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

Took almost 30mins to find the place as the origial place was closed and when I asked the locals no one knew where it was! When I got there was charged $10 for a Dorm room but there was No Room as the 10-12 beds were in a corridor area open to All, No lockers at all. The Shared bathroom... More

Normally I am not an review writer but I just landed at this hostel and am surprised in a negative way, no backpacker atmosphere, just a normal very basic hostel with no extra like a socialising room, now reading all the terrible reviews I feel like "urgh,should have checked before" and the dorm price of 12$ is surprisingly high...actually I...

We tried to stay here, but figured they have bed bugs in the middle of the night. The owner left already with our money, and the night guard was not really helpful getting our money back. We figured they are already aware of the problem and just ignore it. They have the bugs in every room, dorm and privates. DON'T... More

Unhelpful staff who were unconcerned with the fact that the toilet and shower were not working due to no running water. Random mattresses shoved in corner of the dorm making it very cramped. Not a pleasant or welcoming atmosphere. Unsure if there are other budget options in La Ceiba but worth trying to find an alternative to this hostel. Agree... More
