This could be a nice hostel. Dorms are big, there's a kitchen where you can cook and you can also rent a canoe for free which is obviously nice. However, the owners don't put any effort in it , don't seem to like their job very much and never smile. They don't talk to you unless they want their money.... More

At first some positive things: The House is pretty cool. It could be in better conditions, but okay. use of kayaks and bikes is included. And the atmosphere is quiet as it should be in a hostel. Well maybe as a couple you wouldnt go into such a hostel. The island was fully booked cause of the lobsterfest, so we... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends. They stayed in a dorm whilst we booked a private room. At first we were taken aback when brought up 3 ladders to the very top of a wooden tower. There are no doors you just keep going up the levels passing through other rooms on the way. Although... More

Accommodation is average for the hostels on Caye Caulker, no air conditioning available in most rooms but free access to bikes, canoes and access to 2 kitchens. Friendly vibe with lots of backpackers, good location. There were fans in our dorm but still very hot to sleep,to be expected in a place as hot as this.

The hostel was fine to stay as a cheap alternative with a great location, great access to free canoes and nice enough rooms. But sadly the person who seemed in charge was really unfriendly to us and made us feel completely unwelcome every time we cane across him. On our final night we wanted to get an early night because... More

My three friends and I stayed for 5 nights at Bella's. Strongly recommend!! Culture: For reference, we are all late 20s-early 30s and into meeting people, drinking, hangin out, but not so into raging deep into the night. Bella's was perfect for us! It was so easy to meet other travellers, and everyone was super inviting. Lots of evenings on... More

We ended up staying here 4 nights which was much longer than planned. The hostel has a really chilled vibe and a great place to meet other travellers. The owners were friendly and equally as chilled out. You can hire canoes free of charge and explore round the island. You can also watch a great sunset from the decking. Slight... More

We stayed here for one week in march 2016 and really enjoyed the time. I would recommend this hostel to anybody who do not care about all things being perfect and especially to young people. Enjoy your stay at Caye Caulker and go fast!
