    I will definitely be coming back to Sandbar when I return to Belize! I had so much fun here, it’s easily my favorite hostel that I’ve ever stayed in and booking extra nights was super easy. Free water and towels, GREAT a.c., staff is AMAZING and the owners are hands on which makes me want to support this business even more. The only thing I would say is the wifi kind of sucks, it’s hard to get signal in the rooms. Though, honestly the disconnect was really nice for me. 10/10 recommend. 🥰

    The room and bathroom were very clean and had great amenities! The AC was great: beautiful pool and cool atmosphere. Close to a ton of dive shops and restaurants/stores and town center!

    Sandbar is essentially one of the best places to stay if you are a backpacker and want to meet people travelling to Belize, the food there is really great along with a very cool bar setup. Its location is ideal with beach front and has a pool. The owners are really great people and when I was visiting provided any tips and info for things to do in San Pedro. Staff and bar tenders are super friendly as well. I really enjoyed my stay over there.

    This is a great place to stay in San Pedro! Great location, close to the port, right at the beach, with lots of places to eat within walking distance. Each dorm bed has individual electrical sockets, and the dorm rooms have AC! wifi was kinda iffy but mostly reliable. The restaurant downstairs serves delicious food. This is without a doubt the place to stay in San Pedro for travelers on a budget!

    A great stay at Sandbar! Keep in mind there is a restaurant/bar on the bottom that is open to the public, but many guests hang out here too. The on-site pool was an excellent benefit and a place to meet other guests. The dorms were upstairs, airconditioned, with curtains on every bunk. They also had assigned under-bed large lockers so make sure to bring a lock. Great value for money and in an ideal area of town with a corner store steps away and the main town center only a 5-minute walk!

    The hostel was nice and the atmosphere was good. The cleaning in the bathroom was not the best and there was not Wi-Fi in the rooms. However the Wi-Fi in the main area was good. Great location close to restaurants

    Warning to all travellers going to San Pedro. The island is ferociously expensive and doesn’t really cater for a backpackers budgets as it is more orientated to American families and retirees. Apart from great diving, the island doesn’t offer much else to do and if you can’t dive a PADI is a tasty $500 USD. The hostel was completely open to the public and felt more like some rooms on top of a restaurant. Quite drunk middle aged and elderly men would congregate in the bar and heckled my friend making her feel uncomfortable. Although staff witnessed this, they didn’t say or do anything apart from continue to serve him alcohol. This became more disconcerting as there was no lock on the dorm door so felt a bit unsafe. Part of the reason we were so disappointed was because the way the hostel is branded we expected it to have more of a party atmosphere but the reality was a church group and a baby despite the fact that it is listed as an adult only property. There was signs all around the pool stating “no children in the pool” but kids continued to use the facilities all day. This may not be an issue for some but is more symptomatic of the fact this is NOT a party hostel just a haunt of old creepy American expats. Pros of the property, free paddle boards, nice (if not expensive) food and a great snorkel guide Oscar. All in all, we would not recommend to the average backpacker unless mis-sold hostel and over priced experience is what you are looking for.
