I originally stayed at Dirty Mcnasty's just across the street because it had free breakfast and drinks. After 3 nights I moved over to Bella's because I wanted a different experience. The vibe at Bella's was all around better. I ended up extending my trip 3 weeks and staying here made it all worth while. Best hostel on the island!... More

When we were on Caye Caulker in Jan 2015 the island was packed. Since we had a tent we decided to go to Bella's. It is a place for travelers, the kitchen is well equipped, lockers are available, the owner is helpful and easygoing. We enjoyed the hammocks and the special chairs they have. We really enjoyed the place. If... More

Somehow ended up back in Belize in december and changed my whole route so I could spend christmas at Bella's once again. This is probably the only hostel that is going to set up a turkey and ham potluck dinner for holidays... Pretty amazing to have a taste of home so far from it. Spent an inter week this year... More

My friend and I stayed at Bella's in the private room at the very top of the tower - which, if it is available I would definitely recommend paying extra for! It had a great view and felt like we were staying in a quaint little tree house. The staff are very helpful, nice and easy going. They offer many... More

Bella's is the best, in my ten days or so there I made friends that will last and felt perfectly safe and comfortable. I started out hammock camping and moved to a dorm bed when it started raining. The staff there was open and welcoming and really enhanced my experience in caulker. I plan on going back to Belize and... More

Bellas hostel itself is pretty nice, with a nice sitting area, a clean and very well stalked kitchen. The loft is the best room by far if its available - take it! We stayed in the cabin, and overcrowding is definitely an issue there - which i saw mentioned a few times in posts below. We had 5 people, and... More

I'm extremely sorry that your stay at Bella's was unpleasant. And yes we do have cameras set up In our common areas and other locations on the property for your guests safety, but if no one notifies us about an occurance. We cannot do anything about it. Talking to the other guests Instead of the workers will not help anything.... More

Stayed at Bella's for 2 nights. Good things are that it is a very social place and it is easy to meet people. Their hangout area is really nice and comfortable. The owner does not say or explain much but is friendly enough. Also it is one of the cheapest places to stay on the island and it has a... More

You really get a good feeling about this place instantly! Its very familiar and its always a lot of people here. The mood is always good! They go out fishing all day and if you got the opportunity to participate in a fish dinner, do it! Its AMAZING! And cheap! Loved this place! Love/ the sweds
