    What a great bunch of blokes and girls working here. Absolute no brainer to stay here in Bocas. Dorms great, food best of any hostel I’ve stayed at (100+) great location, great party at reasonable hours but quiet after 9 if you need to sleep. Don’t even look anywhere else.

    The most memorable hostel stay yet. Luckily enough to arrive on a Friday and made some incredible memories in filthy Friday and the location was just unreal. You have to try it for yourself!

    Such a great place to stay in Bocas del Toro! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is just really relaxing and great. We we’re impressed by the good standard and also the complimentary breakfast including waffles and pancakes. Would defiantly come back, and I especially reccomend this place if you are interested in participating in Filthy Friday as this hostel is the last venue for the arrangement.

    Amazing staff and atmosphere one of my Favorite hostel in Central America so far ! Food from jjs kitchen was just like being at home and Jj always had a smile on his face which made the food even more incredible. The food is so fresh they make everything from scratch !The only negative was no soap in bathrooms and paddle boards to rent for 2 hours cost €20 each which is a little expensive!

    If you are doing FilthyFriday, I recommend staying at Aqua Lounge since its the party's last destination. This way at the end of the night you can just drop in your bed without having to worry about taking a boat. The hostel has really nice installations to chill and swim, but it is pretty quiet as there is no activities organized by the management. Food is amazing and it is very easy to get there (only 1$ water taxi). Friendly staff, comfy bed Cons: Bugs in bathroom and only cold water showers

    Aqua Lounge was a great stop to stay for Filthy Friday, the staff are accommodating and the food/drinks are great. Weren’t very many people there, but probably due to low season. The hostel itself is pretty great, being able to jump off into the ocean is amazing! Opt for the air con room, it’s HOT

    When I paid in full at the end, they told me the $20 deposit I paid on website doesn’t count toward the rooms because they list the beds for $10 on website but they’re really $15. They wouldn’t give me my passport back until I paid the extra. Also, water costs money even to fill up your own water bottle, and reception is closed from 23:00-7:00, so if you need water between those hours..... sucks to be you
