Candy was a sweetheart, and her whole family was wonderful. The owners living on the premises were very helpful as well. And Sid, their hilarious dog, literally guided us to the waterfall in the lush, gorgeous jungle. Thinking back on my time at this place, which I nearly missed due to the bus passing it, makes my heart warm. If... More

My husband stumbled upon this place as somewhere to stay when we were traveling between Placencia and Saint Ignacio. It was an amazing stop and I wish we had more time to stay there! The hostel bunk room and upstairs deck were huge and clean. We were there in the off season and were the only hostel guests so we... More

I only stayed one night--in the second story of a 2 story house (story three about to be constructed). The manager was super and the food they cooked was outstanding. If you're willing to go without luxury, I would recommend The Hummingbird (which has hummingbirds in the yard, of course!).

Firstly I will say you do need to be prepared for quite basic living. This is in no way a luxury, uber clean hostel but then again you're in an eco-lodge/hostel the middle of the Belizean jungle. There is still a lot of work to be done here and they will tell you that but once you lower your expectations... More

We stayed only one night because there was a large group coming in the next night. It is a wonderful place with amazing river access and a great hiking trail throught the jungle to a fantastic series of waterfalls. Dinner and breakfast can be had for a reasonable fee and is cooked by James, the incredibly nice local man that... More

- : They advertise a free wifi access, hammocks and rentable tents....but none of these were available. Also, smelly and old bathrooms (just a hole). + : comfortable bed, drinkable water and you can do a 30 min hike from the hostel, in the wood,to go to an amazing waterfall (Really worth it). We stayed one night and had a... More

Let's start saying that there are two kind of room. One is new, comfortable and really amazing while the other is probably the worst room I have ever seen in my life.

We booked the 2 bedroom "guest house" through booking.com but when we arrived the accommodations were dirty, bed linen was all stained and had not been changed, rotten food in the fridge etc. We left immediately.

I love the Hummingbird Haven and make sure that I visit it every time that I come to Belize. It is rustic, peaceful, beautiful and has great hosts.

First off the location is wrong on the trip advisor map ... The Lodge is actually 30 miles south of Belmopan. Best way to get there is on a bus from Belmopan to Dangriga. I believe the village is Saint Margaret but saying mile 29 or telling the bus driver Hummingbird Lodge should work. The place is beautiful and the... More
