Not having checked the reviews in advance I am quite surprised by the negative reviews.
I moved to this hostel coming from hostel Mundo also in town and had a far better experience here than in the other place.
Pros: on the water and availibilty of tubes
Good food (daily deals are best option)
Close to the parties but not a "party hostel" (music dies down around 11)
Most of the nights have 1$ beers
Negative: walls are thin so noise travels (its a hostel)
Staff sometimes focuses too much on locals and their own friends
There are people selling tours and drugs (tours were only offered by the same guy while we were there who was actually a nice guy; drugs is offered every 50 meters you walk in Bocas)
Overall I had a great time at this hostel, met great people and would recommend it to anyone
