    Hostel is located near a co-working coffee shop with fast wifi & a close walk to the beach. The property is located near a grocery store that accepts credit cards and local restaurants that serve $1 baleadas. The hostel owner is friendly and will help you negotiate local prices.

    A lovely place to stay. You can tell that Mel really cares about her hostel and has spent a lot of time adding things and making it feel relaxing and comfortable. Before I arrived Mel sent an email with lots of great information, including a guide with local info and things to do on Roatan. I stayed in a private room with a bathroom which was comfortable and clean. Shared space was great with a kitchen and pool, which was super refreshing on a hot day! Close to grocery store and snorkeling :)

    אתחיל מזה שמל (בעלת ההוסטל) מדהימה! עזרה לי בהכל, לימדה אותי איך לנסוע בזול במוניות שיתופיות (וברואטן תמיד מנסים לעקוץ תיירים), שלחה אותי לחופים הכי יפה על האי שאנשים פשוט לא מכירים ופשוט דאגה להכל! אווירה הכי טובה שיש, אנשים מדהימים! מתנדבים מקסימים שכיף לדבר איתם, לצאת איתם ולבלות איתם המקום נקי ונמצא במיקום ממש טוב (5 דק נסיעה מהווסט אנד, עולה 20 למפירה) יש בריכה שווה שכיף להתפנן בה קיצור ההוסטל המושלם ברואטן. מומלץ בחום!

    Mel is great! I enjoyed my time very much, with having a little social, as well as having my privacy and personal time. The food there was good, had a couple breakfast's there, and coffee is fresh every morning. It's a few minutes walk from the beach to catch a great sunset. I would stay again!

    Amazing hostel and great staff. Close to a supermarket and a good baleada food place. The bus that goes to west end and west bay pass next to the hostel, so great location. Definitely a great deal 🔥.

    Pros: - Mel provided incredible information in her Hostel Guide that helped us make the most of our time in Roatan. Additionally when we set out to do a drive around the island, she provided helpful details on how to best get around. - The volunteers were massively helpful/communicative via the hostel Whatsapp - LOVED the grounds - lots of intentional tropical plants/flowers Cons: - Our kitchen could have used a counter wipe prior to arrival - Wish we could have paid in card! Cash/Lempira only.

    I wasn’t given the room I reserved and paid for, was told there was a hot/cold shower- there was no hot water. Pillows smelled terrible, no windows to shut with holes in the screens so I was eaten by mosquitos all night. Given a room right next to the hang out/bon fire area, so it was loud and Smokey in my room all night, when they go to bed no one puts out the fire and it’s not safely enclosed so I had to use my own drinking water to put out the fire myself when I wasn’t using it.

    Although I made a good friend with one of the volunteers the place is absolutely awful. Stuffs went missing from my SINGLE ROOM.luckily the valuable stuff the thief though he/she stolen was with me and he ended up with contact lenses and fews earrings from h&m. Food were also missing were anybody felt free to use mine in the kitchen. Shouldn’t be called an hostel but pensioners place as as you are allow to smoke in one place and not talk to each other without another volunteer complaining.
