    Good hostel. Great location and relaxed vibes. Only negative is private room bed is extremely creaky! I know other reviews mentioned that as well.

    We had a lovely stay at Twin Fin and opted to return after a trip to another island. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful and made us feel at home. Breakfast was good. The bathrooms were cleaned in the morning but quickly became very dirty which wasn’t ideal. The atmosphere was good and we met lovely people - not a party hostel which was what we wanted!

    Relaxed beach hut style place with everything you need. Needs a renovation to the shower area but the new owner is committed to an extensive renovation and I would happily go back to see the changes if I’m ever in bocas again.

    Cute little hostel that's a bit away from the centre. The breakfast was very nice and the kitchen was fine. The air-conditioning didn't really work and they only have cold showers, but for me that wasn't a bit problem.

    Very Good

    The room was not very comfortable, the bed was squaking everytime you move and the common area could use some pillows, that way it would be a lot more comfortable. The staff was nice and helped you with everything and you get to the water taxi to Almirante and the other islands very quickly. Also restaurants, bars and the bus to Starfish beach are very close.

    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$.

    Not great, not bad. I had higher hopes based on the reviews. The kitchen & giant picnic table upstairs were the highlights. The bar was closed the second day for a holiday. It would have been nice if staff let us know ahead of time so all their guests could have planned ahead - we’re not from Panama. We left earlier than the included breakfast started for the border and were told we’d be shown what to do to make it ourselves but then the girl just left for the night. Not helpful. Not memorable.

    It wasn't as clean as the reviews on Hostelworld suggested... got a lot of mosquito/bug bites during the stay despite covering myself with an intense bug spray every few hours; and there were only 2/3 showers and 3 toilets (plus one outside on at the entrance) for the entire hostel. Girls working at the hostel weren't very knowledgeable about Bocas, so had to get help/information from random travel agency nearby instead. Breakfast pancakes were delicious. Great night time security and bartender.

    I don’t unterstand the good reviews. Pros: breakfast included, very central on the main island Cons:Not enough bathrooms, not very clean, I had some stuff on my bed that looked like sand fly or bug eggs. Mattresses were not very comfortable and worn out. Sheets looked dirty. Everyone in my room was very nice but we were all shocked because this was supposed to be the “clean” hostel on the island. Pretty expensive for what you get too. I’d rather stay at aqua lounge or Selina’s the next time.
