Buena Onda Hostel is a place I always return to with great pleasure. It has it all: charme, security, a good vibe and most of all a host that will perfectly look after your wellbeing: Sophie. If you want to be in a safe place close to the seaside this is it, look no further. Property is fenced and the... More

Hostel was very clean-came back every night to beds made and even my clothes folded! Bathrooms cleaned everyday, hot water, nice shower. Sophie, the owner, is awesome! Felt very safe- armed guard at the gate every night. Short walk to town, conveniently located by petrol station which has the only good ATM in the area. Kitchen and common room were... More

Keep on walking... I was suppose to stay at this place when i visited Roatan last week, but i kept on walking! Very small dorm, with too many beds. Didn`t get a good first impression at all! Dirty floors and exspensive for this kind of sleeping..

Sophie is awesome. She is friendly, helpful, and makes you feel very welcome. I did not think the hostel was dirty or cluttered. I thought it was...a hostel...which....it what it is. I stayed here for two nights only. Once on my way going to Utila and then on the way back. Both times i was given fresh sheets upon arrival... More

I originally came to Buena Onda for two nights and was supposed to get an apartment for three weeks. Instead I ended staying here for almost a month. The first night other travelers made me feel at home and after that I never left. We had family dinners and lots of fun. The hostel itself is like many others with... More

This is a special place, but it was really the people that made it that way. As far as the dorm rooms go, Buena Onda was not any better than average. The dorm room had little air movement, and broken fans cluttered the floor space. After a few days the curtains on the only window fell down, and rather than... More

Spent 6 enjoyable nights here in January 2015 with the friendly staff and other travelers. This is a very basic hostel but it makes a good, safe place to call home five minutes outside of West End - the most vibrant part of Roatan. Rooms are kept clean but they are pretty dark and stuffy due to small windows. Common... More

Lots of hippie love vibes here. Basic rooms and hostel, but a nice place to socialize with people. Good location - a few places nearby to buy groceries. The mosquitos here are really terrible, so I think the hostel should have better screens on the door. When I was staying here one of the staff members got a fever and... More

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.
