Property Description

Roatan Backpackers' Hostel is a small, friendly hostel with a mix of dorm, private single and double rooms, and apartments. The hostel has a communal kitchen, a cafe open during high season, and a lovely pool and patio area. Please make sure you are aware that we are located in Sandy Bay, which is about 4 km from West End ($1 in bus, around $2-$5 per person in a shared taxi). We have a grocery store in walking distance, several comedores (local eateries) and a few restaurants (Pirate's Den, Cafe 314) close by. Other things in walking distance are the botanical gardens, the dolphins at Anthony's Key, water access for great snorkeling, and a couple of dive shops, as well as numerous volunteer opportunities such as the SOL Foundation community centre, Clinica Esperanza, and several schools. Hostel guests receive a discount with a couple of dive shops as well as with a zipline.
If you want to be right in the touristy hub, please to select a place that is in West End- don't choose a spot in Sandy Bay and then put a low score for location.

Mel was super awesome and friendly. I had my own lil shipping container room, it was comfy and clean. she was great at giving me the low down on the area and provided anything you could want. the price was amazing for what I got, the pool was super dope and the hostel dog, Watchy, was adorable. Best Hostel experience I've had since travelling Honduras. if you're landing in Roatan do yourself a favour and post up here for a few nights.

The beds are very comfortable in the dorm rooms, each has its own fan. The hostel is beautiful and they have cute cats and dogs. Good location next to a supermarket and easy transportationwise. The big minus about this hostel was that there was a group who seemed to be staying long-term. They had taken over the terrace ( the only common area there is) and they are heavy smokers. So it was impossible to be in the common areas and the thick smell of cigarettes even enters the rooms. Not nice!

The woman named Mel, the owner was a delightful host, grocery store close by, good kitchen. My private room was small but cozy: GOOD HOT WATER. The beach close by is nothing much to swim in.
