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.

I stayed in D's Hostel for one night in July. Dana, the owner was extremely kind, welcoming, and helpful. Our room was spacious, and clean with air conditioning and a private bathroom. Wifi and breakfast were also included. We had a great stay!

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.

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...

Dangriga wasn't really on our itinerary, but ended up getting stuck here when on the way to Placencia, so we needed a place to stay.

This place was exactly what we needed after a series of long bus rides from Guatemala. We showed up unannounced and Dana, the owner, greeted us with a smile. The dorm room was clean, and although the mattresses are air mattresses... it was one of the best night sleeps I've had in Belize. The breakfast in the morning was yummy...
