Property Description

Here at The Old House Hostel we enjoy nothing more than to relax with our guests, make connections and share stories. Most evenings are spent chatting on the balcony with a small group of travelers from all over the world. We always seem to find ourselves wrapped up in many different cultures. Whether it be sharing stories of their adventures for the day or listening to someone playing the guitar; relax and forget about your worries. We aim to provide all our guests with an escape from your hectic traveling or work schedule and bring you a home away from home.

We are in the heart of downtown San Ignacio just steps away from the town center, great bars, restaurants and archaeological sites. A great location to get around town by foot or by public transportation. If you are looking to experience San Ignacio with fellow creatives then you found the right place!

Our old colonial house rests just above the foot of one of the towns’ main hills. Its many windows and large balconies provide countless amazing viewpoints of the charming town and its hilly vista. At the Old House we offer 4 large bathrooms; two full sized bathrooms on the main level and two additional toilet and large stone shower stalls with hot and cold water on the lower level. Our fully equipped kitchen is always available to our guests along with a small outdoor prep kitchen and grill on our back deck. You will find that our central common areas make for a great place to meet fellow travelers or to find a quiet corner to enjoy a book from our book exchange. Located just downstairs is the only live music and art venue in San Ignacio, The Belize Soul Project. The bar sells local wines, made in house and beers. If your lucky to be here on a Wednesday or Friday don't miss out on the fun.

San Ignacio is a small, culture-oriented town located in the mountainous Cayo District of mainland Belize. Its location is perfect for any travelers coming from or going to Guatemala and Mexico and of course travelers looking to explore the natural treasures Belize has to offer. With many amazing water falls, rivers, caves, Mayan Temples, animal life and unique experiences, everyone will find their reason to stay a little longer than expected.

Things to note: Bar can be heard upstairs, they open from 6pm to 11pm on Wed & Fri, on occasion Sat.
We have two lovely live in pets Roach the cat and Ragga Muffin the dog.
In true Belize style all our rooms are fan only

Great hostel! Just five minutes walk to the bus stop and even less than that to town. I wasn’t able to make my reservation and they were nice enough to move it to the next day! Cheapest tour offerings and many hammocks to chill after a busy day.

I had the best time staying at the Old House Hostel. If you’re passing through San Ignacio, it’s the place to stay. Ethan in particular was incredibly welcoming and helpful, answered all my questions and made sure I had an amazing stay. Will 100% be coming back in the future
