Yuma's House Belize was the best hostel that I've stayed at. The property is in a good location and is well-maintained. Susanne (the owner) was very helpful while we were there, and helped us coordinate with our airline company to get our lost baggage while we were diving. The house is right next to both water taxi drop offs, and is right on the edge of downtown. We had absolutely no problem walking to various restaurants and dive shops. It's a hostel -- so don't come with expectations of a hotel. But if you need a place to stay that's clean, well-run, and has a great atmosphere, Yuma's House is your best bet. Rooms were regular sized, and come with a small locker and fans. You have access to two kitchens, which include condiments, pots, oil, etc. There is one bathroom w/ a shower upstairs, and four showers and three bathrooms downstairs. You can hang out by the picnic tables and hammocks in the garden area, or in the hammocks on Yuma's dock. (The dock is the perfect place to watch the sun rise!) I didn't find any bugs except for mosquitos, but there isn't any place on the island where you won't find them.
Summary: Great value, great people, great place. Stay here if you come to Caye Caulker!
