This may be one of my favorite hostels to ever stay at! It's right on the beach, plenty of hammocks/swings to go around, and clean beds and bathrooms! It's a dream come true. I heard some of the tenants criticize how strict Susanne's rules were, but those rules are definitely what are keeping this hostel impeccable! If you're a traveler...

Yuma's House is a must visit for anyone coming to Caye Caulker to relax, soak up the island life, and live in backpacker luxury in a small, sweet dorm room. Susanne is an incredible owner and manager who has clearly put in a lot of time and effort to make this guest house top notch - you can see from...

I stayed at Yuma's House for 3 days. If you're not snorkelling/diving/eating during the day, there's very little to do on Caye Caulker aside from relax in a hammock and read a good book in the sun - Yuma's was the perfect place to do this! All of the staff are friendly, helpful and full of information. The showers are...

I was treated like a piece of dirt by the manager for no apparent reason when making an inquiry to view a room and was shouted at by Susanne to go away and mocking us. It is disgusting that this woman thinks she can get away with treating prospective guests in this way and completely put us off giving any...

Dear Kate631, It seems that you get " shouted at " from Indonesia to Belize. I feel thankful that you were not a guest in my house. Happy travels, Susanne

We stayed at Yuma's House for 10 days. It is probably the best gesthouse in Caye Caulker. Best spot, 2min from ferrys and center, with a paradisiac view on the sea from the patio. Also the owner is very helpful and provides lots of info of the activities that can be done in the caye. Really good value for money....

My partner and I stayed for 7 nights and loved it! Yuma's is one of the cleanest and safest hostels I think I have ever stayed in. There are plenty of places on the island if you want to party and thankfully Yuma's is not one. It has a relaxed and friendly vibe. The public areas and bathrooms are cleaned...

One of our favourite hostels across our central/South America travels. Love the layout with the hammocks and tables where you can hang out and have a drink or what have you. The kitchens are clean and the best we've cooked in across the continents. In response to some grumpy reviews on here, yes the room was warm but I don't...

I honestly don't know why Suzanne gets so much shade on this site. She is a lovely caring woman who cares about her business. She is a fantastic business owner and always went out of her way to help, answer questions, etc. The property is the best hostel on the island with a convenient location and great views. There are...

This hostel perfectly fits the ethos of Caye Caulker "Go Slow". When you're not on excursions diving or snorkling, all you want to do is chill out on a hammock and watch the world float by. This hostel offers that in abundance. When I first got there, there seemed to be endless rules, but when you're there, they all makes...

I stayed at Yuma's house for 3 glorious days. The owner Suzanne is always there and as wonderful as she can be. The house is immaculate inside and out. It is a hostel as described and I chose an individual room. It was perfect. Warm and inviting with a fan to move that Caribbean air! The kitchens are well stocked...
