Description - Hostel

Roatan Backpackers' Hostel is a comfortable home away from home, with friendly, caring hosts that can provide you with lots of information about the island. There are shared options as well as privates, and daily, weekly and monthly rates are available. The hostel has a lovely pool and patio, as well as oceanview lizard lounge, garden pergola with hammocks, and several porches to relax at. Complimentary wi-fi is available.

Our dorm beds in our 6-bed dorm each have a lockable storage compartment under the bottom bunks, as well as individual shelves at the end of each bed, personal fan and light. There's also a overhead fan and window fan, luggage shelves, and bathroom with hot water. Dorm guests are welcome to make use of the communal kitchen.

For travelers on a budget who value a bit of privacy, our loft rooms are a good choice. There are 2 single loft rooms (very small rooms with a single bed and night table) and 1 double loft room (double bed, suitable for couples or singles wanting a bit more space), and the 3 rooms have a shared bathroom, and access to the communal kitchen.

We have several options that have their own bathrooms, as well as a few that have their own kitchens, for guests that enjoy the social aspect of a hostel, but would like space of their own. Several of the private options have optional a/c for a surcharge. Private options are self-catering.

We are located on a quiet residential side street, with several inexpensive local eateries nearby (3-5 min walk), as well as a few convenience stores. The Sandy Bay beach, which has excellent snorkeling, is a 3 min walk away, and the dolphins at Anthony's Key are about a 5 min walk away. Octopus Divers is about a 15 min walk away, and offers special rates to hostel guests. To get to the area of West End (bars, restaurants, tourist shops), you can flag a bus ($1) or a shared taxi ($1. 50 per person during the day, rate goes up at night) for the 5 min (4 km) drive.

How to get there

From the airport or ferry, go west (about a 12 min drive from the airport and 20 min from the ferry) to Sandy Bay. When you see the sign for Solgas in Sandy Bay, turn left on the side road, and we're the 5th house on the left.

An airport or ferry dock pick up can be arranged for $15, which can include a grocery store stop. Taxis generally charge $20-$25, but a lower pricing can be negotiated if you leave the parking lot and flag one on the street. For the bus, you'd need to take one as far as Coxen Hole then change buses to continue on to Sandy Bay.

Nearest airport: RTB, about 12 min away by car
