Bocas Bound is everything you could ask for an a hostel. Great people (literally the friendliest patrons I've met while traveling), awesome and friendly staff and clean, clean, clean. The dorm sleeps 12, but is set up so that you feel like you are in a room of 4. Very clean bathrooms, nice kitchen and a gorgeous walk to a gorgeous beach.
Just come a little prepared. Despite what the website says, breakfast is not included. In Red Frog Beach there are only 2 restaurants (with limited menus) and no super markets. I wished I had gone grocery shopping before coming to the island. The prices are what you would expect for being on an island ($4-6 for breakfast, $10 for dinner).
If you are looking to side step the party Bocas Town, this is the PERFECT alternative and there is still plenty of action to keep you occupied. Wished I had stayed longer
