I stayed 4 nights in that hostel. The staff was friendly and the location central. If you decide to book your bed/room there, try to get the room in the back in order to avoid the loudly noise of the next door bar music till approx. 1:00 AM. The safe boxes provided in the room are too small to store...

We spent a night over there in a privet room with shared bathroom and it was ok. The fans didn't do much, there wasn't hot water , not good wiifi and the pancacks were with alot of cinamon!!! We thought the price (28$) was high for value. The staff was helpfull and it was in a perfect location.

For 11$ a night this hostel has so much to offer - free pancake breakfast until 12 (!!) so you actually don't miss it every day cause you partied the night before. Also amazing staff! Location is also really good and they've got a really nice rooftop terrace

Very friendly staff! Great environment for meeting new people with a relaxing rooftop patio. The pancakes included in the price have been my favorite so far during my travels. Safe and secure area as well! Thanks Heike!

Hostel overall was nice, good, well equipped kitchen and really nice roof terrace and chill out area. Rooms were hot but clean and comfy. Warm showers was a definite plus. Breakfast of make your own pancakes was a good idea, and really liked the free water, bananas and coffee. Mostly the stay was made by the staff, they were all...

We had a very nice stay at Heike, nice atmosphere, very chill people. The hostel was clean and comfortable, only cons are the closing time of the rooftop at 10 pm and the unstable wifi. I'd recommend anyone to go there and will go back for sharks!

Heike was a nice place to stay. Location is good, although with a town as small as Bocas, every location is central. We booked a private room, which lived up to expectations for the price. There is no AC, so expect hot rooms. The staff was very friendly and provided some good advice on tours and transportation. Public areas are...

Heike is a small, colourful hostel with great staff, free make-your-own breakfast and balconies to sit out on. There is a small communal kitchen, filtered tap water and wifi (which is very slow if everyone is back) Beds are comfy and clean. It is in a great location on the main strip and near lots of supermarkets.
