Marvelus Hostel
Ranked #28 of 29 Hotels in Panajachel
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The good points:
-Free wifi & computers
-hot water
-sitting area outside with hammocks
-a kitchen to use with multiple tables, a fridge, a TV & DVDs
-quiet
-good location once you find it
-lockers to use if you have a lock

Bad points:
-the dorms can be hot because there is no fan
-there seems to be no set price. The guy working makes it up. I was paying 40 Q. Later he was showing the dorms to 2 girls and told them it was 50 Q. each.
-very quiet, could be better with more guests
-the kitchen is not well kept. The dishes and utensils are not in the best shape. they don't offer water or free coffee either

All in all it was alright but there may be more fun places to stay.

The hostel is located on a little street off the main road, about a 10 minute walk from the lake. I had great difficulty finding the hostel as there wasn´t a map on their website and the street is not named in Lonely Planet or any other Panajechel map. The dorms were very basic and beds not the most comfortable. Bring your own sleeping bag or sheet as the linen didn´t appear to be that clean. Bathroom was very old and dirty, I avoided it completely (I only stayed for one night). All in all, this is a VERY basic hostel and I advise looking at other hostels.
