there. Dinner very expensive (60Q); at comedor you pay 25Q! Staff didn't know a lot about what you can do there and seemed annoyed by my questions. It is tricky to get the right boat from panajachel, there are 2 docks in pana, don't take main one who go to san pedro (will charge you 25 instead of 10Q!), take smaller one more north

Location is great. Rooms comfy and clean - as long as you can keep the dogs out. Take snacks as food options are limited. Entertainment after dinner is good but needs group interaction so don't be shy. Staff are great, knowledgeable for a bunch of foreigners. Highlights would be the view, taco night and chatting with mama iguana. Awesome lady for 'an oldie'. Thanks for a great few days

Good atmosphere. Friendly staff. Prices for staying are reasonable. However there aren't cheaper places to eat out and the kitchen closes for guests at 15:00 you have no option but to fork out for breakfast and dinner which cost anywhere near G 100.

One of my favorite hostels in Guatemala! No wifi was actually a blessing as it forced everyone to unplug and actually mingle with each other. The family dinners were also great and made for a very inclusive and communal atmosphere. The location is right on the water and the view of the lake and volcanoes is stunning. Everything was very lush and beautiful. Very relaxing and tranquil. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions about the area.

For a hostel right on the lake it was well priced, super clean, and probably one of the more relaxing hostels around the lake. I liked the library and the dorms were comfortable. But there was no kitchen and most people end up paying 60Q for dinner each night. The meals was quite good and very filling but the last few nights I made dinner on my own which was tricky without a kitchen but saved some money. In all it was a nice place, I would go back for sure but, keep in mind, nothing is included.

Great spot. Nice and secluded. Private rooms are nice and spacious. Communal meal was delicious and very sociable. The owner and her bus an are particularly nice. Only drawback; no wifi!

Clean room with a really pretty view of the lake, also not a bad price for the room. Some of the staff were super helpful and friendly while some of the others had little knowledge of the lake and weren't too nice. Also, not many places to eat around, and dinner can be quite pricey . Not somewhere to go id say if you're on a tight budget .
