We stayed 5 nights at Hansi and it is an exceptionally clean and nice hostel to be in although it is more like a guest house. We had a double room with private bathroom for $25 a night. Cheap. No breakfast unfortunately. However it does have a really nice kitchen and a fridge with space for each room. We ended...

This place takes great pains to keep clean, and it shows. It's nearly spotless, spacious, and some of the rooms have really cool balcony. The shower water in the rooms with hot water are as hot as any in Central America, the kitchen is big and clean, the shared fridge is ordered by room number for zero confusion. This German...

I liked this hostel very much. We paid $28 for a nice double room, private bathroom, balcony and TV (it wasn't working during our stay though), good WiFi, very clean and well organized kitchen, friendly people and very quiet.

the hostel has hotel standard with (only private) clean rooms, own bathroom and wifi. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay hostal hansi probably is the best price-value accomodation in bocas. we tried to pay by credit card but the woman at the reception told us that it didnt work so that we paid in cash. when...

My friend and I shared a private room w/ a private bathroom for $35/night- a great value compared to all the other places on the island! This hostel was extremely clean, very well kept and the staff was very friendly. It's in a perfectly centralized location, you are literally less than a minute walk to the water taxi, main plaza...

For $15 I got a secure room and bathroom, hot water and WIFI. $15! Considering that Bocas is dangerous and dirty, its nice to have a secure place. The couple that run this place are all business! At check in, they give you the drill about not bringing in guests and no parties and all that stuff. It was reassuring,...

We spend 3 nights, double private room at Hostel Hansi. It was very clean, they changed towels everyday, everything worked well and shower was clean and had hot water. It felt like we were in 3 strar hotel not in a hostel. Would I go again? YES!

The room was ok but not more than that. Our room was probably the worst in the hostel as it was the only one left when we arrived. No hot water (which was promised up front), the view from the room was not great and staff was not the most friendly we came across in Panama. I would not particularly...

We stayed here for a week and would have stayed longer if possible. We had a private room with a very clean bathroom inside. The water vacillates from hot to cool, but that was fine for us. We found all the staff to be really kind and helpful. We especially liked the kitchen and that each room has designated space...

I have a huge complain about this place. Yeah its clean and everything is all so german (i am german also) but the way how they treat customers and workers is way beyond human! My friend is living in this place since already five weeks cause her boyfriend is surfing. She got really sick and is not allowed to leave...
