This is the coolest hostel I've ever been too. It is definitely a party hostel, although aside from the big party Wednesday night, which was great, the place actually quieted down relatively early (before midnight) and it was easy to get some sleep. The hostel being built over the water really helps cut down the number of mosquitos. I had some friends stay at the Kahuna just a little ways down, and that was a cool place also, but just hanging out there I got tons of mosquito bites. At the Aqua I didn't get any. The grill is good and the staff are friendly. Some people complain about spending the dollar for the water taxi, but it's really not a big deal. I'd much rather stay on Carenero than the main island, as it is prettier and quieter. There is a little grocery store on the island and several restaurants. You don't really need to go to the main island unless you are going to the bars over there or want some more dining options. The only thing I found a bit questionable is that the showers drain directly into the Caribbean. Bocas del Toro is awesome and I'm definitely going to come back, and when I do I will stay at Aqua again.

Aqua lounge is a sprawling hostel built on poles in the water - and you see the water between the floorboards. Large common areas and swimming in in-sea-pools, the hostel features a popular bar which is the one-place-to-party a couple of times a week, and has nice happy hour offers all the other days as well (which can make it kind of hard to sleep). There are some hostel-guests-only areas, so it's possible to wait the party out as well, should you wish to, but really; get out there and use the open-ceiling dance floor!

Room Tip: The dorms 1&2 (in the central area) are for partyers, while those more in the back by the kitchen are quieter.

Clean rooms, fun staff (really all of them), good food, cool facilities like a trampolin, swings etc. and every night something is going on like a BBQ, live music etc. and the common area to chill out during the day turns into a big party place on some days duing the week. Highly recommended!!

It is a very nice place to have fun, party and enjoy with friends. The location is exotic and you'll make lots of friends. If you want to relax/sleep then don't stay here...because is to have fun, but you won't regret your time it was awesome. The food was delicious.

This is a fun place to stay. Very unique and has everything you would need. Avoid the place on a Wedensday or a Saturday because there are massive parties. The owner is very nice and the majority of people are cool at the hostel. Cheap drinks and good food. OVerall a pretty good place to stay.
