    I absolutely loved this gem of a place. It is in the perfect setting in Bacalar, right on the lake. The bathroom area was surprisingly clean, considering it is outdoors. The staff was very hospitable and accommodating. Breakfast is included, and was a made to order platter of scrambled eggs and veggies, and black beans, with tortilla and fruit. Would definitely come back here if given the opportunity.

    Quiet vibe but a good, friendly atmosphere. Not a party site, most people were early to rise. Very helpful staff and there are plenty of activities to rent from here. Excellent snacks at their bar. Showers are cold, wifi only available in the bar area. Property has access to the lagoon with a dock where they launch activities. Clean part of the lagoon that’s good to swim from. Overall great stay and you get what you pay for.

    Friendly staff, easy check in and they allowed us to hang around and use the facilities after check out as we had a night bus. Nice private jetty on the laguna with chairs and a hammock, we rented kayaks here for $100 per person per hour and had a nice day out visiting the cenotes etc. We slept in the tents which were spacious and clear and the beds inside were comfortable, facilities nice and clean, drinking water available and decent wifi in the bar.

    A truly 'magic' location right by the lake, with sun loungers and chairs on the jetty. The dorm was tightly packed with beds, but the bed was comfortable and each one had two shelves and a private fan. There was also a little kitchen and fridge attached to the dorm which was great. Breakfast was tasty; tortillas, eggs, frijoles and fruit. Hot showers too! Most of the staff don't speak any English, which made things a little bit difficult, but the ones who did were very friendly and helpful.

    Great place to stay in Bacalar! I had the best time of my life here. Being so close to the lagoon is wonderful, especially in the night were you can lay on beds and watch the night sky. This place is magic!

    What a spot! If you intend to go to Bacalar just go to this hostel! The place is gorgeous with your own pontoon and private access to the lagune. We stayed in a dorm room which ended up being a little home with its own kitchen and living room. Very very chilled and not too expensive. We first booked 3 nights and ended up staying 10 days. We also took sailing classes there which was amazing.

    In general a good hostel with a private jetty. With the amount of staff they have you'd expect better cleanliness especially the bathrooms. In the room itself the beds are very close to each other with very small space in between. Mosquito nets available however many holes on them. Good breakfast, nice bar. Very hot water. Slightly overpriced however Bacalar isn't cheap so I guess it's fine.

    Kind of out of the way but was right off the waters edge which was absolutely stunning. I stayed in the dorms and people were in a room above the dorms stomping around all night until I had to tell them to stop. Know your English before arriving most do not speak English
