Nice location and friendly bar staff, but cramped rooms with only one locker, people above having sex all night, a/c blasting on bunk bed and hopeless reception staff. Couldn't help with the simplest questions and couldn't careless.

Great location right on the waterfront, with a bar and chillout area with hammocks etc. We arrived in the morning in time to watch a pod of dolphins swim by. There was live music most nights from 8-10, and dollar beers all the time. We met loads of really sound people to hang out with. Even those who moved on to other hostels came back to hang out here. We were in a dorm of 6 behind the reception which was fine. Security boxes available, fridge in each room, and decent aircon. Kitchen was a bit under-equipped but we managed okay.

I stayed here as a group of 4 and we had a private room with air con (amazing!). The place has a great atmosphere and it serves really good quality food at reasonable prices and great priced beer! It was the perfect place to hang out next to the water and hammocks with music and happy people. I would definitely recommend staying here. It's also a great place just to hang out even if you have already booked a hostel elsewhere.

The most lively hipster hostel on the sea in Isla Colon, I've spent 8 nights there in a private room and I loved it, good breakfast then every morning there's a boat sailing around 10am/11am from their peer that will take you out to eat and tour islands for about US$20/US$25 per person (prices november 2013), just ask the reception beforehand. Nice vibe in the evening, graffiti all over. You can stay out on the hammock also when it rains, which will very likely be every afternoon before and after soaking up in the sun. Friendly staff. Walking distance from the airport. Near the main street where you will find most of the restaurants and tour operators if the one provided by the hostel doesn't take you where you want. For paying just a fraction of the price of a Hotel I got a big room and the perfect place to stay. They are also on facebook https://www.facebook.com/CasaVerdeBocas

Room Tip: I can't tell about the dorm but private rooms are clean, given the location on the sea and the h...

Doesn't sound like a grabber but I think it's fair. I was recommended this by a friend and didn't check the reviews until the morning before so I was a bit nervous to stay but it was absolutely fine!!! A lot of these reviews are a bit ridiculous - you are staying in a hostel in Central America so keep in mind it's probably not the cleanest place you've laid your eyes on, locals will try and sell you things and all of the hostels are small. The staff are really friendly. I was really impressed with the safety, as I left early for a flight and the gates all locked up with a man beside ensuring safely. They organize torus to red frog/day trips which I recommend. I would definitely stay here again as it was the only hostel on the water and not on the street.
