“Great location and very friendly staff and owner”
Reviewed 24 July 2009

This hostal has a great location in town and is within walking distance of the bus ´terminal´, restaurants and grocery stores. David, the owner, is very helpful in sorting out activities and transportation. He is a great, honest guy and definitely made our stay more enjoable! The hot water was a bit finicky in our room, but there is hot water. Our room also had a tv and DVD player so we rented a movie one night in town which was nice.

Hammocks and rooms by the river, short walk to lots of great cafe's and restaurants. Rent a scooter and put on some sunscreen!

Great value and great location by the river! Ask for the private balcony room facing the river. The owner is amazingly helpful. He can point you in the right direction with whatever you are looking for. Wonderful to relax by the river after a day full of adventures in Boquete!

Riverfront location, rainbows in every direction, and an owner who happily assists you in coordinating all your activities and with good recommendations for eating and entertainment. Boquete is a lovely town and this place felt like home immediately. The guest were a nice variety of locals and travelers of all ages from all parts of the world. There are hammocks and great open spaces in the back for relaxing riverside. Feels like home away from home. We stayed 5 nights and would have happily stayed another five. Rooms are basic and clean, nothing fancy, but you aren't there to spend time in the room!

Great place to stay. They have private rooms and shared rooms. In the hotel lobby they are more than happy to help you with anything you may need(tours, travel, etc).
I stayed there 2 nights and lucked out because I had a small house all to myself for 2 nights for $33/night. It had two full baths and 2 bedrooms. Kitchen and back porch looking over the river. I am sure if someone else checked in I would have had to share the other bedroom, but lucked out. My only complaint was that the furniture was pretty worn out, but hey... you can't beat the price and location.
I also recommend visiting the animal rescue center ($5 and $1 cab ride to get there) and great gardens "Mi jardin es tu jardin" (free). I also recommend taking a coffee tour. I thought I knew something about coffee, but quickly learned I did not know much at all.
