We are a social hostel located in Panajachel, on the shores of the beautiful lake Atitlan of Guatemala. Owned by two Australians, one German and one Guatemalan, we do our best to show our guests a different, more sociable hostel experience.
We try to provide information about local cultural events and the different activities around town for our guests, while involving them also in our own events and taking them out by night, to show them the gems of Panajachel nightlife.
Our Team is more like a family, that's why we mostly prefer to meet all you amazing people face to face before both sides agree on a volunteer position and its duration.
