I totally recommend Pause Hostel. They started this place to make some money to take good care and feed street cats that the owner found. Don't worry, the cats are not out all at a time and the area is big so it is comfortable having them around. The atmosphere is great there. A lot of people there volunteer there...

I had a great time in Pause : the hostel is small, with just a 10 bed dorm and 2 or 3 cabins, which is great. The dorm is very big, each bed has a fan and a electric plug and there's small lockers for everyone. The wifi is decent, the kitchen has all you need to cook. The toilets...

This place is an incredible value! I had a bed in the 6 bed deluxe unit, which has its own bathroom. The bathroom and floors are clean enough, as you must leave your shoes off in the room. You'll get used to walking barefoot on the floors. There are drawers that can be locked with your own padlock, but they...

After a 24 hour trip to caye caulker I was exhausted and extremely hot. I got to this hostel and immediately did not like it. I liked the cat refuge part of it but everything else was awful. I got into my dorm and they gave me sheets for my bed, I start making it and it's so dirty then...

The animals are the priority here. Our 6 bed dorm was pretty clean, loads of space and good fans, given sheets to make our own bed. Shower powerful but cold ('cause Belize) otherwise clean. Kitchen only has one working gas ring but otherwise well equipped - would be difficult to cook and use fridge space when busy. Kayaks and hammocks...

I hesitate to write a negative review because I really want to support the cause of Pause. But I guess if my review can somehow help Pause to improve, it will be worth it. So I hope Pause management is reading this. I will first describe the events that took place:  I booked a dorm bed for 5 nights...

Hello, this is a situation that affects many if not all of the hostels on the island , from time to time, however in August a hurricane came through & opened the walls of the hostel which we repaired but because it also distroyed the habitat of these rodents they are finding their way into the rooms which we repaired...

We stayed here for 4 nights in the sweet pea pod, and it was perfect! The place is set on a lovely bit of beach, with lots of hammocks and areas to sit and chill. You can swim off the jetty or relax there looking out at the sea, which was a great highlight (although we did see a stingray...
