    Had a really wonderful stay here. It’s a bit of a pain to get to but that just adds to the beauty. Got a gorgeous view of the mountains and lots of hiking trails and other activities. Food was cheap and simple, but it was nice not having to cook. The staff were so interactive and fun, they also remembered everyone’s names. Really recommend if you’re an adventurous traveller

    Really beautiful hostel in the middle of nowhere (forest) Lovely atmosphere where you are surrounded only by a nature and fellow backpackers. The hostel is quite large and you always find a spot to relax in a hammock. They provide breakfasts and dinners for 5$ each, the food is decent. Beds in superior dorm are really comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay and loved every minute.

    We really enjoyed our stay at lost & found! From the beginning, the atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed the food, particularl the lunches and dinner which were very tasty, vegan and only 5$! Although the lunchtime service was extremely slow and often took over 1 hour to receive the food. We loved that dinner times were around 1 big table because it made it super easy to sociale. I also did a hike to the viewpoint, big tree and river which was stunning and would highly recommend.

    Extremely unique hostel due to the incredible location. Social bar area as well. Really comfortable beds with hot showers most of the time. Nice, friendly staff- food is slightly overpriced. Kitchen area is ok. Would recommend to stop there on the way to bocas or Panama City

    Worst kitchen I've ever seen in a hostel! You can bearly cook pasta. It took me more than an hour to cook some pasta with veggies. They only have a minibar-sized fridge for this huge hostel. Clearly they don't want us to cook up there and buy their food for 5$. Sad thing is that their food is tasteless and very basic. Rest of the hostel was fine but guys please invest in some gas stove.

    Firstly it’s an absolute trek up a really bad path (especially with big rucksacks and no chance doing it with a suitcase)!! The kitchen was pretty grim and pretty unuseable so don’t bother trying to cook there! The basic dorm was dirty and sooo loud as right next to the common area! The toilets were absolutely gross and a trek to get to from the dorm! Cold shower! The food was also pretty basic and tasteless with not much option and for a lot of money! Only good thing was the staff who were helpful!
