One of the best hostel experiences of my life. The common areas are beautiful, very relaxed and great for striking up conversations with other backpackers. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food is mostly western but done very very well. I would recommend the Holy Guacamole Eggs for breakfast and the chicken wings and papas frites for snacks...

We were hesitant to book this place as it seems to be the only place anyone stays in Flores, but we went ahead anyway and can now see why. The accommodation is very comfortable, I recommend the private rooms with fans (we had two in our room had to turn one off as it was too cold) in Hostel Los...

Cheap, accessible, super duper friendly staff, Mindy simply made me laugh every morning, and Francisco at the bar is very friendly. The atmosphere is great and meeting people is easy, tours everywhere and awesome experience.

We have been staying here for 2 nights on our guatemala trip. Good things first... the hostal has a nice backyard to hang out. Furthermore there is a tour booking office inside where we booked our trip to tikal. The trip was very good (4.30 am, 150 quetzales for transport & guide, 150 quetzales for the entrance fee, group of...

Los Amigos get just about everything right. Huge social area, beautiful decor, massive range of tasty food, good drinks deals, friendly helpful staff (one of them gave me a lift to the bus station in Santa Elena and made sure I was on the right bus etc). Just such a good atmosphere when I was there, met some of the...

This hostel makes you feel at home. The staff is like a big family and the guests are all at ease. The main courtyard is basically a jungle, housing an amazing restaurant with very healthy food. We happily stayed here for longer than anticipated - about 8 days. Unlike many hostels, it is clear that the profits are all reinvested...

This is a really good hostel although I am a huge fan of plants and they have the most on point garden that I have seen on my travels. You can drink in the common area and then head upstairs to the club and continue the party where they have beer pong and giant Jenga (which we clocked btw) If...

First of all, the place is very pretty. Stayed in a dorm with 8 beds. It's a bit cramped but doesn't but it was clean and the bed is comfy. Plenty of showers and toilets. Lots of common areas. Location is great - close to everything. Didn't book any tours with them as they seems more expensive. The agency next...

The accommodation is nice if you want a party hostel with a nice communal area. The private rooms are in a different building. Quite pricey considering the lack of A/C. The communication at the travel desk is annoying and aggressive. They overcharge for tours and transport and giving misleading information and false claims, like 'best prices', 'El Mirador is the...
