This little hostel, right in the town center, 50m from the dock, has unbeatable price for the quality of service ($30). Room 9 was big and clean, as was the private bathroom. The couple at reception desk is one of the most welcoming and helpful we've had in a long time. Kitchen is clean and organized (a bit small though).... More

We are currently staying at this hostel and it's one of the best hostels we've stayed at in our trip so far. The receptionist was really welcoming and friendly, we are staying in a private room with terrace and the room and the bathroom are spotless and cleaned daily. There's no air con - just ceiling fan - so it's... More

This place felt more of a hotel with a kitchen than hostel!! The staff were so friendly & happy to help. Our room was lovely, had a giant fan which was really powerful. You can't reserve any rooms in advance & you let them know if your staying on a day by day basis. Current guests get priority Its a... More

Hostal Hansi is right in the middle of Bocas, a block off Main Street tucked away. The family-run hostel has a more subdued atmosphere compared with the larger backpacker hostels. Room rates are affordable and private and rooms are cleaned daily. Wifi is fast and available with three lines. They do not accept reservations, so make sure you get there... More

The price for our private room with bathincluded was about 36 $/night. The price is quite fair, especially when your looking at all things provided. Wifi is available and quite fast for hostals in panama. They cleaned the room every day and we got new sheets after 2nights!

Considering this place's great central location (right next to the ferry and water taxi terminals), it's got a very peaceful atmosphere. As a couple, it was perfect. It feels a bit more like a basic hotel but with other travellers around you which is great. There are large fans in each room and the fridges are divided up by room... More

Hostal Hansi was a very clean and safe place to stay. But the most horrible noise from the street 24/7 was awful. So the hostel is nice but the location is a disaster! Low season price for a double room was 30 USD.

Thank piiaki
