    Pipa Loca Bay was by far the most loving and magical Hostel I have ever stayed at. I loved the family atmosphere and communal spaces (porch and yard) they created for their guests. It is a short bikeride away from the best beach breaks (they rent bikes too) and Katy, David, and Pierre are the best type of people. Helpful and intelligent they will give you recommendations for activities and places to go in tow and request that you compost your left over food. Hay perfecta!

    My friend and I had an incredible stay at Pipa Loca Bay. Such a great hostel on the water. Only a 20 minute walk into Bocas Town. We loved the staff and were very sad to leave!

    I stayed at the Pipa Loca Hostel for a week and was very sad to leave. Indeed, I could of easily stayed another week. David, Katy and Pierre were perfect host and made sure their guest were well looked after. It’s not a party hostel, but the town can be. The good thing is you’re just far enough out to not hear the town noise but close enough to walk in if that’s your thing. I couldn’t recommend Pipa Loco enough. You won’t be disappointed

    What a find!! Lovely friendly, attentive, cool staff. Great cat and dog. Felt at home immediately. Chill out area amazing- right on the water. Sunsets so beautiful. Best kitchen of our travels so far- every condiment available for free. Well stocked. Nice shower- sometimes a queue. Shower run off goes directly into ocean water? Is this normal for island? Dorm really jammed packed. Enough room to set backpack down but nothing else. Positives outweigh these minor faults though!

    Such a great hostel! My bf and I had a wonderful stay at Pippa loca. It has a really nice location, right on the water. We saw lots of fish and even some sting Ray's! The kitchen is decent and there are plenty of places to chill. Bam bam the dog is super friendly, and the staff are great. The 8 bed dorm is small and not much room for luggage, and no security rail on the top bunk which can be a bit unnerving.

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever been because of the vibe that the owners and the place create! It’s small which helps to meet new people, it has lovely common areas and an amazing view to the ocean, I totally recommend it if you want to have party in bocas but also be able to rest! We used to drink a bit in the hostel and then party in town! Perfect mix! Thank you so much!
