    The staff was very accommodating with the need of my elderly parents in changing the room to a floor level. Very thoughtful. Beyond expectations!

    My mother and I had a lovely stay here, it was hard to leave! Beautiful location right on the water, with hammocks and kayaks free to use! Drinking water was provided and we could fill up our water bottles through out the day. The breakfast was delicious and plenty and the staff were so kind. The owner along with his staff went out of their way to make sure we had a lovely stay, thank you everyone at posada schumann!! We would love to come back :)

    Free breakfast and a great spot to get away and to have some time to yourself. The staff were so lovely and the location on the dock means it’s easy to get to the other towns on the lake :)

    A very relaxing place to spend a few nights. Not a ton of socialization, but the quiet was appreciated. The rooms are nice, but it felt like they may have not been stayed in for a while. Staff were extremely helpful and the views were amazing. Would recommend for those looking for a quiet getaway.

    Beautiful located with a Lakeview restaurant and terrace. It's not like the other places in San Marcos, less hippie-style. But of course they serve also vegeterian food and I think there is enough space for Yoga sessions. Apropos food - the breakfast is great! Unfortunately it was raining all day during my stay so I left after 2 nights but would go to this place if I would return to San Marcos.

    Very Good

    Overall we had a good stay at Posada Schumann, the room was great and breakfast was good, only other comments were this was the only hostel throughout our stay in Guatemala (we stayed in about 4/5 others) which didn't provide free drinking water, the shower also wasn't as good as the other hostels we stayed, the kayaks were not able to be used when we stayed, we rented some further along the waterfront instead

    Localization next to the pier - but boats did not stop there (sea levels did not allowed induring my stay); is a walking distance from other pier and the rest and bars uphill (although a small dark alley) No kitchen to use. Room very outdated Good hot shower. Staff good. Good brakfast - 3 types to choose. Old sauna, yoga classes and kayak Kinda ghost hostel at night, with no latin america atmosphere. I guess a more "central" hostel would be better, but otherwise this one is still a option

    Room a good size and the view from the restaurant area is nice. Breakfast was also good. Mattress/ pillows are shocking. Don’t expect to sleep in, music from the kitchen at 07.45. Can hear everything from the toilets, not nice. Bathroom setup, we had to go downstairs which is fine, but 3 very small spaced cubicles/ one outside sink. Everyone seems to be using the toilets. Locals in town/ the builders from next door. A mess. Needs to be cleaned more often. Cold showers too.

    Unfortunately, they couldn't figure out their pricing and wouldn't honour the price on hostel world that we had agreed. They where then very hostile, really poor service from someone in the hospitality business. Would recommend aa different hotel in the area

    We booked this hostel on website five months in advance, however, when we arrived, the hostel was actually closed to guests for an artist's retreat. The owner was very casual about it and sent us to a different hostel down the street. When we went back the following day to pick up our deposit he was nowhere to be found, and after waiting for an hour decided to leave San Marcos. We still never got our deposit back. Do not book this hostel.
