    Ciao Cacao has a very friendly staff and welcoming environment. They worked with our plans and helped us book our trip to Tikal. The only downsides are an occasional wait for the bathroom or shower as there is only one of each and a thin ceiling in the private room which means you can hear some of the noise from the dorm rooms above you. Thanks for providing us a great stay in Flores!

    Super cute hostel in Flores. We came in very early (before 8am) since we took a night bus from Antigua, we couldn't check in but got a Code to enter the hostel yard and even got to take a quick nap in one of their many hammocks before taking off to explore Tikal. The staff was super nice and helpful and the set up of the hostel very cute. Overall I really enjoyed the atmosphere at Ciao Cacao!

    This hostel was wonderful! Everyone there was incredibly kind, helpful, talented and interesting!! The hostel was very accommodating and helped me organize my trip to Tikal as well as to Antigua, and they even helped me with some passport/immigration issues I had. I would recommend this hostel to backpackers (solo or friends) looking for a relaxing place to stay. I ended up extending my stay twice, and I would definitely stay there again!

    Everything was great! The only security issue is that the lockers are quite small. The staff are 20/10. They are almost strive about helping you navigate the area and move onward without getting fleased by taxis or others. They place is super chill, and the hammocks and garden are great for relaxing. A really great staff who enjoy working there,and it shows, making your stay all the better.

    The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful! Great location on the island of Flores and delicious banana bread. The only thing I would change is having more than one toilet and one shower. I often had to wait in line to use one or the other.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Ciao Cacao! The owners are so friendly & helpful with any queries you have. They booked tours to Tikal & Yaxha for me & gave me tips on where to go next! The hostel has a really chill vibe, is super clean and the garden is super beautiful - would have loved to spend some more time there! The hostel only hosts a few people, which I enjoyed. It’s quiet and relaxed. Only negative point for me was that there was only 1 toilet & 1 shower, so sometimes you have to wait..

    Really sweet hostel, with a communal living feel to it. It was quiet while I was there, not sure how easy it would be to meet people if you wanted but it’s the perfect spot to chill for a while. The hammocks are nice but if they’re busy or you want to socialise you’ll have to sit less comfortably. Only one toilet and one shower, so a bit of a queue forms which can be annoying but I believe they’re working on fixing that.

    Good hostel and nice location. Only downfall is that there was one shower and toilet between 9 bed dorm. Also many cats in the night scrapping outside.
