  • 10.0.Exceptional

    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.
