Hostel overall was nice, good, well equipped kitchen and really nice roof terrace and chill out area. Rooms were hot but clean and comfy. Warm showers was a definite plus. Breakfast of make your own pancakes was a good idea, and really liked the free water, bananas and coffee. Mostly the stay was made by the staff, they were all... More

We had a very nice stay at Heike, nice atmosphere, very chill people. The hostel was clean and comfortable, only cons are the closing time of the rooftop at 10 pm and the unstable wifi. I'd recommend anyone to go there and will go back for sharks!

Heike was a nice place to stay. Location is good, although with a town as small as Bocas, every location is central. We booked a private room, which lived up to expectations for the price. There is no AC, so expect hot rooms. The staff was very friendly and provided some good advice on tours and transportation. Public areas are... More

Heike is a small, colourful hostel with great staff, free make-your-own breakfast and balconies to sit out on. There is a small communal kitchen, filtered tap water and wifi (which is very slow if everyone is back) Beds are comfy and clean. It is in a great location on the main strip and near lots of supermarkets.

Overall place was ok. Big plus are the kitchen, free breakfast and roof terrace. Place is kept clean. But didnt stay, because dorm was very basic, no AC and beds were not very comfy... The showers are too small. Wifi was on and off and not consistent.

2 English girls in fan dorm - we really loved this hostel! Staff were friendly and helpful, especially Chris. The rooms were spacious with shelves and hooks. The bathrooms were large and clean. Showers hot and powerful! The kitchen is well equipped and large enough for a few people to cook at a time. There is free pancake breakfast. The... More
