Upon walking in, I immediately felt welcome. Cool little place with comfortable bunks and a laid back chill atmosphere. I will for sure stay here again, close to food and groceries or just a walk around town.

Very laid back hostel. Enhanced my stay in San Ignacio and if I return to Belize I would stay there again. Everyone was very social and respectful, very informative wand helpful. I even went out with Antoine and had a blast with him. Truly enjoyed my stay.

Bella's was a fun location - the building is neat and a lot of it is open air, including the kitchen and lots of seating/lounging complete with hammocks on the roof! It's also walking distance from many restaurants and the bus station. The wifi worked well, there were fans in the rooms, and the shower pressure was good (it was cold water, but that felt great after the heat and humidity of the day)!

Upon checkin, I wish we were given a more personal tour of the place to see where everything was and what was available to us. The private room with private bathroom was extremely hot with only 1 fan. The queen bed was terrible - neither my wife or I could sleep the entire night. Thankfully there was a bunk bed in the room with slightly more comfortable mattresses so we slept on that the next night. But the room was still too uncomfortably hot.

Response from Simone S, Manager at Bella's Backpackers

I'm sorry this was your experience while staying with us! We have an activity board in the main check in area with a bunch of things to do. Upon arrival we ensured that you knew where everything in the hostel was and if at any point you had any questions to notify us. In terms of the heat, we are getting closer to Summer and that is something we cannot control. However, if you had notified us about the one fan being a problem, we could have gotten you another fan. Nonetheless, Thank you for your feedback!
