Location is perfect on the lake
Wifi didn't work
rooms a little bit cramped in the 7 bed dorm
amaizing location, good-looking cabanas, garden, clean lagune
expensive kayaks and boat-trip (much more cheaper in the port),they didnt refill water for 2 days, every day same breakfast, strange hotel policy(you cant stay in their area in lagune 2 hours after check-out (waiting on bus), unfriendly receptionist(young guy, maybe owner), wifi only in reception
Good Location, nice private rooms, good place to meet travellers, great dock for tanning and swimming, clean bathrooms, hot water, free drinking water, perfect common areas, well kept large yard and gardens, lots of options for tours, and renting kayaks, lots of lizards and frogs, we saw a basilisk.
Kayak rentals were a bit expensive, two people in one kayak is the same price as 2 people in two kayaks? Internet was pretty horrible most of the time, not close to any restraunts, we stayed for 4 nights breakfast was small and never changed corn tortillas, beans and eggs. (The small amount of eggs was tasty though)
Wonderful hostel, exceptionally clean and quiet. Staff is friendly and helpful, the location on the lagoon is beautiful. I never write reviews but they deserve one. 10/10, would go again.
The bikes are in a terrible state but it's still good fun, just be aware.
The location is amazing but its not like on the photos. Its still good, breakfast is good, enough hammocks and a quiet area on the lagune.
Its not like on the photos but still good enough. Wifi only at the reception area, restaurant never has whats on the menu but if u r hungry they still make u something good even if the kitchen is already closed.
Location directly on the lagoon, they are a Eco friendly hostel
Too hot during the night as the private cabanas are located on the first floor under the roof
excellent location, very quiet and familiar.
The wild style of the property, so peaceful and simple. Great to relax after noisy cities
The bed cover smelt dusty but i guess it is because of the roof which is made of palm leaves.
Staff were very helpful and friendly and offered lots of advice. We very nearly missed our bus but the owner jumped in to action and drove a big group of us to the station in the back of his jeep! They also stayed up to welcome us when we arrived at 11pm. Staff really bend over backwards for you. Beautiful location - right on the water. Sail boats, kayaks, bikes etc available to rent at good prices. Good breakfast too! Especially for the price you're paying. Accommodation is pretty rustic - either tent, dorm or very basic private room. But the facilities and location are great for the price you're paying. Taxi from ado station should be 20pesos. All-in-all, very good value for money.
Mosquitoes! Sort of linked to location (I.e. Near water etc) but they could do with more preventative measures.
Perfect location with private dock on the laguna, lovely setting and thoughtfully decorated, very helpful staff, nice and cheap food offered to guests
WiFi only in common area. A few more bathrooms could be useful as well.
Everything was great. Clean dorms. Mosquito nets provided. Location right on the lake! Wifi worked. Bathrooms were clean. Everything was set up open air style but still clean and tidy.
The bathroom had weird pictures of clowns. But seriously, that's the only thing I didn't love. You should stay here.
The stay here was very peaceful and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful and provided many was to experience the amazing lagoon and the very tranquil town of Bacalar. When I go back to Bacalar, which will be very soon, I will stay here again.
Very loud-party nearby, a lot of families with children.isla aguada us nit the most beautiful place, dirty beach.
Great location and very friendly staff!! Everything was very well maintained. Nice place to relax and meet other travelers.
The double room was really dark and quite over priced for what it was.
The whole set out of this hostel is awesome, great breakfast included and facilities very clean
very close to the lagoon
the private rooms are not really private, as they are directly above the dorms where you can hear everything. No possibility to sit comfortably in the private rooms. Shared rooms were very busy because it was raining heavily.
The location was great and the staff was nice and helpful. They also did a great job of keeping the facilities very clean.
The bedding that was provided for the tent was very uncomfortable, so bring your own. Also, they will overcrowd the tenting area. Our tent was a foot away from another couple's tent, it was awkward.
This place is really "magic" for backpackers. - the staff is incredible ; they will do as much as they can to help you to accomodate your needs. - the location front of the beach is a dream
Very nice athmosphere and friendly staff.
The tours with Katamaran & Kayak were too expensive compared to the prices in the village. The Kayak tours are difficult to plan with the times, as they go pretty far and when runnig out of wind often come back late at night... not a real safe feeling.
Thank you for Sylvia and the crew for making our stay so special. Our little hippy room was amazing and very comfortable, toilets and showers were immaculate and really cute too. Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed the boat trip in the afternoon. Extremely helpful staff, excellent vibes, highly recommended!
very helpful staff, in the dorm next to the lagoon was enough space for the logage and had a frige inside...they offer nice daytrips and great food any time of the day( unfortunatly its nowhere written what u could have or when...but ull hear about it)
they didnt inform us, that it is possible to book a dorm without breackfast and pay less...
