Really neat spot, with a good dorm set up (besides the one bunk bed in the hall across from the bathroom), and cool hangout area on the upper level. I could have loved the spot, however the kitchen and bathroom were pretty disgusting (and I am nowhere near a clean freak) and the management and workers gave off a pretty... More

Great location, great price, place was clean, WiFi was fast, lots of fans, roomy bunk areas, lockers, friendly vibe. The place has the basics covered and if you want more you should be expected to pay more. I enjoyed my visit and I think they are upgrading the place.

We stayed a few days here while exploring the surrounding area. This is a cheap hostel with decent beds. It had great rooftop common areas with couches and hammocks. A communal kitchen is present. It is located very close to the city center and is within walking distance of everything in town. No AC, just a number of fans. The... More

The hostel was laid back and cheap. The on-site staff was great (especially Rob!). The management however was terrible and rude! On our last day, we packed up our stuff, put it in the corner of the dorm room, and went to ATM caves at 7am. We came back at 4pm, grabbed our stuff and went to pay for the... More

Right in town, Mayan ruins just up the hill, with motorcycle rentals along the way! Arrange tours and trips and get tips on local sites! Beautiful rivers and pools, caves and jungle and endless beauty in the Cayo District! This is the place to experience it from!

Don't believe the bad reviews. Bella's is very clean, comfortable, relaxed and nicely decorated. I was promoted to write this review after spending 3 nights here and scanning through the negative comments. It's not the perfect hostel but it does the necessities well. - super clean - fans for all - nice views and adequate chill out space - bathrooms... More

Really cool hostel that feels like its a treehouse. Awesome areas to hang out in with hammocks and good views. The staff are friendly and able to look after you with ATM cave tours (Mayawalk are excellent to go with. Great knowledgeable guides) as well as a local waterfall tour which is lovely to cool off after a long chicken... More

We just stayed here for four nights in one of the many dorms. All of these dorms are very nice, with space for 3-5 people in each one, and fans for everyone. The rooms were clean (and cleaned daily), beds were comfortable. Isabelle and Robert, the managers, were both extremely helpful about what to do and where to eat. Since... More

We stayed in both Bella's - the one in Caye Caulker and this one. I liked this one a lot better. I mean, it helped that there were only three other backpackers staying there and they all happened to be super cool, but it also helped that the manager, Robert, was super awesome. He hung out with us that night... More
