    Great little hostel with a very friendly staff. There is a dock right outside so it’s very easy to get all around the lake. Good restaurant and the rooms were quite clean. There was also some great street food nearby. It’s definitely a more kicked back place, so I recommend going to Los Amigos for the party. Also the laundry was a little steep so if your on a budget you should shop around. I really did like this place though.

    The hostel was nice. The staff was friendly, and they were fast to pick us up whenever we called about the boat. If you do not have data/a Guatemalan SIM card for your phone, I recommend buying one before arriving, as you have to call to get them to pick you up via boat from Flores. I think they must use a solar water heater for the showers, since it seems like there was only hot water during the day. The room was clean.

    Great spot, also has a restaurant. Just know that there are only two bathrooms so be prepared to wait especially if you need to shower. The music was playing a normal amount for having a bar nearby but it didn't affect my sleep at all. No curtains on the bed.

    Cute little hostel in San Miguel, friendly staff, the hostel is quiet. The beds are good and the rooms have AC. The boat across the lake is only 2 mins to get to Isla flores however if your out partying you’d need to make sure you get a boat back as they don’t run all night. Would stay here again!

    A cute lil hostel by the water's edge on the other side of the lake from Flores. The deck on the water has a great view and is top noch for sun bathing and jumping into the water. Dorm room was ok and wifi worked without issues. A quiet, calm place for a couple of nights and for exploring the San Miguel side. Unfortunately due to getting there being a bit of a hassle, it was very quiet so lacking in atmosphere and socialising. You won't get there past 11 pm from Flores.

    I don’t like having to take a boat to go to town and back, but they were very flexible about it. I upgraded from a dorm to a private room because my dorm mates were very loud, but the private room was great. Very clean, comfortable bed.

    Worst nights sleep ever because the AC wasn’t on, and an alarm was ringing between 3-4:30am, turns out it was a staff members who was sleeping in the hallway naked, he was drunk and was supposed to take a friend on a sunrise tour, and she missed it because of him! The staff failed to mention what we needed for the Tikal tour It’s an all round quiet hostel but it’s clean and well kept

    couldnt wake up the staff member on duty this morning and therefore missed my flight. His alarm was going off on his phone for about 30 minutes and i tried nudging him to wake him up, without any success. I had to find another boat to take me across and due to that i landed up missing my flight and having to book a new one, not ideal. The private room was decent, at the back of the house, so no view and a window with a wall directly behind it. Nice area to stay if you want to be home before 11pm

    The issue is if you want to spend time in Flores, you are relying on them to boat you there and back. My first night I got dropped off in Flores and told to meet in the same spot. I called to get picked up and no one came. When I called again they said they were waiting there for me. Apparently in a different spot. They originally said there were no more boats for the night (it was 9:15), then they said it was going to cost $30Q. Eventually they came, I checked out the next day.
