I had a great time during my stay at the Sandbar Hostel. They have the perfect, central location- walking distance to everything you need (restaurants, bars, markets). They have their own dock with lounge chairs, which were never too crowded. The common area has plenty...More
We visited for happy hour and got a great deal on local rum drinks and pizzas, would highly recommend going during that time (4-6pm I believe). But be warned you will stay beyond that. The location is great, food was delicious and reasonable and service...More
I’ve tried sandbar several times as I do enjoy the pizza. Unfortunately every time my order has either been lost, delayed, or burnt and remade. I do love the location and as I’ve said, the pizza is very good. Service not so much.
We spent 4 nights here, it was great. We had a private room with a queen/bunk bed. It was clean, had access to a common balcony with a hammock. The bathroom was clean, and the shower did the job.
The staff are very friendly and...More
The food was excellent and the location was nice. I cannot speak of the Hostel part myself, but I heard from others around the island that it was a great place to stay. Good place to enjoy a beer and watch football with a full...More

Belize City is undoubtedly a dangerous place. That being said, it's not so dangerous that you can't use it as a transit point to go on to other places in the country; I just wouldn't stay there. Not that it is the most interesting place anyway. It's a standard Central American city. Not too pretty and more than slightly troubled by crime. If you're white, you will stand out a great deal and if you're not, you could still find yourself standing out rather and potentially be seen as an easy target. On the mainland, outside of the city, it's similar to the countryside throughout the region; it's safe enough. Towns and villages are blighted by poverty and unemployment, so they're not secure in the way that a village in Newfoundland or Norway might be, but not so dangerous that you should be put off. As an experienced backpacker, I'm sure you'd be quite fine.
If you're going to the islands, where most visitors to Belize travel, you're in luck. They're very safe places, where you would be really unlikely and terribly unlucky to have any great difficulties, much less be the victim of a violent crime. Your only trouble will be putting up with all the other visitors from the Canada and the U.S.
