This place is immaculately clean, modern and bright bathrooms and rooms. Great location on the beach, and no where is far to walk to in the town. Lydia herself was lovely and happy to help. Kitchen was workable. Decent wifi. Really good value for money.

I was in Placencia with several other Peace Corps Belize volunteers for the End of the World Marathon. Since we live off of a small stipend, Lydia's was a perfect fit for us. It was close to all the action, as well as just across the sidewalk to the beach...and beautiful sunrises. Lydia went out of her way to make... More

I stayed at lydia's for 2 nights, and paid $25/night. It is basic, but clean and secure. The rooms have 2 beds and a fan, and the bathrooms are shared. The location is great, right on the main boardwalk, just down from the main bars like the tipsy tuna and the barefoot. Lydia is a very nice lady and watches... More

Lydia's is a lovely place to stay - comfortable, light and spotlessly clean bedrooms and bathrooms, a kitchen for guests and balconies overlooking the walkway and gardens beyond. Lydia herself was very kind and helpful to us, and is a font of information about the area. The location is very convenient, just a minute's walk from the beach, the bars... More

For the price, I don't think Lydia's can be beat. The rooms each have a fan and there are two communal bathrooms and a communal fridge. For someone looking for a clean, inexpensive place to stay, this is the perfect place for you. It's just a short walk to the main part of town, and about a block from the... More

I really like Lydia's Guest House, especially as a single traveller. The rates are affordable for people on a budget. You can meet people from all over the world at Lydia's. The rooms are very basic & clean with fans. The shared bathrooms were always clean and never an issue. You can come and go as you please with locked... More

Clean and simple room, comfortable bed, and bathrooms that were always kept spotless. The full kitchen allowed us to prepare meals, rather than eat out all the time. Lydia was a gracious host and made us feel very much at home. I will definitely return.

As hostels go, I had a nice stay and met some nice people. I liked that it was not in the heart of things so it was quiet, but easy walk to all that you need and across from ocean. I saw some other hostels and didn't like what I saw. I had a fan in my room and there... More

We really enjoyed our time here. Simple room but very clean. The well equipped kitchen (by hostel standards) enabled us to cook yummy meals. Also good place to connect with other travelers. I'd recommend an upstairs room if possible for better view and air circulation, though our downstairs room was nice enough.

We stayed at Lydia's for one night in a house the had 4 bedrooms with 2 shared bathrooms and a refrigerator. We occupied 3 of the 4 rooms, and the rooms all had their own locks, but it was not what I was expecting. I thought we each had a private bathroom, etc. I think Lydia does offer some accomodations...
