Mamallena´s has an excellent location as it is right by the town square and is very easy to find from the bus stop. Bear in mind that this is a very busy hostel with many people coming and going so it may not be ideal for those looking for a relaxing hostel. The facilities are good, there is a large kitchen for guest use, 3 computers, an indoor communal room where you can watch movies and a courtyard at the back. There are also lockers and you can book shuttles or excursions through reception.


We stayed at Hostel Mamallena for 5 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The staff is very upbeat, informative and helpfull. Every 3 days or so they do a bar b q in the evening - you just sign up and pay $5. Some people contribute something {such as a salad] - . Mamallena's is a great place to meet good people from all over the world - many European's - mostly college aged - but many older as well. The facilities are kept very clean and you can get a basket of laundry done by the staff for $5.

Loved my stay here! The staff were welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere was good and the hostel was very clean. Kitchen - spotless, scrubbed every day and well equipped. Pancakes for breakfast were very welcome! A comfortable lounge, plus 3 other areas to chill out, read, socialise or just 'be'. This hostel is centrally placed for everything in Boquete. I would stay there again, definitely!
