We came for two nights and stayed a week. Bella's is a superb hostel with great rooms, two well equipped kitchens, perfect common areas with hammocks and deck chairs and the most welcoming chilled out vibe on the island. We met some amazing new friends and loved welcoming people who moved to Bella's from other hostels. Come and stay but... More

I got off the boat in Caye Caulker with no place to stay. A friendly looking traveler smiled at me as if reading my mind and asked, "you looking for a hostel?" As a matter of fact I was! We walked a short distance (everything is a short distance here) and arrived at Bella's. An intimate cabin style hostel with... More

Chill laid back environment, while the hostel across from it is more party oriented. They really need to do something about the bathrooms outside because the sand and standing water on the floor is just disgusting. I used the bathroom upstairs the entire time but I could tell it was annoying to the people in that dorm room. If staff... More

It's a fun place to meet people and party. Although they clean the place every day but it's not the cleanest place. There was only two showers and 3 bathrooms for the entire hostel. We were there for 3 nights and the hostel was full, 30 or more beds. It was not easy to use the bathroom when you needed... More

Bella`s is a nice guesthoust, very close to the main beach on the island. There is a shared kitchen and kind of rooms : privates, tents and dorms. The prices were OK, not cheap and not expensive if you compare it to the other places in Caye Caulker. I liked the opportunity of rent a kayaks for free. There is... More

Stayed at Bella's for 3 nights. The rooms were average and sleep quality not so good. Dogs barking early morning, staff and cleaners constantly coming into the rooms while everyone is sleeping. The sand flies and mosquitos definitely ruined the experience. However, Bella's is a great place to socialize. I switched hostels after a few days but would still come... More

I think staying in Bellas was the right decision. Its is much more relaxed than Yumas and also cheaper. Beds are fine, showers kinda ok. The owners seem pretty friendly. I would recommens this place especially to solo travellers, it is super easy to meet others. Wifi was working very well and it was safe despite having no lockers.

This hostel is a bit of a party hostel, but on Caye Caulker, they all kind of are. This hostel lends out free bikes and canoes, which makes it worth it. We slept okay there - beds were decent, but it was a little loud when everyone came home from the bar. After that though, quiet. I would probably stay... More

I walked around this whole part of the island and basically looked at rooms at every place there. Bella´s was definitely the best option for anyone not looking to spend too much, it was definitely the cheapest I saw for 20BZD in the dorm. The dorm has two beds in a small loft type area where I stayed so I... More
