My wife and I spent Friday October 11 to Monday October 14 at Bocas Bound Hostel. I could give numerous examples of how the service is anything but decent. I am not hard to please, but the staff at Bocas Bound were not great.
The beach was amazing. The hamburger at the restaurant on the beach was great.
The air condition was nice and cold, however, it leaked really, really bad. I put a trash can under the leak and it had overflowed by the morning.
There was mildew on the doors going into the bathroom.
The bed was comfortable, sheets were okay.
It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach.
Keep in mind, that if you plan on heading to Bocas Town, it's $5 during the day and $10 at night each way.
Overall, it was a very lack-luster experience as far as the Hostel and its staff is concerned.
The beach was quite amazing though.
If you are any sort of picky, DON'T STAY HERE. If you don't mind a few quirks, it will be okay.
breakfast is NOT included in the price.
