Property Description

Welcome to Casa Felipe San Pedro De Laguna

The little eco-hostel under the shadow of the San Pedro Volcano. Here we strive to provide a relaxing experience for our guests and while keeping our environmental impact low. Please join us on your next holiday in our relaxing and spacious garden full of fruit trees, herbs, and exotic plants. To implement our ecological beliefs we designed and built a water filtration system that uses plants and volcanic rock to clean water for reuse so that our beautiful lake stays clean.

1.Building Materials
The dormitories and private rooms are made of adobe ( dirt mixed with other organic materials) which is thermic, and free of toxic cement elements.
Community (hang-out) area is made of locally sourced bamboo that in 4-6 years grows back to its normal adult size.

2. Organic Cleaning Products
Our Green cleaning products are 100% homemade. Made of baking soda, peroxide, sometimes alcohol, eucalyptus, clove, lemon plant. Our soap contains no phosphorus.

3. Biodigestor
The biodigestor is designed to clean the sewage water. Our absorption well is made of pure clay which makes filtering highly effective. This information and construction is validated by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of Guatemala.

4. Biofilter
The biofilters are made of pebbles, sand, earthy materials, 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 contaminates the lake. Our future project for gray water, which will be used for irrigation of edible plants and sanitary hand water.

    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.

    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.
