This hostel is the perfect location on bocas town. It has a great fully equipped kitchen and awesome fridge system (each room as there own dedicated space). The owners are lovey and very helpful. The rooms are spacious and very clean! We loved our stay here and would stay again!

Great hostal with confortable rooms and friendly atmosphere. Very clean and organized. Nice kitchen and location is great to explore Bocas. Not very "hostel spirit" (if you want to use the bathroom or wifi after check out, you must pay 3USD).

This place is great. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The dorms are $13 or $14 and double privates are $33. We stayed in a private room with a private balcony. A cleaning lady came through every day and gave us fresh sheets and towels, swept, changed trash, and tidied up. I've never had that service at any hostel. The... More

We were so fortunate to stumble upon Hostal Hansi, after a really crap stay on Carenero at Gran Kahuna. We were at Cafe del Mar with our backpacks hoping for a new hostel, and the couple that owns the cafe mentioned Hansi. So we strolled over and there was an open room!! So fortunate, because after we got in we... More

My wife and I stayed here after the hotel we booked turned out to be pretty awful and we couldn't be happier with Hostal Hansi. We got a private room with a bathroom and balcony (balcony is well worth the extra $2) and it was clean and well-kept. In fact, they cleaned the bathroom every day they were there--better than...

We were staying at a hotel in Bocas that we didn't like very much and came to Hostal Hansi to ask whether they have any room for the next day. The friendly lady at the front desk said they don't accept bookings but there will probably be a room available the next day. We came back quite early (around 8am)... More

We stayed here for over a week. Clean rooms (which are cleaned every day and new sheets are given every 3 or so days). The cleaner is amazing, she keeps the place spotless all the time. Very friendly owners and a great functional kitchen. Felt like home. Also make use of the snorkel gear which is free to borrow. Loved... More

Lovely rooms with comfortable beds and good quality linen and towels. Nice touches such as shelves, hooks and hangers for storage (a rarity in Central America) and a table and chairs in both rooms we stayed in ( we went to another island in between) The rooms, kitchens and communal areas were all ver clean.
