In the heart of Flores, Guatemala, Hostel Yaxha is the place to relax and meet other travellers while visiting Tikal and other Mayan sites nearby. We provide the option of well-priced, very clean dorms and spacious private rooms. All of our rooms have private bathrooms with hot showers (Flores is a hot place so you can also make them cold), there is an upstairs low key common space, while downstairs in Café Arqueológico Yaxha there is ample seating to unwind after a day of exploring. Have a drink during happy hour and try traditional Mayan dishes from one of the most affordable places to eat in Flores. At Hostel Yaxha we also provide access to our specialty tours of Mayan sites in the area, laundry service and free WiFi. We also offer one-on-one, and two-on-one Spanish lessons through our Spanish school Dos Mundos, with options available for full weeks or crash courses. While staying at Hostel Yaxha, you receive a discounted rate at Dos Mundos. If you are looking for a place to go out in Flores, come and check out the best sunset in town from our rooftop night bar and restaurant SKY BAR, where there is a free shot waiting for all Hostel Yaxha guests. Hostel Yaxha, Café Arqueológico Yaxha and SKY BAR are owned and operated Patrick Westcott and Dieter Richter. Our friendly local staff are looking forward to help create your Mayan experience at one, or all, of our establishments.

Magic Mike on the rooftop is the best, go have a drink with him. Hostel itself is amazing and the roof makes it. Very cheap and nice rooms as well. Beers and drink specials all day every day. Lovely place.
