Wonderfully helpful friendly service. Hostel is a little way away from the beach and all the action, but only a short walk. Lovely setting and fantastic common areas. Downside... Dorms are hot and fans don't reach if you're on the bottom bunks. Wifi connection is not good and only works in certain areas at certain times.

Great staff and security here. It is a 10 min walk to West End Beach and has a very nice porch area. Bring lots of bug spray! We got bitten the F up. Our friend fell asleep on a hammock and his back looks like 4 cats made love on it. The showers and bathroom are what you would expect...

Stayed here for a few nights before going to Utila! We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and everyone was incredibly friendly. The accommodations were very basic - we stayed in the dorm. It was exactly what I expected: lockers, bunk-beds, ceiling fans. We absolutely loved the tree-fort area and spent most of our time up there relaxing in the hammocks. The...

My mom and I went there thinking we would stay for a night until we found a place better suited to our desires, but we ended up staying 5! Sophie is incredibly friendly, she makes you feel right at home and is always smiling and willing to answer any of your questions. The bed we slept on was very comfortable...

My girlfriend and I were in town for the music festival and the taxi driver took us to this place. We asked for a private room and were shown a suite which was huge and awesome and very reasonably priced. We had our own bathroom and fridge and a couch! It was perfect, and a quick walk to all the...

Buena Onda Hostel is a place I always return to with great pleasure. It has it all: charme, security, a good vibe and most of all a host that will perfectly look after your wellbeing: Sophie. If you want to be in a safe place close to the seaside this is it, look no further. Property is fenced and the...

Hostel was very clean-came back every night to beds made and even my clothes folded! Bathrooms cleaned everyday, hot water, nice shower. Sophie, the owner, is awesome! Felt very safe- armed guard at the gate every night. Short walk to town, conveniently located by petrol station which has the only good ATM in the area. Kitchen and common room were...

Keep on walking... I was suppose to stay at this place when i visited Roatan last week, but i kept on walking! Very small dorm, with too many beds. Didn`t get a good first impression at all! Dirty floors and exspensive for this kind of sleeping..

Sophie is awesome. She is friendly, helpful, and makes you feel very welcome. I did not think the hostel was dirty or cluttered. I thought it was...a hostel...which....it what it is. I stayed here for two nights only. Once on my way going to Utila and then on the way back. Both times i was given fresh sheets upon arrival...

I originally came to Buena Onda for two nights and was supposed to get an apartment for three weeks. Instead I ended staying here for almost a month. The first night other travelers made me feel at home and after that I never left. We had family dinners and lots of fun. The hostel itself is like many others with...
