The rooms were great and just what we wanted- a real bargain at the price you pay. What makes the place great though is the owner D. She is very helpful and went out of her way to assist me and my friends when we needed information that we couldn't find online, in books or from other locals. If highly... More

Dana is a great host, the private room has air conditioning and a not so well equipped kitchen. But you can ask Dana for anything you need and you can borrow her pots and pans. The building looks ugly when you see it at first, but that's just the outside. Hammocks on the front porch are great and you're right... More

It has been couple years ago when I stayed in D´s (Val´s) and I had a great time. Dana was an amazing host. I still remember a taste of her cake and watermelon juice. Her stories were magic and recommendations were more than helpfull. Rooms were very clean and tidy. I hope I´ll get back one day to have a... More

If you are looking to get off the Tourist path and hit up Dangriga (saturday market is the best). d's hostel is the place to go. On the outside it looks like an abandoned concrete building. But once you meet the D and her warm welcome, she will show you to one of the cleanest, most secure, and comfortable hostels... More

The exterior of the hostel does not do the place justice. I stayed for four nights in a dorm with an ensuite. Each dorm bed has an air mattress and its own fan. The place is kept very clean. Dana and her family are all friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is prepared by Dana and she allows you the use of... More

We stayed at Dana's for one night on our way to Hopkins. The hostel is simple but very clean and very comfortable. Each bed has its own fan as well. Breakfast in the morning made by Dana herself was just too good!! Would definitely stay again :-)

We visited D's Hostel twice & we were very satisfied with all what the place had to offer! Warm welcome, great breakfast, hammocks & everything incredibly clean. Dana helped us in every way she could to find what we needed, from a boat trip to the cays to a great garifuna meal :-)))) Dangriga's worth a stop! Kiss Maya for... More

this place is a 10 minute walk from the bus station and easy to find . The lady who runs the place (D) is very helpful and welcoming but she does run a tight ship so she will explain all the rules to you. you get clean sheets and towels on arrival and you make your own bed in the... More

On first appearance this concrete box of a hostel might seem a little inhospitable but far from it. For BZ$25 a night you get a dorm bed and fresh breakfast of fruit, juice, coffee and a waffle. The location is also perfect with an uninterrupted view out to sea and an almost constant sea breeze that tempers both the humidity... More

I had no expectations of this place since I just stumbled upon it, but it turned out to be good in all ways. Spacious dorms with air mattresses (they get pumped every day and are quite comfortable actually). Clean and big bathroom. Balcony with hammock and small benches out in front. If sitting up in my bed I could see... More
