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

Had a great stay at Aqua lounge. Good value for money, great drink prices and fun parties. The trampoline and slack line are awesome. Lots of great spots to chill out. Beds are really comfy and big, good little shelf to put your things on. The staff are so lovely. Jay jay cooks up the best food!

The place was fun to hang out in. As we were there during the Halloween/Independence day celebrations, there was a lot of party going on. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. The best thing about this place was the great food, particularly Pasta chef Dex is a magician in the kitchen. His "Dex's noodles" gave me a mouthgasm... More

I stayed here with a group for 5 nights and will definitely never come back. At least for that a long time. I really liked the place the first night I was here. I was up for a party and it was awesome not having to leave the hostel to do that. There was a lot of people and you... More

We didn't stay here, but we came here to make use of the bar for a friends birthday. What a night! This bar is a must visit. Great drink prices, swings so you can jump in the water, and it's only a short water taxi ride away from the main island.

A good friend of mine and I just stayed here for 6 days in the 12 person dorm. Nice and roomy, nice bathroom, and some massive fans to keep us cool at night. The chef is amazing. We ate here almost every night! And the free pancakes and coffee every morning hit the spot. Alcohol prices are cheap too. I... More

The hostel has a very cool location on the water and a fresh atmosphere. Good English talking staff, who is helpful. Good breakfast. But if you want to have a good night sleep, you should not stay here. It turns into a bar with loud music in the evening and you are actually sleeping in the disco, so if you're... More
