    Cute hostel, but lacking a bit of atmosphere. Good if you are looking to just chill out, decent location - far out enough to avoid all of the noise from Bocas town but not super far

    Very Good

    Room was very basic and small. Window opened up to the main street and even while it was closed had lot of external noise. There is one small wooden plank with limited space to keep things. No knob or door holder for bathroom, so while you can keep it locked from inside, no facility to keep it closed or locked from outside. Staff were good and friendly. They organise tours / shuttle options. It's close to the park where one can take a bus or the port is just 5 minutes by walk.

    Only a short walk to the mainstreet, so the location is good. Breakfast with pancakes, fruit&coffee was also nice. Showers and bathrooms were clean. The hostel is painted nicely, the chillout-area in front&hammocks were nice but the rest of the groundfloor was full of stuff lying around, which creates a messy garage feeling. Rooms don’t have a lot of space for luggage but are clean. Kitchen it is not well equipped at all,eg.only a few glasses&plates. Staff very friendly, beer only 1$.

    One of the most basic hostels I’ve stayed in. Bed was uncomfortable. No chairs to chill out on. Cold showers with nowhere to hang towel or clothes to keep them dry. Best scrabbled egg I’ve had in a long time!

    Quite frankly, I wish that my partner and I had not stayed here, and we will not be returning. We are both avid travelers and have stayed in hostels all over the world, and this was one of the worst. It’s ok if you just need a place to crash, but the rooms have no windows, the beds are uncomfortable, it is dirty all around, and the general atmosphere was just somewhat alienating/bad vibes. Would not recommend, and we’ll be telling our friends to give this hole in the wall a wide birth. Sorry :(

    I had a terrible experience with the owner and the manager of the hostel - they sold me a room that had paper thin walls and a wooden shutters instead of a window. It wasn't safe and liveable. I was the first person to stay in that room after it was added at the reception part of the hostel, and it definitely didn't feel safe or liveable. I was not given even a partial refund, and was treated in a very dismissive and rude way by the owner, who conveniently lives in Argentina. AVOID.

    $30 a night dorms but no running water during our 3 day stay. This is a known issue during peak season, but other hostels had water - as we know from having to sneak into them to shower. This one simply didn't care. There was no warning on the website or on arrival. We couldn't wash our hands or flush the toilets, creating a health hazard as human excrement built up. Staff were friendly, but negligent management refused to give us a discount. Rooms are cramped and tiny with concrete floors.

    DO NOT STAY. Paid, saw the room, met the staff, and left within 10 minutes. The '4 bed dorm' was a literal shed. I was the only one in it and felt cramped, no way 4 people. Staff had left the light on and there were mosquitos hanging in the air. When i asked for the ac remote to try to purge the bugs (also it was HOT) staff told me no ac til 8 Pm. Staff were cold, unhelpful. I paid in full owner refused refund for 7 days and I STILL LEFT. I paid 180 CAD to not stay there. SH**BOX! 0/5
