    Amazing place. The owner is an awesome person. It's beautiful, clean, and filled with great backpackers. Right next to some of the best coral I have seen. A block from a large grocery store. They will even let you rent a scooter which is absolutely a blast to get around the Island. Could not have enjoyed my stay here more. I am very well traveled. Highly recommend! Cheers. Enjoy.

    A classic backpackers hostel. Mel’s place is a great spot to base yourself for a few days (or longer!). The atmosphere is social and it’s easy to meet fellow travelers. The grounds are well maintained and rooms are delightfully unique. You can base yourself for dives here, too (they’ve got the hookup for discounts at local dive shops). The pool is the best part and is cool and relaxing after being out in the humid Honduran air for a few hours. Will be back!

    Lovely hostel. In a quiet location and really wonderful atmosphere. The staff is great and the grounds are more like a little hotel our home. My room was a single en-suite. comfy bed, very clean and well appointed! Pool was nice. I also really liked the restaurant. It’s run separately but next to the pool. The kitchen of Mels Diner is a loyal house kitchen. So it’s like a friend making dinner. She made traditional fish stew. Delicious and $6! This is a great place. I’ll be back

    Mel has an awesome hostel. Great atmosphere full of wonderful people. Mel is super helpful with local activities and where to go. Kitchen is very functional, rooms are clean and very nice. It is outside of West End, which is either good or bad - I found it good. Thank you Mel!!

    Only stayed for 2 nights but wish it was longer! The hostel has a great vibe with mostly solo travelers, fun place to hang out and chat. Great people! Nice location next to a supermarket and fruit stand and easy to catch taxis or buses right on the main road. Wouldn’t recommend the beach nearby but it is only a short ride to West End. The accommodation is a bit rustic, only got hot water once and Wifi did not reach to my room but the AC did work really well and was worth the extra $10.

    Mel is an excellent host that always has a great smile when you see her. I got to know the staff of the hostel very well and they were all great with recommendations of things to do and see on the island and the best way of getting places. There are good snorkeling spots withing walking distance and you can rent the equipment directly from the hostel, as well as a scooter or car if you want one! The place was always super clean, and the pool and Cafe on site were an added bonus.

    I really liked the hostel, nice facilities and staff. Lovely garden setting. 2 negatives though, you can only smoke near the common kitchen, as a smoker I dislike smoking where people are eating especially if they are nonsmokers. I would have appreciated being able to smoke near the pool area. Second, they offered taxi service from the airport for $15, but you can get a taxi for $5 If you walk to the gas station just across from the airport. I thought that was price gouging.

    $1 to west end where mostly everything happens. Good thing about this is that it’s closer to the dolphins. You get a private room but it’s like 1900s style and sometimes have cockroaches. Don’t go to Coxen hole, nothing really happens there but they have bojangles lol.
