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.

    Fantastic Hostel!🤙 We were tired and weary upon arrival and were greeted by the hostel owner offering us shots dressed only in a cape, chain and leopard-print speedos. This introduction set the tone for the establishment. Unlike some other party hostels the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, no was taken as an answer for a beer bong request. Roof top pool and bar were unreal. Best selling point was the staff, so personable and friendly felt like I knew them for years. Suggestion: Room keys.

    I loved everything about this hostel, but mainly staff who made my stay. All of them tried to help beyond expectation(where to find ATM, prices, places to eat, trips)...afternoon most of them joined for social activities, knew all guests by name. Rooms - we didn't have any key from room or entrance, but to enter the hotel, staff member needed to open door for you, so I felt all my belongings were safe Location - right at the main street, next to the lake

    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.

    Very Good

    30 Apr 2021
    The staff were exceptional. They go above and beyond to make guests feel welcome and to make the atmosphere fun! The rooms, however, are not very good. I stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm and there are no fans or windows so even though it was cool at night the room was quite hot. The shower did not drain great, the toilet back was open, and not all of the beds had outlets near them. The WiFi was ok. The bar area was nice to hangout by. This is definitely a party hostel so you will find a party!

    Very Good

    04 May 2021
    The staff was really cool, the location is perfect! Very secure place. The rooftop area is nice. My biggest complaint is the bathroom situation. There absolutely needs to be another shower option outside of the shared dorm rooms because when it’s a full house it’s really annoying to have only one one shower between 6 people. Also the bathrooms could be a bit cleaner. But overall good hostel and really cheap
