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 10Q 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 don’t normally stay at party hostels but we liked it here! Staff and volunteers super friendly and welcoming. No pressure to participate and they go out to let everyone sleep. Would stay here again just for the beds. INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE!!!! Short walk to the boats and cheap food options.

    Amazing hostel staff and very clean. Was greeted with multiple free beers upon arrival. Highly recommend the private rooms. What more can you ask for? I will be staying here again when I return.

    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.

    If you are into heavy partying you might like this hostel. For me, it was too much. Also, there was a lot of clutter and trash, particularly at the entrance and on the terrace. The hot water doesn't work sometimes. The positives are that it is easy to meet people, and the location is great.

    There is one door that leads into the building that is opened by the person at the front desk. They let everyone in, and there are no locks on the room doors. Several times while I was there no one was at the desk or it was impossible to get their attention away from the bar. In addition, most of the time the water did not work, and especially not the hot water. In addition, it is also poorly managed. The second night my room was moved without warning due to pre scheduled maintenance.
