I was in several hostels in Bocas and Heike is best combined price, cleanliness, service and location. It is a fun typical wooden house Bocas and colors right in front of the park which ensures quiet at night if you want to relax and just 2 min of the different bars if you want party. The best is the staff,...

Thank you so much for giving Heike the best overall in Bocas. We know that a hostel is the sum of many part and we try our best to touch on each on of them. We were happy to hear you liked out typical Bocas style house, friendly and social but quiet atmosphere and the roof top balcony. Glad you...

This hostel, whilst the staff were so pleasant and helpful, is a total rip off. The dorms are expensive and our air conditioning wasn't working. Bocas is so hot so AC was necessary. The bathrooms are also not clean and the whole hostel had a really dark, depressing atmosphere. I'd recommend selina hostel for a more social atmosphere. We left...

Hostel Heike was a nice place to stay in Bocas town. The walls were colourfully painted clapboard which made it really pretty. The breakfast of pancakes was good (you had to make them yourself though) but there were no bananas while we were there. The hostel was social but chilled, if you want to party there are always people up...

Perfect if you like to connect with other travellers. The accommodation itself is outstanding for a hostel. Hot water in the shower, neat and clean. The lady that takes care of everything (Diana) is so friendly and has a bubbly personality, she has the connections for going on great trips on the island. Highly recommended!! Definitely going back.

We arrived in Bocas shocked by the prices of dorm rooms. Of all the hostels in good locations, Hostel Heike is the best value. Laid back staff are really helpful and friendly. Well equipped kitchen and free breakfast. Great little hostel. Good atmosphere for meeting people if traveling alone.

I stayd there for one night. I took the Room with AC and there was a beep noise all night long. It really drove me crazy. Long beep sounds for a second, after 2 seconds again. Thats why i left today already. The hotel is nice, staff is ok. (Beep came from two different sides outside of the room)

We stayed 1 Night in the dorm which was very noisy next to the balcony. If you stay in another dorm its much better. After we switched to a private room. Very simple but totally Fine for that price. Stuff is amazing and kitchen has everything you need. Would come back Any Time.

The Star I am referring to is the star given to this hostel in the LP guide. Although this hostel may have all of the amenities you are looking for, including wifi, filtered water, a kitchen, a roof-top, it still wouldn't be my number 1 recommendation for Bocas. Here's why: -the shower stalls are tiny and I questioned the cleanliness...
