We stayed for 7 nights (stay 6, get one for free). There are free bikes for your stay! Saigoncito is a bit away from the towncenter, which is okay, as you have the bikes to take you there in 5 minutes - walking is approx. 20 min. When you arrive in Bocas Town by boat take a taxi for $1 per person, unless you don't have a heavy luggage and prefer walking.
The hostel is run by Jenny, who moved to Panama from the Netherlands. She was very helpful and nice all the time. We have been staying in a room with fully equipped kitchen (Saigoncito No. 5), the rooms are all different, none has AC, but there a fans guaranteeing cool nights, while it can get pretty hot during the day. In our room unfortunately the basin was leaking a bit, causing the carpet being wet and smelly all the time. The deck outside the rooms are the perfect place to chill out (as long as mosquitos don't fly by) - there are some couches and hammocks for relaxing. There are hummingbirds flying by all the time. You get new towels and soap everyday, if you like.
If you look for a place outside of the party-town of Bocas, this is your place to stay!
A small supermareket is in 3 min. walking distance. Laundry is 4$ for washing and drying.
