    My time here was really nice! Adam was very helpful, friendly and made it a great stay. I like that they're putting work into the garden because that's a really nice feature. The hostel is a bit out of town which is actually nice, a short and cheap bus ride in. Pretty relaxed vibes, really nice kitchen as well. And cool chickens walking around! Would for sure recommend 😁

    This is a beautiful place a bit outside Boquete. The staff are wonderful and very helpful and the place is kept very clean. Big back yard and hammocks for relaxing. I did the coffee tour through them and loved it! The only negative thing is that there might not be a lot of atmosphere. It's a smaller hostel and smaller rooms. Not ideal for solo travelers if you're unlucky
