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

Hostel La Buena Onda was one of the most incredible hostel experiences I've ever had. Sophie the owner is fantastic, and helps you with whatever you may need. Sophie and Alvaro (the guy who helps out with the hostel) are extremely helpful and make you feel at home as soon as you walk in the front screen door. Not to... More

I recently traveled to Roatan for a quick break from graduate school demands back in the states. Being a student, I researched budget accommodations and booked a bed at Buena Onda about 5 weeks in advance- and I'm glad I did! When I arrived they were booked and stayed fairly booked throughout my stay. The location is perfect- just a... More

Initially I was sceptical on arriving at the place and resisted paying until I had stayed at least one night (I had booked in for seven nights). Well, the place grew on me and now I can say that it is definitely a decent place to hang up your boots for a while. I stayed for 8 nights in the... More

I totally agree with previous positive reviews and comments about close location, lovely roof, WiFi and etc. Great place to stay, clean and cozy. Not fancy, with outdoor shower, onsite kitchen, but for such price, we had more then we paid for. And the host is just AMAZING.

As far as hostels go this place is amazing! Cozy, clean and close to where you want to be. Sophie the owner is really nice and super helpful and the dog Churri is THE BEST. The hostel is a 5 min walk from West End with tons of restaurants and bars and from there the water taxi is 10 min... More
