Awesome place to stay. Great value, very clean, comfy beds, WiFi, straight off the beach and boardwalk. The best beach bars were about a minute's walk away too which was pretty handy. Lydia is an absolute sweetheart too. Five stars would definitely recommend.

We went twice to Placencia and stayed both times at Lydia's place. We liked the place, very close to the beach, supermarket 3min away, 15min walk to the port. The rooms were clean, probably the cleanest shared bathroom I've ever seen, very nice shared shower, but the room itself was very small and almost no furniture to store anything. It... More

We had a clean, private room which was fan cooled. Good location with a shared, clean kitchen and really nice bathrooms. Beds were comfy and room was quiet. Lydia was friendly and informative about Placencia

I shared a private room with share bath with a friend at Lydia's. The hostel is very well located next to the pedestrian path close to the ocean. The hostel is very clean and the prices are very reasonable. The private room with shared bath I shared with a friend was comfy. The kitchen is well equiped. Lydia is a... More

Lydia is a very nice woman who cares about her guests experiences. The guesthouse is very clean with private rooms and shared bathrooms. The outdoor decks are a great place to sit and read our nap in a hammock. The kitchen was well appointed and there were many nice common areas to eat and meet people. This is the best... More

Just one property from the beach. Clean, with a porch including hammocks and chairs., kitchen you can share and laundry facilities. Lydia has owned the place for 34 years. There was a hurricane there in 2001 and pretty much the whole town has rebuilt since then. She doesn't allow any non paying guests on the property for safety sake, and... More

I spent 2 weeks at Lydia's Place in Placencia in October 2014. The rooms are basic and fairly small but clean and bright - bed (some have 2), shelving unit, nightstand, ceiling and standing fan with some hooks on the wall. The windows all have screens and security bars (Lydia is big on security). The maintenance guy was always painting... More

I stayed for three nights in a private room. Lydia wasn't there but her daughter and grandchildren made me feel very welcome and helped me out in any way that was needed. The place is spotless. It also has a kitchen which is handy. I particularly the matching bed set! The bus entering Placencia can drop you near its entrance.... More

We stayed at Lydia's for five nights in June of 2014 in a private room (one double bed and two fans, in our case) with shared bathroom, for about $27.50 (US dollars) plus tax. Lydia's was an obvious choice in a town where accommodations can get quite a bit pricer, and fast. Rooms were very clean, bathrooms were very very... More

We stayed 4 nights at Lydias after our Ragamuffin sailing trip and really enjoyed our relaxed and calming stay. We were concerned after reading the review below, a terrible exerience (i think 2 reviews of the one experience is unfair though). We discoved that a few places had suffered similar break-in's around the same time (I wont name them but... More
