I really liked this hostel. I had a great time with my friend. Nice vibe and good location. Great value for money. The kitchen is well stocked so good for travellers who like to cook and free pancakes for the breakfast is a nice bonus. There are common areas to be quiet and relax. It was very clean when I...

The worst bed bugs I have ever had in my life. And I've traveled a lot, and had minor bed bug experiences before. I was only there one night, and those b------s went to town on me! The staff was nice, but acted like they knew nothing when I'm pretty sure they were aware of the problem. This experience has... More

My girlfriend and I stayed there for four nights and although the hostel looks really nice I must say that ALL private rooms have bugs. After my second night, bites started to appear all over my legs. At the beginning I thought of mosquitos or even an allergic reaction but on the third day we realised that they were bugs... More

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.
