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

We stayed here because Bella's was temporarily closed and our previous experience with Acropolis Maya was our worst hostel experience in the dozens of hostels we've stayed at in Central America (filthy rooms, poor security, terrible and absent service). I shared a room with 3 other girls (2 full-ish sized beds). The room had a private bathroom, a fan, wi-fi... More

We have had a difficult time in finding a reasonable place to stay in our trip in San Ignacio. When looking for a place to sleep we have found many hotels with, in our opinion, unjustified prices. Eventually we have settled for Hi-et Guesthouse and we have been with our choice. The Hotel is very close, within 2 minutes walking,... More

Great location and everything you need for cheep. A friend and I went and got a room for $24 a night, so we each paid $12. They have wifi, hot water, and are located right next to places to eat. I highly recommend this place to stay.

If you don't need anything fancy, Hi-Et is super cheap and the rooms are clean. Nothing special, but if you want a clean bed and a hot shower then this will get the job done. We paid $20 a night and that allowed us to financially recover a little bit from staying in more expensive hotels.
