  • Aldo and Davina and their staff are awesome! This was such a great place to spend 4 days, the location is awesome 2 min walk from the middle of town. The vibes at the hostel were amazing and the whole hostel has a really good casual sort of style. Of the 3 nights there (wed-sat) the pub was only loud one night and was closed by midnight. I would highly recommend this place to stay when in San Ignacio.

  • Best Place Ever!  Cool old house that actually is a hostel on top and a bar/gallery downstairs. The dorms were clean, had a lot of space to lock in all the luggage, and big clean bathrooms with HOT showers 🙂 they were also equipped with a nice kitchen where you can cook your own food. The common area is so nice, and its just small enough so you get to know all of the guests as well. What a nice vibe, you feel like home here!

  • We had the best time at the hostel, Aldo and Davina are the loveliest people you could ever meet. They give the place a lovely relaxed vibe and were great for a chat or any advice you might need. The bar downstairs is very cool when open, easy homemade wine and Aldo knows what he’s doing with a guitar. booked to stay two nights, stayed four – wish i could have been longer. Really hope we’ll be back.

  • Never had a better hostel experience. The people who run this place feel like friends now. The porch was the perfect hangout spot after a long day exploring the area. We plan to return soon and highly recommend!

  • Best Hostel I’ve Been To!  This is an amazing hostel where you’ll make friends and feel like part of a family. As a solo traveler this is probably the best pace to stay in San Ignacio as I go to meet so many people that showed me amazing places in town. I ended up staying for three weeks as the city became my favourite of all the places I visited in Belize. This will forever be a stopping point along my travels.

  • Love! Love! Love! This place… the owner is young, sweet, and helpful, its super laid back and equipped with everything you need.  Love the local art and the mix of people. Sheets are clean, home is clean.

  • Lovely Little Hostel!  Great location just up fro the towns main square (close to bus station & main restaurants). As it is a conversion from an old colonial style house it has a really homely feeling here, with comfy sofas & a large kitchen and only two dorm rooms means it never feels overcrowded. The veranda has a stunning view over the town & we spent a couple of evening chilling there happily. Definitely recommend this place & would 100% choose it again if staying in San Ignacio.
