    Old House Hostel was great! As soon as I arrived I was able to check-in and Dale provided all sorts of recommendations for things to do around San Ignacio which was super helpful for me since I hadn’t done my own research before embarking on this trip. The hostel is in great location and anything that can’t be reached by foot can be easily organized with the hostel staff. I did a river tubing trip and visited the ATM caves which were both organized by Aldo and Dale. No complaints. Would go back!

    Loved this hostel. The workers were amazing and gave so much information about what to do in the neighbourhood. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Rooms were good, everything was clean and I felt very safe here. Only downfall is the bar underneath the hostel gets loud if you wanna sleep early. If not it’s a great place to listen to live music and have a drink.

    I stayed in the private room and the amenities were awesome. My bed and pillows were beyond comfy and soft. Clean place and great staff all around! Loved the vibe of the place, especially when the art gallery/bar downstairs is opened.

    One of the most enjoyable hostels I've stayed at. The people working there do a great job cultivating a fun, comfortable, inclusive social space. The facilities are great overall. Two really nice large balconies, plenty of open seating, enough space in the rooms. The bathrooms are spacious and the showers have hot water. WiFi works well. The one huge downside is the outside noise. There are lots of barking dogs outside all night, and loud car engines constantly. Bring great earplugs!
