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 on our 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.

    Dreamboat is a very fun hostel in Panajachel. Friendly and helpful staff, comfy beds, great showers, nice terrace to hang out on. They have “family meals” in the evening for a good price, these are a great opportunity to get to know other hostel-goers or the sweet staff members! Stay at Dreamboat for a unique and fun hostel experience!

    Nice place. Comfy beds. A bit loud in the night. Definitely geared towards the social side - they had a bunch of fun activities you could do each day. Very easy location in Pana.

    Great place to stay, felt welcomed from the very beginning, thou I wasnt very sure about staying after reading some reviews. Place is clean, could do with some fans in the room I stayed in as the window could not open fully for safety reasons. Could also do with more showers. Has a great space to mingle and socialize or just sit and chill out. No breakfast included, thou has a good breakfast menu at an additional cost. I definitely would stay again.

    Security isn’t the best since there are no locks on the doors and they’ll buzz anyone in. Rooms do have lockers though. Bed sagged in the middle as if a very overweight person had once slept in it and the mattress conformed to their shape. It was very uncomfortable. Location is good, close to lake.

    No communication regarding change of rooms from a 4 bed dorm to a 6 bed dorm. An extra bunk was added to a tiny four bed dorm. No room to put belongings. Bins overflowing. Wet sheet when arrived. Food went missing from the fridge although my name and date on it. upgraded to a private room. Very dusty and didn't feel clean.
