Super great place has a great backpacking atmosphere. Hammocks in the center. We chose to go to seagull lodge north for our last two nights because we could get a private room with private bath for $10 more.


I liked this hostel a lot - The staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was relaxed. Dorm beds not the most comfortable as foam mattresses...good kitchen though DO NOT USE PATRICKS TOURS - he didnt turn up for a snorkelling tour, which was annoying as I only had one day so I could not book onto another one. No cancellation, no call, no apology The hostel should use other more reliable operators.


The credit card machine "was not working" which was a HUGE bummer, since as a traveler you budget accordingly so you don't have to carry a ton of cash on your own body, and we did NOT have the cash to pay (as we were expecting to pay with CC). There was no charging to the card on file, so we were forced to withdraw money from Belize Bank (lots of fees associated) without an apology or anything. The location is good. Cold showers. Wifi decent in common space. Nothing fancy - just a bed to sleep.

I know for the price that the accommodations are probably as good as you're going to get, but the atmosphere was lacking in any sort of community and it was hard to chat with people.


Cheap, very friendly and well located! Would recommend.
