A group of us stayed here for a week so we really got to know the place! :) It's location couldn't be better right at the dock and close to everything. This hostel is very clean. Showers are cold but again very clean. The kitchens are the nicest I've seen, it was the first place I cooked and ate breakfast.... More

Yuma's is an interesting place. As the water taxi approached the terminal, we were fumbling for our directions-no need. It is literally a 20 second walk . It is colourful and cheerful on the outside with two dogs relaxing comfortably in the garden, so much so we stopped for a few seconds to make sure they were actually breathing. It... More

We stayed for one night in July. The staff were very helpful although I agree from other posts that Suzanne does run a tight ship. Very clean and well equipted throughout. Good wifi. My only complaint was no AC made the rooms unbearably hot and no one got any sleep. We stayed downstairs at the back of the property and... More

We stayed in a private bedroom at Yuma's place. The hostel looks cool, nice views and cool decorations. Everything is clean (also the kitchens) and the hostel is central to everything. Downsides: there is no airconditioning and the showers are cold. But, if you stay in the season we were there, for less money you can get a room with... More

I stayed here for four nights in a dorm bed and loved every night of my stay. Breakfast isn't included although there are two well equipped kitchens. It's not a party hostel which I loved. There's a very relaxed vibe which all the hammocks and chairs allow. Susanne is very helpful but she does run a tight ship but this... More

Very nice place to bed down for a few days on a budget, a charming little hostel that enables you to just kick back and relax...clean rooms, great kitchens and a very relaxing garden combine to create a subtle ambiance that is rarely found in the central america "hostel scene" prices are reasonable but this place is constantly full with...

We stayed there in April 2014 and would recommend the hostel to anyone visiting caye caulker. It is located at the beach where the boats from belize city arrive and is close to everything happening on the island. The rooms and nice and very clean. The owner of the hostel is super nice and was really helpful during our stay!!... More

This hostel is in a great location on the water and the building is cute.. But apart from that I didn't love it. I had high expectations because of the reviews and was disappointed. There are so many rules and signs everywhere.. You cannot feel comfortable. Not once did I see anyone sitting around with a beer, probably because you... More

Stayed here 4 nights during a 10 day trip to Belize. It was our first time in a hostel style place and we weren't sure what to expect but this was perfect for what we needed. We had a private room at the end of the hall. Arriving after dark it was perfectly located right next to the ferry dock... More

I stayed a few nights in June 2014. It was spotless!! Cozy, amazing hammocks and chair swings to hang out in, super close to the taxi docks, great kitchen, and Susanne was absolutely sweet!! I heard a few people at a cafe on the island complaining about how strict she was, but it makes the hostel feel very safe. Wifi... More
