We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. It´s definitely not the fanciest or cleanest hostel I´ve ever stayed in, but you will not beat the friendly service anywhere. The owner, Francisco, will give you the greatest introduction to Boquete you could hope for. He makes you feel more like a house guest than a customer, which is... More

One of the worst accommodation in my life.The first three nights were O.K., quite noise, dirty, but so, so. The real horror night started on Saturday, when they brought some friends to the Hostel. The owners started smoking marijuana and drinking around 1 am. They started singing and shouting. Some of them started to complain about us that we are... More

Three of us friends stayed here for two nights in a triple room, and while not the most modern looking place, it certainly has character. I would defo recommend staying here as it felt very safe. You will be welcomed in by pancho and his family so you will be a name not just a number. The very excitable Pancho... More

It´s a place full of character in terms of the design and the super enthusiastic owner! Rooms are OK, bathrooms a bit smelly but OK and there is a great garden area where you can see watch tropical birds eating bananas. The kitchen is also a bit dirty but I definitely reccommend the place because despite its faults, it is... More

We stayed here for three nights and overall had a good time. The hostel is located perfectly in the heart of town (right in front of the bus station). The owner, Pancho, is a nice guy but can talk a bit much sometimes. We had a problem with the hot water as it only worked on the first night and... More

This is the first time I have felt moved to review a place, but I have to pass on the warning, especially after noting that other travelers have experienced this.....I was robbed of $45 while staying at Hostel Palacio. I arrived late at night, and in the morning when I was planning to pay the owner, I couldn't find my... More

If you are looking for a great price on a Hostal, with very friendly management then this is your place. We stayed for 2 nights in a private room with 1 queen size bed and an ensuite private bathroom with shower for $40USD total for the 2 nights. A great value that included free wifi (though it only worked in... More

Pancho was very charming and likable at first, however after hearing him and his wife screaming at each other all day we felt a little uneasy. On top of that we had an army of ants marching through our room on two seperate occassions (but Pancho did get rid of them for us with spray). The kitchen was pretty dirty... More

We got off the bus right in the city center and Pancho came to us to offer a private room. We accepted for a night and then decided to stay for 3 nights more paying everything in advance. He was really kind and helpfull, giving us a lot of information and always asking us about our stay. We noted there... More

We've visited this place back in July 2012. It feels like staying at a family. I don't get these bad two reviews beneath me, because this owner is the best you can wish in a hostel. He will give you good advice about visits in the area, draws everything on a map for you and bakes even bananas. He also... More
