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.

    Simple but exactly what we were looking for. Got all your basic necessities, great pool and view. Staff were super friendly and helpful with everything. Only complaint would be the food since some people didn’t feel too well afterwards but then again that can happen anywhere in Guatemala. :)

    Loved our stay here. Very chilled vibes, feels like you’re sleeping in a treehouse in the middle of the jungle. Staff super helpful and food reasonably priced. Great value for money compared to other hostels in the area. Hope to return - Thank you!

    The semuc champey tour from here was the best value for money an such a good day out. It was my birthday here and the staff helped organise a cake and we’re lovely. It was very quiet here however so not great for partying.

    Pros: nice pool area with lovely view. Staff all very helpful and smiley. Comfy beds. Nice family run feel. Can book shuttles and tours directly at hostel. Cons: I didn’t feel that safe at times because the dorm didn’t have lock on the door and there is no substantial perimeter fence, I worried at night that there could be intruders. Also no lockers. Found it harder also my mosquito net had big holes in it and I got bitten to shreds! Difficult to meet new people - already formed groups it seemed

    Very Good

    Pros: good location, only 10min walk to Lanquin centre, beautiful property, comfortable beds, amazing swimming pool, clean, free tuk tuk that pick you up from the shuttle bus, large choice of food for a good price. Cons: if your room is far from the reception/communal areal the wifi might not work. One staff member was very nice but when I declined the tour he was offering for Semuc, he totally ignored me and wasn’t nice very nice anymore.
