I looked at at least 5 other hostels trying to find somewhere decent to stay in Bocas del Toro and Hostal Hansi is definitely the a huge step above the rest for the price. The rooms are clean and well maintained and the share are good and the staff are lovely. Great value for the price, don't bother looking elsewhere.

I had researched accommodation before arriving at Bocas del Toro and Hostal Hansi seemed to be the ideal combination of reasonable price and decent rooms - good value. It is in a great location too for restaurants, tour offices, boat travel, supermarkets, etc. The day I arrived it was full (starting to realise low season doesn't equal plentiful rooms at...

We stayed 5 nights at Hansi and it is an exceptionally clean and nice hostel to be in although it is more like a guest house. We had a double room with private bathroom for $25 a night. Cheap. No breakfast unfortunately. However it does have a really nice kitchen and a fridge with space for each room. We ended...

This place takes great pains to keep clean, and it shows. It's nearly spotless, spacious, and some of the rooms have really cool balcony. The shower water in the rooms with hot water are as hot as any in Central America, the kitchen is big and clean, the shared fridge is ordered by room number for zero confusion. This German...

I liked this hostel very much. We paid $28 for a nice double room, private bathroom, balcony and TV (it wasn't working during our stay though), good WiFi, very clean and well organized kitchen, friendly people and very quiet.

My friend and I shared a private room w/ a private bathroom for $35/night- a great value compared to all the other places on the island! This hostel was extremely clean, very well kept and the staff was very friendly. It's in a perfectly centralized location, you are literally less than a minute walk to the water taxi, main plaza...

For $15 I got a secure room and bathroom, hot water and WIFI. $15! Considering that Bocas is dangerous and dirty, its nice to have a secure place. The couple that run this place are all business! At check in, they give you the drill about not bringing in guests and no parties and all that stuff. It was reassuring,...

We spend 3 nights, double private room at Hostel Hansi. It was very clean, they changed towels everyday, everything worked well and shower was clean and had hot water. It felt like we were in 3 strar hotel not in a hostel. Would I go again? YES!

The room was ok but not more than that. Our room was probably the worst in the hostel as it was the only one left when we arrived. No hot water (which was promised up front), the view from the room was not great and staff was not the most friendly we came across in Panama. I would not particularly...
