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.

Perfect location and perfect people. The yoga/chill area was such a nice touch too. Only critique I have is the mattress was too thin to sleep on, if that was fixed it'd have a perfect score :)

The staff were very friendly and welcoming so no faults there. However, it is a very isolated place and requires a lot of physical effort to get to. It was a hike from my dorm to connect to Wifi, use the bathrooms or get food which got old fast. Incredibly hot in the rooms with no ac, fans or ventilation left me drenched in sweat. It’s clean, secure and reasonably social. Food was decent. Beautiful views. It wasn’t really for me though and I would likely not stay again.

Amazing stay… very tranquil location. Staff is amazing. Views are the best I’ve seen from a hostel! They cook meals for you for 40-60 Q since it is so remote and they’re delicious! Only critique is the mattresses aren’t the most comfortable. Overall a great place for some quiet in nature
