Stayed here for 2 weeks in April 2015 while taking spanish classes at Hablaya. This hostal is very clean and quiet. The WIFI signal was strong enough for me to stream Netflix from the common area and the dorm room. The staff is incredibly kind and was very helpful throughout my stay. This place has a very homey feel, and... More

We stayed at this hostal for 4 nights. It is quiet, clean and in an excellent location (a few blocks off the main square). The staff was friendly but did not speak any English. The hostal is for those who want a quiet place to lay their head at night. We were in private room #2 which was nothing more... More

I was in Gaia for 2 nights in a private room, in the new building. The room and bathroom were big. The bathroom was just perfect, with nice shower. The bed was a bit disappointing: wasn't that comfortable and pillows were just way too small. The Wi-Fi was not reaching the room, but it was working on the balcony just... More

We stayed in a private room and it was fantastic and newly renovated. There is a babbling creek bordering the back of the property which was nice to sit by. It's walking distance to many restaurants and to Main Street. We wish we could have stayed longer. We will return! Thank you for the fantastic stay :)

We booked our stay at Hostal Gaia. Never having stayed in a hostel before, was a bit apprehensive. Once we arrived and got checked in, all concern was gone. The room was very adequate, the bed comfortable, the hot shower was awesome and the tranquil setting was peaceful, quiet and secure. The office, lounge, kitchen area wasn't big, but didn't... More

We planned to stay here for 3 Nights but finally stayed for 4 Night, just because of the Hostel and the nice people we met there. The kitchen is really really good and we enjoyed to prepare our own dishes in a clean kitchen with the best frying pan we saw on our travel in central america ;-)

Hostal Gaia in Boquete is definitely one of the best places in town. The beds are very comfortable, the hot shower really has a lot of pressure and the staff is really trying to help you whenever they can. But the best feature is the living room with the very comfortable couches, which is just like a casual living room... More

I had the pleasure of living in Hostal Gaia for a month while I was attending Spanish classes in Boquete. It is by far the cleanest, most well-kept, homey hostel I've ever stayed in. The owner is a fantastically kind woman and the other two women who work here are also incredibly nice an helpful. They've recently changed locations and... More

The new location of the hostel is close to the city center, but quiet and at the riverside. The interior is new, modern and very clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly, so we felt very welcome. You will find a perfect equipped kitchen with coffee for free, a nice living room with a library, a terrace and cozy... More
