    Can’t rate this highly enough. I even left something at the hostel and Davina personally made sure that it was shipped to me in Caye Caulker which was amazing. Everyone stay here!!

    Easily the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were great to talk too and had loads of recommendations and other all just so friendly. They helped make the trip to San Ignacio that much better. The kitchen and decks were perfect after a long day exploring. The cat and dog were gorgeous and friendly too and were very comforting when I was missing home.

    Wonderful hostel in a remodeled hacienda with incredible attention to detail boasting a huge beautiful terrace. Great atmosphere and staff, located in the heart of San Ignacio. Only minus is the missing AC as it can get very hot in San Ignacio. Nonetheless this is THE place to go for backpackers that travel through San Ignacio.

    Smallest 4 bed dorm I have ever seen, which had a door that doesn’t shut properly, and there was a party going on outside the door until 3:30 in the morning. The street is so loud as well- the building is on a hill so the cars are so loud going up the road

    Hostel is in a great location in San Ignacio. Facilities are a bit outdated just as the name of the hostel suggest. Great place if you need a bed for a night. Would not recommend long stay unless you want to live like a backpacker. They do offer tours but I didn’t book with them. No a/c all fans. Nice front and rear porch to hang out on with good views of the city. Beds are so so and have lockers below. Big kitchen and water available for $1 a bottle refill.
