Property Description

Located on the back side of the island, we are steps away from the Caribbean sea and a walk away from the main areas on the island.Right out the back door is a small lagoon with amazing sunset views, and a private dock for guest use. Bella’s Backpackers is a family run hostel which gives more of a local and homey vibe, and it also gives you the chance to embrace in the culture. The hostel is ran out of an older looking wooden house which rises a charming feeling in it, and there are lots of hang out space and hammock areas around the house. This gives you the opportunity to chill and catch up on some reading, or meet other travelers and share stories. Come join the Bella’s Crew and have a good time!! 😄🌴

Pretty nice hostel. I really enjoyed the bunk room vibe. This place is built up almost like the Swiss Family Robinson house. Lots of bunks & little nooks and small rooms where you can tuck yourself away for a quiet moment. Kitchen could use some attention, and there's a mouse living behind the stove, but other than that, bathrooms are clean, water pressure is GREAT, and locale eels close to the action but not on the main drag. I haven't worn shoes in 2 weeks, and you can put your feet up here.

This hostel has potential to be amazing but it is so rundown and dirty We seen mice in the kitchen twice and a dead rat in the bar Dog poo everywhere and dogs and cats running everywhere INTENSE smell of pure sulphur/sewage constantly in the back area Staff are nice but do no work and even asked us to refill the water ourselves No regard for the environment with plastic waste constantly blowing in the mangroves out the back because no one ever picks up litter or empties the bins Staff had a water balloon flight and let the plastic balloons all float into the mangroves also No hot water in the showers ever Locals hang out and party till 3am every night and it creates an extremely weird vibe. I would feel unsafe if I was a solo female traveller. Also extremely loud if ur in a bed attached to the back wall. Anyone can get in anytime so it isn’t secure and dorms don’t have locks/keys. There was never any drinking water even when requested Most guests left after a night when we stayed due to the dirt, rodents and lack of working staff Only positive is the free bikes and kayaks and the location
