“A miserable mouldy dump”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2008

Do not be tempted to stay here. The price of a double with a private bathroom was 180 Q when we stayed, which seemed cheap as it wasn't much more than the doubles without bathrooms at the other lodges, but there's a reason for this! The room was in awful condition, with flaking plaster, a mouldy lightshade and a leaking roof. The staff were also unfriendly and unhelpful - we ended up booking a tour to Semuc Champey through Casa Luna, which had very friendly staff and looked like a much nicer place to stay.

  • Liked — Nothing
  • Disliked — Leaking roof, damp room, mouldy lightshade, etc, etc

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2008

This place is old, and that's a plus. The floor boards were huge planks of wood, decorations very old school, and the place, in general, a spot to get a good feel of a ladino operation of historical significance. The staff were helpful, the location was a block off the plaza, and there are a variety of rooms from bunk beds in the back for packers and matrimonial rooms for couples off the courtyard. i loved the place, and would go back. and the price- i believe it was $26 a room- fit.
