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.

    Good location. Very chill vibe with bar upstairs. Nightly games to get everyone involved. Owners ensure everyone feels involved if they want to be to meet others. Great base spot with location to do boat travel or bars and restaurants.

    Absolutely loved this hostel. It’s a little bit rambunctious if you’re looking for a quiet place but they have great food, drinks, vibes, and events up on the rooftop and the pool is an added bonus. I met Mitch, the owner, when I arrived sick, and he was so kind to me and SO accommodating. The whole staff was so helpful and responsive. The only negative to the whole place was that the kitchen is very tiny so you’d have a hard time sharing it or would have to wait, but it’s easy&cheap to order!

    Nice hostel! The only cons to mention are on the one hand the rooms are poorly soundproofed, therefore it is nearly impossible to sleep before 11pm, when the rooftop bar is closed and everyone is gone out. And on the other hand the internet is not the very best, it doesn’t reaches to the balconies, the places with the most privacy.

    Definitely a party hostel, all the staff are super friendly and welcoming. We were tired so we didn’t join in but it was quiet after 11 (although no one went out in our room). There was a nice view from the rooftop, the breakfast was a decent price, and they had large storage lockers. Maybe not the best vibe for chill travellers but the location was convenient and good value for the price.

    We loved our stay at this hostel! The staff was so sweet and helpful with everything! They have quiet time after 10 pm (which they actually kept their promise of), so you could go to sleep without being disturbed. The only downside was the size and the facilities of the kitchen. Otherwise absolutely amazing stay!
