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

This hostel is great. It has a sweet location, good air con, nice rooms, clean bathrooms and a cool, social but chilled vibe. The owner Alex is a great guy. It also seemed to be the best value for money in Bocas. The only thing stopping it getting 5 stars are the 2 younger girls who work there - they... More

As a traveler, the 3 things most important to me are the hostel, the people, and the price, hosteluego covers all three. The hostel has quality shared facilities (kitchen and multiple lounge areas), low number of beds in a dorm (I stayed in a dorm with 4 beds), and clean and separate bathroom and shower (with hot water). Everyone that... More

The whole place is renovated and absolutely clean. we stayed in a double room which was very basic and kind of small but had AC and was... More

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
