We stayed here for one night on our way to Hopkins. We had a private room which faced the sea. Dangriga is OK but not for swimming. It is a real Garifuna town so worth a stop. We were travelling by public bus so this D's Place was handy being 10 mins walk from the bus station. Di is very...

Kindness and friendly approach to visitors is the main advantage of this place. The owner is always smiling and willing to help. The hostel is located almost at the shore, with a small park next to it, so the view is great. Climb up to the roof to get the best of it! We were a little sceptical, because dorm...

Really enjoyed our stay. Rented beautiful private room. Very clean. Donna, the owner, is very gracious. Felt very safe and secure (right across the street from the police station). Good value for the money and close to downtown.

Dana , the owner, was very nice and helpful. There were a lot of dogs barking in the morning though and the beds are air madrasses (which suprisingly were comfortable). We only stayed one night and just arrived without booking. Dangriga in itself is not so interesting but you can book different tours in the area (we went to mayflower...

Dana is lovely and wants to please. Laundry service a plus. Dorm was 8 bunks each with own fan. Bathroom ok, shower too hot hot for weather outside. We had breakfast included in the price which was handy. Be aware: not all information is up to date re buses and onward travel.

We stayed at D's Hostel in February 2016. We were able to stay in the private room (as opposed to the dorm) and found it very comfortable. The owner Dana is a wonderful host who made us a nice breakfast and took time to chat with us before we had to catch the bus north. BTW, the building has been...

My experience with D's hotel was awesome... First of all, Ms.Dana is a wonderful person who welcomes you with big smile:) she is always nice and kind, and makes you feel at home. On top of that, she makes breakfast for you every day. I stayed at dorm rooms but they also have private rooms if you would like. Ms....

Ms. Donna was very friendly, the room was clean, it had a large bath and a kitchenette complete with refrigerator and microwave. The view of the beautiful caribbean sea was great for relaxing on the beautiful porch with overlooked the sea. I would definitely recommend this location, we paid $55 USD and our room had a queen sized and a...

We overnighted in Dangriga on the way to Tobacco Caye. D's is excellent value for backpacking here. D is a knowledgeable and caring owner = she helped arrange our boat the next morning, advised a good local restaurant (Alexis's), chatted kindly and dealt with any of our queries. We stayed in the spacious 8bed mixed dorm on comfy and bigger...
