Really cool hostel. Happening place in the evenings and really great drink specials - especially tequila night. Although, its hot and there are so many flies and mosquitos everywhere. The bathrooms and kitchen is kinda nasty. We just felt dirty all the time and we got some of our food stolen from the fridge - (which is not the hostel's...

We stayed in a private double room here in February 2013. The hostal is quite run down and needs a bit of smartening up for the money. We like to eat out a bit and cook a bit but the kitchen in this place was awful. Everything was filthy, no one seemed to clean up after themselves (despite signs everywhere,...

We stayed here for 3 nights... it was tolerable. We had a private room with a shared bathroom. The room was tolerable, though made cheaply. There was a gap/hole even when the door was locked. We shoved a towel in there to solve that problem. The bathroom was tolerable, but not as clean as it should have been. The kitchen...

Best spot to stay and drink at in Panama. If you like to get down and meet people this is the place to go. Not for the faint of heart or non drinkers. Go here if you want to get smashed with fun people and hook up. Get an AC room. The regular dorms are hot!

I recently went to Bocas for a school trip and found a great regular spot for social life. Mondo has the best staff, and honestly, as soon as you walk through the door, they treat you like family. If you are interested in culture/diversity, it offers the best of all worlds, as there are travelers from all over and even...

First off, mondo is a hostel. Keeping that in mind, the people who work at and run this hostel are some of my favorite people ever. It's a big, awesome, loving, raging family. If you want peace and quiet, stay elsewhere... But if you want to experience the time of your life with people you'll never forget, check this place...

My friends went to Mondo for drinks and it looked like an awesome time, so we switched from our original hostel. Well, the place was generally kinda gross, staff wasn't too friendly or interested in helping you out, and the next morning we discovered that pink eye was going around the hostel. Not that the staff bothered alerting anyone to...

This place kicks a$$. Went down to Bocas del Toro for a 10 day trip and stayed for 3 months. I can't say enough good things about Mondo Taitu. The hostel has some serious character and has been around a lot longer than most of the surrounding hostels and hotels. They have a bunch of different rooming options (treehouse loft...

This hostel was absolutely perfect for where I was and what I was looking for. Obviously I was on an island and rolling with the island vibe, and mondo enhanced all of that. It gave me an awesome home base to catch a quick nap (no bed bugs,) grab a few 50 cent beers at the bar, convene with some...
