A terrific hostel for solo travelers, couples, and families
Dorm Bed: $7.00
San Miguel Flores Peten ,
Overlooking the lake and the main island part of the town (great view!), this hostel has dorms as well as private bungalows in a delightful jungle setting. The central pool provides a nice place to socialize and meet other travelers, while the onsite restaurant and bar keeps you fed and relaxed. The very affordable bungalows all have their own front porches, and some have ensuite bathrooms.
The owners and staff, who live on site, are extremely helpful and friendly. They can provide for your every need, as well as book trips and activities (such as to the ruins of Tikal). While the hostel is across the lake from the town, they can also arrange for boats to the town or other nearby spots. Other guest reviews claim that the facilities are very clean and well kept.
Wi-Fi, laundry, and other typical hostel amenities are also available. They are also kid-friendly!
