The description for this hostel is absolutely spot-on! It *is* a gem and what makes it rank above so many other hostels out there is Jason, who was running the place when I was there in mid November. He has a wealth of good information, maybe dolling out more than the average person might need or want, but nonetheless, he takes customer service to a new level. He cares about his guests and enjoys sharing details on the area.
There are hammocks to relax on and stunning views of the surrounding mountains from the rooftop. The hikes to the neighboring villages are a must (especially on a clear day) and one can go alone as the trails are safe and the locals friendly.
There are an abundance of comedors to eat in town and of course Popi's has it's own attached restaurant as well. The apple pie is worth savoring, especially on a cold night sitting in front of the fireplace. Ah, bliss...
Make the effort to get here; you won't be disappointed if you are looking for a place "off that gringo trail," full of helpful, curious locals who won't treat you as "another damn tourist," with amazing 360 degree mountainous scenery everywhere you look.

Popi's is a gem in Nebaj. We not only have the best Apple pie, coffee, and food in town, but it is here that you will find the only dryer in Nebaj. That's right, if you want dry clothes, we are the place. We offer multiple rooms, both private and shared along with a central garden and indoor common space complete with a large fireplace and small stage where we host local performers.Being one of the few eclectic restaurants in town we get an interesting mix of expats, volunteers, Guatemalans, and wanderers every night; the conversation like our patrons are never dull at Popi's.We also offer guide services for all local treks, be they half day or 5 day adventures; we can accommodate you.We also offer English and Spanish classes in both group and 1 on 1 settings.Please note:Cancellation Policy: 48 hours before the arrivalCheck in: 12.00 noonCheck out: 11.30 amMethod of Payment upon the arrival: Cash only!Breakfast is not included.Taxes are included.
