We stayed in a private bedroom at Yuma's place. The hostel looks cool, nice views and cool decorations. Everything is clean (also the kitchens) and the hostel is central to everything. Downsides: there is no airconditioning and the showers are cold. But, if you stay in the season we were there, for less money you can get a room with aircon and hot and cold water for less money (if you look for a double room). It will not look that cool, but will be more comfortable. Just walk a bit more south from the boat. We're used to a lot, but here we really missed the aircon!

I stayed here for four nights in a dorm bed and loved every night of my stay. Breakfast isn't included although there are two well equipped kitchens. It's not a party hostel which I loved. There's a very relaxed vibe which all the hammocks and chairs allow. Susanne is very helpful but she does run a tight ship but this just means the place is kept spotless and you feel ultra safe there. Book ahead as it's very popular. Ideally situated for the water taxi.

Room Tip: Reserve rather than rock up to avoid disappointment. Ask for a bottom bunk in the dorms.

Very nice place to bed down for a few days on a budget, a charming little hostel that enables you to just kick back and relax...clean rooms, great kitchens and a very relaxing garden combine to create a subtle ambiance that is rarely found in the central america "hostel scene" prices are reasonable but this place is constantly full with online reservations so it is a big gamble just showing up, you've been warned...the owner Susanne is an awesome host, and altho sometimes is a little militant with keeping the ethos of the place intact, will always go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. highly recommend staying here if you want a relaxing stay.....Kudos to Yumas house Belize.

Room Tip: all the rooms are charming

We stayed there in April 2014 and would recommend the hostel to anyone visiting caye caulker. It is located at the beach where the boats from belize city arrive and is close to everything happening on the island. The rooms and nice and very clean. The owner of the hostel is super nice and was really helpful during our stay!! In total we can recommend the place and would def. return if we visit the island again !!

This hostel is in a great location on the water and the building is cute.. But apart from that I didn't love it. I had high expectations because of the reviews and was disappointed. There are so many rules and signs everywhere.. You cannot feel comfortable. Not once did I see anyone sitting around with a beer, probably because you would feel guilty if you did! It wasn't social, but more for groups traveling & socialising only together and couples who want somewhere quiet. Wouldn't recommend for a solo traveler.

Stayed here 4 nights during a 10 day trip to Belize. It was our first time in a hostel style place and we weren't sure what to expect but this was perfect for what we needed. We had a private room at the end of the hall. Arriving after dark it was perfectly located right next to the ferry dock so we didn't have to wander around looking for it. Rooms are bare bones but clean. Loved all the outdoor common space and hammocks. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

I stayed a few nights in June 2014. It was spotless!! Cozy, amazing hammocks and chair swings to hang out in, super close to the taxi docks, great kitchen, and Susanne was absolutely sweet!! I heard a few people at a cafe on the island complaining about how strict she was, but it makes the hostel feel very safe. Wifi was good, slow at times when everyone was on it.
I stayed in a private room and it was comfortable, just a bed, fan, and a night table with a lock on the top drawer. The fan was great, but it was still pretty hot at night.
As everyone has said, it is not a party hostel, but it is super easy to meet people and I loved staying here.
