    I loved the vibe here eclectic mix of people and everyone very friendly. Place was well kept I upgraded after 2 nights when I saw the private rooms on top and figured I waNted to spoil myself. Team was very helpful in figuring out the village and what’s worth to do. I would definitely return here happily.

    Fun place

    Great hosts and a fun atmosphere. A great place to spend the night before continuing our adventures down the Belizean coast.

    Wir waren 2 Nächte im Funky Dodo, um von Hopkins aus die Umgebung zu erkunden. Wir hatten einen netten Aufenthalt. Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und geräumig, der Aufenthaltsbereich war schön eingerichtet mit vielen Informationen zu Unternehmungen und vom Hostel aus war Hopkins gut zu Fuß zu erkunden, da es zentral gelegen war und auch Einkaufsmöglichkeiten nicht weit entfernt waren. Mit Abstand das beste Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis auf unserer Belize-Reise.
