Poorly equiped kitchen. The "included" breakfast is horrible (instant pancakes you'll need to prepare by yourself). The stuffmembers aren't friendly nor helpful (even if they arent on mariuhana....) But... if you'll go for a private, you'll have a private fridge - well done!

Firstly the beds in the dorm rooms are disgraceful. You can feel every slat on your back. Secondly, the party kicked off at the hostel at about 3am once the bars are closed. It seemed this was encouraged by management. Thirdly, I left my luggage in a "luggage room" whilst I went surfing. Came back later that day and my...

Just by walking around It seemed like majority of the hostels near the main st area of Bocas were loud & party vibe hosteluego did not feel that way. The rooms were decent. Free pancakes & coffee in the am. Back deck was great place to relax. Roof deck nice at night.

Nice hostel for what you pay. My bed was comfortable but I know people who didn't have such a good bed. Very nice with AC, hot shower and big couches that you can chill in. Down side is that if the ladies doesn't work it is kind of messy. The trash can is full, the kitchen, toilet and shower are...

When we stayed here bocas was really quiet so it was great to have a nice hostel to come back to. This was the first hostel in two months that we had hot showers......incredible is an understatement. The room was great with a/c and and even a little fridge. The only hostel we have came across this in so far....

Dorm beds are comfy and clean with the aircon beung such a treat but not as much as the powerful hot showers! The kitchen is very well maintained and great for cooking. What makes this hostal exceptional is the chill out areas, they have the front hall with couches and hammocks, a back area with TV, a bench to crack...

I've had some bad luck with Bocas hostels, but I really enjoyed Hosteluego. The rooms have A/C; there's great common spaces; and it includes all you can eat pancakes for breakfast. The beds could have been better, but they're not as bad as some other reviews are claiming. All in all, highly recommended.

The relation price / benefits is really good. Very clean, they have very good bathrooms. The kitchen was really clean too, and they includes "all you can eat" in pancakes at breakfast (and coffee). The only thing that I suggest they can change (urgently) are beds. The problem is that the mattress was horrible, and the bed sounds a lot,...

I had a great time there it was clean and centrally located. I would recommend it to anyone! The staff was very helpful. On my experience at other hostels it is usually loud but this place was quiet and each room has a/c and a fridge also I didn't bring my computer so the two hostel computers were clutch

“dorm next to kitchen does carry some noise, no big deal though.”

“Rooms upstairs will most likely be more quiet”

“: Try not to get the dorm rooms near the bottom front because of the road noise and sounds of the door and drunken surfers coming in at 2a.m. or going out to catch some waves at 5a.m…. Also, the best breakfast on the island and pretty good pizza can be found just within a 5-minute walk, just up the street (you can’t miss the light-brown lacquered/stained wooden building on your right, just before you get to the main street).”

“as far away from the manager's room as possible...”

“The back rooms are quieter. I was across from the kitchen, but the noise level was all right. The front room on the left was noisy because of the lounge, and it was a gloomy, crowded six bunk room. The others I can't speak to.”
