We stayed at room no.10 which is very quiet. We did not hear any music at all. I don't have to tell you the details of this hostel cuz it has all the good things mentioned by other guess, better than some 5 star hotels. Highly recommended.

We ended up here because we didn't do enough research and oh how we regretted it! The hostel was great in many ways: clean, well furnished rooms (we had a double with bathroom for 33 usd); nice communal areas, good kitchen with lots of fridge space, and efficient service. However both nights we stayed it was impossible to sleep because...

The title says it all. Hostal Hansi was wonderful! It has the shared kitchen, common space and open atmosphere of a hostel (as well as the low price!), but the privacy of a hotel. The rooms are lovely, clean and airy. The shelves and clothes hanging space were just what we needed to be able to spread out comfortably. The...

Simple rooms. All you need. The owners are super friendly and helpful. The location is really good and close to everywhere. It is next to a place/bar next that plays loud live music. And it was such a din. They sang until 10.30pm and it was impossible to sleep. The guy sang like an italian opera crossed with spanish love....

This place is very nice and the staff is wonderful! The room was very clean. We had a private room with a bathroom and a balcony for $30- which is much better value than other hostels in bocas! It was a bit loud at night as it is close to the main street but we didn't mind. I highly recommend...

We had a room with balcony which was nice and clean. Because of the open character of the building you should bring your ear plugs though. Panamese people like to run their cars on idle, every morning we woke up because off the fumes from the cars and trucks in front of the street. All of Bocas Town is a...

Very nice hostel. Everything is made of wood and is therefore really atmospheric. The rooms are nice and clean. There is a well equipped kitchen and enough space in the fridge for each room. The receptionist was very friendly and eager to recommend to us supermarkets, beaches and other things. Very warm hearted place.

- Central to everything - Helpful Staff - Clean rooms and cleaned again daily - Good kitchen with a great model of fridge space allocation (you won't appreciate this until you see it) - Safe and security conscious - Ample, quiet common space - All for a good price (a double at Selina's was going to be 50% more) This...

This place is so nice. We stayed in a room with bathroom. The room is big and had a really comfortable bed, a table and chair, a locker and somewhere to hang out those stinky clothes that would otherwise be crinkled in your backpack. Our room had a window with a line to hang out the sandy towels. When we...

Stayed 2 nights in a private room. Perfect for basic needs, central Bocas in a relaxed hostal. The owner was always ready to help and answer any questions you may have, including best ways for onward travel.
