    I loved this hostel! Awesome terrace, plenty of space in the dorms and lovely staff. Definitely a good stopping point if you're planning on heading to Belize!

    Super hostel in chetumal. Run by really friendly folks. Nice dorms and private rooms and a wonderful roof patio. Perfect for travelling to Belize or checking out Chetumal, it's close to many things, like the mayan museum, malecon and avenida de heroes. We wish Frank and Veronique great luck with the hostel.

    10/10! They're really working on the property, a terrace upstairs which is AWESOME! We were there during the pandemic, and so only a couple of other guests. The town is TO DIE FOR, the people sweet, but most everything closed. Lots of places to eat, and the places we were recommended were TOPS! I can imagine spending a few days here, they have bikes to rent and all the mod-cons except a pool. I don't see this town as being a 'stand alone' destination, but definitely cool stop along the journey

    This is the third time I stay here, my first in a private room due to the virus measures and the remodel looks real nice. Daniel is a great and very friendy host. Loved how the kitchen was expanded threefold by the remodel. I would definitely stay here again!

    This was one of the least favourite hostels I've stayed in over the years. They had free drinking water which was great, but other than that it was very minimal and basic. There wasn't even soap in the shared dorm bathroom. I was only staying one night so it did the trick, it's just not somewhere I would think to tell friends and family about, you know?

    It's a good hostel. Night time dog barking seems to never stop, kind of annoying. WiFi signal comes and goes. Beds in dorms have no personal light and no shelves.

    Well maybe it was bad time of the year, but the place was very lonely, the location is a bit far from any fun activities. And the place was very hot and not the best cleaning

    I didn’t like staying here and was glad it was only for the night. The water pressure was poor or there was no water at all. Don’t recommend this place at all unless there is nothing else available
