Property Description

El Muro offers tranquil views of the jungle,hearty food from our family style restaurant and a full service bar. If you like adventure we have a great rage of nice tours that you can book upon arrival. Our comfortable rooms boast private bathrooms with showers, ranging from six bed dorms to private suites. The covered terrace offers comfortable seating with a beautiful outlook on the valley (we have the best views in Lanquin) and is the perfect place to enjoy a drink with friends old and new. Happy hour is daily from 4pm - 8 pm, and you can connect to our 24 WiFi!

El Muro is steps from the shuttle drop-off site providing the convenience of a bustling little town full of locals and tradition, make sure to check out the farmers market every Thursday and Monday.

Spirit of adventure? Enjoy a relaxing tubing experience on the pristine Lanquin River! You’ll float between the jungle covered banks, seeing sights that just aren’t possible from any other vantage point. Explore Lanquin's bat caves! Only a short tuk tuk ride from our Hostal, you’ll explore a few of the incredible chambers within the caves and see the bats’ habitat up close. At dusk, watch as millions of bats fly out in search of their evening meal. Take our Extreme tour of Semuc Champey! You’ll get a full tour (all 8 pools!) of Semuc Champey, hike to El Mirador for stunning photo ops, tubing and exploring the water caves by candle light. (Talk to us when you arrive to book your tour for the next day)

Te Gusta Fiesta? Our pub/bar is always happening, any night of the week and a favorite hang out for some of the locals! You will enjoy a 'fam jam' type of atmosphere in a relaxed and vibrant space where you can kick back in a hammock with a beer or get the party started with El Muro's famous 'giant jenga' drinking game.

We are a group of outgoing, life-loving people who are excited to welcome you to the beautiful town of Lanquin!

    Superb

    We met Anna in Belize who recommended this hostel and it did not disappoint. Just the right mix of chilling/partying and the Semuc Champey tour organised by the hostel is fantastic. Anna was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed and made our stay even better than we hoped. Thanks so much!

    Good beds and room, good location. There is some tours operating from the hostel, they are very expensive compared to all other tours in town! There is no water to drink and the breakfast is not included and you cannot bring your own food. Be sure how much you have to pay for your room, the guy behind the desk tried to overcharge us 70 quezales. Just saying.

    No AC, super nosiy fan that kept us up. Musty, smelly room and bugs everywhere which is to be expected but no mosquito net. Cockroaches, a massive one even landed on us as we were sat at the bar. No use of kitchen, and only breakfast available at an additional cost. Nice view but building works happening which is noisy. Helpful and friendly staff.

    Did not enjoy my stay here. There is a sign saying they lock the doors at 11 and are not opened until 6am, so guest can not leave or enter during this time. However one night they locked the doors at 10.30pm, leaving 5 quest stranded outside. A staff member was also rude and unprofessional to guest's, making my stay here very uncomfortable. Any food from outside the hostel is also unwelcomed. Apart from that the meals were nice and bed were very comfortable!
