    The hostel is absolutely amazing with an unbelievable view of the mountains and the volcano. Hummingbirds, monkeys and a bunch of other exotic animals everywhere. They have really great tours such as a horse tour with the most beautiful view I’ve ever seen, as well as a really interesting coffee tour. The hostel is surrounded by hiking trails and there is a really nice canyon just 20 min by bus away filled with locals. A great place to relax and enjoy the nature or head up to the bar at night

    In my opinion there are three places you need to stop in Panama - Boquete, Bocas del Toro, and the Lost & Found Hostel. It is one of the best ways to experience the La Fortuna nature reserve / rainforest in Panama! The open-concept of the main areas and buildings make you feel like you are truly living in the forest, yet are sheltered, warm and safe. You constantly hear and see wildlife all around you. Truly a cloud forest paradise. There are so many trails and adventures to check out as well!

    The people and the view at lost and found make it the best hostel!! Everyone is so kind and welcoming and the hostel has a very chilled atmosphere. I stayed for 6 nights which was lovely. All the volunteers got involved in the day trips which helped bring all the guests together. Was so much fun!! Would highly recommend.

    10/10 experience!! Clean and comfy dorm beds as well as very clean facilities; with warm water and filtered drinking water. I was served breakfast, lunch, and dinner which were all fantastic meals! Gorgeous views from the hostel as well as great hikes and a short bus ride from a waterfall hike and river canyon. Everyone was super friendly and welcoming making me feel right at home. Perfect mix of chill during the day and fun social nights. Highly recommend the Lost and Found hostel!!

    I had a lovely stay at the lost and found:) There is so much to explore in the area and something beautiful everywhere you look. The accommodations were cozy, the food was good, and the atmosphere was fun and exciting. All around there was good views, good people, and good Shasta. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone looking for an adventure, a party or a place to relax.

    Irish receptionist is really sweet and is really trying to hold this decaying hostel together. Needs a good cleaning and some TLC. Location is incredible but feels like it was once a cool place and now needs a makeover. Kind like a 50 year old women who needs a new hairstyle and to leave her alcoholic husband. Was ok.

    It just wasn't my thing. The views were stunning, but it rains a lot due to the microclimate which affected my mood during the stay quite a lot. The common area is undercover but we still got wet during dinner. The showers / toilets are quite dirty and due to the rain also the floors of the dorms got quite dirty. Staff was mainly American, and although they were not unfriendly I felt we were on a completely different wave length. In hindsight would have skipped this stay.
