    Beautiful relaxing hostel just off the Main Street, staff don’t speak English but do offer laundry and a good kitchen area. Wifi is a bit hit and miss at times

    Awesome hostel! Booked 2 nights, ended up staying a week :) On a beautiful property right by a little stream. Good facilities, super clean and helpful staff. Only downside is lack of atmosphere, but we liked that as we were after a bit of quiet relaxation after 3mths of non stop travel. Thanks for a great stay!

    First off the lady that works here is probably the nicest receptionist I’ve ever met. Shes so calm and sweet, speaking in a soft tone. I’ll never forget her. Right out back is the river, which is amazing. The beds are all simple, nothing bad i can say. There isnt much of an ambience. Its peaceful and quiet here. I liked that a lot. It is not a social hostel. You come here to get work done, maybe do some reading and writing, chill, get a good nights’ rest. The only negative is weak internet.

    This place is amazing! We arrived here after over a month of cold showers, and some pretty dodgy hostels in Colombia. This was like coming home! Kitchen is spotless, showers were hot, room was lovely and comfortable, and location was great! Now, we were the only ones staying there, so it's a very chill, quiet buzz. But if you're looking for a place to relax, and have a good base for hiking, that's really clean, this is the place. We loved our stay!

    This hostel is an extremely great value and ideal location in downtown Boquete. Be aware it is definitely geared towards a less social atmosphere(budget couples or those looking for solitude). Not a party hostel! Only issues are some language barriers with staff(still got great help even with my rudimentary Spanish) and having to seek out tour info outside hostel. Highly Recommend!

    Great hostel, only thing to note is the wifi only works in/around the main house. Doesn't work in the shared rooms. Everything else was great

    Amazing hostel/hotel. Not a hostel vibe. Amazing if you are looking for quit relaxation. We had a private room right on the river. No social activities and the receptionist only speaks spanish. so close to city but far enough away to feel secluded and hear wildlife.
