Property Description

In the heart of Flores, Guatemala, Hostel Yaxha is the place to relax and meet other travellers while visiting Tikal and other Mayan sites nearby.

We provide the option of well-priced, very clean dorms and spacious private rooms.

All our rooms have hot showers (Flores is a hot place so you can also make them cold), there is an upstairs low key common space, while downstairs in Café Arqueológico Yaxha there is ample seating to unwind after a day of exploring. Have a drink during happy hour and try traditional Mayan dishes from one of the most affordable places to eat in Flores.

At Hostel Yaxha we also provide access to our specialty tours of Mayan sites in the area, laundry service and free WiFi.

We also offer one-on-one, and two-on-one Spanish lessons through our Spanish school Dos Mundos, with options available for full weeks or crash courses. While staying at Hostel Yaxha, you receive a discounted rate at Dos Mundos.

If you are looking for a place to go out in Flores, come and check out the best sunset in town from our rooftop night bar and restaurant SKY BAR, where there is a free shot waiting for all Hostel Yaxha guests.

We are recommended in all guide-books: Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Moon, Footprint, Routard, Reise-Know-How, Stefan Loose.

    Everything was good except that the guy in the reception tried to sell me a shuttle ticket from Lanquin to Antigua for 200Q saying that there was only one company in Lanquin and that they charge high prices so I should directly book in Flores. Thank god I did not because the tickets sold in Lanquin were only 125Q.

    Yaxha located a perfect location for discover Flores in a quiet area and if you’re into the hustle bustle it’s there available for you just in few steps.

    Hostel was clean, comfortable and well located. Security was good with lock boxes next to dorm beds and lockable rooms. My front door key wasn’t working, but luckily it was just after closing and staff let me in. I arrived late in room both nights and unfortunately the fan was on full ball as well as air conditioning. It was too cold, there were no blankets and in the dark it wasn’t clear where fan switch was. Unfortunately I subsequently caught cold which affected my dive plans in Utila.

    Was a decent stay. It can be pretty loud in the evenings, with bean bag toss etc being played at the rooftop bar. Staff were good, Mike at the front desk was stellar. Cleaning staff entered my room and left my door unlocked one day which I didn’t appreciate. Wifi was good, cafe in the entrance open until 10pm, staffed 24 hours, no curfew.

    We were only in Flores for an evening to catch a FDN bus to Belize, but this hostel served it’s purpose. Clean, friendly staff, and rooms have A/C (if you pay extra). Showers were a bit difficult to use, as we could not figure out how to turn the heat on even with the instructions. Laundry facilities were easy and quick. This is a great hostel to stay if you’re spending some time in Flores! I would definitely stay here again.

    I want to start by saying this hostel isn’t bad. The good parts are the shower and the terrace. But it doesn’t deserve to have as high a score as it does. The dorm had 9 people packed into this little room on triple decker bunk beds. Bags and bottles everywhere, felt like I was a chicken in a cage. Not the worst place in the world, but a 7 is all it should have.

    Staff really friendly, honest, and helpful. No atmosphere at all, tours unorganised and overpriced, rooms small and cramped

    We stayed at an 'apartment' not knowing it wouldn't be completely separate from the actual hostel. The apartment had no atmosphere and there was a lot of noise. I had to sleep with my earplugs in because of all the traffic noise and people walking past, sounding like they were inside the house. Also we paid way more for the 2 nights than any exchange rate would have us believe if the prices on the website were correct. This is the second time this has happened in Guatemala.
