We walked around town trying to find accommodation. The hostels were very expensive even for dorm rooms so privates were out of the question. Don Chicho was still expensive but for a couple sharing in a private with bathroom worked out cheaper for us than staying in a dorm. However the room was clean, we had a balcony view over...

don chicho is located at the perfect spot. You can walk everywhere within 5min and you are far enough from the party street to sleep well. As a girl travelling alone i felt safe at all times even at night. There is also a laundry service for 4 dollars you can use. The W lan is fast. The rooms have...

We didn't have reservations anywhere since it was the low season. We walked around town for a little bit, and this placed looked nice from the outside. It was $33/night, had private bathrooms, and AC. After two, hot nights in a hostel in Casco Viejo, we wanted a private bath and AC, so we went with it. The rooms were...

We got a room on the 4th floor with a full and a twin bed. The ceiling was slanted in our room but it was still bigger than our friends' room on the 2nd floor. Not creepy at all, no sketchy people. Quiet and respectful other guests. Reasonable pricing. Slightly loud (vibratey) AC unit but we adjusted it so that...

Very basic hotel but with everything you need. Close to everything since Bocas isn't that big and yet not too loud since it's not where all the bars are at. Friendly staff helps you with tours. Wifi in the rooms!

The price is so cheap here...I arrived without reservations and wasn't sure I was going to stay there. The desk clerk ended up throwing in a free night, so I think you can negotiate on price here. Some rooms in Panama smell moldy due to the humid conditions, but this room was so clean and fresh smelling. I was really...

I vist Bocas every year, as part of a University program, and I love the landscape and the wonderful reef and its great diversity, but the town is getting bad. A lot of drug dealers, and tons of garbage on the street. Something has to be done, not for the tourism, for the locals, and their life quality. I stay...

I have to say, our stay in this hotel was very pleasant. The staff was so accomodating. Mr Ariel was nice enough to make our bus reservation to return to the city, and found a person to give us a tour to Coral Cay and Red frog beach. Amazing, the room was big enough for my gang, and the laundry...

I stayed here my second nigh because my hostel was booked. It smells amazing and clean, has air conditioning everywhere and good internet. It was a great value. Best nights sleep I had in Panama. Really comfortable beds and good air conditioning. TV too! So cheap if you share a room. I paid only $33 for 2 people.
