We stayed here for two nights whilst in Roatan and it was enjoyable. The rooms are spacious and affordable and the owner is very friendly and accommodating. It is situated only a short walk into the main area.

The owner is very nice and sweet, we had a pizza night which everyone designed their own pizza, I think it was a great idea to get people together. I love the balcony especially at night just sitting there enjoy the stars also away from all the bars and parties.

It wasn't very clean at the public area but it's a hostel I mean, I do suggest to change or at least wash the sofa sheet, the smell wasn't too good.

It was a nice stay indeed.

Great location, right near a small beach, near the town/bars, and about an hour walk away from West Bay - but it's a really nice walk on the beach. Accommodations are OK - no outlets near the beds, not very clean (though not super dirty either). Not a particularly social atmosphere, but those that I did meet were nice. Power went out fairly frequently (aka...no functioning fans during the hot nights!)

I stayed at Buena Onda for just one night as it was sold out for the rest of my stay.

Before my stay communication with the hostel was very easy - I spoke with Sophie via Whatsapp to arrange my stay. She was really helpful after i had a mix up with the dates.

The hostel is set back from the main strip and down a dark dirt track, so bring a flashlight and expect to walk back from the road to find it.

The hostel itself is quite run down, but has all the backpacker essentials. The best thing about it was the number of friendly guests and staff who were always available for a chat and to provide guidance on what to do in the island. The dorm itself, although with ~10 people sleeping, was quiet and the travellers respectful of each other.

Hugely recommend their Saturday night BBQ with BYO alcohol - the best value meal on the island and one of the best ways to meet everyone at the hostel.

Thanks again!

Loved my stay at Buena Onda so, so much! Came for 5 days, stayed 2 weeks. Great people, lots of communal meals, happy yoga some mornings, nice location just a few minutes walk to beach. Thank you Buena Onda!! See you again sometime :)
