We stayed in one of the private rooms for a few days. Our room was in serious need of a renovation and to be cleaned better (they must have made and emergency cleaning of our room when we arrived, because a wet cleaning cloth was lying on our bed). The kitchen lacks cuttlery and other necessities. It is also dirty,... More

We have had a lovely stay for 3 nights in this family runned hostel. The family is very hospitable and knows exactly what to do where without paying a lot of operators, if you can easily do it cheaper in a different and even nicer way. The rooms were basic but a lovely warm shower! Wifi was good and the... More

This hostal is the place to go of you want great information about Boquete and its surrounding areas. The hostal owners (husband and wife) are clearly passionate about what they do and enjoy talking with and helping travelers. This hostal really feels more like a home stay so if you are uncomfortable noise and commotion you may want to stay... More

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
