Luego is the best place to stay i Bocas. Great ammenties for the value and always very cool people. Comfy beds, great AC, hot water, and anything else you really need. The hostel is always very clean and welcoming and its set up perfectly to allow for social things to be sperate from sleeping so you can party or sleep without disturbing others.

Luego is clean, nicely decorated and pretty friendly. Alex, the manager, has definitely done a great job in decorating his hostel and there are loads of nice areas to relax while it is raining.
I've only got a couple of minor complaints about it- our bed sheets had loads of holes in, the shared showers just have shower curtains and no doors so it doesn't feel very private, and sometimes it was a little bit loud when people got back at 4. However, none of that is particularly important. It's a really good base for nights and days out, and also just for relaxing after a night at Aqua.

Great hostel in a great location just off the main strip and right next door to a supermarket.
Very clean rooms and shared bathrooms.
Dorm room needed better lighting but AC was great.
Pancake mix and coffee included was lovely.
Great social areas on all the floors including lovely sun deck.
Bathrooms sometimes had a bit of a smell but were very clean.
Linen and towels were provided.
Staff were really helpful and friendly.
Try to book in advanced.
Would definitely stay again.

Great hostel for chilling in, good kitchen and communal area with satellite tv. Free make your own pancakes for breakfast. Also next door to Mondo hostel for a party, and short 2min walk to the main road. Our private room was same price as dorm and had 24h AC!

This place is fantastic! I have stayed here twice, and I've got to say it has been a great experience both times. It's quiet, has a really cool vibe, great atmosphere and art, very clean with lots of amenities. The bathrooms are especially clean and well lit, with hot water, and are nicer than some hotels! Free pancakes and coffee is always nice and helps save money, so that is a nice perk as well. More important than anything though is that the staff, Alex & Taylor, are awesome. Anything you need, they'll help you out. We had some crazy requests, but they came through for us! The rooftop deck is also really cool. Thanks a bunch guys, we'll be back for sure, we know it will be great!

Room Tip: Spring for the private rooms if it works for your budget, but all have air conditioning

My stay here was OK but it didn't blow me away by any means. The location is OK - nothing is "far" if you're staying in Bocas town.

Pros:
Comfy beds
Free cook-your-own pankcakes breakfast
Free AC
Nice communal areas
Clean

Cons:
6 bed dorm quite dark/dingy
Room was constantly damp, even with use of dehumidifying AC.
Flaky WiFi
Inconsistent pricing structure
No lockers

On the last two points - everyone we spoke to seemed to be paying a different price whether less than us or more than us with a free night after staying a certain number of nights. When we came to pay we were asked for more than we'd been quoted, although the guy was happy when we reminded him what he'd originally said.
There are no lockers in the hostel. When we asked if there were, we were told that 'the hostel is safe'. Well, a hostel/your stuff is only as safe as the people that are in the dorm with you, and how does the hostel guarantee that they won't go snooping when you're not there? It can't, so it needs somewhere to securely store your valuables - lockers are pretty much standard everywhere. There was also something about the staff that wasn't quite right and it affected the atmosphere.
Hosteluego wasn't terrible by any means but for me, definitely wasn't a favourite.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms next on the ground floor - they're dark and dingy.

This was my second time staying at Hosteluego, I absolutely love this place. The installations are beautiful (specially the rooftop!), LOVE the artwork, decor and the whole vibe of the place. Most importantly its clean, even the bathrooms. The staff and manager are very friendly. It has entertainment all around, the most delicious pizza place nearby and a supermarket just beside it which is quite convenient. I 100% recommend it!

Room Tip: Private rooms are the coziest and they have A/C
