Property Description

Welcome to Casa Felipe San Pedro la Laguna after a renovation!

It´s a fresh beginning! We´ve just finished renovation in Casa Felipe to improve each aspect of your stay. From now on you can be sure that spending time here will be a pure pleasure.
We take perfect care not only of our guest but also the environment (you can read more about it below). Here you can take a deep breath relaxing in our spacious garden full of fruit trees, herbs and exotic plants.

Although the space has been renovated, we still remain an ecologically friendly hostel. Now a days the building remains with certain modifications. We maintain these ecological tendencies by keeping the same hygiene practices and its septic system to filtrate the water. Those efforts have the purpose of keeping LAKE ATITLAN CLEAN. Now Casa Felipe is able to receive up to 35 guests at the time. There is boat rides arriving from Panajachel every 20 minutes and plenty of buses arriving from the capital city or Xela. Antigua Guatemala also offers different shuttle companies coming this way on a daily basis.


Accommodation and facilities
We offer 5 private rooms and 3 dorms to get rest after your journey. In the large fully equipped kitchen you find everything you need to feel like home and prepare your own meals. Each day we offer free coffee for our guests and a possibility to try a delicious homemade hot supper. Once you taste it you love it! In the evening there is a time to socialize with other guest playing billiard or sipping colorful drinks served straight from the Guatemalan designed bamboo bar.

Area
Casa Felipe San Pedro la Laguna is located in a calm area with fast access to the lake, boats and restaurants. In 5 minutes you can hit the most party area with bustling places with live music almost each evening. Another 5 minutes and you find the colorful local market with tasty fruit, fresh vegetables and local vibe.

Activities
You will never get bored here. No doubt! Hiking the San Pedro volcano, watching the sunrise on the top of Indian Nose, horse riding to explore coffee plantation or kayaking to enjoy the beauty of Lake Atitlan - these are only few examples of spending unforgettable time in San Pedro La Laguna.

What makes hostel Casa Felipe ecological? (Silver medal as a Green Leader by Tripadvisor)

1.Building materials
The dormitories and the private rooms are made of adobe (type of dirt mixed with other organic materials) which is thermic, free of toxic cement elements. Besides our friendzone living room is made of bamboo which is a renewable material that in 4-6 years grows back to its normal adult plan size.

2.Mattresses and pillows
Our mattresses and pillows are 100% biodegradable since they are made of rustic cotton. They keep the body temperature and at the end of their usage cycle in about 6 month they turn into earth material.

3.Organic cleaning products
Our Green cleaning products are 100% homemade. Their base are baking soda, peroxide, sometimes alcohol, eucalyptus, clove, lemon plant etc. The soap that we use is phosphorus free.

4.Biodigestor
The biodigestor is designed to clean the sewage water. Our absorption well is made of pure clay which makes filtering highly effective and the water from there after traveling 200 m to the lake Atitlan does not contaminate it. This information and construction is validated by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of Guatemala.

5.Biofilter
The biofilters are made of pebbles, sand, some earthy materials and is enhanced with some semi-aquatic and aquatic plants that eliminate phosphorus, nitrogen and other harmful elements from the water. Those chemicals are the main cause of cyanobacteria that usually contaminates the lake. There are two biofilters, one is for sewage water, which is used as penultimate filtration after the expulsion of the biodigester. The second one is the future project for gray water, which will be creating a deposit of clean water that will serve for irrigation of inedible plants and sanitary water.

6. Plants and trees
The air quality is different in the hostel thanks to the special air purifying plants and trees in our large inner garden. It also provides herbs for cooking and medicinal purposes.

7. Light Bulbs and drinking water
Every single light bulb is LED type which provides better energy saving options. Moreover, we provide free drinking water for our guests who can fill out their portable bottles any time and therefore reduce their carbon footprint. View House Rules

    Superb

    Great hostel if you’re staying in San Pedro and you want to be away from the noise. It’s still close to the center with a short walk but it’s nice and quiet. The staff are super nice and will help with any information about the area. There is giant lockers for your bags and the outside common area is massive. 10/10 from me.

    This hostel is fantastic! It's ideal for anyone who is looking to come to San Pedro to simply relax (probably not ideal for those who like to party hard!). The staff are incredibly friendly, and the rooms are spacious with lots of plug outlets and space to store your luggage underneath the beds. The only slight downside is the distance it is from the dock (around 12 minutes walking uphill), but you can always get a tuk tuk or just enjoy the walk!

    The owner was very accommodating!! Even though I spoke very un poco Spanish he made sure I had everything I need. Make sure to bring bus spray and mosquito net as they will eat you alive at night. Bonus for warm showers. Good atmosphere to meet other travelers.

    I stayed at this hostel for a couple of nights and I had no problems . It was very quiet while I was there but at was fine by me. No loud music forced upon us by the hostel staff which so often drives me up the wall. The volunteers were sweet thanks guys and the local indigenous woman was sweet too.

    I ended up staying here twice. The hostel is basic but really welcoming. Plus is has all the facilities you need - kitchen, outdoor areas, pool table etc. It’s an eco friendly hostel, and has lots of plants and trees in the outdoor area, so it gives it a tranquil feeling. But a word of warning, bring your mosquito spray, they are bad! Do recommend staying here!

    This hostel is good for what you pay. There isn’t a good atmosphere and it is pretty dead, but if you’re looking for a place to relax then this is it! Kitchen is lovely and staff are really helpful. However the floors in the dorms were dirty and there are many bugs (especially at night) as there are gaps in the ceilings.

    Very Good

    I stayed there for one night. It was definitely basic, but the price was low so I was fine with the hostel. The beds were surprisingly hard and uncomfortable, however. The guy who worked there came out and checked when we entered after partying late one friday night, which I appreciated that he checked if people are bringing others in, but that guy made both me and my friend (who is also female) uncomfortable. He was always gaping at us as we walked around the hostel, in the middle of the night.

    We were the only people in the hostel! Even at one point the worker left. Although the hostel might be nice if there were other people we didn't really enjoy our stay. Their kitchen was really good! And the outside sitting area was fine. There is a big bug problem (spiders, moscitos and other) that can be treated, not necessarily eliminated because it is very green, but treated noon the less

    Awful experience. Hostel is a long way out of town at the top of a steep hill. Place was deserted, had to knock for 10mins before someone came to let me in. Room was dirty and did not look like the photos. Also there was dog sh*t outside my room, which had I checked in at night I would have walked through. Decided to shelve it and went to Hostel Fe instead.
