Despite past reviews, I had absolutely no problems staying here as a solo female traveller. In fact, having the wonderful manager A to walk you around town made me feel it was even safer to venture out. Apparently there have been a lot of changes recently which means previous issues are no longer a problem. I had a really great... More

I stayed for the night that I arrived in Belize. The manager 'A' was really cool and helpful a really intelligent lady with a great sense of humour. She cooked me some food as soon as I got in and I got to meet the eclectic guests staying at the hostel. The wifi was good and the staff really helpful... More

If you have to stay in Belize City, which isn't very nice, this is a great location. Centrally located and close to all the things you need, like the ferry to the cayes or delicious street food. This is a safe location with an awesome host and a few eclectic guest. If you're looking for privacy go to a hotel,... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hostel our last night in Belize City. The owner (Mitch) gave us an icky feeling right off the bat, but we thought he was just a really spiritual guy "oddball" so we gave him the benefit of the doubt. The entire time we were there he was highly intoxicated, made very inappropriate comments,... More

Stay somewhere else! Please. I didn't like it here, the manager was not really interested in our questions, there were strange people there, people smoking pot in the common area, and the private room was totally not worth it, very expensive, 44 us dollar for one room, with own bathroom, but so small, and not clean. Also, i couldnt sleep... More

This place was great. As in the other reviews the owner may have been drinking and the place seemed a little run down, but that did not make it a negative experience. He saw fishing rods on our bags and was excited to take us out fishing that night just after we got in. We were toured around a bit,... More

Belize City was the first destination on my travels and the Seaside Guesthouse the first hostel I ever stayed in. Whilst I didn't feel entirely comfortable with the city (albeit this was my first 2 days of getting used to backpacking), I found the hostel to be more than adequate. By their own admission it is a bit run down... More

I dont know why this place has bad reviews, I have been traveling for 4 months and its one of the best places i stayed. From the moment we got there we were made to feel at home. We needed to get food to cook dinner on the first night so one of the staff walked us up to the... More

While on my way through Belize to Caye Caulker and San Pedro, I came across the guesthouse while taking a bus from Chetumal in Mexico. There is a wonderfully eclectic mix of people in Belize City, as was especially the case in this hostel. The management was always there to make a home-cooked meal, take us out to the local... More
