The guys there are just the best, they know how to take care of their guests, I had the best time and the place is really magical.
The place is very well localized. It faces the lake and has a pier. The sunrise is awesome and the colors of the lake and sky at sunset are amazing! The breakfast is not big but is very tasty. The best breakfast in México! Nice rooms and clean bathrooms. They rent kayaks, and I believe everybody should try it. Kayaking in that lake is one of the best experiences I've had in Mexico! You should ask the staff about the places to visit.
The wi-fi zone is small and it was very hard to connect. I gave up...
access to the lagoon, toilets and shower are really clean, a futon in the tent, a water tank for free, open kitchen, wifi at the reception
shower is a nest of mosquitos, a bit expensive for sleeping in a tent, cat mewls really loudly (well that's amazing) in front of the tents several times during the night. Tents are next to the open kitchen and next to the toilets/showers, so if you need a deep sleep, you will have perhaps to reconsider it and take a dorm (which looked great from outside)
I do not have a bad word to say about this place. It's like perfection and certainly a very magic place. I only wish I'd had longer
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.
