We stayed for 4 nights and it was perfect for us. We had a basic room on the top of the hotel with a great view on the lake, with hamacs. Hot shower, private bathroom, room with 2 doubles beds, free and good wifi, great location. Gladys is very friendly and helpfull. A very affordable place for backpackers.

We stumbled across this place after being turned away from the San Antonio, which was full.
Serendipity!
We were first shown a room in the section of the hotel that's undergoing restoration. It's across the street from the lakeside portion. We rejected the offered room, even at $9 a night. That's when we were shown a lakeside room for $19. We planned to stay two nights; were now on night 8 and counting.
The owner, Gladys, is charming.
Is it dumpy and disheveled? You betcha.
Would my wife and I return here?
Hell, we may never leave.

Inexpensive and clean, although pretty run down. The view from the roof is very good. The staff brought blankets without being asked as it was a cold and blustery night. Two hundred character requirement.

Nice and clean room with lake view for 80Q. Bathrooms and kitchen kept in good condition. A nice view from the Rooftop common area. Warning, don't take a room at the neighbours property. The sister hostel is dirty and you don't get access to the clean bathroom nor kitchen

This Hotel is good. We had some problems with hot water, but it was solved at that moment. It is new, I think is the newest in the area. Has a "tamascal" (similar to sauna).

The rooms are just fine and clean, no problems with bugs, the prices are fine, not to much, not to few. So you should expect a nice quiet weekend with your family, friends or boy/girlfriend.

Has an awesome view to the Atitlan Lake, if you wake up you'll see a colourful sunrise. At night there's nothing but silence and nature sounds, depending on the churchs among the lake.

I would stay again in this beauty and humble hotel.

I am eternally grateful to the staff at this hotel. I stayed here for about two weeks in February. I crushed 2 vertebrae in a boating incident and was bedridden for over a week and I was cared for exceptionally well by the staff especially Luis. Beautiful lake front position the rooms were exceptionally clean and bright, lovely views and common area, close to everything but nice and quiet, caring and lovely staff. I really felt at home especially at a trying time.

Nice and clean rooms,
great view,
useful kitchen,
Right next to quiet secluded part of the lake.
Flexible with prices, the more you stay, the cheaper it is.
Location is very quiet but still central.
Free drinking water, hot shower, and friendly helpful staff.

The only thing I liked with this place was the hangout area. Many chairs, couches and wifi. I didn't like the rooms. Dirty feeling over all and the beds we're pretty bad. Didn't really understand who was working there, not good service at all. Can be nice to visit the hang out area of this hostel if you are I San Marcos, but I wouldn't stay here again..
