Los Amigos is a well-run hostel in Flores with an excellent restaurant attached. It's a perfect place for backpackers with a pleasant outside area with hammocks as a location to mix with fellow travellers. You can also book trips to various locations including nearby Tikal for the same price as the tour operators elsewhere on the island. However, we didn't find Los Amigos a quiet place to sleep - there was the tail-end of the nocturnal revellers noisily turning in for the night around 1am or so, and then the early risers for the dawn trip to Tikal noisily waking up around 4am. Overall, Los Amigos is great for travellers looking for a sociable time, but not for those wanting to retreat antisocially to the tranquility of their room.
