My husband and I stayed in a small apartment here for a week and really enjoyed our stay. We are always happy when we have a kitchen, and we did here, it definitely helps with budget. The apartment was a great space and even though we had to pay extra for AC we were very glad to have it, the... More

I had a blast at this hostel! It's located pretty close to everything and Cecilia is awesome. The people who stay at this hostel are what made it so great. It was a little dirty, but I didn't mind it given the location of Roatan and its surroundings. I would come back in a heartbeat should I visit Roatan again.

Planned to stay here for three nights but ended up staying for over 8 nights due to the excellent time I had at this hostel! The staff were exceptional and Cecelia made me feel welcome right away, giving me a tour of the lovely pool out back and the rooms! Stayed in several rooms throughout my stay, the dorm was... More

My boyfriend and I made a trip to Roatan by one week and we stayed at Roatan Backpackers Hostel in a share room :) we saved a lot of money and the hostel is in a good location, we could know Sandy Bay, West End and West Bay walking only! We made a lot of activities like dive, snorkel, see... More

Cecelia is a sweet heart and helped us out when we needed by giving us tips and tricks to get around Roatan. The best part of the trip was meeting travelers from around the world and sharing family meals with them in the common area. Each day we all went out together and got to explore Roatan's snorkeling and food!... More

I stayed for a week and a half and its one of the best places ever. I had amazing times meeting people swimming in the pool and organising bbqs. It has an amazing atmosphere great location right in the middle of everything.

This place has a nice atmosphere and the owner, Cecilia, is really nice, but my experience staying at the hostel wasn't the best. The room I was in was tiny and crammed full of beds. There really was no room to move and it felt claustrophobic. The door also opened directly onto the social area where people would sit and... More

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

I'm glad Cecilia, the manager, took good care of you, but I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay overall. I agree that the dorm is small when it's full (usually there's just 2-3 people, but on busy times when all 6 beds are booked, there's not a lot of extra space), and I've already planned to resolve that problem this...

This place is amazing: located in Sandy Bay, it's a 5 minute walk to the beach, right around the corner from the convenience store and some local eateries, and a quick, cheap cab ride away from West End. There are plenty of room options, and a pool to cool off in when it's hot outside (which is always, I can't... More

I loved it! Cecilia is super nice and down to earth. She is professional, but also parties with the guests. My loft room was small, clean, and cool enough with the fan. I did a lot of cooking in the kitchen. The propane stove and borrowed utensils were more than adequate. My shower was hot 80% of the time, and... More
