My favorite place for happy hour drinks! Always a fun vibe & great drink deals! The new owners are awesome and will help make sure you have a great time in Bocas. I love the small feel of this hostel... you really get to connect with the other travelers & get to know everyone!

I stayed in the Treehouse at Mondo and loved the local scene and family feel at this hostel. Their Happy Hour is the best on the island and generates a crowd all nights of the week, making it easy to meet new people and locals in the area to explore with. Mondo is a great place to start your time...

This is definitely a simple hostel. Rooms are basic and the bathrooms/showers could be a little better maintained. Having said that, the great attractive for this hostel is the atmosphere. You quickly get to know everyone, and it is a very chill yet social place. The staff are great too. Location is awesome, as you're close to the centre whilst...

We couldn't wait to get out of this hostel - the bugs, mosquitos and moths were everywhere, cockroaches in the bathrooms and large crabs scuttling across the bedroom floor. Bedroom fans pretty ineffectual too. Probably one of the worst nights' sleep I've had. Unfortunately no real party atmosphere the night we were here either. Disappointing.
