I stayed in this hostel for 2 night with an israeli friend i had met along the way. The owner is a slightly creepy english guy( which is also where i'm from) and would advise his staff to try and sell whatever they could at a price that wasn't exactly cheap going by Guatamalan prices. We were relaxing outside of our dorm room and were approached 4 seperate times asking if we would like anything to drink, and if we did not have a meal you could tell they were not all to pleased. In my opinion a hostel cannot be run by an owner who has 8 staff members mooching off him for accomadation and subsequently doing no work besides to constantly ask you if you would like a drink. In fairness the location is good and Livingston as a place is strange but cool. If you can get the boat from Rio dulce to Livingston, possibly one of the best boat trips ive ever been on, absolutely gorgeous.
