Hostal Hansi

Hostal Hansi is a great place to stay. We got room number 7 with a own balcony facing the street. The room were awesome! Bathroom was really clean and we enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony in the evening! The room was cleaned every day so that was also very good. The shared kitchen was clean and well equipped. We cooked there alot. We paid 30 us dollars per night. We highly recommend it!

This was the best cost/performance ratio I have experienced in my whole life. Simple, clean rooms with quality matresses. And very friendly owners. The kitchen is very nice, you get a dedicated place in a fridge.

Clean and mellow place with friendly staff. Best value in Bocas. Highly recommend! Especially nice if you speak German.

Good location, everything you need is not further than 1 or 2 blocks. Beach is a little bit further a walk, but you need bikes or a boat to get to the good ones anyways.

When we had to leave this hostel to travel to other areas of Panama we were sad - it was like saying good by to our home. We felt really safe there, and it was clean and bright, with a great balcony (including a small table and chairs).

I found it to be quite quiet here (except on Friday and Sat nights).
The owners do smoke, and they don't prevent guests from smoking in the rooms, but because of the new law in Panama that you can't smoke indoors in public areas we didn't find it to be an issue in the common areas, and after a few hours with the doors open our place smelled fresh.

I would definitely recommend this hostel. Great value. Good vibe.

This hostel is very nice and bright. The rooms, bathroom, and kitchen are kept clean. And there is a couple cats (ncluding Hansi) that frequent the common areas. I arrived the first day around 11:30 and could not get a room because they were full already. So I spent the night in a dingy hotel with a leak, and came back the next morning around 10:00 and was able to get a private room. The woman who runs the hostel is a bit brisk, but she was not rude to us. The fridge has sectioned areas for each room, and the wifi reached our room. The shower was hot, but heated in the shower head (can be dangerous.. But works fine). We had a little balcony off our room with a table and chairs to eat breakfast at. In all, the accommodation is worth the money if the owner does not put you off.

Do not ask yourself where to go in Bocas. This is the place. For 25 or 23 dollars you have full room service as in the hotel plus kitchen to use, dinning room, rest place. It is new, extremely clean, every room has it's bathroom and toilets. The owner does not accept unclean people, and it looks as she prefers gain less but have only proper people. It is not the place for drinking and smoking. It is fantastic. We visited all hostels in bocas we slept in some of them, but here you get more than you pay. To compare with it is a 4 star hotel with european standards. Don't look elsewhere and go here immediately. Thank you
