We were welcomed very well as a group of 12. The owner went to quite some trouble to organize some activities (amongst which the scooter rental). This hostel is just about as fancy as you may expect considering the price you pay. This is not a negative thing per se, just don’t expect great comfort. The rooms were quite dark... More

Great location, great prices and the best people. A fun, cool place to stay with great rooms and great common areas. Right near West End, and close to all the great bars, beaches and dive centres. You won't be disappointed.

A good value for the money in a good location. 10 minute walk to beach, bars and restaurants. Kitchen/common area great place to make new friends and get good information as a new arrival. Most important, this place has integrity. Sophie was so kind, understanding and helpful. I left my GoPro camera on the bed above mine when I checked... More

That hostel was really nice, mainly because of the way the owner (a Spanish lady) treated her guests. The rooms were all right, they could be bigger or at least with less people inside. Internet connection was good compared to other places in the Island (optical fiber)

Having found this hostel in the lonely planet guide, we thought that this would be a nice budget hostel to stay in one night. However the person working there was incredibly rude, short and uninformative. Not only where the various spiders to be found on our mattresses but the pillows and bed sheets were a palling quality. Our room was... More

I came to Roatan as a traveler, and on the first day I fell in love with its amazing beaches and the richest reef that I've ever seen. After losing my credit carts and with no money, I found refuge volunteering in Buena Onda hostel ran by a Spanish party girl, Sofie, who was as pretty as a flower and... More

All of the good reviews about this gem are true. The rooftop deck is amazing, the kitchen large and well-equipped, There are his/hers bathrooms with nice sinks and it's a short walk into the West End. Sophie and staff are helpful and kind and the hostel seems to attract a certain type of traveller: friendly, outgoing and inclusive. The only... More

We stayed at Buena Onda on our last night coming back through Roatan, and I wish we had booked it on our first leg as well! It is beautiful, just off the main strip and everyone was super friendly. Certainly the best way to meet amazing people and enjoy the relaxing nature of the island. There were kittens, what more... More
