Property Description

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.

    YellowBelly Hostel is an incredible hostel. Not only were the facilities plentiful, but they were also immaculately kept. The Beds, fans, toilets and showers left nothing to be desired. Our trip however, was really made by the Staff. Bubbles, Nel and Jessie somehow managed to treat you like a respected and appreciated customer, but also as a friend. No favour you could ask seemed too much and if you didn’t have any, you could count on bubbles to take you on a fun day out with the locals :)

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in! Bubbles, Nel and Jessiemile go above and beyond to make sure you’re happy. We booked the ATM tour through them and they gave us info that other tour operators didn’t. Bubbles joins in in the evening activities, giving us rum and taking us out to the best spots, he’s ace! Can’t recommend this place enough

    Wonderful vibe at this hostel, the staff are just A1. We met lots of friendly couples and solo backpackers. Kitchen is great for cooking, our private room was very comfortable and spacious and had AC. We booked our ATM tour through the hostel and got the most amazing guide. The staff here go above and beyond for you. I would highly recommend.

    For us this was a great place to be based for ATM caves which did through Jess, better price than we found elsewhere. Great atmosphere in the hostel and breakfast with a view and birds coming to say hello. An easy walk into town for some great street food with a nice uphill to work it off on the way back 😂. We’d stay again for sure.

    Can’t say more positive things about this place. It felt like home every time I walked through the doors. They helped me book multiple excursions and I really enjoyed the Mountain Pine Ridge Tour with Bubbles. It is up the hill from town but near a temple which is convenient. Town was nothing too exciting so it didn’t really matter. Would 100% recommend.

    I was sick while I was here and the staff were so nice and helpful. Rooms are nice, facility is cool. The only downside is it’s a walk to town but it’s only 10-15 minutes. A few corner stores are a few minutes away.

    I will start with the only negative. It's not the best location, as it's it's a 10-15 minute walk uphill from town. This is more than made up for, however, by the hosts, Jessie and Bubbles! This brother and sister duo are at the centre of all things Yellow Belly, and the first hosts I've spent time simply chatting to! Add to this a lovely common area, good kitchen facilities and spacious bathrooms that I never had to wait my turn for, and you have a great all rounder. Thanks J&B!
