    This place was fantastic! I loved the environment friendly focus with solar, compost, garden-fresh food, and local goods for purchase. It is quiet, relaxing, and well-kept. Plus hot showers!

    Perfect place to relax, beautiful ecological place, with amazing vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Try the banana ginger coconut soup. You are surrounded by trees and flowers. Beautiful and clean wooden accommodations all placed in their own little separate area. Great beds. Hot water showers which is not so common in the area. Clean bathrooms ( its eco - so they are compost, but they are SO clean and taken care of). The staff are lovely and friendly and helpful. Fantastic place, highly recommended.

    A calming environment great for reflection and relaxation. We took advantage of their Sunday sauna deal (Q10 for sauna and pizza), which was a great opportunity to meet some locals. We also organized an amazing sunrise hike with the help of the staff, which turned out to be amazing! I also loved their all vegetarian menu, which is cooked fresh when you order! Overall great stay, would recommend to others looking for a relaxed atmosphere

    Charming property located on the outskirts of town. Basic but spacious dorm. Great hot showers. Few areas for sitting or socializing. Owner is helpful and knowledgeable when there. Unfortunately, she was not there on my first day and the staff available did not speak much English. However, they were very pleasant and tried their best with my basic Spanish.

    Stayed at Mayachik in Jan 2020 with my husband and adult daughter. Lodge was like a large cabin, with electricity and shower and a compost toilet. But it did not smell cabin was comfortable and large. Would have been nice to have a electric tea kettle....but they offer a self serve kitchen, pretty rustic, think camping! Mayachik also has a great vegetarian restaurant, everything is homemade, delicious! You can easily walk to town day or night, to shop or to a cafe, very safe. Great staff!!

    The hostel has a lovely setting removed from town amongst fruit trees and a forest. This isn’t the hostel’s fault, but chickens crowing and dogs barking woke me up at times throughout the night — ear plugs recommended. Showers were hot, mattress was alright, and the ambiance of this place was excellent, with hammocks and swings throughout the property. Staff were nice but not excessively devoted to customer service. It’s a good place to come to get away from the world and unwind for a while.

    Nice place a little outside of town. If you want to explore the lake and all the different towns, not sure I'd recommend here but if you want a day or 2 away from the hustle, then this is your place.

    I loved this place. I needed somewhere to go to relax and get away and this was exactly what I needed. Great food options in the restaurant, a big yoga platform, a spot to cook your own food if you didn’t want to buy from the restaurant and a sauna too. It was a great relaxed vibe and I’m happy to have been. I would definitely recommend and would go back too the next time I go to San Jan. Also it’s a 10 minute walk to the market to buy fruit and veg and then another 5 to the boat dock !

    Very Good

    It's a cool place. If you're looking to be away from everything it's in the ideal location. It's really quite, but at night it can be loud because of barking dogs. If you're a light sleeper definitely bring ear plugs. The shower was amazing to be fair! It was nice to have vegan food at the restaurant, which was good. Easy access to San Pedro also.
