We've been at the hostel for a couple days. Great conditions, the crew is so kind and helpful and a very decent price. Although we had many troubles and things that we change our mind they helped us a lot!

Stayed at Hostel Heike for 4 nights whole getting my Pasi Open Water at Diving Pirates. The two are very close to each other so I can recommend either of them. I had the AC room for just 2 dollars more which was nice. The staff is very friendly and the kitchen supplies whatever you need, albeit a bit low...

I love love love this hostel. The staff is super helpful and always makes you feel at home. Great coffee and banana pancakes and a wonderful location close to all the activities and trips. It's a wonderful value for your money and is a home away from home.

Overall this was just an ok stay at the hostel. I found it great that they offered a kitchen that you could make breakfast at it but it wasn't anything special. It was clean and had a fair price but was overall an average trip.

We enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights. The DIY pancake breakfast was awesome. Drinkable tap water and free coffee and mini bananas. There wasn't an option on hostel world, but we asked for a private room and got one for just a couple dollars more with fans. This place is HOT and the plastic mattress covers make sleeping a...

Nice and clean hostel, right with the playground in Bocas Town. The staff was very friendly and you meet cool people from all over the world. Only thing I would say that was a little bad was the Wi-Fi. Enjoy your stay in Bocas del Toro and go for Hostel Heike! 👍🏻

Over all the place is awesome. Great location and everything you need. Near buses, restraunts, boat taxi and party places. Has great kitchen, wifi and free water. Rooms were clean and tons of space.

I stayed 4 nights in that hostel. The staff was friendly and the location central. If you decide to book your bed/room there, try to get the room in the back in order to avoid the loudly noise of the next door bar music till approx. 1:00 AM. The safe boxes provided in the room are too small to store...

We spent a night over there in a privet room with shared bathroom and it was ok. The fans didn't do much, there wasn't hot water , not good wiifi and the pancacks were with alot of cinamon!!! We thought the price (28$) was high for value. The staff was helpfull and it was in a perfect location.

For 11$ a night this hostel has so much to offer - free pancake breakfast until 12 (!!) so you actually don't miss it every day cause you partied the night before. Also amazing staff! Location is also really good and they've got a really nice rooftop terrace
