Casa Marbella, Miss Junie's or El Icaco Lodge??

Which one of these three hostels should I book at? Casa Marbella and Miss Junie's have about the same rates (50$ for two), El Icaco is cheaper (35$). I've read great reviews for all three so I am a little lost...

I vote for Casa Marbella -- if you can get a booking since they are booked up way in advance. It's right on the river/lagoon and they have a dock where I spent a lot of time.

But really , either of them would be fine.

We practically lived on the dock at casa marbella, watching the sun set with a bottle of centenario. Basic, rustic and spotless is how I describe cb. They also do the best canal tour in their electric boat.
