“Chilled place with really good value rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

I stayed here for 4 nights and shared a room with 2 friends. We ended up paying 15 Dollars in total (so 5 each) which was incredible value. The rooms are basic, have a fan and are quite clean. There are shared showers which were also clean all the time we stayed here. They have a kitchen (actually they have 2 since they have 2 main buildings) and a fridge so can you also prepare you own food. The people working there were really friendly, especially the lady running the pulperia next door. The place is not next to the beach but that doesnt matter on little corn because everything is close by. I can totally recommend staying there!

We stayed here, 4 of us then 6. It was top notch. Randy the owner is a lovely jolly geezer with much advice and generosity. Great big kitchen and eating area, close to the coconut bread and fresh fish that you can buy and cook yourself. Seek out the bread and fish, it's close.

The room was lovely, clean sheets and towels whenever you want, lovely free drinkable water.

Close to everything but in a nice quiet setting.

Really enjoyed our time on Little Corn and at Tree Brothers.

Well ok, it's not just right at the beach.
But it's clean, cheap ($5USD pp for a room we shared with 4 friends) and has a good kitchen! The owner is super nice, we had a very nice week there.

The only thing is that there is no electricity from 6 am to midday, which means that it gets really hot in the rooms in the morning, because the fans don't work any more.

We were three people sharing a room for $20 (if you stay for a while, normal is $25) which we thought was a good island price. The room was large enough and even had two rocking chairs. We had in-suite shower (with great water pressure) and a toilet. The only thing we wished for is that our room would have been cleaned once during our week stay and our trash taken out.

The hostel has a kitchen, which was our main factor booking this place. It's hard to find a hostel with the kitchen on the island. Cleanliness of the kitchen is great, every morning they would thoroughly clean it. In general the common areas were clean. Also 3 brothers have a weld, which will totally safe to drink and will save you lots of money.

Best thing about 3 brothers? The family! They are so helpful and awesome, hearts of good and joy. They really care about guests having good time and make you feel like part of the family.

So, if you have been traveling for a while and feel a bit homesick - go to 3 brothers and become part of the family! Save money by cooking your own meals and drinking weld water - great backpacker deal.

We stayed one night at three brothers as our place of choice was booked.
Upon arrival Randy showed us our small room but didn't show us the kitchen or mentioned that they had a well with potable water but was happy to sell us water from his shop.
Beds were concrete blocks with sorry excuses for mattresses on them. My side had virtually no springs whereas my girlfriend was poked in her back all the time.
As all over the village the hostel was frequented by mosquitos due to the lack of wind.
Happy to leave for Carlito's the next day :-)

I arrived in Little Corn after a rather traumatic and stormy boat ride. I was exhausted and flustered and saw a sign pointing to 3 brothers - a hostel I remembered being recommended by other travelers. I made the 3 minute walk down the sidewalk (there are no cars on Little corn) from the lively part of the island and was greeted by the very friendly owner.

The hostel is clean, has an outdoor patio, indoor dining area, and I believe the only communal kitchen on the island (food is not cheap in little corn), in a pretty convienant location (perfect for, if anything, catching the 6:30 AM boat back to Big Corn)

This along with The Cool Spot is the type of place that's friendly for solo travelers-- cheap single rooms and environment condusive to meeting other people.

My first night I stayed in a clean & comfortable private room with a very nice bathroom for $12 (originally $15, but kindly lowered when I expressed concern about prices) My next 3 night nights were in a private with shard bathroom for $10. This is on par with the cheapest prices on both Big and Little Corn. But the kitchen makes 3 brothers the easiest way to stay on budget while visiting a place with no cash machines. I nearly left to seek out a place closer to the sea-- but found that nowhere else displayed a better value for the money. Pretty much anywhere on Little Corn is within a short walk to the beach anyway.

Also worth mentioning- all dive shops offer a 5% discount for guests at 3 Brothers.

This is a family-run hostel with clean rooms and a very helpful couple that do everything they can to make you feel at home. They have rooms with our without private bath, we paid 15 dollars for a room with two beds, a small porch and private bath. It was clean and well equipped but with no air coming through so it was a bit dark and hot. There is a shared kitchen, a big dining hall and hammocks. Two minutes from the beach.
The hotel is in the village which is god, that means you don't have to hike through pitch-black jungle in the evening after dinner. Also you meet nice people because all the backpackers stay here.

Room Tip: They have lots of rooms, ask to see a couple before you decide. One even has private kitchen.
