    Exellent hostel. Run by a friendly family. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Next to an airport. Only few planes operates per day.

    We spend 5 nights at the Cataleya Hostel and if we could have, we’d stay even longer. That probably says it all. The Hostel is in walking distance to all the restaurants, water taxis, bike rentals, … And whenever we needed a recommendation for restaurants & activities, the owners showed us the best option. Generally living in Cataleya Hostel feels more like living in a host family. We spent a lot of time together and the lovely owners made our stay very special! We can highly recommend Cataleya!

    If you want a crazy party go to Selina, but for those of us who want something more, come here— the hostel owners are truly wonderful people who go far above and beyond to make your stay great, and the smaller size of the hostel creates a very friendly environment where everyone hangs out and does things together. It was very hard to leave this place and I can tell that the friendships I made here— including with the hostel owners— will continue for years to come. I can’t wait to come back!

    Great Hostel! the owners are very accommodating and amazing. The hostel is great, especially if you have a flight the next morning, as it is right next to the airport. However it works for anything since Isla Colon Bocas town is so small everything is walkable. The only thing that is missing is a view (unless you are an airplane aficionado). Great place, clean, hammocks, good amenities, etc. Would definitely stay there again in the future!

    Rescommended heavily. Juan and Mariella are fabulous hosts and you will feel like at home. It's in nice walking distance to the main square and in the end I was sad to leave. Cataleya is perfect!

    A beautiful family that are so happy to welcome you into their home. Great atmosphere, 100% recommend. Tip: Book the Zapatilla and Island hopping boat tour through the hostel for the best rate ($25) and ask Mariella to make you some of her yummy empanadas to bring for lunch!

    The best hostel experience we have had since travelling in Central America for the last 3 months. Felt like home from the moment we arrived. This is a family hostel and Mariella and Juan were super welcoming, offering heaps of info on the island and feeding us her delicious and famous Argentinian empanadas! We made lots of great friends at the hostel and on our last night we all chipped in for a big hostel family BBQ that was the perfect send off. 10/10 recommend. Until next time amigos!
