    Awesome hostel, very chilled vibes. The owners are a young Belizeans couple who are super friendly and can help you organise anything in San Ignacio, plus you get to hang with some locals and learn more about Belize. The back deck is incredible for chatting, relaxing, reading, beers etc. Stayed here the two times I passed through San Ignacio and would've loved to have stayed longer!

    Fantastic hostel, and the best in San Ignacio from what I hear. CLEAN, great common areas, big private bathrooms, awesome attentive staff, nightly hangouts on the huge deck. They can also book ATM cave tours and shuttles anywhere you want to go. Made life very easy. Don’t hesitate to book!

    Me and my friend had an amazing time at Old house hostel. As 2 ladies travelling alone, we always felt safe and secure there. The hostel was clean and inviting. The owner and workers were very welcoming and helpful. We absolutely enjoyed our stay there and will definitely be back! We will also be sure to recommend the place to everyone we know. Thank you so much for having us!

    We stayed here on our way to see Tikal. It was in a great location and had a wonderful vibe. The staff was super friendly and suggested good places to eat. Everything is about a 4 minute walking distance.

    Really nice hostel to stay at- comfy beds and really nice big bathrooms to use. It has a really homely kind of vibe. The deck is awesome, you can hang out for some drinks or just chill and read. The vibe of the place really depends on who else is there, there were a couple of party nights while I was there. Easy walk from the bus stop and really close to all the restaurants in town. The ATM tour through the hostel was amazing, so would definitely recommend!
