    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Skully’s hostel is literally on the shore. Traveller’s get relaxing scenery , artistic ambiance ( pirate theme), and professionalism from stuff that was easily rival a beach resort; all for a very affordable price. Definitely the best value for your money regarding accommodation in the island. The hostel’s strategic location provides a quite, relaxing, and secure location away from the busy city center. Bonus: Hostel provides transportation to the city cente

    The hostel is well equipped, very well decorated and has an incredible view. There are a lot of mattresses and hammocks to enjoy. The restaurant food is really good, and more important, the beer is cheap! Definitely in my top place in Bocas!

    If you are seeking tranquility from the hustle and bustle in Bocas Town, a hostel right at the seafront with all amenities (bar, restaurant, surf+atv rental), then you should seriously consider this place. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the atmosphere of the house was really laid-back and relaxed. Would definitely book here again.

    A true beach lodge in every sense of the word, complete with a lounge-swing right over the clear Caribbean water. Plenty of space to chill and socialize. Pool is cold, clean and chlorinated. The pirate theme throughout is the coolest. Food is fantastic, staff is friendly and helpful, and the property is thoughtfully laid out. The kitchen area is so sweet and you can watch the waves while you cook. Location is a bit out of town so be prepared to taxi or bike. Skully's is paradise!!!!!!

    Awesome stay at SKullys! Facilities are top notch and the setting is just amazing! Granted it is a little way out of town but given that there is not too much in town the $3 taxi is not a problem (there are also free daily shuttles offered by Skullys). Would highly recommend this spot if you are visiting Bocas and want a nice accessible spot away from the bustle of the main center!

    Really cool hostel, it’s out of the main town so you need to take taxis but it’s in a good location for Playa Paunch and Buff. Staff are super nice and helpful and the beds are comfy. Also a pool and beach front. Was low season when I stayed so no one really around when I was there

    Good hostel with many areas to chill ! I really loved the layout of the dorm, and that you had a huge locker so all your stuff will for in it! All beds also had their own fan light and plug to charge your pho! It's only a 3 dollar taxi ride to the town and they offer two free shuttles to town each day.

    After arriving early from a night bus (as I assume many people do) We paid the $6usd to get out to Scully’s just to find nobody around at all.. we arrived 7am reception not open until 8am.. we also unfortunately arrived on a Monday planning to buy breakfast..No breakfast available on Mondays..meaning we have to pay $12usd to go back into town and back out to Scullys again, plus the price of breakfast. But we can’t check in.. so there’s no where to leave our bags Better to stay in town 100%

    Anyone can just walk into this place and up to the dorms which aren’t locked. The ‘private beach’ is tiny but the pool is nice. Staff don’t start until 9am which is frustrating because the night buses get you to the island around 7am. There’s a weird vibe because families come for lunch during the day, so there’s no sociable hostel atmosphere. It is a really cool place but we felt a bit trapped as there’s nothing to do around there, especially in poor weather. Much better to stay in town.
