    Del Lago is definately one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Great atmosphere and the staff and volunteers are always welcoming and happy to help anyway they can. Huge variety of travelers that come through, if you're a musician, artist, psychonoaut, yogi, misfit than THIS is the place for you 😁 Breathtaking views from their personal dock right at the lake to soak up the sun and hang out amongst other like minded travellers. If you're heading to San Marcos definitely check out Del Lago!!

    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

    Ok Hostel. Loud music outide, dogs barking, you’ll get no sleep if you are near the road Beds are too short for men over 6’ tall Reception seemed uninterested Live music was so bad but you have to listen to get the free wifi (no WIFI in rooms) need to give up passport for key deposit no lockers in room other than tiny ones that work for everyones key Food was good, View was awesome, but too many things need to be fixed

    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?!?!?!?!?!?

    The quality of the staff is quite mix because most of them are volunteers. One of the girl who checked me in was really cold and not friendly. I had 4 luggages when I checked in, she didn’t help me with any single piece and just walked coldly in front of with and left me struggling with 4 luggage’s. The other staffs are nicer and more helpful. It’s not clean and on Saturday night the music was awful. To be fair, the view is one of the best in Lake Atitlan.
