Diving Lake Atitlán
Went for the scuba diving, amazing staff and a great dive experience. Dive instructor was awesome and very helpful, making the experience that much better. Everyone was friendly and the food was better than expected, with the communal dinners being quite good. Little noisy into the evening and at night but not bad enough that it's difficult to sleep.

A pretty place but lacking some care
The hostel itself looks lovely and welcoming when you first arrive. The staff are friendly and helpful and the place has a lovely peaceful air to it. The family dinners were also well run and lovely getting everyone together at big tables. The longer I stayed the more issues came to light though. They are small things but make a world of difference. 1. Our room had no door handle which was painful when there's two people and it will swing open if you don't lock it from the inside or outside. 2. Showers were lukewarm at best and the weather here just isn't warm enough to make that a nice experience. 3. Food in the restaurant was average and my order was forgotten or mixed up frequently. 4. Room just wasn't comfortable. There was no where to hang wet towels, bed was like a rock and walls were paper thin to the room above and next to us.

The hotel was comfortable, relaxing, with great food. The staff is amazing. It’s a bunch of volunteer Travelers that stay for 6 weeks or more. They create an very cool vibe.

La Iguana is a melting pot of travelers from all across the lake and a great place to stay for one night or one month. The staff is wonderful, the food is delicious, and the Saturday night “family dinners” are an experience I will never forget!

Private room lovely room, buzzing environment
I stayed in a lovely private room with a balcony overlooking the lake. But there are many different options and ways to travel which would make your experience very different. This is a hostel, so it's busy and buzzing, the restaurant generally packed and you can't even get hot water before 8am, so not great for a morning coffee drinker. The staff are super busy, but very friendly and the atmosphere is nice. The yoga classes are lovely and the location for Santa Cruz ideal.
