Very relaxed, centrally located Los Amigos Isla de Flores May 27, 2010
The Hostel is a very nice and relaxed place to spend a few nights.

The Hostel features about 5 rooms with Dorm beds from 4 to 8 beds and bathroom/shower in the dorms. There are also a few private rooms, but without a private bathroom in them.

The Hostel also features a restaurant where only vegetarian food is served, but it is very good an the prices are OK.

The common area is a great place to hang out with the other travelers. It feels like hanging out in a jungle, as there are a lot of plants here. There are a lot of hammocks as well to relax and maybe read a book or two. There is free wireless internet, and a good library and game collection.

There are a few animals living on the grounds as well, a parrot, two dogs and a rather old cat.

They also offer trips to Tikal or bus tickets to most of the towns in Guatemala. So you can book it right at the hostel and you are being taken from the front door to your next destination.

Good stop off point between Tikal & Guatemala City May 31, 2010
Very Good hostel & stop off point between Guatemala City & Tikal, I originally planned to stay here for 1 night but ended up staying for 3. Very cool atmosphere, good place to meet like minded backpackers, Dvd player in the garden, bar & Kitchen open morning & night, also at reception you can book local tours & coach bookings. Sleeping... 8 bed dorms (mixed), Rooms for 2x people & hammoks. Dorm accom starts from £2-5. If I ever head back to Flores I will pay a visit to Los Amigos for sure.

Not so perfect... Dec 01, 2010
Hammock places cost 20Q, a dorm bed is 35Q. One of the most expensive in Central America. It is all about money, unfortunately, though I thought such violent capitalism is not possible if the owners are Dutch...

When we were there in Feb, 2010 the owner was busy throwing out a guy, who was organizing a group of travelers to go to El Mirador for real cheap. He explained that the Hostel also offers El Mirador trips, so it is against their business for anyone trying to organize it any other way...

A sad little speck on an otherwise really atmospheric hostel...

Hostel Los Amigos, Flores, Guatemala Oct 02, 2009
I have stayed here on 3 occasions. It is the the best of the cheap places to stay in Flores. At times there is free internet. The food is well above average for a hostel presentation and is vegetarian in orientation. There is a small library offering a limited book exchange. A bed in a dorm room is about $3.00 per night. There is a cheaper way to go, a hammock at about $2.00 per night. They offer box lunches, but at any price they are not worth the price. I bought a box lunch on my first visit and was disappointed when I pulled it out at Tikal. A soggy cheese sandwich on white bread and two pieces of old fruit. I have heard complaints about their box lunches during each of my stays. do not let the box lunch stories keep you from staying here, just don't buy a box lunch, plan ahead and acquire your picnic basket elsewhere. This is a very good and well managed hostel.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Feb 23, 2008
Check out the website for a full list of services, but there really is no reason to even step outside, as this place has everything you need. It's an all around great place to eat, drink, socialize, relax, sleep, etc...
