Bocas Surf School & Hostel on the other hand is the perfect choice if you're looking for a low budget accommodation with a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Not every traveler on a budget likes to be close to the party scene or share a room with a lot of people. If you want to stay in a hostel but still be able to enjoy your own personal space, this location will be the perfect fit for you.
It's ideal for Spanish students, as it's only a 4 minute walk door to door from our Spanish school, and also because it's right over the water!!! If you're coming to an island in the Caribbean, what more could you ask for than to be directly over the sea? Fancy a swim in the paradisiacal turquoise waters of Caribbean Sea just before or after class? Done! The waters in this area of Isla Colon are always without waves so it's perfectly safe to take a dip or go sea kayaking right off the hostel's deck.
Located just 2.5 blocks from Main Street (3rd Street) you're still close enough to easily walk to restaurants, clubs, and bars, but far enough to be able to relax in peace away from the center of town. This neighborhood, just as with our Spanish school, is in a much more "tranquilo" and laid back part of town.Small Hostel = Cozy Atmosphere
The small size of the hostel (11 beds total) makes for a cozy environment, the complete opposite of the other three hostels featured on this page... although this also means that you have to book in advance if you want to save your spot! Sure, you'll have to pay a little bit more than if you'd stayed at Tungara or Heike but if you can afford it and really need a place like this, it's well worth it.
The large Caribbean house that was redesigned to function as the hostel has one dormitory which sleeps up to 4 people (two bunk beds), as well as a private room that can accommodate up to 3 people (on a bunk bed that has a double bed at the bottom, and a single bed on the upper part). These two rooms are downstairs and share two full bathrooms between both of them.
Last but not least, there is also a private cabina located above the hostel with its own private bathroom, hot shower, sink, mini-fridge, air conditioner and private balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea, ideal for couples in search of some romance or solo travelers who just fancy the additional independence.
Embrace paradise: students can enjoy the private terrace with ocean views in the back of the hostel to do their homework, read, surf the internet, or sunbathe on the private docks. If you get too hot just jump off and take a refreshing tropical water dip with the fish.
Also worth mentioning, if you don't feel like eating out every day and want to save some money, note that the hostel has a communal kitchen for everyone to use at their leisure. In addition, you can also enjoy the free wireless internet connection, a living room area with books and sofas, and hammocks on the terrace, overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
And finally, if you want to learn how to surf (or already surf and need a board), the manager of the hostel also runs a surf school and camp, and has plenty of boards for rent as well as providing daily surf lessons both in the mornings and afternoons.Location
