Hummingbird Hostel was born early in 2016, when the owner, Katy, fell in love with Lake Atitlán, its people and its stunning beauty. The idea was to create a small, homely budget hostel with tasty, sustainable, locally sourced food, good vibes and great conversation. We have space for a maximum of 11 guests, at any one time.
We’re huge animal lovers here at Hummingbird Hostel, so expect to meet our lovely, friendly dog, Fiver, his gorgeous little sister, Kowok and our 4 cats: Dave, Hazel, Snowy and Tiger.
Hummingbird Hostel is less a traditional backpackers hostel and more of a homestay. Our tiny kitchen is not open to guests – there simply isn’t enough space. But we do provide the option of a wholesome breakfast and a hearty dinner and we’ll usually be able to find a corner of the fridge to store the odd thing or two for you should you need it. You’ll find more Hummingbird menu details and prices right here and if you have any questions, just ask!
We’ve got a shaded yoga deck, daybeds and hammocks strung up so you can either stretch and energise or completely relax. You can help yourself to any books lying around or go ahead and enjoy the best wi-fi connection in the village.
We offer an in-house laundry service and all day coffees, teas, smoothies and snacks. Our kitchen is fully vegetarian.
Our super comfortable beds have brand new orthopaedic mattresses and our rooms are clean and pleasant, what’s more, each bed has its own bedside lamp. You can check out prices and photos right here.
Fancy a tour? Mountain hike? Visit to a local permaculture project? We can organise it! And as fellow travellers, we can share countless hints and tips to make your visit to Lake Atitlán a rich, cultural experience. Check out our Superhost status on Airbnb and our reviews on TripAdvisor or even better, come and try a bit of Hummingbird goodness for yourself 🙂
