This place is way overpriced. The place has a new owner on a new (very old building) location and is just using the name of the previous, very nice, hostel to get clients. There is no kitchen, no area to chill out and even the wifi sucks. Oh, and you don't even get sheets. Don't go there!

So we stayed for one night here. The rooms were fairly clean. We had a 3 bed dorm facing the street. It was a little hot but when we asked for another fan the owner was accomodating. The hot water didn't work but it's hot in la ceiba so no dramas there. We didn't book any tours through them and... More

Not a good choice. Room was fairly expensive. AC barley did anything to cool down the room. Bed was quite like a rock. Only slept 4 h :( because I was so uncomfortable. Hot showers don't work. The bathroom light switch was on the ceiling... Why, I have no clue but I was too short to reach it so no... More

Came in and the woman at the desk was incredibly unhelpful with normal questions such as: How much does a taxi cost to the ferry and Is there a local bus closeby we can take to the ferry instead of a taxi. Her response was: Is 100 L too expensive for you? My answer : Yes, and what does it... More

Badly maintained and smelly hostel, dodgy feeling while being there. Not sure how they work together with Jungle River, as no reservation came throug and we had to make a new booking there, after we spent the night at banana republic (and they did try to let us pay in advance for services they do not offer). Don't go there... More

As mentioned by others the original place is closed and the address given by google maps is incorrect. Luckily some locals pointed me in the right direction and I found the right place about 3 blocks away. The hostel is reasonably priced and fine to stay for a night while passing through to Utila as Le Ceiba isn't really a... More

I should have checked reviews before comming to this hostel! Apart of what the reviews say about poor cleaning and noise, it turned out to be the worst experience I had in a hostel during my 11 months trip. I stayed in the dormitory, which is a bunch of beds disposed along a corridor! It was just me in the... More

Stayed for one night in April. Lonely planet information is incorrect and hostel is not at address given. Taxi eventually found it though. Stayed in a private room, first room was clearly not clean from last guests so changed to another. Booked jungle river lodge rafting with free nights accommodation for the next day through the hostel as we thought... More
