Property Description

A 30 minute hike down an ancient Mayan pathway leads to our beautiful and secluded little piece of paradise. At Ch'i Bocol Community Hostel we have a full service restaurant and bar, a nice common area with several hammocks and other comfortable seats, and amazing company. We pride ourselves in making you feel at home, no matter where you are from and how far you have traveled to get here.

All of our accommodations are private or shared cabins which are spread across a 2 acre piece of land. They are quite spacious and comfortable, with several windows to let the cool breeze in. Our dorms include lockers for all of your valuables, and all cabins include power outlets to charge your electronics.

Ch'i Bocol Community Hostel is located deep in the heart of the Guatemalan jungle, with a creek on one side of the property, and the beautiful Cahabon River on another. Only a few minute walk from our cabins is a natural swimming pool on the edge of a beautiful waterfall.

this was definitely my fav hostel ive stayed in so far. Its definitely a trek to get to, but as long as youre in contact with the hostel (through whatsapp they respond really fast), its super easy. The staff is super nice. The food at the hostel (very yummy) is vegan. Wish i couldve stayed here so much longer it was an awesome experience

We had mixed feelings going to this hostel because of past reviews but luckily they have changed management. There is still some work to be done but it’s definitely back on track to live up to its potential. As two female backpackers we felt safe, the staff is lovely and very helpful. I would recommend this hostel to young travels because you get a full jungle immersion while feeling part of a small community and encouraged to connect with nature and the locals through the activities offered :)

I really enjoyed my stay but it might not be for everyone, it is pretty remote and is pretty much off grid and open to the jungle but if you are looking for a wild experience you won't get anywhere else, drop in and stay a few days. it's worth it.
