Perfect place to stay in Bocas. Just outside the busy center of town. With the free rental bike it's a five minute ride to the center en even less to the beach. Really feels like having your own home in Bocas. And for a really good price! Don't expect the Hilton of course for this price. But for real travellers... More

Also known as Jenny's cabanas, this place has a real caribbean feel. A 1$ dollar taxi ride or a 10 minutes walk to the action of Boca Town, it's far enough to have a quiet night. Jenny and her staff are very nice and helpful. The rooms are always clean and very spacious. We'll definitely stay again when we go... More

A little off the beaten track, but it didn't cost much and was comfy and had hammocks to chill in. We got lifts from the local into town and used this place as our base. Quiet at night and cool decks to hang out on.

I stayed here for five days. It is incredible. I met great people and loved the facilities and balcony area. The owner and cleaner lady were really friendly and helpful. It is a walk from town but in a nice secluded place. I absolutely loved staying in room 5. It was one of nicest places and I have stayed on... More

A group of 7 of us travelled to Jenny's place in Saigon and stayed in cabanas 4,5 and 6. Was the perfect spot for a group as all the rooms were connected by a large balcony chill area which was where most our time was spent. Nice decor and comfortable surroundings in an otherwise uncomfortable place, thought I would absolutely... More

Not too far from downtown (you can either walk, take a taxi for $1 or borrow a bike from Jenny), the location is beautiful and Jenny is very kind and helpful. The rooms are clean and very comfortable.

Stayed here for 3 nights in May/June of 2015. The location of this place is about a 15 minute walk from town along a very safe and easy to walk road, or a 3-4 minute taxi ride for $1US p.p. It is also very close to 2 very good supermarkets, which is handy since the kitchens are extremely good. We... More

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this place. I'm more of a hotel kind of person (which there aren't that many hotels in Bocas and now that I've been there, I know the few they have look like hostels anyway) so when I hear the word hostel, my mind just automatically assumes it's a tiny room with 8...

We loved our stay here. We accidentally booked a room without a kitchen by mistake but Jenny the owner was quick to shuffle us around so we had a room with a kitchen for 4 out of our 5 nights there which we were really grateful for. So we stayed in rooms 4, 5 and 6. 5 was our favourite.... More
