We stayed at Roli's Place for 4 nights. What a lovely treat! We were surprised that there are any negative reviews of this place at all. It was one of the nicest and most well thought out hostel style accommodations we have stayed in during our 9 months travelling throughout South and Central America! We stayed in the private room...

We stayed here for one night on our way from Livingston to Utila. Omoa is only small but I found it quite lively and charming. Loads of locals down at the beach eating, swimming, hanging out, it was fun to get amongst it. Roli's was a short walk to the beach and maybe 10-15 minutes from the main road. The... More

I asked for a dorm bed and the lady told me dorm beds were not available. I found out later that there were only a couple of retirees staying on the premises at that time. Single rooms are 150 L a night with shared bathrooms. The lady also asked for 50 L for key deposit but I could not be... More

Hola Fidelisblue, thanks for your respond. Sadly you find this place a run down one. We do have a Marine school in Omoa and we do rent out the dormitory and the 3 rooms on the campground side for marine students. This students stay for 10 to 18 days. We had to go for this option because Omoa lost his... More

Having had a long boat trip from Belize to Puerto Cortes my friends and I needed a safe close place to stay before heading on to Utila the next day. We heard about Omoa so got the short cab ride there. After a long day all you want is a clean room and hot shower but Rolis is much more... More

We stayed in a dorm, with stained mattresses and unbelievable amount of mosquitoes. The fans were broken and the wifi wasn't functioning. To make matters worse, the lights outside our room automatically shut off at 10 pm so we couldn't talk. Our bathroom was covered in cockroaches and frogs but I guess this was part of the travelling experience. The... More

We arrived Omoa on our way from Livingstone - Guatemala to Roatan, and we chose Roli's place as it seemed to be the most mentioned hostel in town. We took the double bed room with private bathroom and T.V. The room was really good for the cheap price we paid. There is a shared, good equipped kitchen, but not well... More
