“Newest and bestest hostel in SP”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

This place has it all. Cheap dorms ($4), personal lockers with power, reading lights, nice sturdy built-in beds, kitchen, chill-out garden, pool table, book-swap, reasonably priced bar, awesome central location and great staff.
It's not in your lonely planet cause it's only six months old but it's always busy through word of mouth. You have to stay here if you go to San Pedro, it is THE PLACE right now.

Stayed for great atmosphere. A nice social vibe with lots going on activity wise with evenings and the lake at your fingertips. If people are looking for a good place to chill out and meet people this is definitely the place.

While travelling I heard many people talking about Mr. Mullets and I understand why. Maybe on first sight it is not the prettiest hostel, but all the other features made my stay unforgetable. You can expect extreamly comfortable beds, great powerful hot showers, cool outside area with garden, pooltable and bar. Downstairs is a 'snackbar' with good sandwhiches and real Dutch snack such as 'kroket' and 'frikandel'. They also serve breakfast for a good price. The travellers staying here are very divers and this mix of people creates a very relaxed atmosphere.
I stayed a week in a private for 50Q a night and had a great time. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay at Mr. Mullets!

I arrived at Mr Mullets by chance just looking for a simple place for 1 night, and ended up staying 6! They have the best, honest proper HOT and powerful showers I have had the pleasure of using in Central America. Clean and very very cheap rooms with good beds and natural light, good Internet connection and an awesome cafe downstairs with great sandwiches and coffee. Close to absolutely everything in San Pedro including the pier, and just an awesome place to meet people chilling in the back yard or on the many hammocks around. Will return!

Such a great Place, Super central location, Hot showers (gas powered) thick comfortable mattresses and pillows. Massive communal area with a big fire pit (and an indoor firepit for when it rains). The owners Tim and Eliana are cool Hell and throw a banging party once in a while too. Special deals if you book a week or more . Stay Here you won't regret it

I just came back from 5 days at Mr Mullets and had a great time. Mr Mullets is one of the best hostels I have been in Central America. Pro's:

- new, clean rooms, with the best matresses (boxsprings) I have had in a hostel ever
- hot showers with high pressure, also the best i have had in a hostel ever
- They have a kitchen (opposing mentioned in an earlier review by a german girl)
- the owners are really, really friendly, hang out with the guests, and go the extra mile on service
- even though the music had to be out at 11pm (for the guests who want to sleep early) there was every night something going on in the garden. Most nights a campfire was being made and everybody was Welcome to join
- best of all: mr Mullets attracts an amazing crowd. I've been hanging out at Zoola's (which caters mostly large groups of Israelis) and Yo Mama's (which caters mostly full time party going Australians), but the best mix of backpackers was at Mr Mullets.

I was sorry to leave but I Will definitely go back.

Owing to the excellent reviews which this place got on trip advisor, we went to check it out. We were really surprised, though, to find the hostel rather dull and far too simplistic. The room that was shown to us, did not even have beds, just mattresses on the floor. There is no kitchen which guests can use and there also seem to be no common areas to sit and relax. Nevertheless, one has to say that it was clean and staff was friendly.
