With a privat beach in front of the hostel this is a must go! There are sweet cats walking down the property, I'm allergic to cats and didn't have any problems. The owners are very nice and the 10 bed dorm room is spacious. It's a quiet place where you can stay for a rest, no party people around. It's... More

I had such an amazing time here! This place not only had unbeatable prices, but worked as a non-profit animal sanctuary to cats and dogs. Very eco-friendly and clean! We were so kindly welcomed by everyone there. The brightly colored accommodation included spacious dorms, large kitchen area, clean showers/toilets, & kayaks for personal use. Relax on the dock that features... More

A great place to relax a bit during your travels. We had some travel issues and the owners were great. They really helped us in sorting everything out. They have a real positive friendly vibe. The beds are comfortabel and it is a clean place. Smells a bit like cats downstairs but not in the dorm or common area. We... More

Positive things: really friendly owner, free kayakrent, cheap dormbeds, clean toilets, beautifull sunset, 'private beach' Negative things: kitchen isn't clean, showers are small and not very clean, the environment around the hostel isn't really nice If you sleep in the dorm, take the lowest bed of the bunkbed, there's no airco, only fan, and the fan only reaches to the...

My daughter and I spent a week with Madi and her animals- volunteering and falling in love with Belize! Madi runs a much needed animal shelter on the beautiful island of Caye Caulker. We helped with the animal care every morning then spent the rest of our day either relaxing, snorkeling, kayaking or exploring the island. We couldn't have asked... More

The hostel is clean and tidy. Located in town close to the water-taxi, shops and restaurants. The cats and dogs make it very lovely to stay there (if you like them). Enough showers and bathrooms (all clean, no hot water) sheets and kitchen. That said the hostel has downsides. No lock on the front-door or to the doors of dorm-rooms.... More

Great location 2 blocks from main street. (1 block from bank) The BEST sunsets ever from the private beach located in the sanctuary. Kayaks available to explore the mangroves and reach other beaches. Chill out on the dock watching the sunset or fall asleep in the hammock. We could hang out on the dock for hours watching stink rays, pelicans,... More

Madi is a great host and she does a great job at creating an awesome vibe. The most rewarding view of the sunset... I mean what more could you ask for :) The rooms, kitchen area, bathrooms are cleaned on a daily basis. The are kayaks available. I would defiantly recommend this hostel.

This is okay accommodation on Caye caulker. I know the place says you must love cats and dogs to stay there but we didn't expect the place to sink of cat poo!!! The owner is sweet. The rooms are pretty basic with no lockers in ours. Definitely only stay here if you love the smell of animals too !!! The... More
