Not in the middle of the main area, but really nice located directly on the sea. Was there one evening. Beer for $1, Cocktails $5. Really good but expensive Chicken wings and french fries. Stuff was friendly. Good but much too loud live music, hammocks on a dock. Restrooms need an update. Would go there again.

I've stayed here several times when I visit Bocas. It's a basic hostel, not fancy and you need your own towel. I prefer the private room but the hostel atmosphere is the best in town. The waterfront location and restaurant are two more reasons to stay here. Make a reservation and see the room before you pay, standard practice everywhere... More

I don't know why people like this place, I didn't have a good experience here. The staff were unhelpful, disinterested and generally made me feel unwelcome every time I asked a question or needed help. The hostel is conveniently located in Bocas town, a 5 min walk from where the boat docks. It's right on the water, and the hammocks... More

Spent 3 months in Casa Verde this place is great! Right on the water, always a great vibe.. Be sure to get your $1tacos on tuesday & $1 beers all week. If you want to go diving or sit your open water this is the place to go! Good vibes good prices get on it!

Not sure why the reviews are all over the place for this hostel. Looks like there were some previous problems that have since been addressed. I was concerned about bed bugs, which seems to be a problem everywhere in Bocas. My room was clean, and I saw no signs of them. Good place with AC in the dorms, and waterfront... More

yes i think there was a problem with the noise but now they stop the bar at 10pm, beachfront property so you can hang out and relax all day without moving and if you want so, well they have a front desk were you can pick a trip and awesome information.

We had beers here and listened to music many evenings while in Bocas area. On the water, nice breeze and view, often music. Because it is well liked hostel many young people are around, swimming off deck or just hanging. Food is good pub food, wing night is great. Staff friendly and helpful. It is a good place to stop...

We felt that this hostel had a nice location but that's about it. The staff on reception and on the bar were rude and couldn't care less. Everytime we went up to order a drink/food it was made quite clear to us that we were interupting their conversation and lets just say service was without a smile. Our room was... More

Nice location and friendly bar staff, but cramped rooms with only one locker, people above having sex all night, a/c blasting on bunk bed and hopeless reception staff. Couldn't help with the simplest questions and couldn't careless.
