We stayed two nights in a private double room in Los Amigos on route from Guatemala City to Belize (of course taking in Tikal while we were there). We arrived early (in time for breakfast) on the first day and then spent the day chilling out in the little oasis that Los Amigos is.
The hostel had a great atmosphere and we found ourselves going little further. We did have a wander around Flores, but found it fairly uninspiring. The food in the onsite restaurant (all vegetarian) was fantastic; really tasty and filling.
The staff were very helpful in advising on travel to Tikal and onwards into Belize (which call all be booked through them). Check out their website; it really helped us when planning our travels in this region.
