Not in the middle of the main area, but really nice located directly on the sea. Was there one evening. Beer for $1, Cocktails $5. Really good but expensive Chicken wings and french fries. Stuff was friendly. Good but much too loud live music, hammocks on a dock. Restrooms need an update. Would go there again.

I've stayed here several times when I visit Bocas. It's a basic hostel, not fancy and you need your own towel. I prefer the private room but the hostel atmosphere is the best in town. The waterfront location and restaurant are two more reasons to stay here. Make a reservation and see the room before you pay, standard practice everywhere in Bocas.

I don't know why people like this place, I didn't have a good experience here. The staff were unhelpful, disinterested and generally made me feel unwelcome every time I asked a question or needed help. The hostel is conveniently located in Bocas town, a 5 min walk from where the boat docks. It's right on the water, and the hammocks to lounge in were the best thing about this hostel. The cleanliness was very poor, particularly in the toilets. There were only two toilers downstairs one of which didn't work, and the hostel was full. I could not get the hot water working in the showers despite them telling me that there was hot water. Breakfast is not included. There were supposed to be secure lockers in the room but only one functioned in ours - and there were 5 people in the room. That said the bar area was a cool place to hangout in and it's location over the water helped the atmosphere.

Spent 3 months in Casa Verde this place is great! Right on the water, always a great vibe.. Be sure to get your $1tacos on tuesday & $1 beers all week. If you want to go diving or sit your open water this is the place to go! Good vibes good prices get on it!

Not sure why the reviews are all over the place for this hostel. Looks like there were some previous problems that have since been addressed. I was concerned about bed bugs, which seems to be a problem everywhere in Bocas. My room was clean, and I saw no signs of them. Good place with AC in the dorms, and waterfront location in the heart of Bocas Town.

yes i think there was a problem with the noise but now they stop the bar at 10pm, beachfront property so you can hang out and relax all day without moving and if you want so, well they have a front desk were you can pick a trip and awesome information.

Room Tip: take the time to look at the room on the web page and make sure ones you arrive they know what you a...
