"The hammocks in the big old tree are perfect for chilling. The breakfast with selfmade cake and marmelade was very good."

Liked: The hammocks in the big old tree are perfect for chilling. The breakfast with selfmade cake and marmelade was very good.

Disliked: In the second bathroom everything was leaking (sink, shower, main water switch). But they started with renovation in a few room, so it will be fixed in the future(hopefully).

Liked: it is a very nice place with a huge garden, swimming pool, air-condition, etc..... - although we booked dorm and other guest were around we had our room for ourself.

Disliked: the rooms would need a new design (especially painting), the staff could show a little bit more interest in the guests....

Liked: The place is huge, which means if music or people are being loud in the common area then you can hear nothing from the rooms! You also have control over the air conditioning in your room, so can have it the temperature you want and on when you want it on. The facilities are great - pool table, table tennis, swimming pool, relaxing garden with hammocks and a great big kitchen to use. The staff are really nice and helpful.

Disliked: Nothing! :)

Liked: This hostel has a great pool, heaps of space, good kitchen and dining area, good breakfast and ok rooms. From what I saw probably one of the best options in town and a short walk from the ruins. The walk from the bus station is a good 15 mins but it isn't that bad, Amd it a whole lot more scenic than most bus station to hostel walks.

Disliked: Staff seemed a bit disinterested but nothing really to dislike about the place.

Liked: Los chicos que llevan el hostel son muy agradables. Los entornos que tiene y algunos de los servicios (piscina, sala de juegos, sala de TV, el jardín...) está todo súper cuidado. El desayuno es genial!! Tiene agua caliente, un punto importante a su favor

Disliked: La distancia a recorrer desde la terminal de ómnibus hasta el hostel, si se va muy cargado se hace más larga de lo que es... mejor ir en taxi.

Liked: The pool was AMAZING! Big, clean and well kept. Huge garden with swings, see-saws etc. Lovely big lounge/dining area.

Disliked: Lockers needed in the dorms or reception area, even if they´re little ones for just valuable, rather than your whole bag. There´s enough space for them after all!

Liked: Lovely clean large pool. Friendly staff and guests. Communal cooking and definitely the huge shared BBQ on our last day. Great proximity to the Jesuit Ruins (hard not to be in such a small town!)

Disliked: Unavailability of taxi's from bus station (needed to walk in in the 40C heat)and expensive when we caught one the day we left.

City break
Romantic getaway

15 September 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We stayed in a 4 bed dorm the first night, the beds were fine and the room was spacious but the ensuite bathroom was pretty bad. There was a terrible smell in it the whole time. We moved to the private double ensuite the following night as we decided to stay two days instead of one in San Ignacio. There's not a whole lot to do there other than the ruins which are very interesting and definitely worth a visit! The private double room was much nicer, it was like being in a different hostel! Towels, comfy bed, tv, clean(ish) bathroom and hot shower! Location is excellent!

Disliked: The staff were not very approachable. It seemed to us like their friends were there all the time as there was always a group of at least 4 people hanging around at the reception desk chatting, drinking, together etc. It did seem a little intimidating at times. There was one male and one female staff member that were friendly and helpful. Very little english though so was difficult at times! Breakfast was terrible. Cold, chewy burnt toast, coffee and cake!
