Pause was a good, cheap stay, and the owner is really nice and helpful. We did have a problem with flees in the bed because of all the cats though, but other than that it was OK. It's on the other side of the island, but since everything is so close it's not a problem.

The owner is a very sweet woman who cares a lot about animals. There are a ton of cats and dogs on the property but they are mild tempered and not at all near the sleeping quarters. There is no kitchen to use and there is only cold water in the shower, but that seems common on the island. Some more attention could be paid to the condition of the room. There is a lot of water damage and some mold. But that is really the only complaint. I felt safe there and had a great time!
+ Hostel supports worthy cause of animal rescue + Location is good, close to everything in the centre of Caye Caulker + Nice deck over the water accessible for guests - Leaking ceiling in room when raining - No door, only curtain to bathroom/toilet - Smell of cat urine in yard outside room (owner cleans the area, but many loose cats) - Cracks in walls and supporting columns - Owner was away and nobody was aware of our reservation when we arrived - Potts and pans, but no cooker in room
A very relaxing hostel with only a few rooms. It is also great if you dont really like cats and dogs. Even if there are many around, you dont have them in your room and they behave very well! We really enjoyed our three days there. For more information and pictures check out www.bobaroundtheworld.com.
We had a great five days staying here -- two of us in the three-bed dorm. You need to be aware that the facilities are fairly basic, that the place is quiet (not a party/meet-people location), and that there are lots of cats and dogs around. But if that's all fine for you, then you'll love it here. The backyard is great for sitting around in a sunbed on a lazy day. The jetty is nice for sunset. The area is quite private and not too noisy. It was all very relaxing. Thanks, Madi!
