This place has the most disrespectful person working there by the name of Damian. He has disrespected many women living on caye caulker. How could you have someone that has no respect for women working at a place like this

Best for people who are on a severe budget or traveling and need last minute accommodations I recommend going to the Juice/Farmers' Shop next to Errolyns. There, buy some fruits and veggies, and go to any convenience/grocery store for eggs. Cook at the hostel and save some money/stay healthy for breakfasts. I recommend getting bananas/plantains, and I know apples are also available. Also note that if you bring back empty beer bottles you'll get 25 cent (Belizean) off your next purchase. Beers in stores are sold individually. The location is GREAT. Sunsets can be seen on the west side of the island/on kayak (which are free to use), as long as kayaks are returned promptly after sunset. It is near Errolyns and on the middle/north side of the island close to, well, where everything else is. This is a bare bones hostel, but that's exactly what I was looking for. Oscar and Damien (aka DJ) were very helpful and are almost always present to answer questions (unless they left for the day or are running errands). Oscar was kind enough to refund me when I decided to change my plans and go to San Pedro. He also used his membership so I got a discount on the water taxi. DJ got food from Mama Liz's as a local so I saved some money that way. Many of the people I met decided to extend their stay by several days. To me, that signals that this island and this hostel are of great value, especially if these people had been traveling for months through South America. I met many fantastic people in the common area from literally all over the world. Important note: bring your own water bottle, they provide water! I stayed in the dorm room next to the kitchen. It is hot, but there are fans next to each bed. Expect to sweat and for mosquitos to be present due to the island. There is a powerplant of some sort nearby. I didn't notice the sound most of the time. On many evenings, we could hear beautiful pleasant live singing music (think: country or soft ballads) from the resort next door. Expect to naturally get up around 5-6am because of the sunlight. Bring a lock, an eye mask, and ear plugs because hey, it's a hostel. I recommend max 4 day stay. By day 3 you'll feel relaxed but ready for something new on the island.

One of the worst hostels I have ever stayed at. My friend and I arrived to the hostel a mere 15 minutes late and the owner had left, and we were told that he had given our booking to someone else. We were left with nowhere to stay for the night. The next day we were very calm and went to speak to the owner. He was very very rude and made it out to be our own fault, and he smirked whenever we said anything. Overall, the hostel is falling apart and is so unclean. No running water, definitely no hot water. Do not stay here.

We walked in off the streets and the owner let us feed their cats even though we were not staying on the property. There are a few bungalows and cats everywhere, fenced in and some caged in large outdoor cages. They are on the water and have a pier.

We didn't stay at this hostel but hitched a ride with our case of beer. Thank you so much, we did enjoy the beer and our stay on CC. It's nice people like this hostel employee that make a place what it is.

The hostel is located on the west side of the island. It is sheltered from the strong winds that blow in from the east during the rainy season. It has a dock at the back which is perfect for relaxing on and kayaks that are free to take out for a paddle (check out the giant tarpons in a bay 200m up from the hostel ) . It is a quiet, well run hostel with a good atmosphere. Some things look a bit shabby but really that's in keeping with the island don't expect a 5 star resort here. Shout out to Oscar and DJ for being excellent hosts always willing to help and answer questions. In my opinion it's the best travellers hostel on the island.

Overall this place is a fine cheap stay but i would probably fork out a little more cash for a)security b) cleanliness. The place is very badly managed, there is frequently stuff stolen (we had boardshorts and flipflops go missing). I beleive this isnt from other backpackers but from outsiders who can freely walk into the property (theres no real fence or front desk). There was no free coffee while we were here because the machine had been stolen the week before. Definatly lock all valuables away. There is no cleaner, dishes can stay in the sink for several days until a guest gets sick of it and cleans up. Toilets are not in the best shape. Floors do not get swept that i can see ie- sand in bedrooms. The views/ location/ hammocks and kayaks are fantastic as everyone says. The other guests we met here are awesome. The place just needs a bit more TLC.

Let’s face it, a hostels an hostel isn’t it ... but pause is a little slice of peace and tranquillity on the paradise of the isle of caye caulker!! With its own private gardens that lead right up to the beach and it’s own private jetty ... it superb! What .. $25 Belize got a bed a night ... that’s barely 10 pound ! Oscar who runs it is an awesome bloke ... generally clean, the place has character .. all the cats are a bit strange at first but they’re lovely ... nice kitchen area with plenty of space to prep food , showers , what more do you need ! Always felt it was very safe there and weren’t worried about my stuff in the slightest ... but there’s lockers anyway if you wanna make extra sure , just bring a padlock. Free kayaks you can take out !! I ❤️ pause

We booked on Hostelworld a couple of days before we were due to get to Caye Caulker and we were looking forward to the stay. Unfortunately when we arrived the hostel had overbooked due to some Hostelworld errors and we were unable to stay. The owner offered us a double bed in the volunteers room however this room was very unclean so we decided to go elsewhere. From the overall look everything seemed a bit run down but that's only what we saw from first glance. The owner apologised and gave us our money back so in that sense was accommodating. Overall I'm happy this happened as we got to stay at an amazing hostel called Go Slow and would fully recommend that instead!!

An excellent hostel. I was unwell during my visit and the staff were excellent, helped me out a lot and for that I thank them. The location is perfect, facilities are good and most importantly, the beds are comfortable!
