Property Description

What do you look for in a hostel?

Imagine you walk into a hostel and someone comes over to you, shakes your hand and introduces you to a table filled with people that are actually talking to 1 another. Then you have a look at the bar prices and see its 15Q Brahva's all day everyday. You sit down with a beer in hand and enjoy the people on that tables company over a 30Q family-style hostel dinner, again everybody seems to be actually talking to 1 another.

There's a guy with bleach in his hair creating an atmosphere that has everybody smiling, laughing & once again talking to each other. You learn a lot of new ways how to have a fun time with new people. The next thing you know its time to head out at 10:30pm cause there are some that want to go out but there are some that want to sleep as well. The night is a funny 1 because you head out as 1 big group and dance the night away.

When you wake up in the morning the shower is 1 of the best on your trip through Central America. You head to the kitchen, grab yourself a free coffee & enjoy the view from the common room or rooftop terrace. 1 of the guys with bleach in his hair is asking you how did you sleep? You tell him the mattress was absolutely amazing and you slept like a log. How funny was last night!? He replies with 'this is what we do'.

We are a social hostel that make it easy for you to meet other people. Yet there is so much more that we care about. Make sure you come meet Luke, Gunny, Pampa, Mitch & the Dreamboat Team. You will not be disappointed.

    We only stayed for 1 night but everything was well managed. The staff would come and hang out with whoever was in the common area at any time. They gave great recommendations om things to do and whatnot. Room was clean, atmosphere was chill. Would recommend for anyone looking for a social stay.

    Absolutely loved my short stay here- the staff were immediately very welcoming and couldn’t do enough for you. The facilities were clean, they have a roof with some great views, and it is very secure with a locking gate. The best part though is the atmosphere- the staff welcomed all the guests to their party and gave us all a great night! Overall a very fun and relaxing experience! Would definitely recommend!

    I’ve never written a review but this place is out of this world that I had to. Within a night you feel like part of the family; the guys who work there are fun, outgoing, and friendly to every single backpacker. The electricity went out one night due to a large storm and the volunteers brought out candles and we drank, sang, danced, and played beer pong in the candle lit lobby. Then we went to an incredible bar, Simonetta, as a group. The drinks were the best I've ever had!! Can’t miss this gem.

    Great location and easy to book trips from the hostel. The staff are amazing - they are friendly, informative, helpful, organise activities and even helped get me find medication when I was sick. The best hostel is Panajachel and highly recommended.

    Central location in Panajachel. Really friendly and welcoming staff and price for a 4 bed dorm is great. Everything seemed pretty clean and comfortable. Was slightly weird to have so many staff/volunteers for just a few guests, but that seemed to be the trend with low season. Overall great place to stay!

    Definitely a party hostel, but great vibes if that’s your jam! Dorms and bathrooms were fabulous, and they have a kitchen and free filtered water! Great for solo travellers as you’re guaranteed to make friends!

    This hostel is a party hostel. We only stayed one night but the common area wasn't that nice and it quickly got filled with smoke from cigarettes. The staff were nice though and dorms fine as well. The location is also good.
