A few buddies and me stayed here for a few days over christmas after we found that everything in flores was completely booked. The los amigos hostel website never seemed to work either and everytime we called no one picked up. As it turns out it was a blessing in disguise...
It was a little daunting at first because the hostel was actually in san miguel across the lake, but we emailed the hostel owner and he responded incredibly fast actually on how to get here. It was something like 2 quetzales (25 cents american or so) ride on these cool little ferries operated by the locals to get across the lake and the view was awesome!
The hostel itself was really cool and had a lot of space to chill and relax. It had a sweet pool and we met some cool people while we stayed here. Neil, the hostel owner also helped us out with some cool stuff to do in the area. I would definitely recommend it if you are passing through flores on your travels in central america.
p.s. Neil and his wife have some amazing coffee!
