We didn't stay here, but stumbled across it and kept coming back to hang out! The staff were all super friendly. We went out on a scuba boat with them one day, and also caught a water shuttle here to go over to Red Frog Island for the day.

Love this hostel so much I recommend it over and over. It has a great reputation for good reason. Professional, efficient and very friendly. They serve excellent food with cheap prices and have great live music in the evenings. My personal favorite being the 50cent wing nights Wednesday and Saturday!

We stayed here for four nights in a private room with shared bathroom (35 dollars). Simple and clean rooms. Great location and the ocean view was wonderful. We really liked it here. The dive shop is in the same place and they also had a restaurant with some veggie options:) The food could take some time but not that it... More

They run the dive centre of here so if you want to get your ticket this is a good place to go! They $1... More

Went for lunch and only 2 other tables had people in the restaurant. Took 40 minutes to get black bean soup (fine) and a burger that was overcooked and dried up. Server could not figure out who the food was for although bar tender who took the order was right there.

I stayed here for five nights with friends, and from the start there were problems. The staff couldn't find our reservation, and one of the two bathrooms on site was not operating. It's hard not to be charmed by the waterfront location, though as the week wore on, the management was increasingly difficult and unorganized. We had to change rooms... More

This hostel is, literally, on the water. You can jump off the back deck right into the crystal clear water and swim up to starfish. LITERALLY. Not only that, the whole hostel is built ON the water, so as you wake up, you heat the waves crashing under your floor. Pretty cool eh?! The air conditioning worked well, so that... More

A great week, friendly staff. The best part is the hostel is right on the water, you can jump right into the sea. They have black rubber rings so you can float around. The only difficulty is getting out again.... Rooms are average - you get what you pay for don't expect 5*. Not particularly clean though and bathrooms also... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after arriving in Bocas. It is direclty on the waterfront and it has 2 hammocks where you can hang out. Also there is a sundeck with chairs, where you can chill. The rooms are very basic and have a strange smell, but you get your own A/C and we had a room right next... More

I wanted to support this blacked-owned and operated business but this place is a total dump! Having no water is common place and twice there was no eletric power. They tried to blame it on the festival but every hostel/hotel should be prepared but they just don't care. One night I saw two rats running around the place and my... More
