What a great place to spend a night, week, or month. Miguel is an amazing host; gracious and welcoming. Many options to choose from...privates rooms, shared rooms, and more! Close to everything Boquete has to offer, and the people alone are worth the stop. Gracias Miguel!

The Location is very good, bathroom and Roms are clean, big kitchen, good information desk, helpful staff. The hostel is in the middle of the centre, close to the bus stop and the supermarkets. We stayed there at the weekend and it was extremly loud due to the bar next door. They played life music after midnight.

As we arrived in Boquete we had to decide where to sleep now. This hostel looked nice and so we tryed to get a room there: And it was so easy. Breakfast is included, if you like pancakes - but you have to bake them on your own. The kitchen was very simple but does its job. Rooms are clean...

Stayed in a private room with private bath. Was big room. The staff are very helpful. Location very central. The building is a bit dated but not in a bad way. Because it so central can be quite loud at night with the bar next door. But part of the appeal. The breakfast is just pancake mixture which you make...

Great hostel in the centre of town. They offer loads of trips, tours and excursions in and around Boquette.

The hostel have lots of tours. We took the mini mountain + hot springs & coffee tour, 50$ total. We had amazing guide called Gabriel and it was fun. The coffee was a little bit boring, take it only if you really want to learn how they make coffee. All the stuff are nice, patient, kind and know english. We...
