We checked into Mondo Taitu as a last resort when we left our other hostel due to bed bugs. They had only one double bed left and it was right next to the reception/common area. For $24, and no other options and we reluctantly agreed. No concern for bugs as they fumigated minutes after we arrived. My boyfriend and I...

We stayed for 4 nights here in a dorm with a fan for $10, but they give yoi a $1 discount each night if you stay more than 3 nights. It's a 5 minute walk from the main street in bocas. There's a shared kitchen, with 2 big fridges and 6 hobs. They give you free pancake batter in the...

This was almost the worst hostal in my trip. The girl at the reception was NOT nice, looked like she was annoyed and doesnt make you feel welcome at all. The guy at the reception later was nicer.The room was okay, very small wooden locker and a fan that we used because it was hot! The music was loud en...

Mondo is very much a cool place, there's interesting art work all over the place and lots of amatuer philosphers have written strange phrases all over the walls. The staff were quite helpful and friendly and the bar that they run in the front has excellent value (happy hour has 75 cent beers). So good times were had here. However...

My traveling troop of five found Mondo by chance when the first hostel we stopped at didn't have the space for us. It must have been fate because the next 4-11 days were insanity. The staff at Mondo made our stay without question; they are like a little family united here in Bocas by their love for making Mondo the...

I didn't stay in the hostel but while I was in Bocas for the week my friends and I somehow ended up going to the bar there almost every night! The staff were super fun and friendly, and the place was great to meet other travellers over a beer or five... We also rented surfboards from there and Luke even...

This time last year, I was visiting Bocas del Toro on a research cruise for school and stayed at a neighboring hotel. Although I was not a guest at Mondo Taitu, the staff there went out of their way to accommodate my stay in the small island town and make me feel welcome. The facility itself is something strait out...

I stayed at MondoTaitu back in July and I can't fault my experience. The staff were always willing to help, were friendly and looking to get you involved in the ultimate Bocas experience. Whether you wanted to surf, chill, go to the beach or party the staff would always point you in the right direction. The rooms are basic but...

This hostel is perfect for you if - you like invasions of huge ants in your dorm - unfriendly staff that basically ignores all the guests - people taking cocain in your room - loud music all night - and a dirty kitchen that is always crowded (it`s impossible to prepare your breakfast) and doesn`t really work If you`re not...
