    This place is amazing. Let me start by saying that it is NOT a “party hostel,” which is why I love it. It’s a great place to chill or to wind down after a long day. Close to tons of restaurants, the embarcaderos (docks), and everything else, and a great place to meet people. It definitely feels very safe and comfortable. I extended my stay for a month after being here for a week. Jose runs the place and is an amazing host. He always goes above and beyond to make guests feel comfortable.

    We loved our stay at Mandalas. The staff was absolutely phenomenal, Jose was an amazing host who went out of his way to help with/answer any question. The terrace view of the lake was stunning, perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. Beds were comfortable and there was a full kitchen in the hostel. Will be back if ever around the lake again.

    I couldn’t recommend this hostel any more highly. The owner was so kind and caring towards us. He deeply cares for his property and those staying there, it was a great environment. Also, the views from the terrace are phenomenal! If I come back to San Pedro, I will for sure be staying at Mandalas.

    Mandalas is a wonderful, relaxed place with a great view up on the terrace. Spacious hostel, many places to retreat to, very nice privates. Dorms are roomy with much daylight. Hostel has not reopened long and some things break, but the manager is doing his best and fixes things quickly. Kitchen is very usable+comfortable, has oven, sometimes too few pots. More towels in the kitchens and bathrooms would be good. Internet is not enough to work online. The atmosphere is lovely! Stayed 3 weeks :)

    Very relaxed hostel, good place to chill. It is located in an alleyway which does look a bit dodgy the first time you arrive but is fine. Wifi is a bit weak but I think that’s the same in all of San Pedro. Shower was warm but had quite a weak flow of water. My room had its own key and the whole hostel is cleaned daily.
