The cleanest hostel during our whole trip through Costa Rica and Panama. They have a small kitchen, and every room get its own fridge shelf. We had a private room with an own bathroom, balcony and hot water for about 30 $. They also have a nice small garden where you can eat your breakfast or just relax. The hostel...

I arrived on Bocas del Toro and was advised by some Germans that the best place was the Hostal Hansi during mid-Septmeber through September 28, 2014. I didn't have a reservation but was told to try again on the 22nd....so that is what I did. I walked to the Hansi and the racist receptionist looked me in my eyes and...

Very well kept rooms, getting cleaned daily. Kitchen is big enough and well equipped for the amount of guests. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Only drawback: not really a common area to chill out, only a couple of chairs and tables but no hammock for example.

I got to Bocas after a really tough day and went to Hostel Hansi, I asked if there are any available rooms and I was told that the hostel is full for the next 4 days. Then I asked to use the WiFi in order to look for another hostel and was refused. A day after that I met two...

Clean, welcoming staff and good sized rooms. We had a triple for several nights and really enjoyed our time here. Our beds were comfortable and clean, which isn't always a given in some hostels... The kitchen was also clean with everything you need (except a toaster). Great place, highly recommend.

Safe, spacious rooms with private bathroom.Nice kitchen with refrigerator and gas.It has a basic wifi (not so fast but ok).Helpful and knowledgable staff for the bocas area. Restaurants, bank, laundry service, supermarkets and tour operators are within walking distance from the hostel. I highly recommended if you are on a budget!

It's just spot-on: this hostel's focus is rather on those who seek comfort and privacy out of their tight budget than on those who only want parties after parties. This wooden house is lovely with a nice small garden in the front, plus two adorable lazy cats. It's located right in the centre of downtown Isla Colon, and is close...

Lovely helpful staff with great advice and humour. Excellent value, our room was beautiful and huge with two beds, bright bathroom and a table with chairs like our own house within a house. The kitchen facilities are great and really clean. There is space set aside in the fridge for each room and other well set up systems. Really liked...

Magically quiet right off the main road, Hansi offers a perfect place to relax after a day at the beach or out adventuring. After switching from another hostel farther out, this place seemed like paradise! While a little quirky, they don't allow visitors for example, the hostel is extremely clean and fresh feeling. Every room has its own space clearly...

I really enjoyed my stay at Hostel Hansi. The staff was super friendly. I had a private room with private bathroom (#4) in the ground floor for $15 per night. I stayed one night. Everything was really clean. I especially liked that the trash was separated and that the owners took care of details such as the colour design of...
