Tungara Hostel really is in the perfect location to explore all that this amazing region of the world has to offer and get down with some of the amazing partying that happens here!

The Location

Right in the heart of the downtown strip of Bocas Town, you will find the Tungara Hostel. It is a vibrantly coloured building right across the road from the park and only a five-minute walk from the water taxi that transports you in and out of Bocas Del Toro. On this main stretch you will find restaurants, supermarkets, a pharmacy, laundry, and any other things you might need during your stay here including collectivos and taxis to the beach. It is the perfect location for partying and seeing and doing activities while you are in Bocas Del Toro.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms here are super clean and modern and equipped with good quality mattresses and sheets. Rooms are secure and the hostel staff are there twenty-four hours a day to provide security. The staff also keep the keys with them at the front desk and you return the key to them as you leave given so that your room stays secure, given the high numbers of theft around Bocas Del Toro, especially in the evenings when you are partying. The bathrooms are interconnected with the rooms, are well maintained, and have cold water showers.

Common Spaces

Tungara has some seats and tables in the downstairs area for people to sit and socialize in. This is located just outside of the kitchen, which is well equipped for cooking and provides free pancake breakfast in the mornings provided that you cook the pancakes for yourself. The hostel also provides free water for you to have as long as you purchase the first bottle to refill. The Tungara Hostel is an environmentally friendly hostel and has an abundance of different recycling and environmental policies such as energy conservation to help keep our planet green.


The staff here at Tungara Hostel are super helpful and friendly and speak a combination of both English and Spanish. You will find them to be full of information about things to do in the town and where to find all of the things that you may need during your stay in Bocas Del Toro.
