Hostel Casa Verde - Bocas Del Toro

 Hostel Casa Verde is probably the coolest hostel we've stayed in so far. It has tons to offer and is relatively cheap :D

Price : 33$ per night for a private double, including shared bathrooms with hot water ( I never had hot water while I was there), air-conditioning and mini fridge in the room. Free wifi.

Services/amenities : Waterfront, deck, tubes, grill, hammocks, restaurant/bar, full kitchen, cheap laundry service.

Rooms : The rooms were pretty bare apart from a couple drawings on the walls, but clean enough. The bed was comfortable and the linens very clean. The walls are definitely not very thick though, and we could hear conversations (and by that I mean a screaming drunk girl in the middle of the night making a scene) very clearly. Also since there is music from the bar right downstairs it's not the ideal place for an afternoon nap. The party moves on to nearby bars pretty early though, so it's not really a problem at night.

Staff : Friendly and quite helpful for the most part, they always answer our questions and even chatted with us a couple times.

Restaurant/bar : The restaurant at hostel Casa Verde was pretty expensive, but the food served was high quality. The choices were pretty limited too. Their BLTs (5$) and burgers (6$) are very good, but the grilled cheese (4$) tasted a little bland.

Bathrooms : The bathrooms always appeared very clean, with ample supply of toilet paper.

We loved staying at the hostel Casa Verde and would definitely recommend it! The atmosphere was nice and laid-back, the perfect spot to spend some time just relaxing near the sea.
