This place is exactly what it says in all the other reviews. It's clean, safe and a really nice place to stay. It is not a party hostel and never pretends to be one. The owner seems intent on insuring this image to the degree she can come across as almost robotic.....she kept us standing freezing in the rain while... More

Dear Rob, Thank you so much for your review. I’m happy you enjoyed your time at Yuma’s and your time diving. My mind is puzzled that we kept you in the rain. Our office has a roof and walls, all the good stuff that is needed. You possibly arrived during one of those heavy summer rains and got soaked. I’m... More

While Yuma's was one of the cleanest hostels I've been to, the woman who runs it (Susan) is extremely rude and unwelcoming to guests. She was always lurking around looking for people breaking her "rules" and was very nasty to non-guests. The vibe at this hostel seems to be very keep-to-yourself, as I was traveling solo and found that very... More

Dear Lindsay B, I grew up with the German saying: wie man in den Wald hineinruft, so schallt es heraus. It translates to: the way you call into the woods the way it will echo back at you. Or you can translate it into American English: what goes around comes around. I’m wondering if you are a little bit a... More

Right on the beach (next to the dock/port). You get a gorgeous view of the sea without ever having to step out of the property. We stayed here for 6 nights and the people who both work and/or stayed here were very nice. If you're staying in Caye Caulker, look no further! Word of advice, make reservations ahead of time...

Stayed three nights at the hostel based on high recommendations from friends who had been and so glad we stayed here. Staff so helpful and friendly, location is beach front (couldn't of asked for better) hammocks on the docks overlooking the ocean. Had a private room and it was cute and clean. Shared kitchen was very clean as well. Anyone... More

My friend and I stayed here for three days in July and didn't want to leave! The hostel is beautiful and impeccably well kept. The location on the beach with hammocks and swings in the garden make this the perfect place to chill out and relax. The kitchen facilities are excellent and the bathrooms and dorms are clean and tidy.... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in the tail end of our Belize trip. We've always heard great things about it but you have to book early to get a room because it fills up quickly. Suzanne was great. She made sure we had everything we needed for our stay and gave us a good run down... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private double room for 2 weeks in June. Upon arrival we were greeted by the ever consistent and always friendly Suzanne, who single handed keeps the place running to an exceptional standard. Our original room was a small double, but very clean and came with a fan which was a real benefit. After... More

As has been said before, not a party hostel. Many rules which makes for a tight ship. Very clean although doubles are very small but relatively good value for Caye Caulker/Belize. Very good location only metres from either ferry. Always busy so must be good.

Great hostel in good location on the island. Susanne the owner is helpful and lovely to deal with. The rooms are so clean and the upstairs shower has great pressure (although cold, but never wanted it hot). We stayed in a private room and while it was small and basic the bed was very comfy and we didn't need anything... More

I agree with other reviewers that susanne has worked hard to create a great hostel and she manages it with care and a smile. My wife and I stayed 6 nights in a private room. The kitchens were well equipped and the whole property clean and maintained with care. Not a party hostal but social. We slept well here and... More
