    Stayed nearly a Month instead of a planned 1 week. Just because it was such a beautiful place with lovely people all around. You are a bit away from the town - which for me was a good thing - but with rental ATV and E-Bike or by Taxi (3$) it is very easy and quick to get into town. Since it is a bit outside it has a very nice View as well. So for me a well deserved 10/10!

    This place is awesome. I can't say enough good things about my stay. The facility is so artistic, the staff is friendly and treat you like family, the amenities are incredible. I stayed in the dorms and was able to use the pool, games, and bar. This place is nice for everyone and has a little bit of everything for whatever you are looking for. The location is great, you have the view of the ocean with beach beds and lots of hammocks. There are two kitchens with lots of space. I loved it so much!

    Really good place to stay. Steve and Ronda actually care that your stay is a good one. The place is cleaned regularly. Attracts good people so it’s a good vibe. Beautiful views from the common area/kitchen. There’s two kitchens that have everything. The dorms have a cool set up so you have ur own privacy and maybe a double bed! Walking distance to four surf breaks. I ride into town for supplies and the road is beautiful.

    Skullys House was the perfect spot to chill out in Bocas and be close to the surf and to the town. You can’t beat being right on the beach with a slew of fun games to play and a great bar/restaurant with a friendly staff serving up tasty food and drinks to you. The place is kept immaculate and also offers the option to rent electric bikes and quads. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is heading to Bocas Del Toro as a nice out of town option. The owner made it a very fun experience

    Tough one this - hostel is nice in terms of looks, games, staff are pleasant and has a bar/ restaurant with a nice chef. However in many ways it deeply lacks; the rooms are absurdly hot at night, my fan personally was loud and terrible, the staff are patently useless in terms of giving advice about where to go and what to do - the place was dirty… rooms and toilets were sandy and smelt of urine/excrement. The room also had lots of hanging nails randomly and the vibe is somewhat odd, weird crowd
