We are a family of 4 and have never stayed in a hostel. I always thought hostels were for singles. Unfortunately, when we arrived in Boquete, our previous accommodations fell through. We were in a pinch to find a place to sleep for one night. We stopped at Sugar & Spice Bakery on Avenida Central and the owners suggested the hostel in the back of the building! They went back and asked for us if they had room. Sure enough, they had 1 room that would sleep all 4 of us!

It wasn't luxurious, but it had 2 double beds and a bathroom - all were clean and tidy! No A/C, but Boquete is cool enough at night to not matter too much. We slept a little uncomfortably because of that.

The upstairs shared kitchen is a bonus because we wanted to cook breakfast for ourselves in the morning. Even though there are 2 hostel-style dorms upstairs, no one was in them so we had the whole upstairs living space and kitchen to ourselves! The kitchen is pretty well stocked, and though I don't mind washing my own dishes, I can't vouch for the thoroughness of previous tenants. Yuck.

The shared living room has a TV and DVD player, but no cable, so really... just a DVD player.

In any case, we're thankful such a clean and quiet hostel came to our rescue! In a pinch, we'd have no reservations about staying here again. Plus, the best bakery in Panama is right around the corner - YUM!

Clean and affordable,( bathrooms good) and right downtown...next to my favorite breakfast nook, Sugar & Spic e. Also close to Mike's Global Grill, and my favorite restaurant, Big Daddys. If you are a hostal traveler, I recommend this one.

What a nice place! We stayed in a 4-bed dorm and it was spacious, clean and wonderful beds.
Nice clean kitchen, TV, radio and... cheap and nice and quiet! Although it is near the center it is nice and quiet, inside and ou t. Absolutely recommend.
