This was a really enjoyable place to stay. It's run by Olaf, who is a kind and friendly host. He's a great cook and has a lovely kitchen, which he was more than happy to let me use. Our double room was very comfortable and cool, with soft a huge double bed, clean bedding and comfortable pillows. The en-suite shower room was very clean and the shower was hot and powerful. The living area is really large and beautifully designed, there's also a small garden.
The hostel was much further from town than we expected. After going to dinner in Boquete one night, we had trouble finding a taxi to take us back. It seemed that the drivers were aware of the location or existence of the hostel. This was very frustrating. It is a lovely property, but probably more suited to older couples - not 20- or 30-something backpackers.
