One of the better hostels I've stayed at. Beachfront accommodation with their own dock and beach. Pizza restaurant, full bar, coffee shop and ice cream all on the 1st "floor" of the hostel, what more could you ask for? 3 rooms of about 12 beds...More
We had a wonderful time staying at the Sandbar. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the location was perfect. Our room was in the back (Jaguar) and was spacious and the shared balcony was nice. Would stay here again!
On the beach. A short walk away from the water taxi, scuba shops, dining and grocery. AC and internet also worked well. We had a little balcony, but it wasn't private and we never used it. Having a kitchenette was great, too.
At first when I arrived (on a Saturday), I thought i'd be in for party hostel vibes (given there was karaoke going on next door & folks drinking downstairs) , which I wasn't looking for but I was pleased to find the dorm rooms were...More
My friend and I arrived without a reservation because our other accommodation didn't work out and they were so helpful. We only stayed here 2 nights, but kept coming back to hang out for our whole month in San Pedro. I was really excited to...More

Belize City is undoubtedly a dangerous place. That being said, it's not so dangerous that you can't use it as a transit point to go on to other places in the country; I just wouldn't stay there. Not that it is the most interesting place anyway. It's a standard Central American city. Not too pretty and more than slightly troubled by crime. If you're white, you will stand out a great deal and if you're not, you could still find yourself standing out rather and potentially be seen as an easy target. On the mainland, outside of the city, it's similar to the countryside throughout the region; it's safe enough. Towns and villages are blighted by poverty and unemployment, so they're not secure in the way that a village in Newfoundland or Norway might be, but not so dangerous that you should be put off. As an experienced backpacker, I'm sure you'd be quite fine.
If you're going to the islands, where most visitors to Belize travel, you're in luck. They're very safe places, where you would be really unlikely and terribly unlucky to have any great difficulties, much less be the victim of a violent crime. Your only trouble will be putting up with all the other visitors from the Canada and the U.S.
