Hostelz.com's Review
Cafe Atitlan has a great location right in the heart of everything. It is a more quiet hostel and has a very settled ambiance. It is not a raging party house where you will meet a stack of people; it is a very relaxed and settled environment. The party is always right round the corner if that is what you are looking for, and what is best is that you have somewhere quiet to come back to, relax, and get a decent nights sleep.

The Location

Cafe Atitlan is right in the heart of the main walkway throughout San Pedro La Laguna. It is central to all of the bars, cafes, and action within the town.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Cafe Atitlan is located out the back of the Cafe Atitlan restaurant. They have three levels of rooms, with the dorm rooms on the first two levels. They have two different types of dorms for different prices -- dorm rooms with a private bathroom and dorm rooms with shared bathrooms outside of the room. The shared bathroom is quite large, modern, and clean, so they are perfectly good to use if you are looking at the cheaper option. The showers are also equipped with hot water.

Common Spaces

The main common space in Cafe Atitlan is the rooftop terrace, which is quite spacious and contains a lot of tables and chairs with umbrellas where you can sit and enjoy the view of the mountains and the lake. You can access free Wi-Fi from here and any other point within the hostel at your convenience. On the second floor, you will find a small table and some chairs that can offer you a bit of peace and quiet indoors out of the sun. They also have a bookshelf on this floor with some books that you can read or trade. If you would like to eat a meal, they have a great cafe with good quality and well-priced food -- you can sit here and hang out and enjoy a more social atmosphere if you like. They do not have a communal kitchen here, so this is the easiest option for meals during your stay at the hostel.


This hostel would be an especially good choice if you are studying and need a chilled-out environment to concentrate.
