This place is like the house that jack built, after a week i still found new rooms and balconies. The rooms aren't amazing, in fact the dorms are probably better than the private rooms, but you come for the position and the balcony. The views of the bay and across to the other islands are fantastic. There are beautiful comfy... More

The rooms are fine; not too clean but very cheap. Big terraces and balconys with tables, hammocks and awesome views. The owner and staff are very nice, but as written below not always around to answer questions and help. Isla Bastimentos is fantastic and Hostal Bastimentos is a very good option.

Arriving on laid-back Isla Bastimentos from busy Isla Colon, we already felt we made the right choice. And the Hostal Bastimentos was also a great pick! The view of the bay is beautiful. The rooms are also good value for money. We occupied 2 double rooms in the upper part of the hostel. One had a direct view of the... More

Owned by the congenial, friendly and earnest Enrique (born and raised on Bastimentos), this is a funky, very laid back hostel in the heart of Old Bank. Sitting on a property with coconut and other local trees, it boasts an amazing view and a menagerie of local birds. The dorms are good at incredible prices and it attracts a wide... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved every second of it. This hostel is beautifully designed and well located slightly up the hill providing you with a lovely view of the area. The rooms are well kept, and comfortable. Prices are $10 for dorms and $20 for a private room with a bathroom (for two people). The owner is... More

Mellow yellow house on the hill, great views, nice mix of travelers. I'm writing this from the hammock listening to birds and watching the sea. That's the pace of this place. Get motivated walk to the beach or take a boat to the surf breaks. Tranquilo

Our stay here was great. The rooms are beautiful and really worth the money. Beautiful view from the terrace!! Its a great place to relax and get away from everything. The island might not be too good in general, but the hostel definitely is. The manager is a great person as well. I totally recomend this place for a couple... More

Hostel Bastimentos was a cool experience. Super chill little island. The beaches are so secluded and empty. Some of the nicest beaches I've ever seen. The Hostel was great, all the guests were casual and everyone socialized. The owner, Enrique was extremely friendly and helpful. Give him beers and he'll be an even happier man. Haha. Keep it up Enrique.... More

Nice hostel in the interesting town of bastimentos. Everything was in good condition including the beds and the kitchen. The staff were friendly and it was only a 10 minute walk to wizard beach (which is unspoiled by mass tourism like the other beaches in the bocas region.) I did not stay for more than one night though as it... More
