Property Description

Vista Verde is a hostel with local owners, with Mayan descent.
It all started with a dream, the story begins with a mother with six children, fighting hard to give each day her bread to each of her children. The owner named Celia is 60 years old, previously engaged in the work of laundry, agriculture and more. Our first language is the Mayan Qékchi language, the second language is Spanish, therefore we speak very little English.

If you want to have a contact with the local Mayan culture we recommend you to come to green view, all our staff can tell you our roots and traditions, our language and customs.

Our concept is of a rustic and ecological hostel, with a culture and traction of Guatemala and Lanquin, we have helpful staff who are willing to help you in all, all our rooms have views of the mountains, some overlooking the river

We have an incredible pool, overlooking the small town of Lanquin, a sunrise that you can never forget.

Our hostel is very new and our concept is ecology therefore we only work with solar panels and a generator that provide electric power to our rooms, we have electric power in the rooms from 6:00 pm - 12:00 am, if you want water hot only in the aforementioned hours, in the morning and part of the day we do not have hot water

Breakfast is served daily, extra-fee may be applied. From the property, you will enjoy fantastic views over the mountain, river or city.

    Lovely staff and beautiful hostel, just slightly ruined by the woman who runs it. She treats the staff really badly and is obsessed with getting as much money out of everyone as possible - she almost made me miss my bus on my last day because didn’t believe that I hadn’t eaten all my meals at the hostel and wanted to “re-check” the accounts

    Very nice hostel with beautiful views and facilities. The food was splendid and they were very accommodating even with a booking error they accommodated us very professionally. The staff are friendly and very helpful. It's family run and they're simply amazing and fun. Definitely recommend to stay here

    Food is overpriced. Staff members don't speak Spanish nor English since they're natives who speak their Mayan language. You might think they're laughing at you but they're actually joking among them. The place was amazing, I loved nature around.

    I stayed with my friend in a private, two bed room, for two nights. We liked the quiet atmosphere and ability to eat on-site with vegan options. But it's a small staff so be aware the food service takes a long time. Overall the place is clean although there were holes in our bug nets. This didn't matter as much in the private room as it wasn't an open air accommodation. We found we liked staying at the quieter Vista Verde and walking up to Zephry for food/drink/partying/free water.

    Staff were a bit pushy. Got the impression that hostel was trying to get customers buy everything from them. Beautiful swimming pool with wonderful views. Toilets far from dorm.

    Meh, its okay. Hostel was clean and not too worn out yet. Some of the staff were quite rude and pushy, you felt like you were bothering them when you asked for help. Location is pretty nice. Food overpriced.

    The hostel is in a perfect location but it’s let down by the family that run it. Very rude and unhelpful - even tried adding extra things to our tab we hadn’t had! It was good value for money but not worth it for the atmosphere created by the staff.

    This Hostal was one of my worst experiences during my trip through Guatemala. The service, the food and the behavior of the staff toward the guest is miserable. Every time I came to the reception to ask something, the staff moaned and started laughing at me and my friends, chatting in their Mayan dialect. Besides their misbehavior there are a lot of points to mention, but the highlight was that they wanted to call the police several times, because they accused us for stealing things.
