    I’ve been coming back and forth from this hostel over the last year and half with beautiful views of the lake, huge breakfast offerings, attentive staff and volunteers and almost nightly activities for travelers to engage in. One of my favorite hostels in my travels and hard to beat the vibes at this hostel.

    Great location and good vibes for the travellers. Lovely free breakfast that was much appreciated. Only complaint is the door need oiling, in the private rooms every door squeaked like a haunted house.......easily recitifiable.

    Such a nice hostel, but the best part of it was the staff. Made me feel welcome from the beginning. I recommend this place as it has a great atmosphere but they also make sure you have a nice sleep. Quiet time starts at 10PM and the mornings are also very chill and the offer yoga classes which are amazing.

    The place is great in general (the dorms stink to be fair) but the vibe, the people that work there, the yoga classes and the views are amazing! I had a lovely weekend and if I ever go back to San Marcos (which I know I will) I would defo stay at hostel del Lago again!

    I stayed at this place during low season and construction was going on nearly constantly. Even a 6 am in the common area. Everything was clean and nice, the rooms just had a smell to them, but, still clean. Overall a great environment and good deal for your money. Probably even better in the on season with no construction. Staff was wonderful

    The dorm room was very basic and could do with a little TLC as there was a broken window in the bathroom and it was just a little run down. The shower in the bathroom wasn’t working which meant having to use the communal shower outside. There was also only 2 plugs for the whole 6 bed dorm and the WiFi doesn’t reach the rooms (not a big deal for me). However, the breakfasts were amazing as was the food in the restaurant. The hostel has events on every night which was a great atmosphere!

    Pluses - Beautiful views of the lake and appealing common areas with a nice, rustic feel, tasty and well-prepared food from the restaurant, and plenty of electrical sockets and flat surfaces for nomads and those who want to work. Minuses: Dorms and showers are very basic, though comfortable enough for a few days stay. WiFi doesn't extend to dorms and was occasionally unreliable, and they require keeping your passport, and 100Q deposits for locker keys and towels (each). What the hell?!?!?!?!?!?

    This hostel was perfectly fine (and the lakeside dock is incredible), but I was not that impressed otherwise. The 10-bed dormitory was right on the side of the road and had paper-thin walls, so you could hear everything that happened outside. There were also dogs barking all night, making it hard to get a good night's sleep. The bathroom had ants (I think? Or some other kind of bug) in it and definitely looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. Also, the lockers were really small.
