I stayed in the doorm and it was so disgusting!! They didnt clean the room at all and the toilet was worst. Also one girl in the room had a dog living there and the dog was peeing on the floor. And the hostel doesn't look the same as in the pictures on the website. So dont stay here!!

There are other options at this hostel but I think I lucked out by getting the best accommodations. Although I was by myself, the place easily sleeps 3-4 - extra mattress option plus has a nice living room/kitchen area. Just your basic necessities - hot plate, fridge, sink, shower, toilet and cute little porch in the trees. On top of... More

Cecelia was so sweet and helpful! My husband and I only stayed in la casita, so I cannot speak for any of the other rooms. La casita was a great value! It was probably the nicest hostel we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed in a lot). The location was also good! It was a five minute cab ride... More

Realmente el mejor hostal en el que me he quedado. Sobre todo por la Atención. Me hicieron sentir como en casa. Really the best Hostel I ever been. They make you feel welcome and at home. The administration gives you tons of information about the island and best places, transport, etc. Really recommend it to anyone interested in visiting Roatan.... More

Staying at the Roatan Backpackers' Hostel was one of the funest times on our whole trip. I wish we could have stayed in Roatan longer. Mel was so helpful and the afternoon dip in the pool was amazingly refreshing.

In february 2014 I spent a few nights in this hostal. I stayed in a dorm, which was tidy and had it´s own toilet and shower. The hostal was well situated, on walking distance of sandy bay where there is ample opportunity for excellent snorkling. Especially Ceci, a temporary Honduranian worker, made the stay worth it as she was very... More

Chose this hostel because of price. Was awarded with a great time, largely due to Cecilia, the won place. Very helpful in taking care of needs at the hostel and advice on any needs or questions for getting around the island. It's a short cab or bus ride to West end, and a short walk to the beach at Sandy... More

We arrived in Roatan at dark and were there barely 12 hours, leaving on a morning flight the next day. Thus I can't speak for the hostel at day or it's location to the beach etc. I can say that I am glad I only had to stay one night as the 6-bed dorm was far too small and felt... More

hostelMel, Owner at Roatan Backpackers' Hostel, responded to this review

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay-it's too bad you had such a short time, as most our guests like to stay several days, weeks or even months, and I think your impressions may have differed if you got a chance to explore our community and our grounds. The dorm is small, but it's just for sleeping and most guests... More
