I stayed at Hostelluego over new years and until mid-January, and I fell in love with this hostel. The hostel is very clean, have good showers, air- condition rooms, and low cost rooms. It is not a party hostel, but you are more than welcome to gather as a group in the common areas for drinks. Most of the people... More

TO MAKE IT SHORT: They have bed bugs in every room, and knowing that, they keep on renting them. The Receptionist is a liar, and the owner is violent and aggressively kick us out of "his hostel" and threaten us with putting us in jail. WHOLE STORY: My boyfriend and I got there and payed two nights in advance. We... More

We had to leave and there was no help from the owner or staff to help us out with another place. don't book here, there are many other places in bocas that's much nicer and friendlier... More

We complained about finding bedbugs in our room and the receptionist replied as this was normal assuring us that all rooms but number 5 had them. Then the owner said we brought them when we ask for our money back, and started screaming and saying we were going to go to jail if we didn't get out right that second... More

I was sick in Bocas around new years searching for a room so I booked the private double, charging $75, hoping next day a room would be available. The room was clean and nice, the bathroom was shared but was kept clean, they forgot to give me a towel but didn't really mind. Common area was really good. Next day... More

This hostel took advantage of the fact that it was high season and charged us $70 for a room the size of the double bed that was in it. We weren't given towels, and the owner refused to give us back our $5 key deposit and wasn't even willing to discuss the situation with us. A disappointment.

This hostel gave me bed bugs in early January - beware. Additionally the room was tiny, the place felt like it was falling apart and dirty, and the internet was almost non-existant. Really frustrating experience.

I really liked this hostel , great value for money , dorm beds are only 10 dollars a night and tht comes with air con too. Think privates for 2/3 people were 30 dollars. The kitchen is well stocked so good for travellers who like to cook and free pancakes and breakfast in the morning is a nice bonus. It's... More

Overall the hostel is pretty decent, good kitchen and rooms. We stayed in the hostel for a week, we then discussed with the owner that we would leave for a night, but keep our bags at the hostel, then check in again the next day. The owner confirmed our booking and said this was fine. However, when we turned up... More

I stayed at the hosteluego for 5 nights and quite enjoyed the hostel. The bad parts about it are a few... The hot water in the showers change to cold very often very fast! The lightning in the public areas are not the best. And the wi-fi is super slow. But the worst part about this hostel is Definetlly the... More
