Pedro's Inn Backpacker Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Four friends and I stayed in the hostel and it has been the worst experience ever. Employees are not friendly and they get to show guests some pretty nasty attitude. The bar tender claimed she was the manager and yet she was extremely rude. When we complained about that the fan in our room was not working and that the toilets were clogged, she got pissed-off and started screaming after us that we were the ones that clogged it. Hospitality starts with your employees and after this experience and seriously would not recommend this place ever. Sadly for them we were all tourism students about to go in the field and we were out there for the experience.

Room Tip: Banana Beach have wonderful employees, high quality, satisfaction.

Yet again another false Trip Advisor report. We do not have a female bartender and obviously one would have been able to talk to the owner in a case like this, as he lives onsite and is in the office every day. Also, we have check with maintenance and the toilets in the hostel have had no issues, nor have we had to replace a fan in a hostel room since before Christmas, so our best guess is that you didn't even stay here, and obviously enjoy making false trip advisor reports.

I stayed there twice and after such a great experience the first time it was a no brainer to decide where to stay the next time. Clean rooms, great price, friendly staff, great location and you get to meet lots of great people while there. The bartenders are really nice and very helpful in showing you or telling you of all the good spots to check out if your traveling alone. It's very convenient too: located close to the beach, bike rentals on-site, free wifi, two pools, kayaks you can use for free you just need to get them to the beach and access to Caribbean Villas because the owner owns both spots. Looking forward to another trip there.

Pedro's Inn was a wonderful experience... It is a great price for the accommodations you receive. I stayed in the hotel (there is also a hostel) the room was clean and comfortable, it had a t.v., nice bathroom and shower. There are two pools on the property as well as a restaurant/bar. The restaurant's food is amazing, the prices are very reasonable and the bar is always a fun time. They will deliver food and drinks out to the pool as well. It is a great atmosphere, lots of people stopping in during travel or staying for months at a time. Peter (or Pedro) the owner is a great guy, he will go out of his way to help you and has a lot of useful connections on the island. He made it so easy to book dive trips and plan excursions for when we traveled inland. Overall, great experience, I highly recommend staying here.

The rooms in the hostel are very basic. Our main complaint was that there were no outlets in the room. However, the next day someone installed outlets in every single room! The two pools were very nice and always clean! Great place to hang out. The bar downstairs was super fun and there was always fun activities if you didn't feel like going into town! The staff was awesome and Peter himself is a great guy. Would highly recommend for people wanting to meet other people and ready to party!

I stayed in the hostel- the rate was very reasonable, and Paul and the other staff were friendly. I'd stay again. The multi-day bike rental was fairly priced, and nobody got too excited when I lost my bike lock. I just went down to the hardware store and got a replacement.

Easy pickup on the dock across the street for diving with Amigos del Mar, and just down the street from Scuba School Belize.

Room Tip: If you're a picky person, don't stay in a hostel.

We arrived without a reservation and were quickly checked into a private room. The room was in the hotel area across the road from the rest of the hostel. Our bed was super comfy and big, air-con worked well and the T.V. was new and awesome. The room was very clean, other than a dried urine puddle at the base of the toilet. Pools were great too, lots of room in the lounge chairs. The restaurant was the downfall, the Bartender clearly didn't give a care about anything. Constantly texting and eating behind the bar. Our pizza took an hour when we were 1 of 2 tables in there. When we asked about it, he said "it'll be out when its ready". After our pizza arrived, we were enjoying it although it was a bit bland, we asked for a dipping sauce and it tasted off. I'd give this place a second chance but wasn't overly impressed.

Room Tip: The rooms in the hotel across the road are away from the party

We are so glad you enjoyed Pedro's accommodation. We have to apologize for the system at the Restaurant. We do have a delivery service also, and it may have been that we had a large delivery order. As we make every pizza from scratch, the minimum time period is 25 minutes. The dipping sauce is made fresh and we will talk to the bartender about his attitude. Please note, We are the only budget hotel that has a restaurant - and indeed some of the 5 star resorts ($300 per night places) do not have a restaurant or bar onsite.

My friend and I originally booked three nights at Pedro's Inn, planning on spending most of our trip on Caye Caulker. We were having so much fun we couldn't bring ourselves to leave and ended up spending our whole vacation there.

The rooms may be small, but everything else they have going for them most definitely makes up for it. The two big pools, awesome bar, and friendly staff all made for an excellent stay. Highly recommended.
