Mr. Mullets Hostel

Mr. Mullet's has some of the friendliest staff I've ever encountered in a hostel. The back patio with the bar, fireplace, and pool table are a nice touch. It's a great place to meet fellow travelers and enjoy San Pedro. The environment and location cannot be beat. Well worth a visit!

This is an amazing hostel with very friendly people! The dorms have big lockers, bed lights and your own plugs. The garden in the back is huge and with a campfire, picknicktable, pooltable, bar and a lot of seating make its all complete.
We had a great stay and very cheap as well.

Arrived to a mad party with friendly staff, cheap beer and free pool! Clean rooms, good lockers and a kitchen to use. Massive garden area, hot showers. You will not regret! Best kept secret of San Pedro!

Mr. Mullets is your standard hostel when it comes to rooms and bathrooms. The accomadations are basic, but comfortable. The thing that makes this hostel a special place is the staff and the amazing bar/patio/backyard/roof top.

The staff are very laid back and even more approachable. They are more than willing to help you get aquainted and feel comfortable in San Pedro. My friends and I had just come from a nightmare experience at another hostel in the area, and were so relieved to find a freindly and supportive staff at Mr. Mullets.

The backyard area of the hostel is great. The have a bar with pool table and picnic tables to lounge at. They also serve fantastic bloody mary's at the bar, which is something I didn't realize I missed from home until I had one. The yard and roof top area also has fanstatic views of San Pedro and Lago Atitlan. It's a great atmosphere for backpackers and it makes it very easy to meet other travelers.

I really enjoyed my time at Mr. Mullets, and couldn't ask for much more out of a cheap place to stay. It's a backpackers hostel and you should know this going into it. If you're a resort/hotel kind of person you may find problems with it. If your backpacking and not overly concerned with having every comfort of home, you will love it.

An awesome staff, good beds, always clean, cheap, and a pool table!! Had one of the best moment in Guatemala there. You can ask everything and they'll try to give you the best advice. Try the Mullet and get 1 night free there ;)

The people who are giving this hostel positive reviews are the ones who stay there to get wasted every night and some stay for weeks not doing anything else but getting smashed everyday. We stayed only one night in a filthy private room which we had pre-booked and got the hell out of there the next day. The private rooms face onto the bar so you have no choice but to party - ok for one night but if you actually want to do something the next day rather than being hung over all the time this place is probably not for you. The common areas (ie the bar and garden) has dog poo and cigarette butts everywhere - and the staff seem to be too wasted to worry about the place at all. There are so many better options close by that are clean and comfortable and some have stunning balcony views FOR THE SAME PRICE!!!

very nice clean hostel with good beds [hard to find in guatemala]. they have one very small dog, who is fun to be around, a nice bar area and they do some good parties that are always out of the hostal early enough for those who want to sleep early. highly recommended, unless your a cranky old brit who needs to sleep too early in which case i would reccomend a 5 star hotel or maybe an old folkes home...
keep up the good work!!!
