Chal Tun Ha was a brilliant find for our stay in Flores. You get picked up by Neil and taken across the water to San Miguel where a cold beer and an amazing view greet you. The cabanas are lovely if a tad noisy (we had a rooster under ours who crowed all night) but we loved it so much... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights at Chaltunha Hostel. We didn't book any accommodation in advance in Flores and first wanted to stay at Los Amigos! Very glad we didn't. Neil the owner and his staff are excellent! We got picked up in Flores within 10 minutes. (Yes, you have to take a water taxi if you want... More

Had a great time here. This hostel is located on San Miguel island in Flores. I loved taking the short boat ride over to the island every day. The view from the hostel of Flores is breathtaking and totally worth it. Flores itself is pretty small and all the hostels are in one area so it seems like one could... More

A secret jewel in San Miguel. Peaceful place, breathtaking view on Flores & the lake Petén Itzá, friendly people, nice pool, lot´s of nature and space to relax. Very affordable prices for bungalows, dorms, drinks and food. Really worth a visit...!

We had an incredible time at Neils place. The setting (up on the mountain) to overlook the island of Flores and the lake are just breath taking. Neil is such a nice guy, who really likes to support travellers in all their travel needs. The cabins are great for couples, but probably not ideal for dormitories. We found the prices... More

Advantages: Great view; Neil is very helpful with respect to setting travel plans up, etc.; close to a decent beach; comfy hammock; pretty laid back and comfortable atmosphere. Food is good (but a little pricey). Disadvantages: The noise. One of the neighbors plays music all day, and through part of the night, so it was almost impossible for us to... More

Owner Neil is a lovely person and very generous with his time. He helped us with trip planning and bookings and made sure we were at our next bus away, on time. The wood cabins themselves are quite sweet and set in lush and quaint surrounds. One criticism is that the bathrooms are not so convenient to dorms, especially if... More
