So i was reading the recent reviews saying the hostel was a party place and it was terrible to sleep at night due to employees being loud... and I WAS SCARED knowing I was going to be staying here the next two nights!
I must say the reviews posts I read where nothing like the actual experience at the Boquete Mamallena Hostel! The staff drinking yes but mainly after 11 its in the back of the hostel where is more like a community center then a party! Travellers joining and talking about where they come from and where they are heading. It was amazing the amount of people that would join in for a few drinks to tell the stories of previous travels.
The staff always friendly and would offer to give you a drink just for a story! Everyone is very friendly and speaks both spanish and english so communication was very easy. They where located right off the bus stop and they have a buzzer if the door is closed first thing in the morning so they immediately let you in and provide you with quick accomidations.
I have enjoyed the past two days I have spent at this outstanding location and I will probably be visiting again once I get back from South America!
