Simple rooms. All you need. The owners are super friendly and helpful. The location is really good and close to everywhere. It is next to a place/bar next that plays loud live music. And it was such a din. They sang until 10.30pm and it was impossible to sleep. The guy sang like an italian opera crossed with spanish love....

This place is very nice and the staff is wonderful! The room was very clean. We had a private room with a bathroom and a balcony for $30- which is much better value than other hostels in bocas! It was a bit loud at night as it is close to the main street but we didn't mind. I highly recommend...

We had a room with balcony which was nice and clean. Because of the open character of the building you should bring your ear plugs though. Panamese people like to run their cars on idle, every morning we woke up because off the fumes from the cars and trucks in front of the street. All of Bocas Town is a...

Very nice hostel. Everything is made of wood and is therefore really atmospheric. The rooms are nice and clean. There is a well equipped kitchen and enough space in the fridge for each room. The receptionist was very friendly and eager to recommend to us supermarkets, beaches and other things. Very warm hearted place.

- Central to everything - Helpful Staff - Clean rooms and cleaned again daily - Good kitchen with a great model of fridge space allocation (you won't appreciate this until you see it) - Safe and security conscious - Ample, quiet common space - All for a good price (a double at Selina's was going to be 50% more) This...

This place is so nice. We stayed in a room with bathroom. The room is big and had a really comfortable bed, a table and chair, a locker and somewhere to hang out those stinky clothes that would otherwise be crinkled in your backpack. Our room had a window with a line to hang out the sandy towels. When we...

Stayed 2 nights in a private room. Perfect for basic needs, central Bocas in a relaxed hostal. The owner was always ready to help and answer any questions you may have, including best ways for onward travel.

Hostal Hansi is a lovely little hostel right in the middle of Bocas Town. Close to supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Has the best kitchen of anywhere we have stayed in South or Central America. Nice balcony outside the room with table and chairs. Would definitely stay here again.

My girlfriend and I were backpacking through central and South America and were met quickly by someone staying at the hostel. Having been met constantly by people trying to pitch and sell, I dismissed her positive reviews but realized quickly she was a guest and not affiliated with the hostel at all. The front desk agent/owner from what I could...

We had a lovely 4 night stay at Hostel Hansi. We were made to feel very welcome by the lovely staff and the room was very nice and cleaned to an excellent standard daily. A great choice for couples with rooms at very reasonable rates. We would certainly recommend.
