Overall place was ok. Big plus are the kitchen, free breakfast and roof terrace. Place is kept clean. But didnt stay, because dorm was very basic, no AC and beds were not very comfy... The showers are too small. Wifi was on and off and not consistent.

2 English girls in fan dorm - we really loved this hostel! Staff were friendly and helpful, especially Chris. The rooms were spacious with shelves and hooks. The bathrooms were large and clean.

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,...

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...
