We stayed at RBH Oct 10-18. Mel was kind enough to prearrange our airport pick up and after a whole day of travel, it was a relief to find our driver waiting when we walked out of the terminal.

Mel met us st the gate and showed us to our room. The next day we met some of the ot

Thanks so much for all your kind words, I'm glad you had a great stay. I really enjoyed your company. I feel so blessed to have a business that I really enjoy, always meeting interesting people from all over the place. You're right about the sense of family and community here- it's a really warm environment, and lots of lasting friendships made here. Looking forward to seeing you in March! Mel

Thanks so much for the review- spelling looks great :) I'm still hoping to kick my diet coke addiction, but if I do, I'm still happy to head out for a walk around the neighbourhood with any of my hostel buddies. Looking forward to having you back again soon! Mel

We planned to stay for 2 nights, ended up staying 5. The hostel is one of the best we have stayed in. Mel the owner runs the hostel amazingly and gives a detailed intro to the island. Room was comfortable and clean, could have stayed a lot longer.

Great hostel with great facilities! It was a little bit farther than I expected from West End and West Bay, but it was easy to get a quick bus or taxi to these places. We stayed in the dorms, which were a great price. They were small, but for $10 on Roatan it was worth it! Me

Thanks for taking the time to review. I just finished a little dorm renovation project- we removed the partial wall that separated the sleeping area from the little nook with the chair, to open up the room, and moved one set of bunks next to the window- it feels so much bigger now! Check out the Facebook page, I just posted some pics. Hope you'll be back again in the future :) Mel

"Dorms are a great price, but small. You may want to pay a little extra for a private room if you want personal space."
"I recomend staying on either 2 or 4 bed dorm, or even getting the private room with share bathroom that is on top of the kitchen"
"Private rooms are very comfortable"
"I loved the upper loft rooms, which share a great little communal area to enjoy some down time."
"Look ar the rooms. Ask questions. Open yer mouth. Dont complain later. My advice"
