    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.

    Amazing Hostel! Follow the instruction on hostel world to get there and you won’t be disappointed! Spectacular views from the balcony and very good value rooms! The owners were amazing, helped us with everything we needed from help with events in town to finding medical help for our sick friend. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in! Thankyou

    Papaya's is open and ready for business!!! Me and my girlfriend stayed here on a recent trip to lake Atitlan. The location is a down an alley a little tucked back off the main road which helps keep things more quite than being on the main strip. Staff was friendly and welcoming and the owner provided his personal contact for suggestions and help booking trips around the area. Would definitely come back again. 10/10.

    Not a party hostel, so go there if you want some calm time. Nice & helpful staff. A bit hidden but still central (it’s a small town anyways)
