I am so sad to write this review but sheets were dirty, the shower smelled of urine and filth on the floor, the toilet bin was not emptied and overflowing w/ used TP, the place just isn't clean. They have a little patio but I wasn't sure if I could use it... no one introduced me to the property when... More

Although we appreciate the feed back of our customers because this is the only way we are able to improve, we must say that the person writing this review is exaggerating because she was upset because we had to bring to her attention that no outside guest or smoking was allowed at our hostel. We have always improved ever since... More

First, I fully understand that this is a volunteer enterprise and one that is doing good for animal welfare. In saying that, the accommodation amenities offered with the cabana are extremely basic, especially in relation to bathrooms and internet access. For this reason I decided to move elsewhere after one night. I requested a refund for the following 4 nights,... More

Although we appreciate the feed back of our customers because this is the only way we are able to improve, we must say that the person writing this review was upset because she booked for a $10 bed in our basic rustic cabana and when she arrived expected a stay at the Hilton. Sadly, some people do not read what... More

I stayed for three nights on the cheap and loved it! Madi is really nice and friendly. There is a two-tiered pier where you can go on top and watch the sunset over the water, there are free kayaks to use, there are 78 cats and several friendly dogs. The location is in the heart of the island, a block... More

I'll start off the same way many reviews of PAWs has in saying, Madi is an amazing lady and always went out of her way to make me feel welcome. I camped on the property for 3 nights and then stayed in the dorms for another 4 nights. I left my gear in both the tent and rooms, without feeling... More

First off the owner, Madi, is an amazing person who has lived a really interesting life. This hostel/cat sanctuary is actually her family home where she grew up and has been expanding. We stayed in the brand new dorms which were big and comfortable. The kitchen was being built when we were there so it was lacking in terms of... More

Pause is a great place if you love reasonable rates and when your money goes to a worthy cause. Pause is a cat sanctuary and the money goes toward food and kitty litter for rescued island cats. Madi started her sanctuary when she noticed newborn kittens thrown away in plastic bags in the ocean, saved them and the rest is... More

I got to stay with Madi and her animals for a week and it was truly the experience of a lifetime. First, in response to the negative reviews, I must ask what people were expecting. You are visiting an animal sanctuary. Of course, you are expected to put in time to care for the cats and dogs. If you are... More

We never got to meet Madi, because she was off doing some charitable work for animals. That is what this place is about. Madi was very communicative when we booked our room and made sure we had a taxi driver known to her that took us to the ferry to Caye Caulker. That was VERY helpful given Belize City's reputation...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week (we extended our stay by three days). You can't beat the view from your bedroom window: two loungers on a private beach with the water right there and palm trees either side. There's a deck too where you can sit in the shade and watch the sun go down. As well... More
