About Bubba's House

Family-owned and run by friends, we at Bubba's want you to feel right at home. Our guests leave with new friends, memories, and most importantly smiles- when you stay at Bubba's, leaving is the hardest part.

Being a guest at Bubba’s

Bubba’s brings the relaxed Caribbean lifestyle of Isla Bastimentos to you, leaving the hustle and bustle of Bocas Town behind. Our hostel is positioned on wooden stilts over clear blue Caribbean water. Behind us is the idyllic, virtually untouched Isla Bastimentos, and in front of us are panoramic views of the rainforest-lined Caribbean Sea.

With a cold beer in your hand and a group of friends all around, Bubba’s really does feel like paradise.

Guest Reviews

I went to Bastimentos by myself and stayed at Bubba's House for quite a while. I really enjoyed being here as the atmosphere is always chilled, there are always cool people around and Bubba's offers nice tours to discover the island.
Matt K., USAAmazing Island, great place to stay
I went with my girlfriend to Bubba’s House and it’s a great place to stay in Old Bank. Great location (in front of the sea and on the center of the village) and nice and clean rooms. The hosts are a couple of very friendly argentinians, great people. I had an amazing time there and definitely want to come back!
