I stayed in the Hi-Et in 2001 and again in 2012. Both times, I absolutely loved it, to stay in a wooden house, with lovely owners, it is simple but very atmospheric. And, it had not changed at all in 10 years, which in my opinion is a great thing!

We're currently staying here and absolutely love it. Our room is small and the bathroom is not private, but everything is clean and we even have our own small balcony. Plus it's cheap compared to similar options here in San Ignacio and the people here are friendly. We're paying 30 BZ$ for our double room and couldn't be happier! Great... More

Stayed here for 2 days in a private room with shared bathroom. The place is clean, safe, location is great, and the value is great. If you are not looking for something luxurious and are a traveler more than a vacationer then this is the place to go.

It may be a bit loud, but it is right in the heart of the city. Everything is walk-able. It was easy to find. Bedroom was a bit small but it was just myself and it was nice having a queen bed. Bathroom was a bit cramped, not very wide. But the price was great $25 BZ so I was... More

My partner and I stayed here after arriving in San Ignacio late in the evening. We were looking for a place to stay and were told of Hi-et. First impressions were ok as you are in someones livingroom however once we got upstairs and looked around our room we were very disappointed. We were in the room which overlooked the... More

Cute, cheap place with clean rooms and your own little balcony but it's right on the street so a little noisy. The big downside is the DJ decks set up across the road blasting rap non-stop from 7:30am until 1am every day. I dont know who they are or why they are there. It wont stop.

My boyfriend and I backpacked through Belize and this was our favorite place to stay. We had a private room. It's inexpensive, the owners and friendly and helpful, and the rooms are spacious and clean compared to others we stayed at. If you have the option, stay further back from the street because the noise can get loud (but we... More

Hi-et is the cheapest place in town and you get what you pay for. Location is good right next to the main streets. We had a double room without bathroom. The rooms are very small. There is only the place for a bed and a very small drawer.h But the room is clean. The bathroom are clean but it could... More

We checked in after a very long drive from Belize city, only to be greeted by a very unfriendly and inhospitable couple. We had a reservation and an email from them to confirm it. They just looked at us like we had three heads, then some sidekick (a guest I assume) decided to chime and and tell us how to... More
