I've been through Bocas many times and now always stay at Heike. It's got a helpful and friendly staff (restaurants, tours, taxi's and bus schedules all listed on the white board and drawn on the map), chocolate pancakes in the morning and a great ambiance, not to mention the two balcony hangouts with comfy couches and hammocks. Heike is on the main road and an easy walk to various restaurants, bars, laundry service and the only bank in town, and right across from the park. There's free internet, hot water, coffee and tea all day, and usually free bananas. The manager is super friendly with everyone and always inviting people in the hostel to come work out. She also takes care to introduce the guests to each other; in this atmosphere everyone makes friends pretty quickly.
