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

I stayed here for 5 days while on Caye Caulker. Its good budget accommodation. I had a private room with fan for $15 US per night. Although I was happy with my stay here, there are a few things I would like to mention. It was crowded-and people were sleeping on mattresses on the floor. I never tried cooking in... More

If you want quiet, this isn't the place. People are hanging out and talking on the porch until all hours. But it also isn't a "party" hostel as they have no bar and everyone just relaxes. The day tour is so great through the hostel with Jacob and Shorty, they do all they can to give you the best day... More

..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
