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.

The room was well equipped, clean, and well maintained. The staff was extremely friendly - I forgot the woman's name, but she was so hospitable, kind, helpful, and easy to talk to. The cats are also super duper cute, and they're friendly with strangers :)

The place was great. The room was spacious, clean, comfy and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked and organized. The staff was pleasant and the location was fantastic. Yes the hostel has rules. The rules make this place work well and meant that I could get some sleep. It is located just a few feet from the public ferry dock... More
