Property Description

**Gold Standard Certified Accommodation**

Established in 2020, Yellow Belly Backpackers was created by backpackers, for backpackers and we pride ourselves on being a social, friendly, and comfortable place to stay.

We are located at the base of the Cahal Pech Mayan ruins, with views of the mountains surrounding San Ignacio, and are located less than a one minute walk from the nearest bus stop off the main highway. Just across the street is Victor Galvez Stadium, which has basketball courts, a football field, and a jogging track.

We offer dorm and private room accommodations, with or without AC, to fit your budget. We went the extra mile and custom built all of our beds, plus each bed comes with a quilted mattress topper for optimal comfort! All rooms share four individual bathrooms with hot and cold showers for added privacy. Enjoy the view of Victor Galvez Stadium and the Maya Mountains from our upstairs lounge!

    Absolutely such a good experience. Bubbles was able to answer all my questions which just made traveling solo a hundred percent easier. The rooms were clean and cozy. The balance of peacefulness and fun at night was there. The location of the hostel was also very convenient. Overall, I had a wonderful stay!

    Highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling in San Ignacio. The staff made the whole experience- helped us book tours, took us to Mountain Pine Ridge, and celebrated aBelizian holiday! If you have a chance to try Bubbles’ (the owner of the hostel) cooking, you will not be disappointed. We stayed for 4 nights and left feeling like family. PS. Bubbles if you’re reading this take a shot of rum

    We were so sad to leave Yellow Belly Backpackers. Bubbles and Jessii are amazing hosts. They gave us great tips for visiting the VERY nearby ruin, lent us bikes to go to the Saturday market, and helped us schedule a cave tubing tour. We spent a day of lockdown at Yellow Belly, and not leaving the hostel all day was actually amazing. The upstairs hang out room is such a lovely spot, and Bubbles went out of his way to keep us fed and happy during unusual circumstances. We can’t wait to come back!

    GREAT HOSTEL! Super clean and very spacious dorms! Owner does anything he can to help you: organise tours, transfers and he even took us kayaking. Amazing atmosphere! Common room is great for meeting people! It’s a bit out of the center but most buses stop nearby, so don’t get off on the main square! Definitely recommend this place!

    Nicest staff I’ve met, always happy to help. Bubbles is a straight chiller with lots of local knowledge. Also it was very very clean with an excellent laundry service. Beds super big and comfy also had AC in every room and the kitchen well stocked and showers were amazing

    Excellent hostel, Bubbles and the team couldn’t have been better. We booked ATM CAVES through them and ended up paying less with a private guide and enjoyed it so much! We then needed help with documents printing and they gave a great recommendation for Pops in town. We also had credit card issues which they helped us with! Couldn’t ask for more, we got off the bus too early so a walk up the hill and slightly out of town but right by the ruins with plenty restaurants around, papa Ben’s was great

    Would absolutely recommend staying here! The two nights my friends and I stayed here were my favorite of our trip. The atmosphere was very social and the facilities are nice, but lockers could be bigger and it’s not in the center of town. The other reviews don’t lie - the owner goes above and beyond to make it a great experience for everyone. He drove us to the market, took us to some Mayan ruins close by, and cooked a delicious meal for everyone for Garifuna settlement day.

    Came during the rainy season and thought I made a mistake. So glad I was wrong. Took the bus from Belize City and bust stop was one block away. Both of the host were very friendly and knowledgeable. Was able to see two of the Mayan ruins. Great experience.
