Bambuda Lodge, Bocas del Toro, Panama
10.0
21st Sep 2016

This place is in a class of its own. Very much separated from the party atmosphere of Bocas, it's a place for young travelers to relax. All food is for sale (and it costs about $5 every time you want to leave the island) but meals are reasonably priced and the nightly dinners are phenomenal. Jungle hike is totally worth it (but very muddy) and leads to awesome snorkeling at the end! You pay your bill at check-out, and it's easy to rack up drink/food purchases without realizing it, so be aware.

Hostel Kinkaju, Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

20th Sep 2016

Very new hostel that clearly had a lot of hard work and love put into it! The place is BEAUTIFUL, the owners are lovely, there are 2 fully equipped kitchens, and the upstairs patio is perfect for hanging out at night (especially when it was raining). Very calm and quiet, overall. It is only about 4 blocks from downtown Puerto Viejo but quite a few kilometers from all of the popular beaches - rent a bike.

This place could not have been more perfectly located - less than 5 minutes from the middle of town and only a few steps from the beach! The dorms were big, and this was honestly the only place I've been where a 6 person dorm had 2 private bathrooms. Staff were great and even helped 2 of my friends find other rooms when they were booked! My only note is that the tours through the hostel are more expensive than what you can find elsewhere: $25 for a turtle tour vs. $15 right down the street.

Really nice hostel with great atmosphere! Really comfortable beds, wonderful breakfast (I was seriously craving those plantains for weeks after I left), and plenty of social space for socializing with other travelers. It's a bit of a hike into downtown San Jose (15-20 minute walk), but it's a very safe area and Uber is cheap. I would definitely go back!

Wonderful location with very big, clean, rooms that felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Nice rooftop bar with good food available for purchase as well as restaurant attached to the hostel/hotel. Not much of a typical hostel vibe and a bit hard to connect with other travelers here. Otherwise, very nice place!

Wonderful location very close to city center, very helpful staff, and large common area with good food available for purchase. There were a couple of very large (teenaged) school groups that came through during our time here which made it very hard to spend time in public areas. Bathrooms were also not very clean - it wasn't unusual for toilets to overflow and for that water to be mopped all over the bathroom floor. Be sure to bring shower shoes. Overall, worth it.

Definitely a party hostel with lots of opportunities to mingle, drink, and explore Miami. Rooms are small but solidly fine. Close to the beach and staff always have some sort of drunken endeavor planned for the night.

Perfect location with easy access to the city and beach. Beds were comfortable and outdoor area was perfect for socializing or spending time alone. Definitely recommend.

Great, central location with some of the nicest hostel beds and showers I've seen. The privacy curtains are great! Free food is a plus too. Only negatives would be the oddly-arranged and slightly run-down common room and the urine smell by the front door, but those are really pretty minor things.

Excellent location! Bathrooms were plentiful and very clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the lack of a kitchen/common area, but space is hard to find in NYC, and the price here was reasonable.
