So, what can I say, I came back to do everything I missed the first time. Their offer is unbeatable, better than boquete and the owners are incredible people. Old building been renovated as they go. This is a rugged , adventure, experience hostel, if you are not looking for this then is not for you. The most important thing is they take you to places that are not part of the touristy route, and this makes it extremely special! We even discovered together a new place :D.
