The Old House Hostel is a small, recently opened hostel in San Ignacio. The atmosphere is relaxed and social. It is not a partyhostel, but people do have drinks together on the terrace, and go out occasionaly. The owner of the hostel, Davina, is a young girl, who has been travelling herself. She is there most of the time and more than willing to help you out with any questions. She might also just go and have a drink with you. The hostel is nicely decorated and feels like a home.
San Ignacio is a very small town. The hostel is located right outside the centre, up a little hill across the police station. This provides a nice view from the balcony. It is a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. If asking for directions it might be easiest to ask for the police station.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The hostel has two 8 bed dorms, one private room and two bathrooms. The dorm rooms are basic. There are lockers that fit your whole backpack under the beds, making the dorms more spacious. There is no AC, and only one fan.
The two bathrooms both have a sink, toilet and shower with hot and cold water. The bathrooms are cleaned regularly.
The hostel has a kitchen, a livingroom with a table and couches, and a little terrace outside. The kitchen is equiped with pots, pans etc and also cleaned regularly. There are also some spices for common use. The common areas are very cosy, and are more like a house than a hostel.
The hostel provides wifi, both in the dorms and the common areas. The wifi is slow, but this seems to be a general problem in Belize. There is no breakfast provided. There is a book exchange in the living room. During the daytime, there is usually always someone around to help you if needed. The staff is knowledgable about the area and very friendly.
The Old House Hostel is a great place to stay in San Ignacio. It litteraly is a cosy old house where you can easily hang out all day. The atmosphere is social and relaxed.
