Welcome to PAUSE Hostel
We are a chain of hostels, currently we have one in Chetumal, Mexico and one in Caye Caulker, Belize. We are dedicated to providing quality and affordable accommodation for backpackers and tourists in a familiar, ecological and smoke free environment.
Here at Pause Chetumal and Caye Caulker we are animals lovers, if your traveling with friends who walk on four legs they are equally welcome to check-in to one of our hostels. You need not leave your pet at home.
“PAUSE is not just any hostel. It´s a hostel with a CAUSE”. In addition to offering budget-friendly accommodation we run P.A.W (Protecting Animal Welfare) Cat Sanctuary in Belize. We are the only not-for-profit Cat Sanctuary in all of Belize & Chetumal, Mexico, 100% of the profits from our hostels goes towards our mission of advocating in the interest and welfare of animals through education, reducing the homeless stray animal population by conducting TNR (Trap, Neuter & Return) and offering free sterilization.
PAUSE is not just a place; it´s an experience. It’s a place about empathy, compassion, giving back, and leaving this planet a little better than we found it.
This place has your own private beach, free kayaks, sea horses and sting rays swimming past the hostel’s dock, fully equipped kitchen, amazingly helpful and nice staff, fresh water to fill your bottles up and on top of everything cares for a lot of stray or injured animals on the island. If you find no joy here then your soul is a wasteland of “meh”s and sighs.
Staff deserves 110%! Really nice hostel with free kayaks and it’s own piece of the beach where you can jump in whenever you want. very good price for otherwise expensive Caye Caulker
This hostel is a hidden gem in Caye Caulker! Situated on the west coast of the island, with a small private beach, the backpackers enjoy an access to the water. There are kayaks to be used for free, and a very nice two stories deck to enjoy every sunset during your stay. Plus the owner is a great person, and the dogs and cats are just awesome!
