We stayed at a number of hostels whilst travelling around Honduras, and this was one of the best.
We stayed in a dorm room (3 bunk beds) which was $5 a night and excellent value. There were also private rooms for a few dollars more.
The facilities were spotlessly clean, the shared toilet and shower facilities were situated outside, and we never had a problem having to queue up or wait for them to be free. There is also an area for laundry washing, and the sun soon dries the clothes out! You can sit and relax on the small patio outside, or inside in the seating area (where there is a lot of helpful information about local attractions and onward transport options). In addition there is free purified water to drink.
The location is a little bit out of the town, but although it means a short walk, the benefit is that it is generally nice and quiet. When we arrived on the bus, we took a motor taxi to get to the hostel which is a good idea if you are carrying big bags, don't want to walk up the hill, and aren't quite sure of the way! We found the owner to be rather unfriendly, but perhaps he was just having a bad couple of days.
