Yuma's Hostel is amazing. Where do I even begin? Yuma's is more like a guesthouse than a hostel with its amenities and welcoming vibe. Yes, it is very important to abide to the rules, but it's not that hard. There is a 0 tolerance for drugs or rowdiness..basically be respectful and you will enjoy your stay to the fullest. We...

the hostel itslef is very beautiful and clean. i had a very nice stay there. the only two things is that there is no hot water (but its so hot outside that its not a real problem), and that nobody, but really nobody that is not staying there can enter the hostel even in the terrace, its a bit exaggerated....

Although I've never stayed in a hostel before I have to say how thoroughly impressed I was with Yuma's Place. The prices are very reasonable. Exceptionally clean and such an excellent location. Great atmosphere and very comfortable. Susanne and her staff run an excellent establishment. The rules that are in place are there for a reason and are really just...

4 days of scuba diving in the Belize Barrier Reef does something to a Caucasian fresh out of winter in Michigan. Laying delirious in a hammock at Yuma's, Suzanna the hostel manager came to check on me. I had heat stroke. Suzanna proceeded to layer me in cool rags and buy me bottled water and check in until I was...

we loved our time here. it's in a fantastic location, right in the heart of the action but it's still nice and quiet come nighttime. there's a guard that keeps watch all night and he makes sure that no one is making too much noise. We were concerned it might be really busy and noisy, but it was really peaceful....

My boyfriend stayed here six years ago so we decided to come back. The location is fantastic, close to the ferry right on the beach. It is probably to cleanest hostel i have ever been in. There are rules (like mentioned before in ratings) which might offend people but in all honestly, rules are in every hostel. It is what...

I think lodging options on Caye Caulker are limited, because this place is the top-rated hostel and I'm not sure it totally met expectations. It was clean and beds were comfy (although the rooms were teensy), but the plumbing didn't work very well during the three nights I was there. There is no hot water in the showers, which I...

As mentioned by other reviewers, Yuma's has rules posted everywhere (website, bathroom, common areas, etc...) however, they are not over overbearing and relatively easy to follow with common sense. The hostel itself was clean and super relaxing. No a/c but fans are provided and the rooms are cool at night. Yuma's sits between 2 ferry docks ( use Ocean Ferry...

Yuma's is a nice, clean quiet hostel located at the beach of Caye Caulker, in between the two ferry services and on the main road. They have a nice garden with good places to sit and hammocks. At first it might not seem the most welcoming place the way the rules are presented, but if you are looking for a...

Feels more like an authoritarian camp than a relaxing hostel in paradise. Great location and nice rooms though. The rules are plastered everywhere and super strictly enforced without even a thought of common sense. This gives the hostel a vibe of tension rather than relaxation (even though we were following the rules). The owners are the opposite of welcoming and...
