..and that say's it all! Awesome family vibe, you will feel right at home. The managers, Nicole and Jeff, will make sure of that! The island is gorgeous, and extremely laid-back (never forget to "go slow"). Perfect if you love the ocean! The old wooden building has it's charm, even tho it's a bit worn down. Cool vibe, always music... More

The managers are a family and they organize special price for backpackers. Nice spot, very quiet, clean and close to the beach. You can use the kayak for free. They also organize boat tour and dive with an organization. The dorm are safe, you can out your stuff in big lockers. Bring a lock! Its hot on the island but... More

I had a great experience at Bella's. It is run by a family. It is so nice to have children running around! The hostel is clean, close to the split, good restaurants close by, and really nice to just chill at the hostel, to be honest. It's all about timing and the people you meet and i think i was... More

I really enjoyed my week at Bella's. The vibe is perfect for the location. Staff is fantastic - very helpful when you need it and friendly if you feel like chatting, but stay out of your way if you prefer. Everyone congregates out front on the porch and in the yard as the day ends and the night begins, so... More

Never seen so many cockroaches in the same room in my life. We were a group of 3 people who rented the shed standing alone in the middle of the yard. After the third (flying) cockroach we spotted inside our room within 10 minutes, we decided to leave the room and we went to sleep outside by the beach instead.... More

This place has the coolest vibe, laid back and just what you need in paradise. The owners are great there always around but never in ya way. Has a real beach house vibe more so then staying at a hostel. As the sun goes down and dinner is delt with out comes the rum punch and everyone just mixes with... More

I know its expected for a hostel at the beah to be a bit sandy but the bathrooms could have been cleaned a bit more regularly. One of them didnt lock properly and the other had no light lol. It was quite nice to stay here instead of at Dirty Mcnastys nextdoor as you could go over to join the... More

My friend and I enjoyed an excellent time at Bella's. The dorm room we were in (ground floor) was pretty standard, with enough fans to go around the 8 beds comfortably. Upstairs the dorms are interesting - with beds located on mezzanine style balconies. The communal kitchen is well kept, although it is quite small and can get busy around... More

I really enjoyed staying at Bella's. The owners are really friendly and make sure you have everything you need. They have wifi, comfortable rooms, lockers and a communal kitchen (also fans to keep you cool at night). Bella's is the cheapest place to stay on the island and is good quality for the price. There's a great atmosphere at night... More
