Beskrivningen av objektet

The Funky Dodo Backpackers Hostel is located right in center of the original Garifuna village of Hopkins on the Caribbean coast of Belize. We can help organize tours, activities and adventures in the local area.

We offer comfortable budget accommodation in the spacious 16 bed dormitory (2 rooms with 8 beds in each room) in full size single bunk beds and we have 10 private rooms that accommodate from 1 to 4 people with either shared or private bathrooms. All of our showers have solar-powered hot water.

We have free high speed Wi-Fi everywhere on the property and cool shaded sandy yard where you can relax and chill out. We have hammocks and plenty of seating, a well equipped kitchen free of use and plenty of new clean bathrooms around the place.

We can help you book trips and will be able to get out there and see the sights for the best prices in town.

We are here to help and we will make sure you know where you are going and you know how to get there and that you are fully aware of all the things to see in and around the village.

The Hostel always has a good atmosphere, a wide range of music and fun people to meet and folk have good things to say about the place.

If you are backpacking or on holiday in Belize or traveling through Latin America take some time to checkout Hopkins for water sports, wild life and nature reserves and true Garifuna culture. On a motorcycle or bicycle tour? The Funky Dodo has secure, roofed parking inside our compound, and an overnight security guard.

Within a 30 second walk from the hostel there are bars and restaurants, cafes, the beach, and a supermarket. A 5 minute walk will take you to several more bars, restaurants and shops.

We will help and assist you with any information you need and make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable.

The village is known as the safest place in all of Belize. You can walk the streets anywhere in the village alone at any time of day or night without a single worry. The local crowd is really friendly and kind and people and will smile and wave as you go by.

Located 60 meters from the Caribbean Sea, close to all amenities and a perfect location to catch a boat out to the reef for some snorkeling and diving, floating about in the river and lagoons for some fishing.

A great location from where one can visit all the inland sites, the Cockscomb basin Jaguar sanctuary that covers 130,000 acres of tropical jungle, crystal clear rivers, streams and waterfalls where you can swim and relax on the rocky formations.

The Mayflower reserve is also very close by where you can study abundant wild life and stunning vegetation and see the highest waterfall in the country known as Antelope falls.

Just beyond Mayflower reserve there is the longest Zip line in Belize that has 8 white knuckle lines one of which is half a mile long and you can hit 40 mph…

There is a vast network of lagoons where there are crocodiles, iguanas and a wide variety of birds and wildlife in general. There is a lookout tower where one can view the sea on one side and the mountains on the other. 1 and 2 person kayaks or canoes are available to hire close by to take in to the lagoon on the north side where there is a canal that leads into the lagoon.

You can take a boat out along the river for a night time river trip with a guide and experience the phosphorescence plankton in the wake of the boat and the glowing eyes of the crocodiles in the dark. The trip lasts about 3 hours and your guide will show you the amazing wild life along the banks of Sittee river and in the lagoons.

Several of Belize’s archeological sites can be comfortably seen on a day trip from here.

Tours available include marine excursions in the blue Caribbean waters, jungle treks & swimming in waterfalls. Night time crocodile spotting adventure on the river & Mayan ruin exploration in the whole country of Belize.

The service was excellent from the owners, the location is great as well. At first I was in a 4-bed dorm and I did not like it at all. No key to the dorm, no locks of any sort in the room for valuables (I was offered to leave them in the office during work hours, but I can’t be running there everyday) and small. The fans did not reach the top beds either so it was like a sauna. I easily upgraded to a private room and that was better. As a whole the place is very basic, but so is this village.

This was my second stay at the Funky Dodo and we absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is very relaxing, facilities are great, and the private rooms are really nice. The owners and staff are super helpful. They went out of their way to get us a bus to Belize City, otherwise we probably would not have made it! We will stay here whenever we visit Hopkins.
