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.

Hostal Hansi is a lovely little hostel right in the middle of Bocas Town. Close to supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Has the best kitchen of anywhere we have stayed in South or Central America. Nice balcony outside the room with table and chairs. Would definitely stay here again.

My girlfriend and I were backpacking through central and South America and were met quickly by someone staying at the hostel. Having been met constantly by people trying to pitch and sell, I dismissed her positive reviews but realized quickly she was a guest and not affiliated with the hostel at all. The front desk agent/owner from what I could...

We had a lovely 4 night stay at Hostel Hansi. We were made to feel very welcome by the lovely staff and the room was very nice and cleaned to an excellent standard daily. A great choice for couples with rooms at very reasonable rates. We would certainly recommend.

Clean, functional, spacious, cheap and just really good value! We had a private room, which we truly enjoyed. Every day we returned to fresh towels and a cleaned room. We had own bathroom - and the room was not at all expensive. The kitchen was one of the few hostel-kitchens that was NOT disgusting... Organized fridge-shells, clean tables and pots....

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)....

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...

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...
