Lovely little place. It's run by a family out of their house, so it feels completely safe and comfortable. Clean, pretty rooms; a clean shared bathroom, very spacious; and a clean shared kitchen. Kids are always playing in the yard and the family's grandmother is there at all times -- they don't have a safe, but they offered to have... More

We spent 4 nights here in July 2014. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff were very friendly, and the kitchen was kept clean and ordered. Great for travellers who want a quiet place and want to keep costs down.

J&R's Guesthouse is a small, family style home with private or shared restrooms and a communal kitchen. My boyfriend and I stayed in a small room with a shared bathroom for $27 BZ. It was perfect for us, as we were traveling on a backpackers budget. The owners and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Unfortunately, the... More

Cute little place run by lovely couple. Helpful and informative. Hummingbirds in the gardens. Rooms are clean and a little basic but, if like me, you travel to see the places *outside* your room then this is all you need (the negative review on here needs to re-assess their travel priorities in my opinion).

Great place to stay. Very friendly girl working there, lovely clean rooms and 2 minute walk to town centre. They have WIFI and use of the kitchen with fridge until 7pm, but you can't cook after that. Cheaper rooms have clean, shared bathroom. We paid $22.50USD (45 Belize) for a double room with very nice bathroom and cable TV. The... More

Miss Rose, the owner boiles water every morning for your cup of thee or coffee and thoughout the day she and an other lady are around to help you with anything. Besides some braking dogs that are all around town it is also quiet at... More

The accommodations at J & R are simple, but very clean and comfortable. There are two shared bathrooms in the main part of the house, and the room that is separated from the others, on the other side of the patio, has it's own full bathroom. There is also a shared kitchen which is well stocked with utensils and pans,... More

This place isn't perfect... Our room was tiny and the bed was horribly soft (they had done that strange thing that seems to be common in budget places in Central America where they put a new mattress on top of the old worn out one). However, it's cheap ($15 for double room with shared bathroom), it's clean, simple breakfast is... More

We stayed for two nights and the owner did anything he could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He drove us to the ruins, organized a horsebackriding tour (spontaniously), got us another room when he was fully booked and much more! The hostel is just 200m off the city center, but it's already a bit quiet which is... More
