Placed on a quiet street close to the centre of Boquete this hostel provides excellent value for money. The rooms are clean, and despite the presence of two dogs and a parrot (friendly greeting with "Hola" each time you are entering the building) it was quiet for a nice sleep.
The owner and the staff were very helpful. Highly recommended!

Ive been to boquete before and have been to other hotels/hostels and I would say that for the price this is the cleanest and quietest BandB/Hostel Ive been to in Panama yet. Rooms were very clean, owner was very helpful, and rooms were cheap. Cheaper than some other hostels that claim to be better. Not a party place though, does have a kitchen you can use however. Good place for budget travelers. A+
note: there are kids and a bird that make a little noise, not a problem if you dont mind that sort of thing.

We found this place via Lonely Planet and we called there in advance to reassure us about availability. Frank, the owner is a really nice guy who has his origins in Croatia. The rooms are simple and tidied up, they are very clean (probably the cleanest in our entire 5-week-stay in Panama and Costa Rica - really incredible value for little money!). There is no AC, but you would not need it anyway in the cool highlands of Boquete. If you want, there is a shared kitchen that you can use (we preffered going out and enjoying local reasonable-priced food). There are rooms with private and shared bathroom ($20/16) available. It was really nice talking to Frank, he always had an open ear for questions and our stories.
There is a parrot welcoming you (saying "Hola"), but take care - she might bite you, when you wanna touch her. :) The two dogs are not useful as watchdogs at all (one night we came home after dinner around 10 and they havent even moved their heads to see who was coming), they are a bit smelly but really friendly and always happy being pet.
We would definitely go there again every time and we really enjoyed this nice town up in the hills (apparently being back in Panama city now, we wished having stayed there longer and being back there again!)

This is a place where you get more for your money. It is very very clean, new, proper. It is more a hotel than a hostel. Owners are gentle and kind. You feel as at home. It is not a place for drinkers. There are children and don't go there to make a fiesta. There will be no fiesta anyway. Just go there and enjoy your stay. The price is more than reasonable. You can use kitchen, there is dining room. Just perfect place if we could only find more such places

I stayed here for 3 nights in early September 2012 with my husband. Our room was spacious, with a full bed plus twin bed, dresser, night stand, and private bathroom. We were provided clean towels daily. Our room had a lovely view of the garden. It was a bit noisy because of the 2 dogs, 4 small children, and a parrot. Otherwise, it was great! It is located just 2 blocks from Central Park. Frank, the owner, was very friendly, and spoke perfect English. We paid $20 per night for the two of us. Pension Marilos is a good choice for travelers of any age looking for a safe place, in a good location.

Great place to stay in Boquete! You feel more like you are actually staying with a family than in a hotel. The rooms are great (and cheap too!), you can use the kitchen, the Internet connection is reliable and it's a 5-min walk to the supermarket / main square. The downside is that the showers are lukewarm at best (I only had hot water once).
When I arrived in Boquete I was thinking of staying 3 nights but I ended up staying for more than one week, partly because I felt at home at Pension Marilos.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the garden rather than the street - it will be even quieter.
