    I simply loved this place. I originally intended to stay for 2 days, but ended up extending twice (similar to others) because it was so amazing. The staff is super helpful, the rooms and bathrooms were always pristine, and the general mood was amazing. I was originally worried about the distance from the city centre, but it wasn't a problem as they provide a free shuttle at 10am and 12 midday every day, and taxis from town are really easy to catch for only $3 (fixed price) from the centre.

    As seasoned backpackers we hardly ever leave 10 star ratings, with that this place deserves every star and then some! Words cannot begin to explain how much we fell in love with this place - the staff is super friendly and amazing. Now to keep it fair this hostel is not the closest to town and will involve a taxi to get to it but they do have twice a day FREE shuttles into town to grab what you need. The staff also provide FREE breakfast items for you upon check in!

    I absolutely loved staying at Scully's House. It was a real treat. When I got there, I couldn't believe how lucky I was! The location is so gorgeous and they have wonderful little touches. I really loved the unique sleeping arrangements and the oil lamps they had to light every night. I wish I could have stayed longer and I still dream about going back.

    Amazing hostel! Love what Steve made this into, he was so creative when designing the rooms, most the beds are on different levels, with stairs or a ladder leading to a huge full size mattress! There didn’t seem to be a door closing off the room from the rest of the hostel but there’s lockers for your stuff so it didn’t bother me at all. The location was great! You can literally roll out of bed, cook breakfast in the outdoor kitchen overlooking the ocean and then lay by the beach all day!

    A great place to stay in Bocas. Outside of the main town but close to beautiful bluff beach. The owners went above and beyond to make sure you were comfortable, and the beds felt private and comfortable.

    Great stay at Skullys. Friendly staff, beautiful dorms and a good mix of surfers, families, couples and singles. The pool is part salt water (fyi), the food is great (but expensive) and their kitchen facilities are the best I've seen in Panama (there's two!). Steve and the gang are a lot of fun, and I highly recommend you do the jungle ATV tour... Very challenging and makes for a hell of a day.

    We’re an Australian and American couple and skullys place felt very familiar and homey for us both. Great place for surfers, and those not wanting to party every night!
