This is an overdue review, I’ve been here multiple times over the last year and half, one of my favorite places in the world! Come and watch the epic sunrises over the volcanos around the magical lake of Atitlan, it’s also just as easy to spend hours on their dock contemplating life, sharing drinks with new friends, or lying in the sun. Or take one of their brilliant yoga classes offered throughout the day. The food- Lots of offerings served throughout the day, including their free HUGE breakfast offerings with stay, and extensive lunch and dinner menu. The staff- this is one of the areas the places shine and especially memorable during my last stay as I stayed over a week and everyone made me feel like family. Special shoutout to Megan, Charlotte, Oscar, Andrew, Jordan, Thomas, Tatianna, Ivanna and Peter - the wonderful volunteers who were extremely attentive in making my stay comfortable. Eduardo, the manager remembering me from my previous stays and welcoming Me back to beautiful location with open arms and friendly smile. Thanks Hostel del Lago!

The place is ok... In front of the lake... We were looking for a place to grab a drink with good views, Service was bad. The italian girl was a bit rude when we order. Worst gin and tonic i ever had. I will not return. Lack of smiles...

This hostel is definitely worth a stay! Nice location, very friendly staff and the most amazing view of lake atitlan. We had a great experience here. Also i would recommend the fish tacos at the hostels restaurant. They are delicious!

We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. It is very clean, with good facilities (e.g. a sauna) and has an excellent location on the lake. The food and drink at the bar is very good and reasonably priced. The only downsides were the lake of wi-fi in our room, and also the lack of curtains, such that it was very bright in our room quite early on in the morning. Overall I would very mch recommend Hostel del Lago!

Beautiful place for relaxing and spending some days in San Marcos and Atitlan lake surroundings. The rooms are comfortable, shared bathrooms with hot water, good restaurant and bar, kind staff and service. The sauna room is brilliant, and also yoga/pilates platform, or having some great photos of the mountains and lake at the dock
