Madi has made a sanctuary for some of the dogs and cats of Caye Caulker while at the same time she has created a tranquil setting for backpackers who love the furry company of Peaches, Chaak, Oso and Twinkie. There are also cats about, but I'm terrible with their names. Set away from the hustle of Front Street, one can... More

We loved it so much we had to return the following year. Once again we had a lovely place to stay and helped Madi around the place. Madi is a wonderful person who is trying daily to keep things going. The few negative reviews on here are usually about charging people for nights when they cancel: if someone is trying... More

We originally booked for 2 nights and extended for a total of 7 nights. If you love cats and dogs, like a quite environment and enjoy meeting laid back travelers from all over the world this is the place. This is NOT a party hostel, quite the opposite, it is very mellow. Maddy, Delia and Captain Wilbert are very kind... More

This is a very basic hostel, its pretty clean but internet was slow and beds not very comfortable. Animals were locked up (which would be necessary considered there where so many of them) but I had mixed feelings about their quality of life. Overall though, this is a nice place if you like animals and there are free canoes and... More

this was a pleasant stay after spending a night at a noisy party hostel. However the kitchen lacks basic equipment such as plates. Internet is slow but working. Nice to borrow cayaks. A bit smelly from the Seagrass but overall ok.

I stayed here for 3 nights and i recommend it to all compassionate people as staying here you contribute to helping Madi's cats. We had the jaguar cabana, only for the 2 of us so it was a comfortable stay. I enjoyed petting the cats and found Madi and the volounteers very friendly They take very good care of the... More

My girlfriend and I returned again to stay with Maddie and the animals. It's like returning home now - she now greets us with a hug and a huge smile. The place has had some major improvements in the year between our visit with new rooms and more toilets. We loved staying here, and everything was perfect. During my visit... More

I just spent the new year holiday at Puase with my puppy and was VERY happy with everything about the place. Madi and the volunteers are lovely and friendly, my room was clean, well furnished, and very comfortable. It was better than I was expecting actually since friends of mine got a much more basic room down the street that... More

Is the smell. By the bathrooms it smelled of excrement, and in other places of cat urine. Too much for me, so I had to leave after one night(I was charged for two anyway). Whatever - those cats have to be fed I guess.
