    The location is incredible. We loved hanging out in the hammocks and on the deck chairs. They give you the chance to book tours through them and it is cheap and convenient. We loved the snorkeling in Shark Ray Alley. The rooms are nice and cool and the beds are comfortable. The staff was super kind and helpful.

    I couldn't have picked a better place to stay than Sandbar. Convenient to all the fun San Pedro has to offer, and even snorkeling trips from their dock. And I enjoyed interacting with guests from 5 other countries. The on-site restaurant is casual (open-air and mismatched furniture), yet it offered some of the best food I had all week!

    The Sandbar is a great hostel for those who want to a comfortable place to sleep, food options and a helpful staff. A close walk to some of the best bars on the Island, you will be able to get everywhere you need to without having to rent a golf cart. The staff at the reception desk and bar are friendly and helpful. As a bonus, the food is delicious and more than fairly priced. First time to Belize and will definitely stay here again when I return.

    Awesome privacy and AC in the dorms. Disliked the style of lockers (under the bunks), our bags were getting damaged dragging them on the floor getting them out of the locker. We just put our money, passports and electronics in there and kept our big pack in the bunk with us. The one thing I wish it had was more common space, there was some at the restaurant, but not enough for the amount of people staying there. Loved the loungers on the dock! Overall this was a great hostel, would recommend!

    Bathrooms weren’t clean... but overall, we had an amazing stay at Sandbar. Love that place and strongly recommend staying there! Don’t book activities through the hostel/kiosk in the main room. Their boats are very small, they didn’t really care for us while snorkeling, and they aren’t a PADI or RSI center but offer diving courses...

    This hostel looks very promising online and it was not a bad place to stay, but it is not as amazing as other reviews make it seem. The location is good and the food at the restaurant was good (although a little over priced). They offer a refrigerator to store food and a microwave to use. However, the microwave was inside the restaurant kitchen so it was very awkward to use. Just a very average hostel

    Overall, better than I expected! I would recommend this hostel. That being said, since it’s a restaurant/bar there are people coming and going all day and night, and the outside door to the dorms only locks after midnight. People staying at the hostel are given wristbands, but that’s not a very effective method...I still felt safe, but security was lacking. In addition, construction right next door (hammering, drilling, etc.) started at 650am EVERY DAY!!! Wish they waited until later in the day.
