    Beautiful place, right on the water so it’s perfect for relaxing and swimming. Five mins from the main town and getting the boat to it is easy (and fun) as it runs all the time, is super responsive and the boat driver speaks perfect English. It’s family run and everyone is attentive. Overall a really nice place, thoroughly recommend it and would definitely come back.

    Lovely hostel - they offered a free shuttle from their hostel across the lake to Flores which was ideal and saved us a lot of money on boats! So close to shops and street food; rooms and balcony were lovely and spacious! Only issue is, there was no kitchen which my friends and I struggled with as we love to cook while travelling. Also, we hadn’t moved our bags by 11am and so had to pay for an extra night even though we actually left - was annoying, so just to warn you,as they didn’t tell us!

    Hostal Casa de Grethel is a lovely place across the lake from the island Flores. The restaurant is reasonably priced and has cheap breakfasts, and the dorms are very spacious and clean, not to mention the hot water and air conditioning was a nice touch. There is a free boat across the lake whenever you need from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, and later than that you have to pay 10 Q. The owner is amazing, caring to our every need, as well as the staff. We stayed there for a week and would 100% stay again!

    Casa de Grethel was the perfect place to relax after our day of traveling from Belize. The property is across from Flores island and has amazing views of the lake and allows for ultimate relaxation. You can lounge on the dock or swim in the lake and they provide free boat rides during the day if you want to hangout at the island. Food was amazing and the private room was large and clean with AC. Highly recommend!

    I highly recommend this hostel! It was so lovely to arrive to a warm greeting by the family, a clean dorm, towel included, and a giant licuado and delicious meal at their reasonably-priced restaurant. It's away from the noise and bustle of the town, but with easy access via the hostel's free, short boat ride across the beautiful lake. This was such a positive start to my time in Guatemala. I also booked my transport to Ixpanpajul Nature Park, to Tikal, and to Lanquin through them with no issues.

    A family run hostel, not one for those who want to party lots. The free boat ( yes it’s on the other side of the lake) stops at 9pm but very cheap to grab a boat taxi to get back. They do lock the gate quite early so not sure the process of getting in if you come back late. Hector was amazing, all staff were so friendly and the young girl working there was so helpful and her English is brilliant. We had no problems what so ever here and everyone was so helpful and friendly.

    I just stayed 1night. Super awkward and terrible night. There was owner’s birthday party from 10pm. Owner said this is Saturday so party and music will be over 1am. Understandable, it’s kinda birthday party. But it was too much... it’s owner’s and the staffs’ not for the guests’ party. They didn’t care about guests’ sleep.... after that night, electricity was gone, no wifi, no light. Understandable, it’s guatemala. But the staffs didn’t care and said they don’t know when power can be usuable..

    Very noisy place, the staff was drunk. They put loud techno music all night long. No customer was invited, it was a staff only party, just below our dorm. They refused to lower the volume, even if nobody was able to sleep.
