This place would actually be very nice and is located in a quiet area of Bocas. The staff, however, are not competent at all and there were many bed bugs in my bed. I would NOT recommend staying here!!!

I stayed here in August in a private room and the hostel was amazing. Super clean and very relaxing. We never had any trouble sleeping and Alex was a great host, super accommodating! Would definitely recommend it

Cool hostel with a good atmosphere and air conditioning, which seems to be rare in Central America. Hot water comes and goes but it's not so bad. Worlds better than Mondo Taitu Up the road. Friendly manager too. I'd stay here again if I'm ever back in Bocas.

Hosteluego was a great spot to stay. On a quite road but still only minutes from the bars. I stayed in a nice 6 person dorm for 4 nights. The owner Alex was great, the rooms cozy, the showers hot, and the kitchen is one of the best ive saw in the past 5 months of backpacking through central america.... More

Stayed three nights in this lovely cosy hostel. Has a very nice kitchen to use with great appliances and cookware. Cleanest hostel we've seen on our Central America trip thus far! Plenty of comfortable social areas to hangout in, but also many cool bars are only steps away. Alex was very helpful :)

Stayed here three nights, and the woman I traveled with and I agreed that although it was fine, we wouldn't recommend it to other travelers we met. It was often hard to find someone when we had a question (maybe due to it being the low season?). Our room was plenty big for two people, was on the first floor... More

Only stayed for one night. Very small private rooms, shared bathroom/shower with no toliet paper, not very clean. Cheap though, and good working A.C. But I was eager to get up and leave in the morning, I wouldn't stay there again.

This is a small, quaint hostel off of the beaten track, about 8 to 10 minutes’ walk from the main street. This is the second time I’ve stayed here. Just as before, I found it to be adequate accommodations. The rooms are clean, the Wi-Fi is strong, and the staff are generally quite helpful (although they are not always available... More

I’ve travelled a lot in my life but never before I’ve seen owners/managers of a hostel being such noisy, drunk and ignorant as staff in Hosteluego. They have a sign in their reception area saying, that all party must by gone by midnight, however, this apparently does not apply to the owners as they break their own rules. It’s 4... More

I stayed there four nights. It's a really charming place to look at, and I definitely enjoyed that. The room I was in was roomy with plenty of light. They moved me into a dark and gloomy room for the second night as part of the water damaged ceiling in the room I was in needed repairs. The third and... More
