I wasn't expecting much from a place (inexplicably) not in "Lonely Planet", but this place blew my expectations out of the water. As an avid foodie, I was astonished by the quality of everything on the menu I managed to get my chops around. Especially recommended are the haddock curry, the fish pizza and the french toast (for breakfast). The...

We arrive last in the afternoon and were heading to Belize in the morning. He was so helpful and arranged our ferry for us and...

My boyfriend and I stayed here in one of the double rooms. Rooms are simple but nice, no complaints. We were right off the main room and river so nice to see the water everyday. Food was great as well. The real prize winner is the owner Stewart. He had made everything so easy and convenient for us - told...

Casa nostra is a charming hostel in Livingston. The building is relatively new and has a very nice garden with direct access to the sea. The rooms are clean and the restaurant food great. Hostel owner Stewart is really friendly and helped us planning our stay and further travels. Definitely recommended!

We stayed 2 nights here. Stewart the owner was very helpful regarding tips on what to do with our day here and organising how we'd get to Flores after leaving. The room was clean and had a really comfortable bed. Could maybe do with a bit more space to put our things on (more side-table space or something). We also...
