My girlfriend and I stayed there for two nights in two different rooms: a dorm that was offered as a private room and a double room.
The rooms were kind of improvised: the "windows" give you a view of a wall 30 centimeters away from your nose, the bathrooms were very dark (which didn't help since there's little lightning in the rooms) and the towels they gave us were raggedy.
People at the front desk were nice and helpful, but the guy in charge of the hostel (the owner?), unlike most of the people at Bocas del Toro, wasn't really friendly. At exactly 10 am, the maple syrup was taken from my girlfriend's hands and we were reminded that checkout was at 11.
