I had the unfortunate experience of going to the hospital while I was staying in Bocas, but the next morning after waking up the workers were all curious what happened and were very concerned if I was okay. The woman who works the desk (I forgot her name, sorry!) is one of the nicest people I met in Panama. She saw my wounds and told me if I needed anything to come to her first and even offered me free internet if I needed it (which is only .50/hour anyways). She is very kind & helpful, and her children that hang around the hostel are extremely friendly & helpful.
The hostel is VERY clean in comparison to others, and most (if not ALL) the rooms have an air conditioning unit... which is VERY nice and convenient. I would recommend this hostel to anyone and everyone, it is clean, well designed, A/C, and is right across the street from the park & several bars and restaurants. Perfect* location.
Next time I go to Bocas I will be sure to visit my friends at Calipso and catch the FC Barcelona game!
