At first when I arrived (on a Saturday), I thought i'd be in for party hostel vibes (given there was karaoke going on next door & folks drinking downstairs) , which I wasn't looking for but I was pleased to find the dorm rooms were...More
My friend and I arrived without a reservation because our other accommodation didn't work out and they were so helpful. We only stayed here 2 nights, but kept coming back to hang out for our whole month in San Pedro. I was really excited to...More
My buddies and I were doing Belize on a budget, so cheap accommodations were a must. We managed to get a private room in Sandbar for less than $100USD per night, so when you divide that up amongst 3 guys that's pretty cheap! We stayed...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.
