We stayed 2 nights in a 10 bed dorm in El Muro. When we arrived after a long journey we found that the 10 bed dorm has 4 lockers, all of which were in use. This was made all the more unsafe by the fact that the dorm was unlocked and accessible from the bar. The 1 working toilet for...

If you're going to stay in Lanquin, I would highly recommend staying at El Muro. The owners, Max and Alex, were so accommodating. I can't thank them enough for the experience. We were treated like family upon arrival and they both went out of their way to make our trip extra special. The hostel is nestled against the hills of...

We stayed in a private ensuite room for 3 nights in late March 2017. We had a great time at El Muro. Max was a great help, welcoming to all. Make sure you give Chumbo a belly rub from us. Our room was clean, towels and soap were provided. Showers were cold. Wifi was great although you need to pay...

El Muro is the best place to stay in Lanquin. Max and Pelon are great and are very knowledgeable about the area. The guides they have are very fun and entertaining. We stayed longer than we expected because of how great everyone was. There is more to do than just Semuc. Ask about Tom about the hiking trails. Stay here...
