I had a very enjoyable stay at Hostel Heike. It was a cool looking place in one of the older buildings right on the main street. It was quiet, but not boring. (If you're looking for a party scene, seems like their sister hostel Mondu Taitu is the place to go.) The staff was the best I've found in my travels through Costa Rica and Panama - they are so friendly, helpful, and cool! The rooms were fine, although I would request a room on the top floor. I was briefly in room 1 right behind reception and I don't think I would've enjoyed my stay as much had I not moved upstairs because there wasn't a window, it was a bit loud since it was situated between the lobby and laundry room, and it was generally grimier. The pancake breakfast served until noon and the rooftop lounge were great touches. Pretty much the only problems I had with the place (slow and spotty internet, very weak showers that sometimes stopped running) had what I'm sure was a lot more to do with the fact that I was on an island off of Panama, rather than any fault of the hostel itself. A HUGE plus was that this was the only hostel where I saw people cleaning it every single day! And that includes the rooms themselves, too, not just a quick sweep of the halls or anything. I'd highly recommend it!
