The vibe in this hostel is very chill. The swimmingpool is very big and refreshing. The staff and the owner are very nice and the food is amazing. The dorm is clean and spacious. The mattresses are thick and comfortable. You can walk from the hostel to Semuc Champey and at the hostel reception you can book several tours. We had a nice time here, that we will never forget.

Greengo’s has all you wish for in a hostel. Comfy beds, amazing strong and hot showers, food dishes from all over the world as well as local, good vibes, amazing pool, and lots to play and keep you busy( volleybal, games, football). The hostel is surrounded by green hills and close to Semuc Entrance and little stores. The owner and staff are amazing, helpful and super friendly. Doing their best to give you a great time. Also very easy to arrange shuttles and tours. Definitely want to come back here.

Thank you so much for your positive words! We however wanted to correct you. We believe your stopwatch was a little fast and would like to introduce an official time of 55.3 seconds. And yes, you do want to try this drink.

This unique hostel in a jungle paradise setting has EVERYTHING you need to have an epic time, The facility are that of a quality hotel, The pool is just amazing, big enough to do laps of a morning, The spa is super nice, with a shallow reading area surrounding the spa itself, awesome design. The food is awesome and the workers go above and beyond to make you feel accommodated, Jeremys a legend (same to the other workers) For example, we got to Lanquin early before their bus was due to leave, so they came and picked just me and my partner up and organised a colectivo to take us to the front door of gringos! (50mins into the jungle, awesome experience itself!) Super stoked with that and it meant we got an extra 6 or so hours of relaxing in that day. It’s SO close to all the epic activities and hikes, you literally could not get a more convenient location in Semuc Champey! Plus all their tours from the hostel are super affordable and the tour guides were legends! Do yourself a favour and go see this unreal place for yourself, easy one of our favourite spots! Ps (Their cave tour is the best tour I’ve ever done!)
