    You don't need to stay anywhere else in San Ignacio! Impeccably clean, Amazing friendly staff, cool set up and lots of communal areas. 5 mins walk to Cahal Pech ruins, 10 mins walk to Cahal Pech resort where you can use pools all day for 10BZD. 2 mins to restaurants and supermarcado. 15 mins walk to downtown. Lots to do and a nice vibe. Beds were super comfortable, individual fans and charging station as well as night lights. I didnt stay in the AC room but fan rooms great! I will return!

    Superbly ran hostel. Incredibly friendly staff who went out their way to help at every opportunity- even getting some aloe vera leaves to help with our sunburn. Laid back atmosphere. Good kitchen, hangout area outside with hammocks. Beers/ soft drinks on sale in reception. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Stay here.

    Great hostel with amazing staff! The hostel is located a little out of town but very close to the Cahal Pech ruins. We had no AC in our room, but each bed had a fan which was good. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend!

    Yellow Belly Backpackers is a great hostel with comfy rooms (we stayed in the 6 bed AC dorm), large communal spaces, clean bathrooms and friendly staff. It's a great place to meet other backpackers and explore the local area. Special thanks to Lucelli for helping us to plan our trip to Xunantunich and to Bubbles for keeping everyone entertained on an evening with social activities.

    This hostel is great. My friends and I stayed in San Ignacio for 3 days and two nights and Jesse made sure our stay was awesome! The hostel was very clean at all times including shared spaces like the kitchen and bathrooms. We stayed in the dorms and they were very neat. Theres no privacy curtains on bunks but they all have chargers and fans. The locations is right near a bus stop so it’s very easily accessible from public transportation but the hostel itself is a ways from the city center.

    I enjoyed my stay in this hostel and the staff was truly excellent. A word of caution however.. if you wake up in the middle of the night and have to use the bathroom, you may feel like you are alone in a giant haunted house in the middle of nowhere. But otherwise, everything was great.
