    Hostel was a great facility, super close to everything and the vibe was really chill. Found it pretty noisy because the rooms are all pretty close and I was right against the outdoor wall, so whenever anyone came or left I'd feel the bunk start to shake.

    Just a really lovely and sweet place. Wouldn’t stay in any other place in San Ignacio. Helpful and nice staff, good beds, kitchen facilities and clean. Social, easy to meet people. You can book the cave tour through them, and they help you with informations on how to for example cross the border to Guatemala. Highly recommend!

    Very nice place to stay in San Ignacio! Nice people and nice atmosphere, nice terrace to hang out, full kitchen. The ATM tour booked with the hostel was great! The comfort of the mattresses could be improve though and the walls do not really isolate from the noise, for me it was ok but it could be a problem for some people. I would stay there again if I come back.

    This was a very nice, clean hostel with good facilities. Each bunk in my room had its own mini fan, which was so nice after a long day in the heat. Staff was very friendly. There are lots of areas to relax (couches, tables, cushions, hammocks, etc.) and it’s very quiet at night and chill during the week. On the weekends, it’s a pretty loud at night until late because there’s a club downstairs, so consider that if you plan to go to bed early.

    Good hostel, comfortable beds and in a good location. Downfall is that that most the beds in the dorm don’t have a socket and the road outside is noise all night with cars and drunk people walking up the hill.
