I stayed here for a few nights and had a great experience. You can purchase a delicious breakfast, which I highly recommend. The staff are all sweet and super helpful in providing tips for your stay on Roatan and helping you navigate transportation options. The location is a little off the beaten path, but with that comes a lot of peace and it's nice to go to the more touristy areas in the day but have a calm place to return to. Pool and wifi were great and I hope to come back!

This lovely little piece of paradise affords this avid scuba diver the means to stay solo for an extended time in a safe and comfortable home. I love the casita, the food, the pool and access to the beach, restaurants and grocery shopping. Mel, the owner, makes you feel like family. Such an awesome place!

We were stuck in this hostel during corona crisis for a week and we couldn‘t have imagined a better place to stay! Mel, the owner of the hostel and her friend Melinda helped us with everything and drove us to the airport and the ATM. We celebrated the 9th birthday of the hostel and had dinner and played games all together. During the days we spent our lockdown time laying at the pool or playing volleyball. As we all came along very well we really felt at home in this cute hostel. Everything was clean, everyone was helpful, well-equipped kitchen, the beach and the supermarket were just around the corner and the pool was our highlight! Best place and group of people to spend a lockdown with!

A hidden gem of an oasis on the beautiful island of Roatan! As a solo traveler on a budget, who prefers a private room, I appreciated Roatan Backpackers many options. I decided on a single room with bathroom and it was perfect! Quiet, clean, private, with it's own very comfy hammock and muskoka chair for long hours of relaxing, what more can one woman need?! The staff are knowledgeable, kind and always available. And the pool and deck?! Perfect for long hours of enjoying the warm Honduran sun or making friends with the other travellers. I highly recommend Roatan Backpackers hostel as the perfect spot, especially if you're on a budget but even if your'e not, it's a precious spot to spend your time

Walk to a big grocery store, snorkelling and SCUBA diving. 2USD taxi to West End and that scene. Variety of rooms from cheap to midrange. The backpacker crowd are chatty and collegial and I met a great guy there last year!
