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.

    WE LOVE DREAMBOAT! Would 1000% recommend Dreamboat to anyone traveling to the lake! Pana is a great location, it’s so easy to explore the other villages with only a short walk to the boats. The whole team at Dreamboat is amazing, they are very helpful with everything! As soon as you walk in you are made to feel like you’re apart of the family. The owners Mitch and Luke are awesome! Big shout out to our favourite Aussie volunteer, Georgia, you made our stay so fun! Dreamboat, we will be back!!!

    Had the best time at this hostel. I came during rainy season and the staff are just absolutely top notch. Mitch, one of the owners is amazing and really makes you feel welcomed. The staff are so informative and help you out with tips and booking shuttles/excursions. I quickly realized I made a mistake by staying in San Pedro for two nights before coming here. Would definitely come back! Thank you Dreamhouse!

    This place has a really social "family" vibe so is fantastic to meet other travelers and feel included. They have something on everyday to participate in. Beds are comfy and the bar closes early enough to get a good night sleep. Having water and a kitchen was great and always had steaming hot water. Highly recommended. I'll be back.

    Excellent hostel with a good social roof terrace/bar and friendly owner. One very minor improvement would be more drinking water available.

    Best hostel I stayed at on the lake. Social, friendly atmosphere, great common area to bring people together, delicious food, decent bathrooms, nice showers, and comfy beds. They empty the common area at 11pm so you can get some shut eye. Stay here in Pana.

    I would only recommend the hostel if you are into young Americans / Australians screaming everywhere and partying. Staff was very helpful and dorm rooms quite nice. Bathrooms could be much cleaner.

    For the price wouldn’t recommend. Cleanliness wasn’t great and no hot showers! Expect lots of noise both at night and early morning.
