We are here to help and we will make sure you know where you are going and you know how to get there and that you are fully aware of all the things to see in and around the village.
The Hostel always has a good atmosphere, a wide range of music and fun people to meet and folk have good things to say about the place. We now have a bar that sells booze at backpacker prices.
If you are backpacking or on holiday in Belize or traveling through Latin America take some time to checkout Hopkins for water sports, wild life and nature reserves and true Garifuna culture.
Within a 30 second walk from the hostel there is The King Casava bar and restaurant, internet cafe, cafes, the beach, and a supermarket. A 5 minute walk will take you to several more bars, restaurants and shops.
