    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 😁

    Such a lovely place, really feels like home. Very welcoming stuff, the manager seems to really do his best to provide fun and homey experiences for all the guests. Lovely garden, super cute dog, peaceful but lively place. The walk to town is super pretty. Rooms are colorful and comfy, tents seem really nice too. Loved the pasta night, kitchen is great as well! Highly recommend this hostel, one of my very favourites of all times.(:

    Such a lovely environment as it's a working Spanish school but also a paradise chill out spot. I was looked after so well by Ricardo and we had such a wonderful arepa night. Tranquil, beautiful and great rooms as only ever 2 people per dorm!

    I had a wonderful stay here! The staff was very welcoming and informative about what to do and how to get around in Boquete. The hostel was very lovely, one of the nicest and cleanest I've ever stayed in. It has a kitchen and a small grocery store just a few minutes walk away for cooking. It's a 10 minute taxi ride out of the main Boquete center, but to get there is only 60 cents! I would definitely stay again.

    You need to take a shared taxi to get in town but they are frequent and inexpensive. The owner / manager is very helpful and the hostel is one of the nicest and cleanest I have ever stayed in. Within two minutes walk there is a supermarket and two breakfast places that can come handy. Maybe not the best place to meet others but that can be a plus too.

    Different mix of people from most Hostels (older), kitchen in good shape, appreciated the 2 person dorms, the helpful staff and the fresh mountain air. The kid goat and chickens added to the relaxed atmosphere. The few minutes taxi ride (60 cents) to get into town didn't bother me.

    Nice place with a great common area and garden. A bit outside of Bajo Boquete town but you‘ll get there by bus or taxi within approx. 5min (bus can take longer).
