Property Description

Welcome to Dreamboat! We are a fun, laidback, social hostel - hidden right in the heart of Panajachel, Lake Atitlan. Our number one priority is to make sure our guests have a fantastic time in a unique setting, with friendly people.

We run daily activities - from beer pong tournaments to tienda crawls. Beersbie competitions to Wizard Stick nights. Some nights we’ll cook a cheap family-style dinner - or we can give you our top recommendations for delicious eats around town. Want to experience Pana’s nightlife? Once our bar closes, we’ll take you out to some of our favorite spots to keep drinking and dancing.

We do our best to go the extra mile to make sure that everyone is included in all of our wacky activities. We’re firm believers that putting the phones away, stepping outside of our comfort zones, and making new friends will result in an unforgettable trip. Not to mention, we have the cheapest hostel bar in Guatemala, staffed with the friendliest people and stocked with all of your favorite drinks. It’s almost too good to be true!

If that doesn’t sound awesome enough - we also have a large open-air common room/bar area with stunning views of the lake and a rooftop terrace where you can lounge around in the sun and take in those majestic mountains. Want to cook your own food? We have a fantastic, fully equipped kitchen that you are more than welcome to use. We also want you to feel refreshed and ready to explore - so we made sure we have comfy mattresses, hot gas showers, free filtered water & fresh coffee every morning.

We’re located in the perfect spot for you to explore the amazing town of Panajachel. Walk out the door and check out all of the handmade Guatemalan clothing and textiles lining the street, grab some delicious street food, or grab some fresh produce from the local market. More interested in thrill-seeking activities? You can paraglide over the lake - or check out the massive nature reserve that has zip-lining, waterfalls, monkeys, and even a butterfly enclosure. We’re located just a few steps away from the waterfront, where you can watch the sunset over our 3 beloved volcanos - or you can easily catch a boat to any of the other towns on the lake!

If you want to make plans for your next travel destination, we have fast WIFI, shuttle services, and a bunch of recommendations to give you.

    Great place to stay. Awesome owners and staff!! We only stayed one night here after a week in San Pedro - actually wished we’d stayed in Pana and dreamboat for a bit longer, it’s a cool town and a great hostel. Great atmosphere. Good bar. Clean. Nice room. Would definitely recommend.

    Just stayed one night at dreamboat as needed to be in Pana for an early shuttle but wished we’d been able to stay longer! The staff are so welcoming and friendly and run activities every day if people are interested. They even took us to their favourite cocktail place! There’s use of a large kitchen but you can also opt in for a cheap, yummy dinner cooked by their chef. Dorms are clean, with lockers for secure storage of belongings. Would really recommend staying here while visiting the lake!

    The perfect hostel- lovely social space, amazing kitchen, accommodating and friendly staff and very nice social atmosphere. We were lucky enough to be there for their 2nd birthday, and had a lot of fun. Couldn’t recommend this hostel enough.

    Great hostel in Panajachel! If we had stayed in Panajachel for the entire time on the lake we would have stayed here. Super friendly and helpful staff, clean dorm and facilities. Heard the breakfast was great too!

    Great hostel in general and the staff are awesome and friendly people. The only negative which was a big one for me was that it was almost impossible to consistently connect to the wifi. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who's a digital nomad and needs internet to work

    The hostel is basic and seems to have a lot of long term residents who have taken over the common area. The WiFi is very weak outside of the common area. Hot showers and free filtered water with optional breakfast and dinner. In my opinion the town is over touristed and full of pushy sellers. We were glad to be leaving. We should have stayed longer in Antigua!
