    Loved loved loved this hostel! It’s higher up on a hill so it’s great to sit out on the deck and just look over the town. Super safe area as it’s across the road from the police station. Staff are amazing and the whole place just has a very homely vibe. Great stay!

    I was worried about how I would fill my three days in San Ignacio once I decided not to spend $85 on the ATM cave. This hostel became my family. Steven, Aldo and Davina are so welcoming and friendly. I loved our nightly balcony sessions. This cozy place is a home away from home and I would have stayed longer had my visa not been a day away from expiration.

    Davina and Aldo were awesome. The whole place has a vibe like your best friend’s place... very relaxing and I felt comfortable right away. Clean, easy to find, amazing porch to hang out on, and they hooked me up with a great guide for the ATM cave tour. Highly recommend.

    Great hostel! Solo traveller and found it easy to meet people here. Booked my atm tour through them for $85usd. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm and the space was a bit small but enough to store your bag and sleep. Got my own fan in the 4 bed dorm which was very nice. Giant social areas so the small space doesn’t matter any way. Bar underneath is quirky and cool, if it’s open when you stay you should check it out. Staff are very friendly and helpful and bathrooms are huge singles!! Would stay again.

    Very relaxed and intimate hostel, you get to know everyone quickly by hanging out on the balcony. The brothers were legends, showers were great, location is 10/10. Only negative was that it got really hot in the rooms.

    Homely hostel, feels like a family house! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The noise from the street is extremely loud so didn’t get much sleep. Other than that a decent hostel.

    Good place to spend a night or two. Staff really helpful. Bathrooms clean and good - there's even extra ones downstairs. Everything seemed clean and good. Kitchen well-equipped (though we did not try cooking there ourselves). Cool building and nice spaces to chill out. Friendly vibe -would reccomend.
