On booking.com we were promised to be eligible for a refund of half of the fees upon cancelling one day in advance. However, the hotel claims that there is a cancellation at full cost if you cancel one month or less in advance and puts the responsibility on booking. There does also not seem to be an effort to change this.

Everything about this place is perfect. The location, the friendly staff, the amazing people you'll meet. A space to eat and drink and have some party time but also a little Oasis for some relaxation. This place is RIGHT on the water. Don't even need to put my shoes on to get in the sand or next to bright blue water. Such a good deal for good quality. I would attend again in a heart beat.

Drift Inn was the perfect central location for our San Pedro excursions! The room was a perfect size for the two of us, comfortable bedding, and the AC cranked! Perfect for the rising temps on the island. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. You are right next to so many amazing restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. We only needed a golf cart to get to the southern part of the island, otherwise it was incredibly easy to walk anywhere. Would definitely stay again!

The Drift Inn was great! Centrally located with lots of walkability. Rooms were a good size and we liked the community kitchen. It was nice to be able to prepare food and eat it in the outdoor area. The best part of the Drift Inn in my honest opinion though was the staff. We'd go back just to see them!

This was our second time staying here and we LOVED it all over again. Just steps to the beautiful ocean, I laid out on the deck almost every day, so peaceful and relaxing. We saw so many cool fish and spotted sting rays too! The rooms are clean, water is warm, drinking water always available, they even have ice cube trays in the freezer. Don't forget your insulated cup! The shared kitchen has all the essentials needed to prepare yourself a snack or a meal. Everything you need is so close, the grocery store where you'll find locals BBQ'ing out front, fresh fruit and veggie stands, you can walk to Yoli's for some authentic Belizean breakfast and grab some iced coffee next door at six teen ounces. You are in the middle of a busy little town on an island so if you are a light sleeper this might not be ideal for you. The Drift Inn is located so conveniently to everything you need and or you can hop in a taxi to eat somewhere fancy-ish too! Ask Stephanie to book a golf cart for a day and head north or south and you'll find some great stops along the way. The staff, the service, the recommendations are always top notch for whatever you are in the mood to do! We will continue to come back and stay here at The Drift Inn.

Bed in wall very safe, comfortable, shelf, light and plug with curtain at feet. Bring ear plugs, some travelers are disrespectful but most are considerate of sleeping guests. Lots of clean separate showers and toilets, sinks, big mirror. Fairly close to dorms. Small but great kitchen with 2 fridges, lots of utensils, pots, plates, spices, etc. Perfectly located on the waterfront, docks, very close to grocery store's (3min walk), restaurants and activities. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. I would go back!

It was my first time in San Pedro. This was definitely a great place to stay! It’s in the center of all the attractions. It's also walking distance to restaurants and the beach. The staff were amazing, super friendly and helpful. I love the Drift Inn and will definitely be back!

Very laid-back,unpretentious, friendly hostel vibe all around between staff and guests and staff and staff and guests and guests and cats too, in a surprisingly quiet yet extremely convenient location...perfect for us :) Rooms: had a very clean and simple spacious room with large shower, plenty of storage and a queen and single bed on the quiet courtyard Nearby activities: 200 feet from a beach full of restaurants, retail and tour companies, and an equal distance from the main streets Safety: very safe and friendly location and town Walkability: anything you may want is an easy walk nearby Food & drinks: community use courtyard kitchen, reasonably priced casual beachside restaurant next door, with more restaurants and grocers around the corner

This is the best hostel I've stayed in. Great, comfy dorm beds with the usual sockets, light etc. Really great people running it - they were REALLY helpful. I really liked that each dorm had its own 1-2 toilets (rather than go out into the corridor in the middle of the night!). It shares a fantastic view with its 'sister' next door hostel Sandbar overlooking the beach with a good restaurant with reasonable prices.
