I LOVE this hostel. Great value. Adorable owner/manager. Sophie is very kind and caring. I had a great time staying here. A hurricane was poised to hit us and Sophie made sure we would all be safe and had access to everything we might need. It turned out that it missed us but it was an exciting day/night waiting by...

What a lovely hostel !! Great price and Sophie the owner is wonderful too! Although it's not right on the beach it doesn't matter it's beautiful with a wicked chill out area and is still only like a 5 min walk to beach and beach road! Definitely stay here!!

Nice hostel, pretty cheap, kitchen is good, a microwave would be a good improvement though. The terrace with the hammocks is an awesome place to get relaxed and fall sleep. The host is very nice, she's always paying attention to your inquires and helps to find supermarkets, beaches and fun around the neighbor as well

Amazing hostel; close to the beach, nice bars and restauras and in a quiet area. Met a lot of people and had great moments. Loved chilling out at roof terrace. Thanks Sofi for making me feel like at home and for your efforts fighting against mosquitos!. No doubt in choosing again this place.

I recently stayed at this hostel with a friend and our experience in this hostel was almost completely terrible for two reasons: location and price. It's a 'short 10 minute walk from the beach' but that short walk is down a street that we were not comfortable walking at night. It's windy with no lights or sidewalk so cars can't... More

I'd say this is an ideal budget option for older travellers, also good for younger backpackers, but the over 30s don't feel out of place. Fully equipped kitchen, rooms may be a better option than the dorm, which is rather dark and not so spacious. But the important bits are all positive, a big roof-top terrace with lounging options, wifi,... More

Roatan doesn't have a huge range of budget accommodations, as far as I could tell. This hostel was a last minute option for me since I arrived a couple of days before my friend, when we had a hotel reserved. I wasn't very impressed. The beds were not very comfortable and one of the fans in the room didn't work,... More

What a great place to relax after spending the day diving and snorkeling. The people here are super friendly, and only a short walk to the beach and restaurants. There is also a chocolate factory across the street, and Petro station less than a block away.
