    Really enjoyed my time at Cataleya. The staff and owner were very friendly, the location was great, and the beds were comfortable (pillows sucked though lol). It is very quiet at night which is exactly what we were looking for, yet everyone was very social and chatty during mealtimes and whatnot so it was a great atmosphere. Good common areas, good wifi, and would definitely recommend!

    Pros: Wonderful staff and cozy atmosphere. Everyone was very kind and made sure we were comfortable. It feels more like a guest house than a hostel. I didn't hear any planes while I was there. Cons: The dorm was really hot without any fans. Also, there is a strict 9:30am check-out and you must leave the hostel after 9:30am. I've never seen check-out this early, nor have I been asked to leave the hostel common area right at check-out time. It was a weird ending to an otherwise great stay.

    The hostel stay was really nice! The vibe is very chill, the location is good and the rooms are clean. Unfortunately our stay ended unpleasantly when the owner threatened to call the police on us over a small communication error.

    Nice hostel and for the price in Bocas pretty good and good location, few drawbacks - the one bathroom, the one (quite blunt) knife and the WiFi in our room didn't work + no AC. Some lovely staff - Malika and Matias. However, there was a weird situation where the owner blamed us for a girl staying in the hostel without booking, making up that he saw her come out of our room on camera which we know was not true as it didn't happen. Otherwise, roof terrace was really nice and the TV with Netflix.

    A decent hostel for a few nights in Bocas. The dorm I stayed in did not have AC, there was only a small window to the other dorm which did have AC so it got quite hot at night. Staff was helpful. Lots of friendly travellers to explore the town with here!

    Nice rooftop social space and kitchen, great staff. Dorms better than private - dorms have aircon and wifi works. Overall overpriced for what it is but so is everything in Bocas del Toro.

    The main issue was the cleaning. The hostel is not cleaned daily (every 2-3 days) which means that during busy times the bathroom is just disgusting with an overflowing bin and a dirty toilet and shower. The bedrooms get dirty and so do the common areas. There’s not enough space for everyone upstairs when full. The kitchen is missing some utensils like a knife that actually cuts. The volunteers working there were nice and helpful. The owners no longer live there. Location is good.
