It's difficult to review this place as a did have a good time there, but it was more the people and the trip itself that was great rather than the hostel itself. We stayed in November for 6 nights. This was my first stay at a hostel so I don't know what to compare it to, however my two friends... More

Stood there for 3 nights in a 12er dorm. It's a great hostel, with amazing staff. Every day/night had a special theme like Happy Hour all day or 90s party with its music and prices. Also had much fun with the Beerpong and I'd met a lot of people there from all over the World. The meals from the restaurant... More

Didn't like the place. The security was really intimidating at night. The bartenders got agressive. Because I just asked my own snorkel back. Wich I left behind the bar. The kitchen was friendly and the food was good. In total not a nice place

The worst hostel I have EVER stayed at. It was just a nightmare. Dirty rooms, dirty restrooms and showers. Bedbugs included. Manager (or whatever that was) was absolutely unfriendly and disrespectful. Eventhough we were looking for a place you can party 24/7... I can't recommend it at all!

We stayed at Aqua for four nights in total and had a fantastic experience. Our stay coincided with New Years and we wouldn't have had it any other way. We stayed in a private room (very well priced) for the duration of our stay and really enjoyed the cosy and colourful room. Other bonuses consisted of a great breakfast, great... More

Good fun for a night, the natural pools inside the bar are a nice touch but can be a bit dangerous for young drunk girls who don't know how to measure the behavior.. apart from that, is a place to hang out, dance like crazy and sweat all the alcohol in your veins... locals can be a bit harassing but...

Aqua Lounge is a really cool hostel built right over the water. It is fun, with amazing things to do (trampoline, swings, ocean swimming), excellent staff (everyone is friendly and super chill) and ladies night is AWESOME. great atmosphere, great food! but the downside of being built over the water... is everything is always WET. the floor, your clothes, your...

The Aqua Lounge is the best spot for backpackers looking to have a blast! Their friendly staff ensures that you are comfortable and well taken care of during your stay. Clean and comfortable dorms, excellent food, and great drink specials every day. Don't miss ladies night on Wednesday and Saturday nights!

This hostel had a great atmosphere and was a great place for meeting other travelers. I stayed in a private room with my bf and even though it is a little nosy the rooms were lovely and worth the stay. The food was great there and cheap! However what sets this place out from the rest is the trampoline they... More

Was only meant to stay for 2 nights as I'd already been in Bocas for 4 nights and ended up staying for 5! Although it is a party hostel there's parties 3 nights a week and the rest are pretty tame, most people hit up a bar called Iguana on the main island after a few drinks. And the days... More
