Hostel Heike has a great atmosphere where you can meet people to hang out and party with in Bocas Del Toro. The staff here are really helpful but speak mostly Spanish and a little bit of English.
Hostel Heike is in the perfect location in Bocas Del Toro, located right in the heart of Bocas town over the road from the park on the main street. You will find it to be only a five-minute walk from the water taxi and very close to all amenities that you will require during your stay here including supermarket, bars and restaurants, pharmacy, and laundry. It is about ten minutes from the major beaches via taxi or collectivo and you can take these from the main street to whichever beach you want to visit.
Rooms and Bathrooms
There are two stories to the building here and you will find dorm rooms scattered throughout both floors. Each of the rooms are super colourful and decorated. The beds are comfortable and clean with great linen and pillows. There are also small lockers in next to each bed for you to be able to secure your valuables in if you have bought your own lock with you.
Bathrooms and toilets are located outside of the rooms. The shower cubicles are small, with not much space to hang things but the upside is that they do have hot water. The bathrooms are cleaned daily and to a good standard.
In the hostel, the main area to hang around is in the foyer area downstairs near the kitchen and outside on the front patio area. The kitchen is large and clean and they do free pancake breakfast every morning with all of the toppings provided you cook the pancakes yourself. They also have free tea and coffee provided all day here and in the lobby there are banana stacks hanging from the ceiling and you can take one as you please.
The hostel is locked up at night time so you need a key to enter the front door keeping the place secure as they do not have twenty-four-hour reception. It is a really cool place to stay and one of the more popular hostels here. We would totally recommend staying at Hostel Heike!
