It is a pretty and capably run hostel. There is a computer in the office that clients can use. They have a laundry service (Q10/lbs) and will brew a nice cup of coffee for a few coins. Katrina, the friendly Mayan lady, speaks some English and understands quite a lot, as do her daughters. There is a nice terrace with lake view, drinking water, and plenty of seating, but it's not a bar. My single room was on the small as side, but well appointed with table and chairs. There is a fan and a small tube TV. The bathroom is clean. All rooms have private bathrooms.
This area is a few minutes away from the Santander Road and the shops and restaurants there, but surrounded by restaurants and mini markets.
To get to the supermarket is a 15-minute walk up Grand Ave, right around the corner. You are literally steps from the lake and one of the docks.
This place is in generally great shape and with the addition of bug screens would qualify for a very well recommended hostel.More
