    Il posto è davvero carino, immerso nella tranquillità. Ottima location, ci si arriva a piedi dal porto o dall’aeroporto, si può andare a piedi a prendere il bus al parco per girare l’isola, c’è un supermercato e il molo di fronte. Personale cordiale e gentile. Offrono inoltre servizio di lavanderia (vestiti pronti in un’ora o poco più!!) e una buona colazione. L’ostello ha una terrazza molto bella dotata di amache in cui rilassarsi. Ci tornerei!

    Such a chill little place to stay, very special if you're backpacking and you want to spend time with a great community! Everyone is so laid back — it’s gonna be hard to stay away next time I’m in Panama!

    The hostel is basic but is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and it has all the facilities you need. It is also very cheap for breakfast. Great stay overall and is even better than it looks in pictures

    A very nice hostel for this price. It’s located near the town centre, so a great start for your stay in Bocas. The staff are very friendly. Facilities are fine and clean, nothing fancy but that’s to be expected for this price. All and all we had a good stay here. Thank you Twin Fin

    As a group of 4 we had the room to ourselves, staff were super helpful and really friendly. Our door wasn’t able to lock but the staff said that there is someone constantly watching from the desk and CCTV. Overall good value for money, clean and functioning facilities 😀 👍

    Ive been here before and i saw many the change. The atmosphere doesn't exist anymore, you cant bring alcohol from ouside and there is no breakfast included. You have to pay for the coffe but it isn't always ready. The place its just cleaner, but I guess its even due low season. Twin finn its a nice sweet hostel right for short stays. Always racomended for low budget travel.

    Volunteers were so friendly and would give the people 10/10 but more biodiversity than the rainforest. You name it twinfin hostel has it. Cockroaches, frogs, BIG crabs and bed bugs. I still feel itchy writing this review. However the nice people I met there bump the review up to a solid 7.1

    We had booked here when we decided to stay an extra night in Bocas. The info was misrepresented as there were massive renovations underway in the common spaces and hallways. The staff were generally nice and helpful, however, our Private room was accessible from the main lobby and since the security is there throughout the night we could hear the playing music, drinking, and chatting until 4/5 in the morning. Our only fix was the play white noise off a speaker. Would not stay in that room again.

    The staff here is lovely. Very nice people and hard workers. It's the OWNERS I have an issue with. This whole place is falling apart and needs to be condemned. Would not recommend. I know it's cheap but TRUST ME it's not worth it. The owners need to take better care of this place and spend some money on repairs. All they care about is their bottom line, and I heard that they dont even live in panama - they live in argentina. No wonder they're removed.
