  • Description


    We are a chill, quiet and pleasant hostel located in the San Marcos La Laguna neighborhood, in Lake Atitlan..
    The neighborhood is one of the best known in the city, with many colorful houses and people. Many foreigners come to learn and practice yoga, meditation, engage with the local community or to enjoy the different activities the town has to offer.
    The hostel is a new concept where we seek to mix art, colors and good vibes, Our idea is: low price - high quality.
    This place sometimes feels more like a home than a hostel, and our guests often stay longer than they planned. If you want to spend some time in one of the best hostels in the city and meet people from all over the world, welcome!
