“Clean, Comfortable and well equipped”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Yuma's house courtyard garden with coconut palms, swinging hammocks and colourful surroundings is actually a part of the beach, situated between 2 water taxi piers you don't have to stumble far to find this perfect little haven.

It couldn't be cleaner, or more comfortable. The kitchenS are spotless, fridges cleaned daily and come equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal (including oil, spices & sugar), however there is so much varied and delicious & affordable food on the island its hardly worth cooking. Look out for street food carts selling pasties, incredible cakes and even full meals of rice/beans & stewed chicken. Many restaurants also offer good deals and delicious dishes.

Susanne is very knowledgeable about everything on the island and is happy to recommend tour companies depending on your style and restaurants depending on your palate/budget, she and her staff are always happy to help and ensure everyone is personally welcomed to the house & island.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO BOOK AHEAD AS OFTEN FULLY BOOKED.

I went to Yuma's as soon as I got to Caye Caulker and it was full for the following two days. I made a reservation for three days and came back...it was worth the wait. The owner and staff were very nice and friendly (and helpful...travel tips, price info etc.).

The best part about Yuma's is how clean it is. The kitchen is spotless and the fridge isn't over flowing with leftovers and spoiled food like some hostels.

I say in Caye Caulker it's the best place to stay and I stayed at other hostels so I can definitely say Yuma's is way better.

We were really surprised by how clean this place was, and how nice the breeze was at night. At first we were a little weary of no ac, but the fan proved to be more than sufficient. There's a kitchen on each floor for you to use, and there's plenty of toilets/showers available. The location is also amazing (right by the water taxis, right on the waterfront). Susanne is also extremely nice and accommodating.

We were also surprised by how "honest" the place felt. We were never concerned that clothes we left drying outside on the clothesline would be stolen, or our belongings rummaged through (as we never had a single incident in the week that we've stayed there for).

Wanted to stay here for 2 nights, end up staying for 5. Yuma's House is a really relaxed place and is a very clean and beautiful hostel. Like other comments before, it's not a partyhostel and the "rules" here may scare you off in the beginning, but it's just a couple of normal demands for hostelguests. Suzanne is awesome, her 2 dogs are the cutest things ever and the hostel is a nice place to stay at! Will come back somewhere in the future!

Room Tip: Use a lot of repellent if you want to use the hammocks in the mornings or evenings. Sandflies will g...

Looking around in Caye Caulker Yumas House is one of the best choices to stay if you are looking for something clean and for a very good price. The atmosphere is welcoming and the stuff is friendly. No bugs clean and quiet. Probably one of the most popular hostals on the island fully booked every night and a lot of backpacker traffic.

Room Tip: The dubble bed rooms are very nice, the dorm for 4 persons is totaly fine, but try to get a room on...

Yuma's was a brilliant choice for us in caye caulker. Excellent location, right where you get off the water taxi and everything you need is close by. It has a chilled atmosphere which we really enjoyed. It is clean, comfortable and quiet. Very good layout and the best equipped hostel kitchen I've ever seen.

The only downside was I didn't think there are enough bathrooms available for the number of people but everything else was amazing!

Highly reccommend !!

We researched and this is probably the cheapest reliable place to stay on Caye Caulker. The dorm room wher I stayed wasn't very well ventilated, so I was very hot at night, but maybe I'm just a wimp because it didn't seem to bother anyone else! I love the quiet and chill atmosphere and appreciate the neat and comfortable environment here. Highly recommended if you want to save your money!

Room Tip: They fill up fast, so reserve ahead of time!
