Hosteltipps in Central America

Country City Hostel My review Link
Mexico Cancun Mezcal Amazing hostel with breakfast, pool, hammocks and dinner. Nice vibes. Location is not in the zona hotelleria but the beach can be reached by a short bus ride.
Mexico Valladodid Hostel Candelaria In the middle of the town – nice garden with well maintained bathrooms. Great breakfast – dorms are simple with mainly bunkbeds.
Mexico Merida Nomadas Hostel Superb hostel! Spacious dorms, huge pool area and offers for cooking classes. Location with walking distance to all attractions.
Mexico Campeche Viatger Inn Really new and modern hostel – appereance was actually more like a hotel than a hostel. Very central location and little kitchen for self cooking.
Mexico Palenque Yaxkin Reviews of this hostel were really bad. From my point of view not okay. It is not one of the best hostels I have ever been in but okay to stay 1-2 nights in the jungle. Beds are really simple – showers suffer a bit from beeing in the jungle.
Mexico San Cristobal Puerta Vieja Central location, great breakfast, nice atmosphere – tours for the canyon and the villages also good value for money. Nice staff.
Mexico Bacalar Yaxkin Simple hostel to stay for one or two nights. Breakfast really simple – Location in the middle of the city. Transport to private beach offered.
Guatemala Lago Atitlan – Santa Cruz La Iguana Perdida Perfect spot to relax and chill – at the lake with lots of hammocks, amazing dinner (even if it is a bit pricy). No WiFi makes you think about reading or doing other things. Diving school in the hostel was a plus for me.
Guatemala Antigua Three Monkeys Guesthouse Very social hostel. If you book don’t choose the super cheap dorms as they are pretty tiny without bathrooms. All in all nice location, well maintained and good vibe. Kitchen helps to travel on budget.
Guatemala Semuc Champey GreenGo’s My favourite hostel in Guatemala – that’s why I stayed and worked there. Nice vibe, great surrounding, friendly staff and superb kitchen!!!
Guatemala Flores Los Amigos Nice oriental atmosphere, very social evenings, well maintained facilities and good food.
