This was one of my favourite places to stay in central america. The owner Sophie is absolutely lovely and always smiling. She arranged a big hostel BBQ one of the nights and I spenty many happy hours relaxing with the other guests on the deck in the hammocks under the fairy lights. I used the kitchen to cook with no problems and there are lockers in the room. It is slightly further away from the main stretch - good as not noisy but bad if you have to walk on your own in the dark


5 min walk to beach, close to the ATM, has a clean/chill kitchen/lounge as well as a breezy rooftop filled with hammocks.


Great atmosphere, lovely communal kitchen and living area! Lockers are provided in the dorms and there is great security at night, which was comforting. It is a 5-10 minute walk from the beach but this is no problem, even after dark and the petrol station is close if you need water or food. Not super cheap by Honduran standards, but nothing is on Roatan!


We had an awesome experience staying here. Originally planned on 3 nights but ended up staying 4 because it was so great. Special thanks to Matthew for being so friendly and accommodating! We will definitely recommend this place.


I spent 4 days in La Buena Onda, and everything was perfect. Matt runs the hotel and he's a great host, really friendly. The place is really quiet and clean, the wifi is good enough and the location is very good too just takes a 10 minutes walk to get to West End main area.
