    We just loved Casa de Grethel! The service was very amazing! Everyone was very helpful! They help you with booking tours, bus tickets, transportation,etc. The restaurant is also amazing! The vibe and atmosphere is very relaxing! They don't provide you with a kitchen though. The rooms were pretty comfortable. The facility is very clean! Would definitely stay in this place again!

    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!

    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.

    Cute and unique hostel because it just looks like a big house on the inside! Rooms have AC which is turned on at night. You cannot use the kitchen which is a downside. There was also a really cute dog owned by the family living here that I loved to hang out with.

    We loved it. Free ferry across to Flores is actually quite fun and not too tedious. The staff don’t speak much to any English but are a very helpful family with a cute shitzu dog. I arrived at midnight and all the kitchens were closed, but the receptionist still whipped me up a tasty meal on the house! Another time the staff went above and beyond was when we were rescued from a quite frightening storm on the boat, where we all almost lost our lives (or our phones😂) Jetty is also piffffffff! Xx

    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.
